Another school year is just around the corner. With the new school year come the new homeschool moms who are starting this journey for the first time. I can see her now. She’s probably sitting in the midst of a pile of curriculum, planning out every moment, and setting up huge dreams for her homeschool. Or… She’s overwhelmed. Which one are you? It can get overwhelming at the beginning so I thought it would help to share 10 things new homeschoolers really need!
Ok, so let’s just be 100% transparent for a minute here. The house was a mess, chores weren’t getting done, and I forgot what a meal plan even was this year. Don’t get me wrong. I had the best of intentions. Then a lot of life happened and I just hit survival mode with all I had. Suddenly, I started doing the bare minimum and things just worked the best they could around here. That said, it’s time for a reset. It’s time for me to reclaim the crazy and get things running smoothly again. That’s where my Summer reset comes into play. I’m going to be using summer to reset the home!
Using Summer to Reset The Home
My kids are amazing cooks. My daughter is very famous for going into the kitchen and making whatever she is in the mood for. This could be anything from pancakes to a full dinner depending on the day. I was talking to a blogging friend recently who seemed shocked that I let my kids cook. Other friends were surprised to hear that my 7-year-old cooks on the stove top. I never really thought about doing it any other way, to be honest. That said, I wanted to share some tips for trusting kids in the kitchen. Your child can cook if you give them some basic tips and skills.
