"'Twas the first day of homeschool," begins the poetic tale of a young child's return to schooling. The story weaves through the exciting first day as the family enjoys a special time of learning, helping, and sharing together - interrupted only by a mischievous visit from Homeschool Elf who hides the children's school supplies and sends them on a hunt to find the missing books, pencils, and more! In addition to the story text, younger children will enjoy trying to find the hidden Homeschool Elf peeking out from the book illustrations while older children are encouraged to interact with the story by answering questions related to the text and their own homeschool experiences. For those eager to begin their own Homeschool Elf tradition - a pattern of Homeschool Elf has been included at the back of the book. We recommend copying the pattern and cutting it out so if something happens to Homeschool Elf during the year, you will always have a pattern to replace him.

Are you feeling disheartened, discouraged, or lost on the homeschooling journey? It doesn't have to be so complicated... I want to tell you to stop. Slow down. Stop chasing. Stop striving. Stop making it about the world. Make it about Him. This world and all it has passes away, but He is eternal. Stop. Look in your child's eyes. Focus on the relationship with your child. At that moment. These are the things that matter for eternity. Let the extras go...if they are bogging you down, then they aren't meant to be there. This journey isn't going to last forever. In fact, each year it gets shorter and shorter...so do it well. I always tell my kids to do all tasks well. Whatever lies before them, no matter how big or small, do it well. So, we as homeschool moms...are we doing it well? Are you stretched so thin we are giving a little in a lot of places? Or are we focused on what really matters? Join me as we get back to the heart of our homeschools and simply...homeschool. *Get rid of physical and mental "clutter" *Meal planning tips *Homeschooling multiple ages *Simple Preschool *Schedules *Choosing Curriculum *..and more!
