August is upon us and there is one more month left of summer. This is the last month of summer break for many families. Some families wait until September to start school, while others may follow their local school schedule and start in just a couple of weeks.

Regardless of when you begin school, August is a very big month of preparations and a great time to get organized. Summer goes by so fast and before you know it, it will be time to start school. Will you be ready?

Planning for the rest of the summer:

They also will help you plan and keep track of everything that you need to get done before school begins. Make sure to take time to pick one thing to challenge yourself on this new school year.

Free July Ultimate Checklists Planner

July is such a busy and fun month full of Patriotic events, celebrations and just enjoying the hot summer months with friends and family. Let’s look at all the July fun activities and how to keep track of everything for your family.

What is there to do in July with your family?

The most patriotic American holiday is on July 4th ~ Independence Day. Many families will choose to have 4th of July picnics, take part in parades, and attend firework shows or concerts. You can have some great conversations with your family regarding our country and its history. You can discuss the constitution, what it means to be patriotic and gather together to pray for our country.

July is also one of the hottest months in the year for many areas. Even though it is hot, it seems to be a favorite month for picnics, backyard barbecues and get togethers. While you are spending a lot of time outdoors in the sun make sure that you keep cool.

Fun ideas for staying cool in July:

  • Visit a natural body of water in your area, like a lake, a beach, a spring, or a river. If you don’t have one near you consider making a long day trip or a short mini vacation.
  • Set up a sprinkler and let the kids run around and play in it.
  • Have a water party with water balloons, baby pools full of soapy bubbles, tarps with dish soap for a cheap slip and slide.
  • Make homemade popsicles or homemade ice cream. Homemade ice cream is a fun thing to do with your kids that will create some wonderful memories. (Hint: there is a free homemade ice cream recipe in this month’s Ultimate Checklist!)

How to keep track of all the summer fun events:

Our Ultimate Checklists is like a big family planner. It has so many amazing checklists, papers, worksheets, and brainstorming sheets to help you keep track of everything you need during the busy summer.

What is included in the July Ultimate Checklist?

This month’s checklist has everything you need to keep track of your summer fun. There are even planning sheets to get you to start thinking about the new school year. Even though we are in the middle of summer, a new homeschool year will creep up on us before we know it!

Homeschool Teens and Summer Vacation

Unless you homeschool year-round, your teens probably look forward to summer vacation! And so do we as homeschool parents. But teens who plan to attend college and win scholarships, need to keep in mind that they will often be asked on applications how they spent their summers during high school.

homeschool teens and summer vacation

What summer vacation should NOT become

Teens do NOT have to settle for a miserable summer. They need time off to have fun and relax. They do not need to cram their summer full of activities and classes they think will impression admissions counselors. Summer should not be a time to add to all the stress teens may already be feeling about getting into college.

How teens can use summer productively and still have fun

If teens spend time intentionally planning their summer, they can have an enjoyable 3 months and still have plenty to write about on college and scholarship applications. Students should consider what they enjoy doing and then come up with ideas on how to keep what they enjoy about the activity, but add another layer that will …

Some examples would be for someone who enjoys reading, to start a book club. Enjoy writing? Write a novel. A teen who loves playing computer games could learn how to create them. I know a number of teens who love a particular sport who are helping coach teams or acting as referees. This could be a paid or volunteer position.

Of course, getting a job shows that a student is prepared to work, and is capable of holding down a job. If they do it well, their boss could write them recommendation letters in the future. And jobs provide money plus teach so many skills so working during the summer is something to consider.

Another idea is for teens to take their passions and turn them into a business. This could be as simple as starting a blog, podcast, or Youtube channel about it and making money from affiliate sales and advertising, to creating a product or service around what they are interested in. One teen I know who loved ballet, decorated old ballet pointe shoes and sold them on Etsy. One of my sons built websites for other people. There are so many possibilities. Even if the business idea fails, the teen will have learned valuable lessons.

All high schoolers, homeschoolers too, are usually so busy during the school semester there isn’t time to try out new hobbies. Summer is the perfect time for that! Learn to play a musical instrument, take up pottery, macrame, calligraphy, whittling – it doesn’t matter what! Trying something new shows that you are open to learning and new experiences.

