Welcome back to the Practical Ideas for Homeschooling Moms Blog Hop!
Thank you for visiting our blog hop again today! We are in our 8th week of the Blog Hop, and I absolutely love it. It has been so refreshing to read new-to-me ideas and enjoy homemaking and homeschooling tips.
In an online sea of overwhelming information, the Practical Ideas for Homeschooling Moms Blog Hop provides nuggets of ideas, resources, and helps for the homeschool mom.
Each week, the Blog Hop hosts blog posts that are written by other wives and mothers who have wisdom and experience to share. Find help with choosing curriculum, setting up and maintaining schedules, homeschooling in times of crisis, wisdom from years and years of experience, and more.
Read about various homeschool helps, but also ideas and resources for managing our homes more efficiently.
I can’t wait to personally read every single one of those!
If you’re a blogger, please add your best ideas, resources, and tips for homeschool moms to the link up. We would love to have you!
This link up runs Tuesday morning through Thursday night at 11:59 pm Eastern.
If you’re not familiar with a blog hop, the concept is simple: Bloggers host a link up each week focusing on a particular topic. Readers find new posts and sites to read, and bloggers share their best links.
It’s a marvelous way to find new sites and bloggers that share the topics you’re interested in!
Practical Tip from Mama’s this Week
Even though we were not Classical homeschoolers at the beginning of our homeschool lives, our family certainly is now. There are a multitude of philosophies in the educational world, and I had to do a lot of research and a whole lot of praying to understand the path that God wanted us to follow.
For our family, that turned out to be Classical education.
I, however, was educated in a very poor, rural K-12 public school, so the concept of Classical education was very foreign to me. I had to start from scratch in teaching myself just the basics.
Here’s a list of resources I used to teach myself how to educate my children in the Classical method.
If you are new to homeschooling and it’s various philosophies and methods, browse through the resources I mention and see if it is the best fit for your family as well!

I also enjoyed reading about this DIY Solar Oven from Wonderfully Messy Mom! Now that’s neat!
The project looks really easy, and in fact, the author said her 9-year-old son made most of the project himself.
I’m tucking this away for those late July days here in NC, when we’re all sure we’re about to dry up from the excessive heat!
