What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

I hope your new routine feels comfortable to you all soon.

Our homeschool feels different this year too. Of course, mine are K and 2nd grade...this is only our second year. I feel like I don't have to be so "in control" this year. I have learned to relax a bit more and take things as they come. My oldest is able to be a bit more independent...which is REALLY nice!
I am also finding that we can "low tide" a bit more and still accomplish a lot because we don't get the attitudes since I'm not rushing through cracking the whip and fighting for every second.
I feel like I have been able to persue more of a "lifestyle of learning" throughout our day as opposed to only a set school time at the table.
Isn't it wonderful when you start to get comfortable in your own skin and you can watch God work instead of trying to keep up with whomever and spend all day trying to fit God into your school??
I hope your new routine begins to feel comfortable very soon!!!!

Just stumbled onto your blog while I was looking for Girl Scout cake ideas, and it is like you are reading my mind. Homeschooling is very different this year than last year. I hope thing smooth out soon.

Nice to meet you! Thanks for saying hello.

My sister has been doing something different while homeschooling her daughter this year. Instead of looking at her daughter's curriculum as a set of subjects scheduled for each day, she has made a rotation of subjects, so say that the rotation is (making this up) Bible, History, Science, Math, reading...since math and reading were at the end of the rotation and they didn't get to them because they wanted to really focus on the subjects that came before in the rotation, they just pick up where they left off in the subject rotation, so her daughter can really learn the material even if it means doing more work in one subject per day...wow, did I make any sense?
