Welcome to Finishing Strong. This link up is for all families who are homeschooling middle & high school kids.
I love seeing what our community of bloggers share here each week. The posts that are linked up each week and your comments remind me that I’m not alone. So make sure you share your amazing thoughts about homeschooling older kids with us below.

If haven’t been able to add art into your weekly homeschooling schedule yet, now’s the time. It’s important to give your kids some space each week for them to use their creativity. I know it’s easier to focus on subjects like math and language arts, but homeschoolers need to find the time for art too.
Personally, I think fall is the perfect time for seasonal art because of the rich colors and fun subjects.
For families who don’t have much time for art or who would like to create some practical projects, you’ll love these Easy Fall Chalk Art ideas.
This Fall Mixed Media Art Workshop is perfect for kids who don’t want to stick with one art medium or are looking for a wide variety of projects to choose from.

From the time that my kids were in elementary school, I pushed them to speak in front of people whenever possible. It wasn’t always comfortable for them, so like Eva, I allowed them to build a presentation using common technology tools. They not only got the public speaking experience, but also some great technology skills. Eva shares how her kids take it a step further by creating complete video presentations.
