My name is Anna Witt. My family and I live outside of Palmer, in the beautiful Matanuska-Susitna Valley in Southcentral Alaska. We enjoy the rugged landscape of the Talkeetna Mountains, the midnight sun, and the northern lights. I met my husband, Casey, while he was on a fishing trip to Alaska, and we look forward to celebrating our 15th anniversary in 2020. We have four beautiful children, nine-year-old twin girls and two boys, ages 4 and 1.

Due to the accelerated issues and health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are implementing the following changes related to physical meetings. Please know that these decisions are the direct result of much prayer and lost sleep by our entire management team, and you as well. There are no easy or best decisions in times like this, but there is faith in God to direct us and I believe He is doing just that.

My name is Abbie Knott. I’ve been married to my husband, Michael, for 11 years, and we have four children: Emma (10), Callie (8), Gabriel (5), and Regan (3). I’m a second-generation homeschooler and the oldest of six.

I loved being homeschooled. My mom (and dad) gave us a comprehensive, well-rounded education. We all attended the local public high school from 10th grade until graduation, and we all did well academically, but I felt like there was so much time wasted in public school. I hoped to be able to homeschool my children in the future.

1902 was the year the first official homeschooling chapter was created in Iowa (Chapter 14-A Section 2823-a). Iowa's homeschooling history has always been hit with many side swings, but Iowa has continued with a strong backbone. I remember growing up in a time where my parents talked about moving out of state just so they could continue homeschooling. I am thankful for those who have fought, and continue to fight, for our homeschooling freedoms we have today. Read more about Iowa's homeschooling historyHERE.

In my last post, I wrote about some ways you can tell if you need to take a break from schoolwork. We work hard at our studies and try to keep a predictable school routine. Sometimes we just need to take a break, and I bet your family is pretty similar. Our routine can start to feel really exhausting between therapy, school, chores, and errands. If you have kids with challenges like mine, you may need to take a break or a half-day more often. Try to focus on making progress, not completing every single thing in your curriculum. Without further ado, here are our ten favorite ideas to use on your spontaneous day off! Choose one or a few and have some fun with your family!

There was a time that I set a strict schedule for school. I am a teacher by trade, so it is in my nature to schedule everything. I scheduled start dates, end dates, days off, vacation dates, it was great! And then life happened.

What happened next for me was a sinking feeling of failure and guilt. We were BEHIND!!! How many times do I hear that phrase in the homeschool community?!? Living life in a constant state of self-imposed guilt is no way to live, and honestly, if you are feeling it, your kids are probably feeling it, too.

I had the precious opportunity to babysit my almost five-year-old grandson and my 19-month grandson for a week while their parents took a restful and quiet trip together. I had all kinds of ideas about how we spend the days together. I had grand plans of places where we would go and things we would do. We did manage to enjoy a few of those activities, including building a gingerbread house together!

Michigan is a diverse state. You can find everything, from skiing to surfing right here in our beautiful state. Another benefit of living here is that there are no reporting requirements placed on homeschoolers. We are free to educate our children as we see fit, without government oversight.

Words Have Meaning

I have been an avid reader all my life. I was homeschooled through 9th grade, so I had plenty of time to read. My yearly booklists in my portfolio usually had 50-70 books listed, and they were just samplings of what I read because I didn’t always remember to write down the title and author before returning books to the library. I read multiple genres. I read books written in different centuries.
