Finishing Strong – Homeschooling Middle & High School #89

Finishing Strong is a link up that’s all about families homeschooling older kids. Every week we come together to share our experiences navigating the middle & high school years. We host it along with our friends – Blog She Wrote, EvaVarga, and Starts at Eight.

Are you almost finished the school year or does your family school year round? Hopefully, you’re not experiencing too much spring fever in your house as you try to keep the learning going.

I love homeschooling! Learning is a way of life for our family. Most days you will find us exploring our Central Florida community, having fun while learning. I am constantly looking for new and interactive ways to engage my older children.
