Tamara Watson is a wife and a homeschooling mother of three. Her interests include blogging at Unhurried Home, starting-but-never-finishing new knitting projects, and lying on the couch in a daze, wondering how the house could be so messy when all she does is clean 47 hours a day. It’s good to have hobbies, right?
Do you use a homeschool curriculum that’s neatly scheduled out for you over four or five days? It’s awesome, isn’t it? I love opening up my lesson book and seeing exactly what I need to accomplish over the day. Bible, Math, Language Arts, Science, History, Art, Composer Study, Geography — even activities for my preschooler! — […]

A word of warning: making booklets is crazy addictive. I started off by making just a few booklets for my homemade traveller’s notebook: a month-long homeschool planner, a booklet of the knitting patterns that I’m currently using, and a booklet that’s just blank paper for my kids to scribble through. It’s my decoy booklet, designed […]
A quick FYI: all the prices in this post are in Canadian dollars, and none of them include tax. Also? I’m an overtired homeschooling mom and I’m all too capable of making mistakes; please double check all the information for yourself before purchasing your own printer. So this is a post about my printer, of […]
I love Facebook. And I spend far, far too much time on Facebook. I like screens in general. I read a lot of ebooks. I think Twitter is fun. I love posting on my blog. Last year, when my youngest wanted to wake me up in the morning, he would stick my iPhone in my hand as […]
This post contains affiliate links. The links in the text go to Amazon.com, but I’ve also included the Amazon.ca links at the bottom of the post for my fellow Canadians. I’m possibly the world’s worst prayer. If I pray alone in my room, I inevitably fall asleep or end up mentally planning for the next […]
Homeschooling mom of three. I'd knit if I could find my yarn.
