The 2018 Not Back-to-School Blog Party was a fun, encouraging, month-long event with over 25 bloggers inspiring homeschool moms to live an educating life with their family.

You can find all the bloggers and posts below. I hope you will find homeschool encouragement in these posts to carry you throughout the year.

What is most important and valuable about the home as a base for children’s growth into the world is not that it is a better school than the schools, but that it isn’t a school at all.

Creating a Life of Learning

Within these posts, I hope you found inspiration and encouragement to create an educating life with your children. Learning isn’t found only in textbooks and tests, nor book reports and spelling tests.

It can be found everywhere, at any time. Your children will learn from field trips, movies, games, and play. It just takes a change in our mindset as to what constitutes education.

The deschooling process can be difficult and long-winded, but in the end, your eyes will be opened to the learning possibilities all around you.

I’d love for you to join my Facebook group, Homeschool Mindset | Creating a Life of Learning for more discussion and inspiration about incorporating a homeschool mindset.
