Planning Thanksgiving Dinner and High School Graduation


What are you plans for Thanksgiving Dinner?


I'm going to my daughter-in-law's home, and both sides of the family are getting together to share the job of cooking. It’s going to be a great time, relaxing with family.  To make the day more enjoyable, we all planned ahead and discussed what we would bring.  I know I needed to started cooking early on Thanksgiving day.

Think about all you are making.  Appetizers or chips and veggies with dip. Stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry relish, vegetables, rolls.  Pumpkin pie, whipped cream, and coffee. It’s going to take a lot of work to get this meal made.  It will take careful planning to get the whole meal on the table HOT all at once.

- Parents who successfully pull it off, they know the drill.
- Plan your menu in advance
- Read recipes, so you know how to make each dish
- Decorate in advance.
- Cook ahead what you can.
- Carefully time when you put each item in the oven.
- Set the table the night before

Successfully homeschooling high school is very similar!  It takes planning and preparation and timing.
- Plan your goals each year so you know what you're doing
- Read about college admission so you can get scholarships
- Encourage delight directed learning when you can.
- Plan in advance for the high school courses you need.
- Carefully time high school tests
- Set yourself up a successful junior year, so you are prepared for the frantic event.
Homeschooling high school is NOT impossible.  It just takes some planning.  It's really just like Thanksgiving dinner!  Plan ahead, work ahead, and come out ahead!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
