By: Rebecca Miller The Sandwiched Homeschooler The Risky Grasshoppers I like Aesop’s Fables. Perhaps the one that I like the most is The Ant and the Grasshopper. In the story the ants work diligently while the grasshopper wastes time. When winter comes, the grasshopper realizes the error of his ways—and that he will be starving [...]
Motivating and Focusing Children New homeschooling parents have a tendency to ask in my Yahoo! groups a particular cluster of questions: “How do I get my kids to do the things that they don’t want to do?” And “How do I keep my kids focused?” Trust me when I say I wish I had the [...]
When Behaviors Forfeit Help: Part 3 Both of my kids made remarkable progress during their first year of homeschooling. With my oldest son, we went over all of the material from the previous year. Essentially, he repeated the grade. In hindsight I have learned alternative options that we could have utilized. But while being a [...]
When Behaviors Forfeit Help: Part 2 My oldest son had spent time in private school also. He was more than thrilled to leave the environment, with the exception of the loss of his friends. Socially, he was a natural born butterfly. He made friends easily—some of these friends he was able to keep in contact [...]
When Behaviors Forfeit Help: Part I It seems like yesterday that we started our homeschooling journey, although it is actually close to 11 years ago. They were such tiny guys, my boys, trying to imitate their father with their walk and their talk—as most little boys tend to do. They were excited about the new [...]

Welcome to The Sandwiched Homeschooler!
Hello! Welcome to my blog, The Sandwiched Homeschooler. I use this blog to write about our homeschooling journey, which is almost done. My kids are now in high school and probably down to their last year, that is unless my youngest son wants to continue for another year.
I hope that you will find my blog to be a different than other blogs: (1) I include the good, the bad and ugly of our homeschooling journey. It's not always peaches and cream; (2) I try to write words of encouragement for new homeschoolers and for homeschoolers that might be having a bad day. I remember the feelings of being a newbie homeschooling parent; and (3) I'm not "Super Homeschooler." I'm just a homeschool mom that has probably "been there, done that" as far as homeschooling goes and I will share with you what I have experienced.
We are eclectic in our approach, but didn't start out that way. We've made several changes throughout our homeschooling journey. During high school, besides our learning at home, my kids utilized programs and clubs offered at our local high school: sports, FLVS (Florida Virtual School), JRTOC, Teen Court, Student Government, Interact, SADD, Student Advisory Council, Junior Achievement, Relay for Life, Adopt-a-Road, and Holiday Food Drives. They have also completed some dual enrollment courses at our local community college.
Outside of school, they have both volunteered at The Angelus Haunted House as actors for several years. They are also Eagle Scouts (and in good standing with Order of the Arrow--although I'd like to see them participate more); and have been Den Chiefs for Cub Scouts until the Pack closed recently. This school year they both started working jobs.
I have found the teen years to be the hardest--not so much academically, but in their "sprouting of wings". My biggest regret is not graduating my oldest son before he turned 18. I slowed down his progress so he could continue with some dual enrollment and that was a huge mistake. My best advice to homeschoolers is to graduate your kids before they turn 18.
I guess that I would just like to share with you through my blog that it's okay to change things up, it's okay to have a bad day, and that in the end your kids will still turn out okay.

The first Floss spelling ruleThe first Floss spelling rule is a rule of thumb used to help students understand when to double the letters f, l and s in words. According to this simple Floss spelling rule, these letters double at the end of a word when they follow a short vowel sound. Thus, words like huff, puff, stuff are ‘f’ floss words. Hills and pills are ‘l’ floss words, while grass and miss are ‘s’ floss words.
