What Home schoolers Love to Hear & Back to School 2014

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 in About Me, homeschool, Homeschooling, Learning

I think we are the last ones around to have our official back to school day! I grew up on the east coast and school did not start until after Labor Day. That is how it should be, am I right? After an extreme amount of thought, exploring options, involving the girls in our decision, […]

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 in About Me, homeschool, Homeschooling, Learning, Parties, party time, recipes

My girls are too cute, they request the same thing every year for our Back to School Dinner. ¬†Prosciutto alfredo, breads with dipping sauces, brussel sprouts, a fancy drink, and a treat.

Abby’s Baptism Day

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014 in About Me, Learning

Abby’s baptism day was so sweet, simple, beautiful, pure, and perfect for her. We sure did miss her grandparents on a mission, and family that lives far away. But everyone that lives close by was able to come and she was just so happy. We prepared for her baptism day by using this binder: I […]

Homeschooling Update (aka: mom guilt part 5,789,321)

Saturday, April 27th, 2013 in Learning

Let me preface this by saying that homeschooling moms, you are wonderful. Those of you that do it well (oh and there are so many of you) BRAVO. I believe your children are incredibly intelligent, well-adjusted, social, talented, and much more. Oh and so are you. I angers me that people stereotype homeschooling so awfully. […]

Book Club with My Girls

Monday, March 4th, 2013 in About Me, Learning

Why can’t I be good at multitasking? Aren’t all women good at that? Why not me? For example the ability ¬†to cook AND tend kids. Or read a book and talk to my husband. Or write something while trying to eat something. It just flops, it does not work. I start to feel very tense […]

Family Timeline Project

Friday, December 14th, 2012 in Crafts, homeschool, Learning

Abby’s favorite subject in school is history–any type of history. Past presidents, lds history, pioneers, Egyptians, nomads, etc. Homeschooler or no homeschooler I would look into The Story of the World history books to have in the home. They come along with an activity book as well. When we were first starting and learning what […]

Where Do I Live?

Friday, December 14th, 2012 in Crafts, homeschool, Learning

Before we moved Cameron was really confused on where the world we were going. Costa Rica? Wait. California? Wait. To the palm trees? In California? No, Costa Rica? In America? Not America? Wait where? So when I saw this idea on a teacher forum for this little book I knew it was perfect. It also […]

Saturday, September 1st, 2012 in homeschool, Learning, Life

This is not going to become a homeschooling blog. I am trying out homeschooling this year, I feel confident in our decision to try homeschooling for a year. I do not know if it will be the right thing to continue to do after this year. This is a trial year and I am very […]

Farewell Kindergarten

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012 in About Me, Learning

Throughout the year Abby has written on her own blog about her school year, we still need to add a thing or two, but she has done a great job. On the last day I kept on waiting for Abby to be a bit sad, but it never came. She is really excited for Summer: […]
