I am the hostess, once again for this month’s High School Homeschool Blog Carnival. The theme for this month is “Day in the life” or “typical day” of a homeschooled high-schooler.
I find this a little ironic considering that I am graduating my high-schooler this month and his typical day looks a lot less like Shakespeare and statistics and a lot more like job applications and auto repair. Yes, “senioritis” is alive and well in the homeschool high school! Add to that a pretty intense spring fever (will it EVER come???) and you might as well throw in the towel as far as getting anything academic done!LOL!

I have a sneaking suspicion that this may be the case for a lot of high-schoolers right now as entries for this carnival have been few and far between!
Luckily for us, a brave few are still plugging along and have offered up lovely descriptions of how high school plays out in their homes with their young ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy!
First up, the ever-inspiring Willa at Take Up and Read shares how her high schoolers’ homeschool day breaks down and how they use their time.
Next, Mary at Winecup Christian Academy shares recap of her son’s week full of diverse studies. I want to know where she found a fabulous Russian course for her son as my Sam has been wanting to learn Russian for a while now.
And then there is Erin at Seven Little Australians , who is definitely NOT suffering from spring fever because it is autumn in Australia. Erin shares a ‘typical’ day in the life of her teens, and adds, ” But is it really a standard day? In one sense it is as it reflects the ebbs and flows of our life”
Finally, meet Nancy of Family on Bikes, who (after taking a world-record breaking three year bike ride with her husband and twin boys from Alaska to Argentina!!!), has collaborated with her boys to assemble a unique combination of school and activities to meet their educational needs and feed their passions. As Nancy says, “Consider all options!”
And that’s it! Short and sweet! Just enough to get your wheels turning and perhaps inspire a few ideas for next year.
If your high-schooler is resisting the siren song of spring and you have any relevant blog posts you’d like to share, please link in the comments!
