And another weekend of the summer gone and I am still not prepared. It is so out of character for me not to have all of our homeschool plans completely figured out and curriculum sitting on the shelf waiting.

I’m a little concerned that I am going to have some issues finding what I need when I figure it out because there are so many new homeschoolers this year that are buying up anything and everything.

Our own local Facebook group has grown exponentially over the last few months, and there are a lot of panicked parent messages on their daily.

I feel for anyone that has been thrown into this without any warnings or preparation. It was hard enough a billion years ago after I spent an entire year reading and researching before making the decision.

I think that I will probably start seriously planning it out this week. I hate going onto some of the homeschool forums and seeing what some of these kids are doing.

It is a good way to make you feel like you are failing everyone :/

But I guess that is the norm in most situations.

I’ll just use it for ideas to toss around, or introductions to some curriculum choices that I may not know exist.

There are so many options now that it is hard to weed out the good from bad, or the religious and secular without reading peoples experiences with them.

This is mainly what I use these forums for now.

I will say that one positive thing that came out of the last few months is that it has made Roo realize that no matter how well paying or “important” your job was or how much you paid for your schooling, nothing is guaranteed.

The essential job list was small and she is considering maybe going into a trade.

She has always loved taking things apart, tinkering with them and then putting them back together and thinks that she might like being a mechanic or an electrician.

I say women in trades need to be shown more as an option for girls and should be celebrated.

  1. Hi Sara, could you explain the difference in fit between the rib cage and wedgie jeans, please? Thanks so much.

    • Definitely! The Ribcage fit significantly higher on the waistline. They are very reminiscent of 70s style jeans and I would suggest going up a size in them. The legs tend to be a bit wider. The straights are my favourite. They are more traditional to the original 90s 501s but come in different lengths which I like. I get the cropped which is 26″ and fit my shorter legs better. Get your regular waist size in these. The 100% cotton washes will fit tight at first and you may think you need a bigger size but they stretch out to fit you perfectly. They get better every time you wear them. I hope that helps!


  2. Thanks for your reply; really appreciate it. I’m short waisted and thought that the Ribcage fit may be a good option for me.But I also like the wedgie and the way they look. Too many choices! I enjoy your postings so much.

  3. I would love to read again about the curriculum you will use this year. Even though i don’t homeschool, unfortunately, i like to give my kids extra work at home, something different from what they use at school. I used some of the books you listed last year. Thank you.

    • I’m glad that there was some useful things in there for you! I’ve procrastinated so bad this year. I usually start planning in April/May 😬 I’ve started getting it together this week and I hope I can find what I’m looking for, because I didn’t think about how many more people would be buying curriculum this year until recently. I’m kicking myself a little bit for that. I will probably have to buy a few Pdf or digital downloads instead of hard copies in that case. I’ll do a post when I finalize our plans. Thank you!
