Preparation for a New Year of Blogging~

It's a brand new school year and we are off to a good, solid start. I have many articles and posts planned for this upcoming school year and decided I really needed a better way to keep things more organized and so, for me, that meant better planning.

I went searching for something I thought I would never need or use a blog planner! After searching around and finding some wonderful thing I thought I would share these with my own readers who also have blogs of their own;

here are some of the goodies I found: ( I am always amazed by people's creativity and ideas, these are really wonderful free pieces of work and inspiration) 

Enjoy and Happy Planning! ( click on the photo credit to follow the link) 

ONE MORE THING: my friend Chrissy (thanks girly) shared this with me as I was sharing over on HS Necessities about my organizing. The organizing fun never stops!

A New School Year Begins~

Autumn is here and that means a new school year for us and the end of our summer vacation.

We started back to school this past week. It went surprisingly well!

I found this was the first year there were not too many issues or problems getting things going. In years past we had to ramp slowly but this year we are doing pretty well.

The boys are working completely separate now for their studies. The difference between highschool and middle school lessons are becoming increasingly apparent and I felt that boys would be much more successful working separately and I have found I was right.

We are starting our 7th year of homeschooling and by now I can clearly see what the boys strengths and abilities are. Where they need more work and how best to meet their needs.

I noticed one thing for sure and that is that they continue to evolve in their strengths and in their interests.  It can be hard sometimes to keep up with the change but I think I have finalized things out and we are right on track as to which direction we are going.

I will be sharing about those changes as the weeks move forward and how the changes have helped them become more successful in their learning.

I am also going to be starting a series this year that pertains specifically toward homeschooling teens. In this new series I plan on sharing parenting and learning issues. I realized that there isn't really all that much out there when it comes to homeschooling our teens so I thought I would share suggestions, ideas, tips and examples that readers may find helpful.

I hope everyone is planning or has had a great first start to their new year of learning!
