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 Sarah, artist, former preschool teacher, and homeschool mom to two beautiful girls.
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!
Sarah is an artist and homeschool mom of two girls. She is also a former preschool teacher. Five years ago she decided to do preschool at home with her daughters. When it came time for her oldest to go to kindergarten, she decided to try homeschooling. She’s been doing it ever since!

Good morning Learning Well Community! I’m Sarah from @withhisgrace and I’m so excited to share our day in the life today!
We’re not early risers over here. I love my sleep and I hate coffee ?. I typically wake up between 8-9 and get dressed and ready for the day while my girls are still sleeping. When they wake up we have breakfast.
After breakfast my girls get dressed, make their beds, brush their hair, and brush their teeth. Then we typically start our homeschool lessons for the day. I hope you enjoy following along today!
We have started our lessons for the day in our homeschool room! We have always used and love My Father’s World curriculum. My youngest is using Learning God’s Story for 1st grade and my oldest is using Exploring Countries and Cultures for 3rd grade.
I try to do some one on one work with my youngest while my oldest does independent work then switch. It takes a little bit of planning because each day is a little different in what types of things we do.
We’re taking a break from our lessons to read some of our read aloud. We’re currently reading “The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls: Race to the Ark,” by M.J. Thomas.
While I read my girls are creating with polymer clay. My youngest is making the Tower of Babel from her Bible lesson today. My oldest is making a castle because she’s studying Germany and castles this week and next.
We’re done with our lessons for the day. We don’t always do each subject everyday. Now my girls have chosen to do some painting while I read our second read aloud. We are also reading “When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit,” by Judith Kerr. My oldest daughter has been interested in WW2 ever since we read “Snow Treasure,” by Marie McSwigan last week for our study of Norway.
After we finish our read aloud my girls love to play in their playroom. They will typically play in here until it’s time for dinner.
After dinner my girls will take baths and get ready for bed. We always read the Bible every night. We are currently reading the whole Bible in a year using a chronological reading plan. Sometimes my girls will play or color while we read as well.
Our days are very simple and relaxed. We don’t always do arts and crafts everyday. But I find my girls respond to things so much easier when they have been able to be creative in some capacity.
I hope you enjoyed a peek into our day in the life! Our homeschool routine doesn’t always look the same everyday. We do different subjects on different days except for our core subjects like Bible, math, and language arts.
Thank you so much to Sarah for sharing your family’s day with us!