Even going away on vacation can be a valuable activity as well as enjoyable – get your teen to help plan the vacation. Perhaps they can research where to stay and the cheapest place to pick up gas on the way there. Give them a budget and let them plan activities at your destination. This has the added benefit of taking some of the preparation from the parents! My parents always involved us kids, and my husband and I have done the same with our children. It’s a great way to teach real-life skills

Documenting the vacation through a blog, photos, or video is another idea. Perhaps sign your child up for a Photography, Photoshop, or Video-editing class and let them practice their skills during and after your vacation.

A fun way for teens to start thinking about what college they might want to attend, how they will pay for it, and if they have the skills necessary to succeed at college, is to participate in FundFunda Academy’s annual summer High School Challenge for homeschoolers. Students have the whole of June and July to complete a number of challenges related to college prep that will earn them Target and Amazon gift cards – and the overall winner gets $150!

There are so many ways teens can have a fantastic summer AND have plenty of interesting activities to mention on applications. For more ideas take a look at my post on 101 Things for Teens to do in Summer.

June Ultimate Checklists and Planning Resources

June is a time where school has mostly ended, or is winding down to be a lighter more relaxed load. Now it begins the time for summer planning. Whether you school year round or take a full summer off for school, there is still a lot of summer fun to be had.june ultimate lists text with image of a beach.

Summer time is a great break with the ability to spend extra quality time with your family or friends. Not only are there summer vacations or staycations there are lots of activities and events to attend. The summer season also includes lots of cook outs, picnics and time spent around the water.

Especially if you live somewhere that is hot, like we do here in Florida, you will be spending a lot of time around the water this summer. If we are outside for long periods of time it must include water since it is always so hot in the middle of the day.

As you are planning for your summer events don’t forget to plan and schedule swim lessons, or refresher swim lessons. My kids have great memories of their summer swim lessons. Once they get over the fear of the water, they enjoy the tradition of summer swim lessons. We reward them with ice cream and popsicles at the end of the week too which is another great memory and summer tradition.

June events to plan for:

Other events that you will want to make sure you plan for this summer is Father’s Day and any June birthdays. You  might as well get started on planning for the 4th of July as well. Since June is usually a lighter month of school (or maybe you take school off completely), there may be some summer projects you want to accomplish while you have the time.

Summer break is a great time to work on any home improvement projects or to reorganize book shelves or the school room. We like to go through bedrooms over the summer and make piles of donations to take to local thrift stores. I try to get my children to purge clothes, toys and books. We even take them to resell shops to earn some extra money for summer treats and trips.

This month’s Ultimate Checklists subscriber freebie has all of the planning sheets that you need for the month of June.

What is included in the June Ultimate Checklist?

This month’s checklist has planning help for Father’s Day with gift ideas, June birthdays, and 4th of July planning sheets. There are even healthy eating and weight loss goals for summer. Of course, there are still the blank ones for those that like to plan everything out themselves and customize the lists for their families.

Bible History – Why It Matters

Bible History ~ by Crystal Niehoff

When it comes to Bible history, some people might ask, “Why does it matter?” After all, the Bible is a religious book, not a history book, right?

Bible history why it matters is important to understanding life skills.

 If you take a closer look at the Bible, you will see that it is actually one of the most accurate historical documents of all time! In this blog post, we will discuss some of the reasons why studying Bible history is so important. We will also explore how the study of biblical history can help us to better understand God and His Word. 

Why is studying Bible history important?

One of the most important reasons to study Bible history is that it helps us to better understand the character and heart of God. When we read about the events that took place in biblical times, we can begin to see how sovereign and powerful God really is! We also see how He has always been faithful to His people, even when they have turned away from Him. This knowledge can give us hope and comfort when we face difficult times in our own lives.

Another reason why studying Bible history is so important is because it helps us to better understand the Bible itself. The Bible is not just a collection of religious stories – it is actually a historical document that was written over a period of 1500 years by more than 40 different authors! As we study the history behind the Bible, we can begin to see how all of its different parts fit together to tell one unified story. Reading through the pages of the Bible, one thing becomes clear- the Lord’s ultimate plan of restoration and redemption for those who call upon Him. This understanding can help us to apply the Bible’s teachings to our own lives in a much deeper way.

As Timothy tells us to do in 2 Timothy 3:14-17, “. . . continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of . . . and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

So don’t neglect the study of Bible history! It is essential for anyone who wants to understand the Bible more fully and grow closer to the Lord. If you have never studied biblical history before, now is the perfect time to start. There are many great resources available that can help you get started on your journey. 

