Homeschool Day in the Life: Regina, Mom of five, including a newborn!
A homeschool day in the life looks different almost every day, right? Over on our Instagram page, we love to give you a peek into lots of homeschool days regardless of how they change day to day.
Today, we’re going to give you a peek into the homeschool day in the life of Regina, homeschool mom of five sweet little ones, including a newborn!
Regardless of our homeschool approach, how long we’ve been homeschooling, or how old our kids are, we can all learn and be inspired by one another. It’s not about looking good for social media, it’s about the connection going on inside our homeschool walls and sharing with others what works for us.

We might all homeschool a little differently, but we can always look for ideas from each other that inspire, encourage and equip us in our own homeschool days. So each week we create blog posts for you to access later of each of those “days in the life”. We hope you keep coming back for more inspiration. Keep going, mama! These days at home are so worth it!

We Are Doing a Wonderful Work
Hi there! I’m Regina from @smiles_of_grace . Happy to share some our life with you, because these are the days! ? I spend them quite literally covered in children, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Homeschooling, all at once, is the best and most exhausting of work. Whether you’re feeling like this is the best of days or more on the tiring end of things, take heart, you’re doing a wonderful work.
I want to share with you some of my fav homeschool memories today. I love this one. My oldest girl reading to one of my younger girls. ???One of our favorite things to do together is READ!
Words have the ability to bring us together to share story, life, and trial. To use words beautifully we must read books beautifully written. We pursue this each week. There’s a highlight on reading over @smiles_of_grace if you’d like some of my top picks and tricks to engage your kids in a true LOVE of reading.
Taking Time to Decorate
Homeschooling doesn’t mean you can’t have great holiday parties! I encourage you to plan it out an decorate to the max at least a couple of times a year. It doesn’t have to be grand just intentional for your kids’ sake. You can imagine how much they’ll love it. This is a shot of last year’s Valentine’s Day party with friends at our home.
You Can School Anywhere
Christmas past. You don’t have to stick to the school room or space alone. You can spread out and school anywhere. In the leaves strewn over the backyard, in the bright sunshine spilling over the front porch, or on the hearth aside a warm fire. Learning becomes more wondrous when the backdrop inspires.
Don’t Miss It
Childhood: wonderful, fleeting, fun, to be cherished. It is a time create, play, adventure, and to discover all the delights of learning something new. Don’t miss it for your to do list, to clean the house, or even to cook. Instead, let childhood be a part of all the everyday things: cook with your kids, dance party with them while you do chores together. Whatever you do, keep your eyes open wide, and you may find you’re the one learning most of all.
Thank you so much to Regina for sharing your family’s day with us!
