Back to school time is like a fresh start, a clean slate to start over. We all learn from our experiences as homeschoolers, and back to school is the perfect time to make some changes. What worked well for you last year, and what would you like to change? What will you be fine-tuning with your homeschooling this year?

For me, I'm going to combine my kids' chore lists and lists of schoolwork each day. Although we primarily use T4L, we do supplement with handwriting practice and other little things here and there, and I've always made a daily list for each child with their assignments. I've decided it is much easier to combine this with each child's list of chores for the day. Simplify!

So how about you? What are you doing differently this year?
