Confessions of a First Time Baseball Mom

Confessions of a First Time Baseball Mom

So. Jonah started playing baseball this month. While I played softball when I was young, the role of a baseball mom is definitely a new one for me. In just the three short weeks that Jonah has played, my routine has been thrown topsy-turvy and I’m all discombobulated. I also have a few confessions… Fall […]

10 Books About Worms

Nature Study Printables for Preschoolers

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been studying about worms in science. Jonah has enjoyed learning how worms help the soil by digging tunnels and breaking things down by eating them. And because he’s a typical boy, he’s been fascinated that dirt is full of worm “waste.” We’ve found some really cute books at our […]

Our Homeschool Curriculum 2013-2014

My Father's World 1st Grade Curriculum

I find it hard to believe that we are entering our second year of homeschool. How is it possible that I have a First Grader?!?! We loved My Father’s World for Kindergarten, so we have chosen to stick with them again for First Grade. We were so excited on “Box Day“, the day we received […]

Asher in a basket

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in InstaFriday. I’ve missed it. I have found it to be one of my favorite ways to recap what we’ve been up to. I hope you enjoy getting a glimpse of our everyday life as well… Asher has a thing for getting in baskets. He’s such a silly […]

Mommy & Me: Special Time

Construction Paper Clown Noses

Since Asher came six months ago, Jonah has needed some extra doses of special time with Mommy and Daddy. While he truly loves Asher, the process of becoming brothers has been hard. Finding our groove as a family of four hasn’t been easy. It isn’t something I have written much about, mainly because it has […]

Jonah says…

“College cheese is on sale, Mom.” (AKA: Cottage Cheese) “Look, Mom, it’s 11:25!” (Lucky guess. He adds “20” in front of all the numbers on a clock.) “I’m on safari!” Gosh, I love this silly boy!

Mommy & Me: Coffee Filter Snowflakes

Coffe Filter Snowflake

Snow is a precious commodity around our region. We get snow, just not very often. Nor does it stay around very long once it finally snows. So, we often have to make our own. Enter…Coffee Filter Snowflakes. Jonah still needs LOTS of practice with scissors. LOTS. He keeps wanting to rotate his hand like a […]

A Reader is Born

We’ve been practicing three letter words (also known as word families) around our house for quite some time now. Honestly, Jonah just kinda started sounding them out one day…by himself. Ok, ok, so I’ve set him up for success with all of the fun things I do with him and I’ve been really strategic about […]
