Welcome to The Unexpected Homeschooler!
Whether you have been homeschooling for a few months or a few years, you know what a challenge it is to juggle everything!
- You feel like you’re being pulled in different directions while trying to homeschool and keep up with the house, and even though you’ve tried different schedules, nothing seems to stick.
- You just can’t seem to get a handle on everything that needs to be done. You’re working harder than ever, but you never have enough time, especially for the fun stuff.
- Homeschooling multiple children at the same time seems next to impossible most days.
- You wonder if homeschooling is really worth it.
I believe your home doesn’t have to be chaotic just because you homeschool.

Fifteen years ago when I started homeschooling, I had no idea how difficult it would be to teach my children and manage a household at the same time. I was so overwhelmed with everything that had to be done. I struggled with getting the kids to do their school work, keeping up with the house, meals, and let’s not mention the piles of laundry. It became quite obvious if I didn’t make some changes, everything would fall apart.
Trying to regain my sanity, I began using some tricks from when I was a school teacher, as well as learning how other homeschoolers got through their day. Over the years, with the information I gathered, a system evolved that allowed us to be more efficient, organized, and productive. While every day isn’t perfect, the chaos that was once part of our everyday lives is gone. Now the kids work independently, the house is presentable, and I actually enjoy homeschooling. The same thing can happen for you!
Are you ready to organize your homeschool, teach your kids to work independently, and have a little time to get something done around the house?
