A Day in the Life of Texas Timberdoodlers

Hi! I’m Josie and I’m mom to Samuel (5) and Ellie (1). I am new to homeschooling as the parent (my son is going in to kindergarten this fall); but both my husband, Jed, and I are homeschool grads. We are both so grateful for the opportunities we gained from our schooling experiences, both personally and professionally–and we are hoping to share similar opportunities with our kids. Jed works in bank finance, and I am currently in an online BSN program (so I’m still a homeschooler!). Samuel is an avid early reader, and loves swimming, Legos, and drawing. Ellie is […]

A Day in the Life of Colorado Timberdoodlers

I’m Cristi from Colorado Springs. We’re a military family with one college student traipsing around Europe for the summer, one high school student hanging out by the pool saving lives, and one middle school student trying to beat me at board games. Our Morning: We’re all marching to different schedules this summer. My husband headed off to work, then our youngest daughter wandered through the kitchen to fix some toast. I was wasting time curriculum shopping online, but took a break to measure out her morning medicines and fix myself some scrambled eggs. We spent most of the morning playing board […]

A Day in the Life of Hong Kong Timberdoodlers

Hi, We’re the Low family – 2 girls in Preschool and K1. Originally from Singapore, we moved to Hong Kong on account of my husband’s work in Sports Media. Sydney is our older daughter in Preschool and Kennedy is the toddler and baby of the family. Sydney is really precocious, she started reading and doing simple subtractions at 2.5 years old without formal lessons. It came to a surprise to us when we went to visit family on a long holiday. Since then, I’ve been trying to keep up with her. Kennedy is the 1.5 year old toddler who thinks […]

How Do Charter Schools Work?

For the sake of simplicity, throughout this blog post we’ll refer to all home-based charter schools, home study divisions of public schools, etc. under the title of “Charter School.” In a nutshell a charter school gets state funding for each child they have enrolled, just as a public school would. The charter schools we work with here at Timberdoodle pass on a chunk of the funding to you for curriculum purchases (orders usually have to be placed through them) and keep the rest of the funds to cover their overhead costs. Charter schools want you to sign up with them […]

We have four children remaining at home: Erin, age 17, her daughter Faith, age 19 months, Hannah, age 4, and Eve, age 3 weeks. Hannah is a ball of energy and excitement as she loves to be a brand new big sister and help with cooking, changing diapers, and picking up Little Sis whenever Mom’s not looking…not to mention how she keeps begging to start her ‘new school’ already. Our Morning: Our mornings start early, as […]
