Did you know that if you have a minimum of two paid jobs in high school you are five times more likely to succeed in the future? I actually had no idea of this statistic until I went to the Yippe Conference. In this blog post I will share with you some of the suggestions as to how parents can help with the transition. I will be explaining how I am working on that transition. I thought this might be helpful to all.

Do you like to use unit studies with your kids? What about making things you can create while learning and making it a keepsake? My daughter is really enjoying learning about Ancient Greece. We received HISTORY Through the Ages Project Passport World History Study: Ancient Greece for our review, by Homeschool in the Woods. This can be used with students in grades 3 – 8. For this review I received the download.
This week went by so fast but ended on a really fun note for the kids. We actually got away for a night and I even got to tie homeschool into our get away! I love when I can do that. What’s even more I love that the kids had fun! I am waiting patiently for the end of the month to come so I can order our new curriculum for the year.
Do you like search for new furniture and decor for your home? If so I suggest that you check out Wayfair for all your home decorating needs. I actually just first learned about them today. The first thing I had to check out was the kids bedrooms. I am not really at a point where I need things at the moment, but in the future I will be on the hunt for new things for the kids bedrooms, once we find a bigger house. It’s nice to be able to shop from home and take a peek at things and get ideas for the different things I can do.
