We’ve Reached the Homeschool Kindergarten Halfway Mark

*Disclosure- I received the Bookshark Curriculum in exchange for sharing our journey with you. All opinions are my own.*

When we first started this homeschool journey, I’m not going to lie. I had my doubts. I was scared. I had no idea what to expect.

Was I going to screw up my kid? Was he going to drive me too crazy for me to teach him? Would I fail him?

I can 100 percent tell you that this journey has not gone at all like I expected it to. It has gone SO MUCH BETTER!

Homeschool has been a joy!

Most days we look forward to it. We get along better. Most days we are learning alongside one another.

Bookshark has been such an amazing blessing for our family. The way the lessons are planned out, it takes so much stress off of me. It’s straightforward, easy to understand, and totally organized. I feel like they’re holding my hand every step of the way.

The fact that it’s Literature Based, makes my bibliophile heart happy. We spend a lot of time cuddled up reading together, and in doing so I’m raising a reader. His curriculum is literally instilling a love of reading in him, and that is worth a million bucks in my book!

With Bookshark’s Language Arts Curriculum, I get to share some of my childhood book favorites with my child. Before we started this school year, I had no idea how much he LOVED science. Now every week he looks forward to the Science Experiments from the Science Curriculum, and we’ve even been doing ALL of the ‘optional’ ones as well.

I thought this year would drag on at a snail’s pace- but it is flying by. I couldn’t ask for better results. My friends are even asking a lot of questions and getting more curious about this whole ‘homeschool thing.’

So today, we’re baking brownies and having a celebration- we’re going to do school in our pajamas and go to the library. We’re going to spend extra time doing what we love (and maybe skipping math), because we are celebrating.

Bring it on, second half of Kindergarten- we’re coming for ya!


Have you considered homeschool? What are you curious about? What are your reservations? I would love to share what we’ve learned with you!

    You are so incredible for doing this. I keep wanting to try this with my boys – I’m going to have to go back to the beginning to see how you started 🙂
