Carving Out Homeschool Togetherness with Teens

Getting teens together at the same time is hard. Different subjects studied, work schedules, social life, sleep schedules. Carving out that homeschool togetherness in the high school years is a challenge. Yet time is slipping away from me. Next year will be my oldest son’s last year homeschooling, then he’s off to college classes. Even if that’s a local community college, he’ll be out of the house. The cozy time learning together will be a thing of the past.

So I started a thing in April where I make up a fruit and cheese tray at 10 am and we do our high school English together. Each week at the grocery store I’ll select a new speciality cheese to try just for English hour. I’ve found food usually does the trick to draw teens around a common spot. Moths to a flame, you guys.

  • I sold my Brave Learner brunch ticket so I could head back early Saturday to celebrate my 23rd anniversary. I was torn because Brave Writer people are THE BEST people to hang with. I can’t get enough of them. But my husband is kinda awesome too. He won out. 😉 And this anniversary present is one reason why.

He bought it for me because it’s so me. I know, I know, cussing isn’t really something you associate with a homeschool mom. But I’m a cusser in private. I #%*?!#& am! Of course my husband knows this about me. He loves me anyway. He not only loves it, he celebrates it too. 😍
  • Face to face! Finally! These two women, @jeanne_faulconer_ and @stephelms, feel like the sisters I always wanted. Wise, generous, they’re always there to talk me off the ledge of parenting teen boys. They are a big part of helping me be the parent I want to be. I hope they know how much I love ‘em. #bravelearnerconf #brave writer #homeschoolalliance

  • Moving from Raleigh two years ago was so hard. Mary is one reason why. We used meet at Starbucks and talk Brave Writer. All of her fun ideas were inspiring. It’s been two years since we’ve seen each other. It’s like a day hasn’t passed. It’s going to be hard to say goodbye again tomorrow. #bravelearnerconf @notbefore7 #bravewriterteens #bravelearner
