Homeschool Graduation Checklist










We have our first homeschool graduate coming this spring. I am so excited for him. One thing I get asked all the time is about graduation. Homeschooling high school is mystifying for many. So I created a sort of checklist of ideas for those last minute things you might want to do for your graduate. Keep in mind this is an extensive list and we will not do all of them so choose what works best for your family!

 Homeschool Graduation Checklist


 This post contains affiliate links



  • Homeschool Diploma - In the state of NJ the parents issue the diploma. We have ours already to go. 
  • Cap and Gown  - We will be ordering a black set.
  • Senior Pictures - I plan on taking the bulk of these myself but we may go ahead and do a traditional headshot at our local target. I have seen the trend to go to a nice location with several outfit changes and do a whole session - that is something I can do myself with my camera so I plan to do it that way. If I didn't have a camera I would hire a professional. 
  • Announcements/Invitations - we will be doing some sort of mail out and it will feature a picture from our session. 
  • Graduation Party - This can be as big or as little as you like. We are hoping to have a nice sized party with a theme (per the graduates request!)
  • Ceremony - Our son asked to opt out of a ceremony. Two options for us were to do one with our local homeschool group that offers it or to have a ceremony at home (like we did with kindergarten.  
  • Class Ring -  We will probably make this our gift to our graduate. You can order them on Walmart. I know it was a huge deal when I was a senior to get mine and I still have it. 
  • Senior Trip - We are hoping to take a mini-trip either with just the graduate or the whole family. Haven't determined what exactly yet but we want something special for him.



Everything above is more of the celebration aspect but maybe your wondering about HOW to graduate your child. 

  • Transcript - we will be using HSLDA to do a completed transcript. (This is the final record of what is finished.)
  • College Applications - we did not have to do those for our student as he is taking a year off to work then plans to attend some sort of trade program. We would have submitted those in the fall of senior year.
  • End of Year Testing - We have a few final exams to finish
  • SAT/ACT - Last chance to improve those scores is Spring of senior year
  • Senior Thesis/ Large Final Projects  - These should be something that is being finished up about springtime for the graduate.  
  • Goals Next Steps - The graduate should have some sort of plan for the future. It took some time to figure out where our son was headed but we laid out our family guidelines and expectationsfor the next steps, let him think and pray on those then had a serious talk and came up with a plan. This type of talk happened many times over the four years of school but now in spring with graduation almost here we have a finalized plan. 
  • Finish Date - We gave our son a clear date to have all his work completed. It was a lot to accomplish but he really matured and stepped up this year and is on track to finish strong.

Molang Giveaway! Plus FREE Printables!






Molang is back for another season in the DVD Molang Season Two. There are 52 episodes and over 3 hours of watching! This show is adorable. Molang is a round, fluffy rabbit and his friend Piu Piu is a sweet yellow chick. What is unique is they don't really talk on this show (think Minions style) but it is very easy to follow along with what is going on. My 2 year old and I giggled along the episodes we watched.

Defeating Negative Thoughts with Captain Snout!






 Teaching kids to hear a positive inner voice is so important. Having four children over the years I've heard their negative concerns and had to address them. In Captain Snout And The Super Power Questions: Don't Let The Ants Steal Your Happiness, author Daniel G. Amen, M.D. addresses some of the top negative thoughts that threaten to steal a child's joy. Guess what - they often sneak into parents thoughts too!!

Curriculum Review: Traditional Spelling I from Memoria Press



I love Memoria Press. I feel like it doesn't get enough credit in the homeschooling world against other more known curriculum companies. We have enjoyed our Kindergarten year and now feel the same about first grade. I love watching my 7 year old giggle while reading his literature and march around as he masters his recitation. It has been a good year!

When we received the Adventure Bible Book of Daring Deeds and Epic Creations: 60 Ultimate try-something-new, explore-the-world activities, I knew my son would be super excited.

Book Review: High Cotton by Debby Mayne




 I have really been into contemporary Christian novels lately. I went through a historical fiction phase but now it is all about contemporary for me. This is my first book by Debby Mayne and I'm sure it won't be my last. High Cotton is the first book in the Bucklin Family Reunion series.  We meet several members of the Bucklin Family as they all are anticipating another family reunion. Set in a southern landscape the values of Sweet Tea and bringing your best dish prevail as story points - I only wish I had a few recipes from because the food read wonderfully and I have to admit I would have loved to try Missy's chili!

