Editor's Note

It's August 1st and we are still somewhat up in the air as to whether my high school sophomore will be heading back to school. 

Yikes!  Part of me wishes that he were still young enough that playdough and the  Magic Tree House Books would still satisfy his educational needs. But now it's Algebra II, German II and World History.   I pray school is in session.   

Here's some GREAT ideas if your still homeschooling, against your wishes, this Fall.

Hey parents!

I don’t know about you, but when I was thrown into the reality of homeschooling I had a day or so of complete fear and anxiety! I’ve never been the amazing Pinterest mom that can whip up a batch of ANYTHING and have my kids play with it for hours and #imokwiththat

So, I reached out to friends and my fit community and everyone pitched in to help one another. I’m hoping one of these activities may help you too! Please share with anyone that may need some ideas and stay tuned to my Instagram channel and stories >> @bodyrebooted and I’ll keep sharing whatever I can find!! And HANG IN THERE….You’re doing GREAT! xo
