The day right before this photo was taken, he said “those words”. He has been my best communicator from a young age. I’ve never had a child that could communicate like this boy. He often baffles his Dad when they are speaking on the phone because he can carry a conversation so well. Everyone call… Continue reading Not a Baby Anymore
Some homeschoolers take their books with them on vacation and some don't. I feel like there are a lot of hours in a day and knowing that the morning weather is a little chilly in the morning here we felt like this was a good way to pass the time and stay caught up in… Continue reading School At The Pool
Maybe not the weirdest post ever written by a homeschooling Mom, but definitely one with purpose.

Sometimes Birthdays can seem so complicated. The good news is they don't need to be. I kinda flip flop when it comes to birthday parties. Certain years seem more fitting than most, like birthday number 5, then number 10, and even 12 just because it's the last year before they are in the teen years.… Continue reading Large Family Birthdays
