Simple Holidays and Homeschool Memories

The first holiday season of our homeschooling years was such a game changer at our house. In previous years, we had stayed busy, rushing from school plays and events to church activities, and the holidays went by in a blur. As a new homeschooling mom, I was determined that we were going to learn about the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, the history and meaning of each one, as well as spend time together as a family, building traditions, finding ways to help others, and making memories.

 You can do the same thing with your family! Spend time investigating all the wonders of autumn and then get ready for our second annual Thanksgiving and Christmas Facebook co-ops. Learn more about our co-ops here, and then make plans to join us! Connect with other families around the world as we explore these traditional holidays and consider just what they mean in our lives. You'll be inspired by the insights and practical ideas of other homeschoolers just like you!

Whatever the ages of your crew, be sure to spend time making memories that they can pass on to their children.
