{Free} Bug & Farm Animal Printable Notebooking Pages

Today, I got to start my day by getting my hair done. Sure was nice. I never have had my hair done by someone else first thing in the morning. My Ladybug gave me 3 different hairstyles throughout the course of the day. 🙂 I did, in fact, wear the final hairstyle when I brought her to gymnastics in the evening. I just wanted to share with you guys this awesomeness. 😉 You guys remember a couple of weeks ago,…

Morning Circle Time

Morning Circle Time

  Yesterday I talked about what is in our morning basket. I am definitely looking forward to starting this and I know the girls are too (they saw the Mad Libs and Aesop’s Fables sitting in it). This is only half of our morning routine, though. The other half of our new morning routine caters more to my toddler to help him feel like he is more of a part of our school. Especially since he is a sponge and…

What’s in Our Morning Basket?

What’s in Our Morning Basket?

  *While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!* I have high hopes for the next 6 weeks. I want to be more intentional with the way we start our days and our morning time. The last six weeks have been a struggle. Our good days usually started out with time with Jesus Calling for Kids. Our other days, well, didn’t. They ended up being a…

Friday Favorites – Teacher Discounts

Friday Favorites – Teacher Discounts

Hey y’all! Well, my week of rest is winding down. I’ve had to do some more school shopping (getting that morning basket ready!) and pay from some upcoming field trips. This got me to thinking about saving money with discounts available to us homeschooling folks. There are already some stores and places I know of, and have been able to, thankfully, use my homeschool ID card to get the teacher discount. But there were more places that accept our status….

Morning Basket – Including the Toddler

Morning Basket – Including the Toddler

*While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!*   While we’re on a little break, I’ve decided to change up our routine a little bit and create a more official morning time. I’ve been listening to some of Pam Barnhill’s podcasts about morning time and morning baskets and I think that this sounds like the best way to go about this time of the day. So…

Our Schedule & a Freebie!!

Our Schedule & a Freebie!!

We are half way through our first six-week session now and I’m going to be honest with you, it hasn’t been easy. There have been days where I’ve questioned my life choices. But thankfully, my husband has been there at the end of the long days telling me it’s okay and we’re all doing just fine. So far, I’ve learned that homeschooling with a toddler (a run-full-tilt-till-you-crash-into-something all-boy two year old) is no picnic. But I think we’re on the…

Friday Favorites: Field Trip Ideas

Friday Favorites: Field Trip Ideas

Hey everyone! We’ve made it through another week! Feels good! 🙂 Earlier this week, I was chatting with a fellow homeschool mom and we got around to talking about the new school year. After comparing some of our new curriculum choices, we got around to talking about field trips. Ya know, it’s funny. Somehow, I don’t know how it happens, but it happens that along the way we forget about going out on just for fun field trips. (It’s funny…

First Day of School Activities

First Day of School Activities

  *While this post contains affiliate links, all opinions are my own. Read my disclosure policy here and thanks for supporting my blog!* We started up school again last week! I know, it seems really early. However, we wrapped up our year in the middle of May. We’ve been on vacation for awhile. Plus, it’s really really hot here right now so we won’t be going outside very much right now anyway. [I spent a good portion of my break…

Planning for Another School Year: Combined Subjects

Today, I want to take some time to share what I’m planning for the subjects…

Planning for Another School Year: The Core Subjects

Planning for Another School Year: The Core Subjects

*This post does contain affiliate links. To read my disclaimer policy, head here.*   I did it! I’ve planned out my upcoming school year for 3rd grade and for 6th grade! Just as a heads-up, though this covers only core subjects, this post is packed with advice. I promise, it’s worth it to make it all the way through! 😉 This is actually a big deal for me. We are entering our second full year of homeschooling. (Rosie has been…
