We all have days (maybe weeks, months, even years), where we are plain worn out, discouraged, or frustrated with homeschooling. Homeschooling just isn’t working out like we thought it would (or should).
Our Road from Busywork to Freedom!
I have found that the things I am most passionate about are often the things that bring me the most overwhelm. Why? I tend to do everything I can to make my most passionate dreams a success and end up lost in the minute details of each step instead of focusing on the bigger picture.
She told me to put everything that wasn’t working for me and my kids under the bed. She encouraged me to start using 2 tools consistently with my kids. With these two tools, she said I could completely change the dynamics of how we homeschool. After six years of overwhelm, I was ready to try anything!

For each plant featured, the pages include a small color picture, which is nice to help the children identify it in the wild and know how to color it. Then there is such a delightful selection of pages for each species. Older children can draw the plant on one nice big sheet or have lines to write about the plant as well as draw the plant on another sheet. Younger children can just color a large picture of the plant, or color a picture on a page that has just a few lines for journaling.
The set is appropriate for all ages, preschool through high school, and we will be using it with all our children for many years to come.
