Encouraging Hearts and Home

Alec started back to hybrid schooling this week and we're slowly trying to return to a normal schedule.  After more than a month of virtual learning it's odd to have to get up and out the door so early!  We have a few birthdays in our family coming up in the next week or so and I'm trying to get everything done for those as well as working on organizing the house. It's also the perfect time of year for me to take stock of how homeschooling is going with both Ian and Evan and work on tweaking the rest of our school year.  We flew through so much of the work we had planned!  How are things going for you?

And Now, It's Time for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!  


Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!

  3. Good luck getting back into the routine- I am loving it even though we are not 100% back just yet- the kids are definitely happy being in school! :)

    1. Thank you! It's so hard when it's always changing.

  4. Hi Joanne, thanks so much for hosting. I am glad to hop over and share some things! And while you have one child going back to hybrid learning, my kids just switched from hybrid to full remote at least until the end of the month. These transitions are rough on all of us! And when you have more than one kid, keeping track of it all just gets more tedious with each additional child, doesn't it?! But together we will all get through these trying times!


    1. I find it so much more stressful keeping track of all his hybrid stuff than I ever did with homeschooling!

  5. So much adjustment these days. Glad your guys have you to steer them through it

    1. They do remarkably well with these changes.