History for Christian Teens Podcast

One great resource is the History for Christian Teens podcast and our series on the major figures and events of the Old Testament. This weekly podcast highlights a person, place, or event from Old Testament history. Then discusses what it all means in light of the Scripture, our measuring stick for all truth and knowledge, followed by how we, as Christians, can use our newfound wisdom and apply it to our own lives and grow in our relationship with the Lord. Learn more and subscribe by visiting HistoryforChristianTeens.com.

Don’t neglect the study of Bible history – it is essential for anyone who wants to grow closer to the Lord. And who knows, you might just find that you have a new passion for learning about the past!

May Planning and Ultimate Checklists Freebie

Other than the holidays, May is usually one of the busiest months in the year for homeschooling families. This is where planning and thinking ahead come in very handy, because there is so much to do. Our ultimate checklists and planning sheets for the month of May will be a huge help.

Ultimate Checklists May text with image of flowers in a bowl

May is full of lots of festivities and special events. The end of the school year is creeping up upon many. That means there is end of the year testing for your children or portfolio reviews. You will need to wrap up the end of the homeschool year and start planning for a new one. There are also end of the year parties and graduations for many families.

It can be difficult to wrap up the end of your school year and also plan a graduation at the same time. Thankfully, Felice has tons of experience in all of these. She has included some great ideas, budget helps and creative out of the box ways to make everything happen in a short period of time!

Planning for your homeschool graduate

If you have a homeschool graduate you will want to start making preparations for a graduation ceremony, or a special party to celebrate your graduate. Will your child be participating in a formal ceremony? Many families choose to have their own ceremony at home with close family and friends.

There are lots of things to plan for a graduation party such as: decorations, photo boards, food and a cake. This can get pretty expensive, but thankfully it can be done on a budget. There are many items that you probably have in your own home that you can repurpose for a nice party. Close family and friends may also be willing to pitch in and provide side dishes for a big party.

When my son graduated, my husband smoked a bunch of meat and we had BBQ sandwiches. All our friends helped out and brought large pans of mac and cheese, pasta salad and rolls for sandwiches.

Celebrating Mom

Mother’s Day is also another special event during the month of May. Sometimes Moms can feel like they aren’t appreciated because their family just may not know what they want or need. Thankfully, Felice has came up with some amazing planning sheets that you can hand to your children. It may give them some ideas for fun crafts and letters they can write for Mother’s Day.

What is included in the May Ultimate Checklist?

This month’s checklist has planning help for Graduation and gift ideas to give your kids for Mother’s Day. There are also end of homeschool year and summer planning and summer reading ideas.  We love the checklists that are all ready for you so you don’t have to think about what you need to do.

Ultimate Checklists for April Freebie

Happy April! Can you believe April is here already? April is full of fun activities and a special holiday for Christians. It is when we celebrate Easter. There are lots of thing to talk about with your family and Easter activities to plan. Our Ultimate Checklists for April can help you out greatly with planning your activities and traditions this month.

April ultimate lists text with phpto of easter basket with painted eggs.

How do you celebrate Easter with your family? Do you get up early on Sunday morning and do the Easter bunny and fun Easter egg hunts? Do you dress up for church in fancy Easter clothes? Is your focus solely on the Christian aspect of the life, death and glorious resurrection of Jesus?

Maybe you do both and celebrate with fun, kid friendly family traditions as well as religious traditions. Whatever you observe, there is a lot to plan and do this month.

Our family has never done the “easter bunny”, but we do have a tradition of doing Easter baskets. I will fill them with traditional candy treats. I also like to include some fun little special trinkets, a cute spring themed stuffed animal and usually a cross bookmark, and a new devotional.

We dress up for church though, now that my children are much older they don’t appreciate me dressing them in matching clothes anymore. As long as we can attend church together as a family that’s all I care about now.

After church, we have a nice Easter lunch together with ham and southern sides. We always like to invite friends that don’t have a place to go and celebrate Easter with them too. This is a great way to share the love of Jesus with others.

Easter Holiday Planning

If you have younger kids you know there are quite a few things that you may need to plan out. You won’t want to forget the Easter gifts, and planning outfits for church.

Then there are the Easter egg hunts. If you are in a homeschool group or play group you may have an egg hunt to attend. You won’t want to forget to get candies, stickers, treats and plastic eggs before they are sold out in the stores. I hate waiting last minute and scrambling the night before an egg hunt to stuff all the eggs. Especially if you have multiple children, this can take a while.

