Hey everybody! I recently joined the Periscope crowd, and it has been SO MUCH FUN! Download the app and let’s chat! You can find me at jessicagfisher!

Every morning I’ve been doing a Life as Mom broadcast. It’s been so fun to interact with readers LIVE. Today I shared four things you can do to ease back into homeschool after winter break. You can watch the replay here:

  1. Thank you so much for this scope. I have a really large family (9 dc, the youngest of which are 1yr old twins), and I, of course, didn’t get the planning time I needed in over the break. I have been dreading beginning school again. Your scope was good medicine for my soul- I love my people, that’s why we are homeschooling. I can start slow by building back in our morning time & doing math- that’s all for this week! Thanks for reminding me that I am in control (in as much as God allows 😉).
    Can’t wait to see today’s scope.

    Thank you! This helps. I had wanted to sit down and think about our new semester before we started school again but it didn’t happen. This motivated me to take a week to ease back into our school routine without setting ourselves up for failure. I like the idea of a minimal day. Good reminder. We use Teaching Textbooks too and love it!

    AHHH! The morning “High 5”! Why oh why did I let that little gem go? I used to use that method 3 kids ago and somehow forgot about that! That is what my youngest ones NEED- Thanks for that reminder! Also, I love the idea of morning meeting! I always have a schedule and daily plans running in my head but have never been intentional with sharing with the kids. If we do a morning meeting maybe now I will spend much less time rushing kids from task to task. Now they will know what needs to be done and by when and for what purpose! Thank you also for reminding us (or maybe just me), that its ok to EASE back in and make a happier transition for everyone. Thanks for sharing!!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
