What to Read Wednesday: Denim Jumper Edition

Word on the street is that yoga pants are the new denim jumper, but I did just happen to buy a darling denim dress from Old Navy clearance last week… OHMYGOSHWHATISHAPPENING

This week’s What to Read Wednesday is dedicated to the weary homeschool moms who make the learnin’ happen todo los dias, without praise or thanks. Comrades, I salute you.

We’re gearing up for back to school in just T minus five weeks– not that I’m counting, or anything. About to ring the bell on our fifth year schoolin’ at home, what would I encourage my fellow home educators to read in preparation, you ask? While there’s truly a PLETHORA of good homeschool-themed reads out there, hands down the volume most helpful to moi was Durenda Wilson’s The Unhurried Homeschooler.

I can’t recommend it enough. I wrote a detailed review of it here, but it’s at once both motivating and liberating and should be considered required reading for moms who educate at home…

Have you ever read a book and found it so near to autobiographical that you suspect Dom Deluise is waiting to pop out from behind a curatin, shouting, “Smile! You’re on Candid Camera!”? Durenda is in my head: She understands the universal homeschool struggle, and in response generously shares 20+ years of hindsight in an effort to encourage her fellow comrades, the next generation in homeschooling moms.

New ‘schoolroom’ for a new school year in a new state, living room of our recently remodeled fixer-upper.
