A new school homeschool year can present formidable challenges when the anticipated first day of school ends up disappointingly overloaded, stressed, and frustrating.
This is a simple way to avoid that. Break that first day of school into smaller, more reasonably sized activities that you do before you actually want to begin your bookwork.
See how Melanie did her homeschooling startup this year.
- On Thursday, the children received school surprises and set up their school books.
- On Friday, Melanie had individual meetings with each child to discuss the school year, what their schedule would look like, and how they would move through it each day with their assignments.
- Monday was the “real” first day of school, and they were ready to follow their school and do their actual school work.
Trusting in Jesus,

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the
Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:20).
