How I Wrapped Up My Studies Before a Busy Summer!

Hey Guys! These last few weeks have been extremely busy! I submitted my LAST assignment for Charter Oak State College’s Cornerstone Course (online) a couple of days ago, and I received my final grade for the Business and Professional Communication class I have been taking at the junior college (on campus). Which, by the way, was my last class ever there! After three years I...

How to Make Sure School Happens (When Life Keeps Getting in the Way)

As homeschooling parents, we take our children’s education very seriously. We have made a monumental commitment to help them learn and grow purposely and thoughtfully from curious children into compassionate and successful adults. While education is important, we are also charged with managing a sometimes hectic household. Homeschooling and keeping house can work together very well at the best of times. It’s the less-than-best-of-times that...

Aiming for 100 credits soon!

Hey guys! So as y’all should already know (if you’ve been reading my blog), I’ve just enrolled at Charter Oak State College (COSC). [Go mighty live-oak trees!!! – (sarcasm)] I am only taking one course because I am fulfilling all of the other degree requirements with CollegeBoard’s CLEP exams and other college-level exams. The course that I am taking is required for graduation, and it...

Before Going out on Their Own: Skills Every Young Adult Should Learn

Your kids will not live with you forever! Inevitably they will venture out on their own, using all of their acquired skills to spread their wings and fly. They will learn to become independent all on their own, but you can still teach them a thing or two while you have their attention. We have a quote on the wall here at our house that...

Humanities Passed!

Hey Guys! I finally took the Humanities CLEP test and I passed! 😀 I was kind of scared about this one because I was not doing very well on the Peterson’s practice tests although I was passing all of the other practice tests with high scores. (Sometimes I think the Peterson’s tests are harder than the official tests.) That’s six more credits (2 semesters of...

Humanities Test Coming Up!

Hey Guys! So I’ve decided to wait one more week for this Humanities CLEP. I still don’t feel quite comfortable with the material. However, I did give my speech in class on Monday so I get to stop sweating over that and can put my full attention into this test. (I’m taking a Professional Speech & Communication class at the junior college with my older...

Officially Applied to Charter Oak State College!

So last week I took the CLEP American Government exam. I was going to take Humanities with it, and I’d actually been studying for it a couple of weeks before I took American Government, but since I’m not very good at poetry and I don’t really like it, I’m not ready yet. So I went ahead and just took American Government by itself. I’d studied...

How to Build a Great College Application For a Traditional College Degree

Over the past year, I’ve spoken with many home schooling parents and here are two thoughts that come up often. #1 – “What courses/activities/etc. make an outstanding college application “package?” #2 – “What should we be doing during high school to build an impressive resume/transcript?” How you approach these matters helps set the course for your child’s future. Note: Parents and students are increasingly choosing...

9 Great Field Trip Ideas for Teens

Being familiar with your destination is a huge part of making the most of field trips – talk about the trip in advance, look at a map, visit the website, have a purpose for the visit. Go slow and enjoy the time together. Stop long enough for lunch – make eye contact, tell them you’re enjoying the time with them, talk about what you’ve seen/learned...
