I am so excited about the possibilities that 2015 holds! I am looking forward to bringing you lots of homeschool encouragement, humor, and commiseration. I can’t wait until you see some of the hands-on activity ideas that my brand-new team of writers and I are going to bring you. Before we jump headlong into a new year of new content, though, I’d like to highlight the posts that y’all loved best in 2014.

6. The 10 Commandments of Homeschooling – I guess I shouldn’t have mixed serious and funny; some people thought I was serious about #7. (I wasn’t.)

3. How to Make an Edible Cell Model – If you’re studying biology this year, you’ll want to make this edible cell cake. It is one of the best projects we’ve ever done.


2. 7 Things You Should Never Say to a Homeschool Mom – This is a humorous look at some of those things that homeschooling moms (and dads) hear maybe a little too often. It’s supposed to be funny and is not encouraging snarkiness. You’ll want to read the comments, too. Some of them are hilarious.

1. 50 Reasons Homeschooled Kids Love Being Homeschooled – This post was not only, hands-down, the top post of 2014, but is the top post on my site ever. Despite accusations to the contrary, all comments were, to the best of my knowledge, made by actual homeschool students or graduates and compiled by me.

Did you find any of your favorites in the list or discover any you missed? Thank you so much for making each of these posts popular last year. Here’s looking forward to sharing more homeschool humor and encouragement with you in 2015. I pray that each of you have an amazing year!

  1. Thanks for the new parents post. We just (gulp) sent off the email tonight saying ‘sorry our kid’s not coming back’… and other than one friend online (who doesn’t live nearby) and the library ladies (so supportive).. I have zero support outside of my husband…. so really no one knows…

    We sent a bright kid off to kindergarten and got back a kid who had the manners and speech of a 3 year old. It’s taken us every ounce of Christmas break to break those bad habits and I’m not giving her back to them to mess up our hard work all.over.again.

    1. You are very welcome! I hope you and your family have a wonderful first year homeschooling – and that your extended family and friends see the results and get on board. While you don’t need the support, it’s preferable to the negativity.

  2. I love your blog, Kris. These were some of my favorite WUHS posts too! And now I’m looking forward to the exciting changes coming in 2015 as your team of contributors begins adding fresh content for younger families.
