Fanatic News Flash by the Month, Tips for Homeschooling Mamas

Fanatic News Flash – May 2020

Same thing, different month - right? We have still been plugging away at our homeschooling without field trips, co-ops, or park days. It's been kind of nice not running around to every event, and for the most part, we've been doing what we have always done. Because the majority of our life does revolve around… Continue reading Fanatic News Flash – May 2020

TIME- What if you had a MILLION extra minutes?

My monthly newsletter was almost ready when it took a whole other direction. Since we are "springing forward", I turned my direction to clocks, and my normal monthly newsletter evolved into something I thought was more "timely". Fanatic News Flash will resume next month. Is it me, or weren't we just ringing in the new… Continue reading TIME- What if you had a MILLION extra minutes?

Fanatic News Flash-February 2020

It's a big month for our family! Our first born will be turning 16 towards month's end. As a mama, I'm both thrilled and terrified. I suppose that's normal for those who have 'been down that road' before. She's definitely ready, I'm definitely not. Watching your kids grow up is much more difficult than I… Continue reading Fanatic News Flash-February 2020

Fanatic News Flash – January 2020

A fresh start. A clean slate. A time of review and renewal. That's what a new year is to me, and that's why I love it so much!

Although the spectacle lasts less than 20 minutes,… Continue reading Fanatic News Flash – January 2020

I don't know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed my November. I did not do anything December related - no shopping, no decorating, and no over-planning.

Fanatic News Flash – November

November happens to be one of my favorite months! The weather is finally starting to feel like fall, we have got a good routine going in our homeschool, and we have a family tradition of taking a mini vacation over Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, November is a month that gets overshadowed by the frenzy of Christmas. It's… Continue reading Fanatic News Flash – November

We are starting the school year off with a bang this week! New classes, new school supplies, new routines, and a hurricane! Last year, our homeschool was in session a mere 10 days before Hurricane Florence visited our town. This year, the first activity of our first day of school was heading out to get… Continue reading Fanatic News Flash – September

Fanatic News Flash – August

Can someone tell me where June and July went? I can't believe how fast this summer has flown by! August is here and moms everywhere are counting down the days until school starts. I am too, of course, but probably for different reasons. Some may be celebrating, (and I'll do my best not to covet… Continue reading Fanatic News Flash – August