You may want to look for egg hunts in your neighborhood or attend one at a church. Make sure you get those on the calendar, because those dates creep up fast!

If you are hosting an Easter lunch you may want to do your grocery shopping early to make sure that items you need don’t run out with the shortages we have been seeing.

There is a lot to remember and plan out, and that’s why this month’s April Ultimate Checklist includes a lot of Easter planning so you don’t forget!

What is included in the April Ultimate Checklist?

This month’s checklist has 54 pages of planning help devoted to Easter and spring time activities. We love the checklists that are all ready for you so you don’t have to think about what you need to do. Of course, there are still the blank ones for those that like to plan everything out themselves and customize the lists for their families.

Ultimate Checklists – March Freebie

Can you believe that March is already here? I am blown away how quickly the seasons change. It seems like we were just planning for Christmas, and now here we are almost into the spring season.

Ultimate Checklists March

March is full of so many busy activities, as well as fun opportunities for your family. There are tax papers to gather up and last minute paperwork to file. The first day of spring is on March 20th. With springtime, comes new growth, so if you garden you will be working on your spring garden. Spring cleaning usually happens in March as well. There is always so much to do this month.

March Activities and Holidays

That is the focus that you are going to see in this month’s subscriber freebie Ultimate Checklists.  Felice has some of the most wonderful ideas for help, organization and planning for all these activities and holidays.

Lent begins on March 2nd. This is the 40 days to prepare our hearts before Easter with fasting and prayer. Many families use this time to fast or abstain from a specific activity to remember how Jesus spent 40 days in the desert before his ministry. This is a great time to add daily Bible readings as a family. You may want to plan for that, so you don’t forget your goals for the next 40 days. The blank Lent checklist gives you plenty of time to brain storm ideas and to help keep everyone on track.

St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17th. As homeschool parents, we always like to turn holidays into educational learning opportunities. You are going to enjoy the Discover St. Patrick Mini Research Unit Study with questions to research and fill out. That is also included in this freebie.

Easter will be here before you know it, so March is the perfect time to start some Easter preparations. Yes, there is even a checklist for that!

Let’s take a look at what’s inside this month’s checklist:

Since March is such a busy month, this month’s checklist includes lots of lists and activities to help keep you organized. There are fun March ideas and activities for kids as well as Spring Cleaning lists broken down by categories. These lists will help to take things one step at a time. You can work on dejunking a room, cleaning a closet, and there is even a list for organizing your garage.

We also love the blank lists that you can use to create your very  own customized lists.

February Checklist Freebie

I can’t believe that February is almost here. The new year is in full swing and this is the time where we continue to work on our goals and resolutions and see what is working for our families. There are also some fun things that are coming up in the month of February so some February checklists will help you keep all the things organized.

February Checklist Freebie

We hope you are enjoying our new Ultimate Checklists. They sure help you think through the things that you need to tackle and help you to stay on track. What are the important things on your list this month? Some things may include grocery shopping  days, mega-cooking days, or doctor appointments.

They will help you schedule weekly cleaning days or laundry days. How about school days, field trips, and all the extra curricular activities to keep track of. Keeping a monthly calendar for family events will help!

Valentine’s Day With Family

The most notable date of the calendar in Feburary is the 14th which centers around Valentine’s Day.  In the commercialism of the world this always revolves around flowers, candy, cards and balloons.

Some families ignore this day completely, while others enjoy making it a special day of love for their children an their spouse. Do you have plans to go out to dinner with your loved ones or do you prefer to have a special dinner and desserts at home with your whole family?

We have always enjoyed celebrating together as a family and having a fancy dinner and heart shaped desserts. One year we had a Beauty and the Beast themed dinner and we made some entrees from the Be Our Guest scene in the movie and the youngest dressed up as Belle.  This year my girls want to do a Lady and the Tramp themed dinner complete with giant meatballs, long skinny breadsticks.

These detailed dinners take quite a bit of planning to make sure that all the fine details are taken care of. From recipes, to ingredients, shopping lists and decorations there are a lot of things to keep track. Checklists are such a great help!

What is inside this month’s Ultimate List freebie?

This month’s Ultimate List includes many lists and activities to make all of your February family events extra special. There are even blank forms for you to fill out for your own customized lists. Your older students may want to take some of these and create their own planners and checklists for special events and cooking and meal planning.
