The office will be closed from 9am-3 each day during the week of Thanksgiving, but tutoring will still be happening unless you cancel or reschedule. Miss Jodi is available each day except for Thanksgiving Day, and will be glad to meet you at the office at a convenient time for you. She will be ready to meet you at your normal day and time unless you change it, and normal cancellation and missed session policies will prevail. Have a wonderful holiday and don’t forget to read!

Back in the groove?

Here in the Smith Sisters School for Boys, we’ve got the January Blues. We are struggling to get back on track with school, our schedules, and life in general.

Aunt Kristy/Mama has been sick, missing several days of work, and even more of school. Aunt Jodi/Mom has been sick, missed some work and some school. Mr. T and a Slick have had trouble focusing after their Christmas break that was longer than planned due to illnesses. We’ve been a hot mess of schedule juggling, coughing, exhaustion and fevers. Everything has felt like this...

BUT... hope springs eternal, yes? We are closing in on our first REAL week of school since the new year started, the schedule juggling is calming down, and we are all nearly well again. Take that, January Blues. 

How about you, lifelong learning friends? Has the new year been kind to you and yours? Are you chasing your New Year’s Goals with reckless abandon or are you still buried in holiday decorations, leftovers and wrapping paper bits? Does your student need some post holiday break assistance in getting back on track? How can we help you conquer the dreaded...

School Year Review: December 2017

We are wrapping up school for the holiday break. Here at The Smith Sisters School for Boys (the silly name we made up for our combined homeschool years ago), we have accomplished 85 days of lessons, meaning the school year is already almost half over, can you believe that?! If you have a student in any of the local schools in Las Cruces, your child has accomplished approximately the same amount. Hooray for all the hard work we’ve put in already this year!

Mr. T and Slick have been hard at work this year learning the 3 Rs plus supplemental activities with “Aunt Jodi/Mom” every morning and learning Bible, Science, History, Geography, Art, Music and various other topics with “Aunt Kristy/Mama” in the afternoons. Both are thriving with working together, as they have generally been only students in their class at home previous to this. Jodi and I are so proud of their effort this year and can’t wait to see where the rest of this school year takes us. 

Happy Holidays, friends! Enjoy the tail end of 2017 and call a hearty welcome to 2018!

The Holidays are Here

This last week saw Thanksgiving arrive and depart, leaving the Holiday Hustle in its wake. 

The holidays are upon us, friends. And whether you celebrate Christmas, observe Hanukkah, enjoy Kwanza, or you’re too cool for Yule, the holidays always mean an avalanche of extra events to attend, cookies to bake, and gifts to purchase. School is out, which means you might need to be looking for somewhere for the kiddos to be while you head to work each day. 

Consider this a friendly reminder of two kinds...

 1. Add a few of our events/camps for the kiddos to your calendar before it gets overly filled with other things. It will give them something fun and educational to do, and give you peace of mind while you head to work each day over winter break from school.

2. It’s ok to say no to things that don’t fit with your family’s schedule or priorities. Don’t be guilted into taking on so much that you can’t enjoy the holiday with your family.
