Who is Misokie and what’s so great about her corner? Well, I’m Misokie, Lori Ward and in my blog (corner) I’ll be sharing stories from my life, homeschool tips, times saving tips, money saving tips and a lot of fun along the way. Why Misokie? Well, I am from Oklahoma and I live in Georgia. I also grew up in Missouri. Mookie didn’t sound so great to me so I went with Misokie. It puts Missouri and Oklahoma together. Plus I really do miss Oklahoma. I miss Missouri too, I have lots of family in friends west of the Mississippi. So that explains the name. Now who am I? I’m a mother of 5 and a grandma of 5. My oldest is 26 my youngest is 7. There are 12 years difference between my next to youngest and my youngest. Life is full of surprises. I am homeschooling my youngest right now. I’ve homeschooled off and on for 13 years. 3 of my oldest 4 graduated from home. Then one decided he wanted to graduate from regular school and boy did he, he graduated with honors. Yes, I’m a proud momma. My oldest daughter is a shift leader, then my other daughter is an accounts payable manager, and my oldest son is a lead loan officer. I still have one working on college. Then of course I have my little guy working on the 2nd grade. I couldn’t have made it through all these years without my husband. We’ve been married for 23 years. I feel like God put him in my life. We’ve had our ups and downs just like everyone else but I feel very blessed in the life I have.
I love saving money whether it is just saving a few dollars or actually upcycling something. I think one of my favorite things to save money on right now is homeschool.
As anyone who is homeschooling knows it can be crazy expensive but it doesn’t have to be. You can save money in lots of ways. I hope to be able to show you how to cut back on your budget and not lose any of the important learning aspect of your school. One of my favorite ways to save money is by using the internet to its fullest. There are so many free printouts out there. I use coloring sheets, Minecraft math sheets, story writing starters as well as planners. I will be sharing a lot of ways to save not only on homeschool! I hope you enjoy the blog. Talk to you again soon!
