hsmomssecretpals One thing I hope #HSmomsSecretPals does is encourage & inspire each other throughout our #mothering & #homeschooling journeys. • Every so often we will post questions for y'all to answer here to help other #hsmommas who may be struggling or need a little help. • Sometimes the questions will just be for fun too! So how would you mommas answer this? What's your BEST advice/tips? Picture a momma whose children are under 7.... 1mon
  •   thedailysquare My son is 5, I have him help with small / easy things; just one example: we have a handheld vacuum that he uses every night under the table after dinner and in the kitchen. At least that chore is done daily and he is learning to be helpful with a joyful heart. Big chores that I tackle, just day by day doing the best I can. My motto: this is our life and our home, we don't live in a museum. Enjoy! 1mon
  •   hsmamaof6 Having 6 kids 3 teens and 3 under 11..there are alot of chores but they get split up and we all work together making all the chores not fall on mama ♡♡♡ 1mon
  •   b_ran5 Spacing out "school time" or stuff we have to get done.. so during breaks we can clean up here and there or fold some clothes...or just do something lol 1mon
  •   alwayshisangel01 We have morning chores, afternoon chores and a quick tidy up in the evening and School is thrown in between the morning and afternoon chores. At times I have a #latenightmoppingdate and #oopsIforgottogradepaperstoday 1mon
  •   pottershousewoodbridgeva When my kids were young, we used to do a zone clean every day for thirty minutes. We'd all deep clean the room and is distribute chores based in ability... 1 kid might wipe windows, another wipe baseboards, and another just pick up toys, while I quickly did the rest. Then I'd do kitchen and sweep and mop every day during nap time. At least once a day my kitchen was clean even if a wreck every other time 1mon
  •   sarahkathleenm I picked the 7 most important things that need to be cleaned each week and assigned one per day. I spend about 20 minutes each day doing these essential tasks, then the rest happens if it happens 1mon

plantsandpillars Over 20 years ago, I packed up one of my favorite toys to save for the day I had kids of my own to pass it to. I dumped out the pieces with no instructions tonight and pieced it back together to give to my girls this Christmas! #playmobil #christmas #memories #hsmommas 2mon

thomas.jefferson2 On this day in 1748, Martha Wayles, future wife of #ThomasJefferson, is born. Martha “Patty” Jefferson is a bit of a mystery! We don’t even have a portrait of her, although the attached silhouette is believed to be hers. Thomas and Patty were deeply in love, but unfortunately Patty had difficult pregnancies that were hard on her health. She died 4 months after giving birth to the Jeffersons’ 6th child. The #Monticello overseer described the scene: “Mr. Jefferson sat by her, and she gave him directions about a good many things that she wanted done. When she came to the children, she wept, and could not speak for some time.…[S]he told him she could not die happy if she thought her four children were ever to have a stepmother brought in over them….Mr. Jefferson promised her solemnly that he would never marry again.” (Some historians question the account because it incorrectly states the number of living children Patty then had.) When Patty passed away, Jefferson was inconsolable. His daughter later said that he was led to the library “almost in a state of insensibility.” He locked himself in his room, sobbing and pacing for weeks. He also went on horseback rides. “[I]n those melancholy rambles,” his daughter wrote, “I was his constant companion, a solitary witness to many a violent burst of grief.” Jefferson finally pulled himself together and accepted a mission to serve #America in France. He’d turned down these types of requests before, because of Patty. But now he went. Jefferson had other relationships, but he never remarried. Was he keeping a promise that he’d made to the love of his life? We may never know. .1787 #TDIH #thisdayinhistory #OnThisDay #AmericanHistory #USHistory #history #liberty #freedom #HS #homeschool #HSMommas #knowyourhistory #TBT #throwbackthursday 2mon

servingfromhome The printer cartridge needs to be replaced, which means I can't print or copy any worksheets. The toddler is sick so she's super cranky. And it's snowing buckets outside. So we've declared today a snow day! Crafts, snow play, reading and baking it is :) #rollwithit #hsmommas 2mon
