How I Juggle Homeschooling, Housework and Work as a Single Mom

Juggling homeschool, housework and work as a single mom can be a challenge, but not one that can't be accomplished.

"How do you do it all?" 

It's a question I'm asked all the time. If I'm not asked how I do it all, I'm asked, "How can I do it all?

Can you do it all? Is it possible? That depends. What does all mean to you?

I'm a single mom. That means working, maintaining a household, and homeschooling. I must be mom and dad. 

In other words, I have to bring home the bacon, fry it, and teach the kids how it came to be bacon. That's what all means to me. 

So how do I do it?

A Living History Field Trip: Barberville Pioneer Settlement

The Barberville Pioneer Settlement in Florida is a must-do homeschool field trip. Find out about this hands-on living history lesson.

We love history field trips. 

Today, we visited the Barberville Pioneer Settlement. I've wanted to go here for a few years, but never got around to it. When one of my homeschool groups planned this one, I couldn't refuse. After all, I now live 10 minutes away from it. I've got no excuses.

We took two of their tours: The Pioneer Program and the Lassie Cake Program.

It was a long, hot day. I was concerned with how well Lorelai would or wouldn't do in the heat, but we managed to keep her body and moods at an acceptably cool level. 

This field trip was one of the best educational field trips we've ever taken. I think each of us learned something from it.

Homeschool Showcase #135: A Hodgepodge of Resources

Welcome to the Homeschool Showcase 

This is where we spotlight all the encouraging, inspiring and just plain fun ways that homeschooling families live and learn together.

Edition #135 of the Homeschool Showcase is a hodgepodge of resources offering help, encouragement and hands-on activities.

I'm a bit late with this post. Actually, I'm really late with this post. 

I've had a lot going on in my life and I've not had much online time at all. In fact, today is the first time I've been on my laptop in nearly three weeks. No kidding.

I've been away from home a lot. I went to South Carolina and have been helping my daughter who is bed-ridden with Hyperemesis gravidarum. It's been hectic. I've spent more time in her guest room than in my own house. I'm home now and attempting to get back on track.

This edition of the Homeschool Showcase offers a lot of fun resources. Grab your tea, coffee or other beverage of choice and enjoy the read. Please be sure to submit your posts for the next edition, too!