First Steps of Homeschooling










 Homeschooling is growing. Parents are unhappy with the current school systems. Heavy workloads, crazy testing and safety are among top concerns. I can't say that I blame parents for questioning these things. We were once private school parents and we were happy way back then until our financial situation changed and we needed an alternative. I then started researching homeschooling. Our first year was wonderful and a bit rocky but I wouldn't change it one bit. We are on our 6th year of homeschooling and I've learned a lot.

Book Review: His Risk by Shelley Shepard Gray







 Shelley Shepard Gray is one of my favorite Christian Authors. Her series The Amish of Hart County has been a such a delight to read. It has a wonderful contemporary feel while keeping us in the Amish community. Her latest book in the series - His Risk - is another wonderful addition. This time we see a focus on Calvin Fisher who we met in his brother's story - His Guilt.  I love when we get a sibling story because we get to see where previously beloved characters' lives have gone. This book was a wonderful addition and had that edge of suspense that we've come to love from Gray.  Calvin had a very rough upbringing and left the Amish community at a young age. His life is not your typical 'good boy' so it is interesting to see how he reconciles his past with the present all while keeping his dangerous double life from coming unhinged.

NCircle Entertainment Easter DVD Giveaway!









 Easter is just around the corner. One thing I love to put in my children's baskets is new movies. It is a great addition to the candy - especially since we do limited amounts of candy. Just a few of their favorites and usually a small toy, a movie and a t-shirt. We try not to go to big for Easter but we still want it to be fun. This year I will be including Guess How Much I Love You An Enchanting Easter in my youngest son's basket and his older brother will receive Floogals Project Egg Hunt.

Curriculum Review: Acellus Online Curriculum





One of the first questions I get asked about is what do I use for curriculum. I have seen over the years that many parents are looking for online curriculum and self-grading. There are a few companies out there and a new one has been getting a lot of buzz - Acellus. I was very curious about this company because it was being asked about constantly on the homeschool facebook groups. So I decided to give it a try with my senior.

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET: WRECK-IT RALPH 2 Trailer!!!








My kids are super excited about the sequel to Wreck-It Ralph! We all loved the first one and the trailer looks hysterical!!


RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET: WRECK-IT RALPH 2 leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a webite entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.” Directed by Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph”) and Phil Johnston (co-writer “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Cedar Rapids,” co-writer “Zootopia,”), and produced by Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt”), “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-Ralph 2” hits theaters on Nov. 21, 2018.

Real-Life Romance by Rhonda Stoppe Party and Prize Pack Giveaway





I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from Real-Life Romance by Rhonda Stoppe. I guess I expected all sappy stories I didn't think it would give the grit and truth of marriage. The hard work side of things. This book totally surprised me. Not only are the stories truthful they are relatable. The stories shared are heartwarming and transparent. It is not all kids who met in high school and knew they would get married right then and there, and definitely not all roses. Some of the romances took time to develop. Each of these couples started out with strong faith or found it along the way.

I really enjoyed reading this book and getting a glimpse into each romance. While this book shares short stories about each couple it also has a devotional aspect taken from each stories theme. I liked that duplicity of the book. I think this book could really inspire people who are looking for a partner but losing hope. I've talked to many young friends who feel like they might never find love and I always say - in God's Time - but it hard to hear that from an old married lady. This book will inspire hope and they can see real stories from all ages and all situations. I plan on recommending it - often.

My Real-Life Romance Story

I had always dreamed of being married and being a Mom. At 20, I was a little lost in life, working and going to college I was looking to firm up my walk with God. My Mom had passed when I was 17 and my new step-mom went to a very conservative church. I had attended a few times but really didn't see any college and career aged people to identify with (little did I know they were all involved with serving in the various ministries and not in the morning services.)

I don't know why and can only credit The Lord but I decided to give that church another shot, a last final shot. I started attending and getting acquainted with some people. That week was revival services and so the week was full of services. I met my husband that week but I had no idea it would be him.  I actually asked him out one of the nights and he turned me down. I had asked him to go trick or treating (which was taboo as no one really celebrated in our denomination - which I didn't know.) The next night he realized I was serious about going out and asked me if I would like to go. He likes to say when he realized I had asked him out he thought he had missed his opportunity.

We did end up going trick or treating that week - our first date! We dated almost 3 years to the day, which included going to church and serving God together. We of course got married and had our family. I'm amazed still at how it all worked out. I would say I was looking for love at the time but I didn't really think I would find "the one". It was the type of romance that built over time with our friendship being the most important part. He is still my best friend and the person I want to spend all my time with. <3 br="">





I'd love to hear your Real-Life Romance - Please share in the comments!

