A Little Bit of Everything
Hello Beautiful People! How is life today? Has the weather been good to you or for you? I know out on the West Coast it's been crazy. Which is weird to me because as a kid who grew up in California, I didn't even know what snow was the first time I saw it. I... Continue Reading →
Plans and Changing Plans
Good day everyone. How was your Labor Day holiday? I had half a holiday, I guess? Hubby was home for most of the day and went into work after nap time, but since I'm not a morning person I think it worked out well. I've also been dealing with an eye infection that finally started... Continue Reading →

Happy Tuesday! Did you know that today is the beginning of a Biblical New Year? I actually did not know this until this morning.

Our Homeschool Experience
I am SO excited to have my first ever guest post. Katy is a good friend of mine, a fellow dance and homeschool mom.

I even have a space for anything extra we might do, like watching a documentary. I don't plan our school year out all at once, instead I plan week-by-week. That may seem... Continue Reading →
7 Ways to Educate Outside of Schoolbooks.
Do you remember how exciting field trip days were? A day of not sitting at a boring desk, reading out of the same material, shuffling from class to class, just going through the mundane monotony. Believe it or not, sometimes homeschooling can feel the same way. Thankfully it doesn't have to be all school books... Continue Reading →
The Freedom of Homeschooling
I first wrote this post in September 2020. Not much has changed since our first year of homeschooling, including my opinion. We have found great new materials to use and we've brought Isbe in with her very own workbooks (per her request, of course). This year, I'll even be doing some homeschooling myself, as I...

My Little Herb Garden.
It's finally happening, guys! I am getting my herb garden. This is something I have wanted for awhile now and it is going to happen this Spring. Question: Do you say Herb with an H or not? I used to pronounce the H until my mom told me it was silent. However, I recently heard... Continue Reading →
Homeschooling with Star Wars Preschool.
Good morning! Or whatever time it is as you read this. I hope you are having a good Tuesday. Two weeks ago we made the decision to officially bring Isbe in on the Homeschool game, even though she's still pretty young. We bought her her own homeschooling books that match Ade's and now she begs... Continue Reading →
