Happy New Year!

New year, new school resolutions!
How many of your are making some new resolutions in your homeschool for 2014?
Homeschooling high school is always a challenge.
Are they learning enough? Are they keeping up with their peers? Will they be ready for college? Am I challenging them? UGH! The choices a homeschooling parent has to make!!

So, we are changing up our most of my readers know that MATH is our issue here and finding something that works and we understand is ALWAYS a challenge.

We are adding Home Ec to our weekly routine as well. Trying to get these boys ready for the real world. They will learn how to do laundry, sew buttons and hems, cook a few simple meals and clean and iron. Plus balance their checkbook, pay bills and anything else I can come up with!!!

I figure a lot of the Home Ec stuff can also be crossed over with science! Cooking is a lesson on change in matter! So is doing laundry.

And I will be enforcing the time limit on video game playing vs. doing our schoolwork!! Hate being the mean Mom but I am tired of lessons being ignored while video games are played!!!

So, what are you changing in your homeschool for 2014?

Happy Homeschooling!
