Our Easter Traditions

In this video, I am sharing many of our traditions for Holy Week and Easter. We are a Roman and Byzantine Catholic family, so many of our traditions are a mix of both. Please leave a comment with how you celebrate Easter!

This is a collaboration with my friend Becca Glass.

Help for an Overscheduled Homeschool

When we first started homeschooling, I completely overscheduled our family.  I felt like we needed to use every curriculum, do every extracurricular activity, and constantly keep busy.  It was incredibly overwhelming, especially since I had five children until nine at the time.  What was I thinking?!

Here is some advice that I’ve gathered over the years to prevent this from happening again.  I hope it helps you!

Spring Homeschool Haul

I have five children and we needed a few extra things for the end of the school year.  We have a *huge* Dollar Tree in our town, where I found most of these items, but I always picked up a few things from Amazon (links below).

This is a collab with my friend, Madison Hopper. Make sure you check out her channel, too! Madison’s Video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGU8z…
