Welcome to My Home School Journey

This blog was created for a few reasons. 
The first reason was to document my Home Schooling Journey.  There are so any families that homeschool and I would love to use this blog as a way to network with other homeschooling families and share my experiences and discoveries with them.
The reason I choose to Home school now: My children deserve the best and I am confident based on our circumstance I can offer the best.  I want to be an active role in my children’s education and in reflection I have definitely dropped the ball on that.  I love teaching and what better students then my own children.
I hope that what I share here is encouraging and a help to those who read.
Our official 1st Day at Shining Stars Home School is January 2, 2013.  We will be having a thematic unit across the grade levels each Month.  January will be Animals… they voted and they won.  We all agreed that February will be Black History and we will decide on March later.
Each child will create a notebook on the theme for the month.  In the notebook all activities that produce a product that is theme based will be placed in the notebook.  It will include vocabulary, artwork, photos, book reviews, and creative writing and more. 
Pray for me and my families.  I know that with his help this will be a great success!

If you have a homeschooling Blog please post your link in comments.  I would love to connect with you.



  1. How exciting to start the journey of homeschooling! We have been homeschooling for the past almost two years and there has been many wonderful results. Prayer for sure and a lot of patience. I posted a few times on my site about my experience. We are moving overseas and the children will go back to school for the next season. Blessings on you and your precious family.

    1. Thanks for the encouragement and posting your link... I love some of your organization tips! I really need ideas because I have a large home it's just how it is set-up that is going to be the dilema... I have a chaise lounge sofa in my dinnng room because it is huge it was suppose to be my reading space by the window however I rarely use it so I may be reoving it and it will free up a lot of space to put supplies...
