Finishing Strong to Begin Again Strong!


This kid is almost “done” for the summer! He has about ten pages of geography left and he took the book upstairs during quiet time so I’m thinking he’ll be done this week.

The others aren’t far behind him. Some subjects are done, others only have a tiny bit more to do. We’ve basically moved to our summer schedule of Morning Time, a few lessons, and household and yard projects in the morning and (hopefully) more “fun” stuff the rest of the day.

Next week I hope to give the house a good cleaning, put away most of the books and finish my evaluation of the past year.

In order to do that evaluation I’m spending some time with our assignment sheets from the past year, my bullet journals with their notes and ideas, my list of needed books ,and the websites of the vendors for the HEAV Convention!

With five children in varying levels from preschool to middle school (and one high school anatomy course) I want to be sure I’m not only covering the basics but setting my students up for high school and college.

Over the next weeks I’ll be posting a series (with helpful downloads) on how to evaluate and plan for a new homeschool year!


And as I usually do, I’m giving away a Family Pass to the 2018 HEAV Convention!

Simply comment here on what finishing strong means to you to enter the giveaway. It ends next Tuesday, May 15th at midnight!

    Finishing strong means we are exiting our homeschool year with as much excitement and fervor as we began with. This may not happen all days but we are trying.

      I think the excitement around here is mostly of the “Only three lessons of _____ left!” variety, but I’ll take it!

    To me finishing strong means that my children have learned much and grown according to God’s design, even though not necessarily what I had envisioned at the get-go ?

    • Kyndra Steinmann says:

      Finding the balance between our plans and dreams and actual life is a job in itself. Walking forward in faith is so necessary!

    Finishing strong is ending the school year realizing that, even though we may not have hit every aspect of “the plan”, they’ve grown and learned and matured, often in ways I did not expect or plan.
