A nature walk with some friends.
Life has been a bit busy lately. I’ve been working in the evenings to help a friend. As much as I love helping friends, I truly am excited to be back home with my family for my evenings! I respect mama’s who have to work, but I was definitely meant to be home. I am so grateful for my husband, and his willingness to work hard for our family. Hard to imagine that it was his idea 14 yrs ago for me to stay home… and it was the best decision ever for our family.
School has been in full swing again. Yay!!
The Younger Kids
We’ve had a steady routine of phonics, copywork, & arithmetic.
Consistency is so important in these earlier years .
We had a great lesson working with magnets.
Discovered our “silver”ware was not magnetic, but our random other spoons were.
We also had lessons All About Apples complete with taste tests, crafts, and stories.
How to treat books
