Is it possible to be a dedicated homeschooling mom while still making time for myself as an individual (a girlie girl who likes cute shoes)? I like to think so. Follow along, and I'll let you know for sure.

Trust me . . . it's not ALL about the shoes.

New Fall Homeschool Classes at SPARK! Family Enrichment Center

Spark! Family Enrichment Center kicked off their new fall homeschool schedule this week with an amazing assortment of classes every day of the week. In addition to language (French, Spanish and Mandarin), science, math, language, music and writing classes, they have some really unique offerings such as Picturing America, Reading Theater, Architectural Explorations and American Girl Book Club. 

If you're looking for your child to study for a day or two outside the house or are interested in specific topics you don't feel comfortable teaching, be sure to check out Spark! Both of mine have taken classes there, and in addition to it being a fun learning environment, the staff is amazing and I felt very comfortable leaving them there. They also have a parent's lounge with Wi-Fi if you want to stick around while the kids are in class.

In addition to their homeschool classes, Spark! offers support services to homeschooling families, including evaluations and standardized testing. They're also hosting an upcoming homeschooling seminar series with Jan Zeiger that starts tomorrow!
