Have you enjoyed our summer blog series, The Hardest Part of My Homeschool Year?
Has it encouraged you, reminding you that you’re not alone and that it is possible to homeschool even through challenges?
Our series is nearly finished and now I’d love to invite you to join in. On Monday, September 14th I’ll host a linkup here where you can share about the hardest part of your past homeschool year.
So between now and then, write a post on your own blog telling your story, then come by on the 14th to share it here. Does talking about the hard stuff seem like a strange way to kick off a new school year?
I actually think it makes perfect sense–we can write vulnerably about not just our struggles, but how we’re navigating them, giving hope and courage to those who read our words.
Please take the time to share your hard to help others! And now on to this week’s links:

After using Little Passports for nearly TWO years, here’s my official opinion: It has been such a fun addition to our geography study, & has fit in perfectly with our interest-led philosophy.
I have at times heard readers complain that LP is too “light,” not enough content. I have to say this is precisely why I like it! It never makes me feel overwhelmed, not another thing to “get through,” but just to enjoy, making it a good fit for 6-10 year-olds.
“True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own.”