Our Favorite Books for St. Patrick's Day #readaloud



 We are not Irish in our home. However on St. Patrick's Day - EVERYONE - is Irish. I actually never celebrated this holiday until about 10 years ago. My very Italian  Aunt had married an Irish man and every year he would make a nice meal of corned beef and cabbage for her. When he passed the day was sad because of the sweet memories. So we made a tradition of having her over to celebrate. I made her corned beef and cabbage (even though we really don't like corned beef.) She would bring the Irish Soda Bread and I would have Irish Potatoes.



This year we will have a little party. I had gotten some hats and stuff last year on clearance at target dollar spot. The kids all have shirts (actually from last year too!) I plan to make cabbage but probably ham steaks because I like those better with it. Jace and I are going to do some crafts and make Irish Soda bread from an easy kit I got at Aldi. Of course there will be Irish potatoes and lots of fun reading!!

Book Review & Giveaway: Ellie, Engineer




 The last two weeks I've been watching the Olympics. During that time I was truly amazed at how strong our women athletes are. Just in snowboarding, all the flips and the power. They worked hard, trained harder and it was amazing to watch. I love that in 2018, little girls are growing up knowing they can accomplish anything they put their minds to.

Hoot and Peep A Song for Snow

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That Season 2 Volume 1 DVD Review & Giveaway!





 In our homeschool we read a lot of books one series that has been part of our science education is the The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! We've enjoyed many of the books but our home library and public library does not have the entire collection. We were sent Season 2 Volume 1 DVD to review and it has been the perfect addition. It contains 20 episodes and is helping us supplement. Another thing I love is it gives us a different kind of media to add to our day. It is nice to switch from books to video. The videos are fun and engaging while having my son learn a ton or "A LOT" about many subjects.

Book Review: Liza's Second Chance

Liza's Second Chance FB Banner copy








 

 

 One of the things I love about Amish fiction is the reading about the community and how they always come together for each other. Liza's Second Chance shows a strong community that has a great love for one another. When new members of the community come in they are welcomed with open arms. Liza the main character of this novel is strong and independent which is quite different than most Amish women. She is a business owner, who has been hurt in the past. Through the book we see her grow as she helps another young teen grow up. Trials come her way but they only make her stronger. I loved that while this book was predictable it still had a strong story that kept me drawn into the last page. The characters were likable and I found myself rooting for them. I very much enjoyed being part of Liza's world. Jebber did a wonderful job at writing a story that was both believable and entertaining.

Lullapop Lullabies - Music Review







I love hearing renditions of my favorite songs. Music is such a big part of our life at home here in the Rup House. We have an amazing collection of kid songs and Lullapop Lullabies fits right in. The softness of each song is surprising. I found myself humming along with the ones I knew and enjoying the few I didn't. Of course Hello (Adele's song) is one of my stand out favorites. I could listen to this lullaby version over and over!

I'm happy with the progress we have made. My oldest is really buckling down and showing maturity along with excitement to complete his school years.

2018 One Word Theme



Each year I try to pray about a theme for the year. Usually it is just one word but in this case it will be a general word applied in a few forms. 2017 was a tough year for me. I was hurt by people I thought I was closer to. Finances were tight (but God is providing all our needs.) So I was thinking and praying for a theme and the word SAVING kept coming to mind.

Stocking Stuffer: Queen Helene Skin & Body Care







 Queen Helene products have been around since 1930. They have a huge line of skin and body care. One of the most notable products is their Mint Julep Mask which is a refreshing facial mask. Their products include many natural ingredients like shea butter and bentonite clay - because they believe that nature's finest ingredients are safer and more effective

I was recently sent two products from Queen Helene's Volcanic Ash line - The Voclanic Ash Masque and The Volcanic Ash Scrub. These are perfect for that deep clean and smell wonderful.

Keep Clean with Festive Soaps from Dial!






 I love adding holiday touches throughout the house during the Christmas season. We usually use just basic soaps but at Christmas time we amp it up with festive touches. This year we are featuring Dial Soap's Holiday editions. These are wonderful soaps that add a bit to the decor. The scents are pleasant and not at all overwhelming. Two of my kid's love scented hand soap. They both have told me how much they enjoyed these in our bathroom - and you know if they like the soap they will actually use it!!

Look for these fun soaps at your local retailer this holiday season!
