Homeschool Unrefined

May 4, 2020

It feels like we're on a roll with routines and academic progress... but we're also wondering: Where do we go from here? Are we going to take a summer break? Should we be signing up for fall activities? We talk through this and more in our two segments: "State of the Family" (what's going on) and "The Nitty Gritty" (what we're actually doing every day).


Highlights from this episode: 

-Are we going to take a summer break? What about signing up for fall things? It's hard to know what to do!


-Where are we at with screen time? Angela shares an update about the changes to their screen routine.


-What about unmet academic expectations? Maren talks about deciding what expectations to meet and which ones to let go of for now.
