5 Free Advent Studies and Resources

Advent begins Sunday, November 27th! Until one day, years ago, when fellow homeschoolers were chatting online about Advent, we hadn’t ever celebrated it. We tried a free Advent study that year as a family and have celebrated ever since. I love how it gets us into the spirit of Christmas and its true meaning as we lead up to the big night! When our kids were little, we lit the candles then snuggled up on the couch and read scriptures and great Christmas themed literature such as A Christmas Carol together. Sometimes we sang Christmas carols as well. Here are 5 free advent studies and resources to help celebrate Advent in your home.

2022 Canadian Homeschool Conference Feb 7 to 12

Winter is here, complete with bitter cold, all these storms lately (and another one on the way), and the dreaded winter doldrums. This is the time of year when homeschoolers often start to feel sluggish and weary (don’t we all?)- especially these past couple years. It’s easy to get discouraged and question all the decisions you’ve made. 

This is one reason that homeschool community is vital to your survival and success. It’s also one of the big reasons the annual Canadian Homeschool Conference is held in February every year. Because we all can use a hand up and over this slump.

The 6th annual Canadian Online Homeschool Conference kicks off on Monday, February 7th, 2022 and runs through the 12th. You can register right here. It is free to attend live.

It is a 6-day online event featuring knowledgeable speakers, a vendor hall, opportunities to interact with other attendees, fun, and giveaways! No need to leave the comfort of your own home (or pay for gas or travel).

Write a Novel This Month! For ALL Ages

It’s November 1st already! Where did the year go? The good news is, with November comes National Novel Writing Month – it’s NaNoWriMo time again! Write a novel this month.

My husband and I will each be working on a book this month. Unlike my hubby, I’m a nonfiction writer, so I’ll be working on my Geek Schooling book. In the past, any number of family members would be writing a novel at this time, including our two children. (I should remind my daughter that it’s Nanowrimo time – she’s away at college but still may want to participate.)
