It's been a long time since I've last blogged (like over 4 months if you're counting). The reality of it is my life has slowed way down (which should give me more time to blog)! But by slowing things down, I've been able to be really intentional and purposeful with how I spend my time (and to be honest, blogging hasn't been on that list). But we've had a big shift in our family and I feel the need to share. And truly want to try to keep up with blogging more regularly. =)
The big change is that we are homeschooling our kindergarten son! There are a lot of reasons why we decided this but it really just boils down to the fact that we truly felt convicted that this is what the Lord wants for him and our family and we're being obedient! We've gotten off to a great start so far.
We've been having loads of fun and I'm really enjoying planning activities that appeal to his interests and the fact that he's all boy (and likes to move!) We had fun playing hopscotch to practice counting by tens.
And both of my boys loved mixing up some baking soda and shaving cream to make "snow" ('cause I'm sure that's the only kind we'll see this year!)
He's been reading the first Magic Treehouse book and writing summaries of each chapter.
In math we were working on K.OA.3 and used so many great activities I found on TPT for free (I am so grateful for all the wonderful freebies)! His favorite was the Decomposing Monster by Jennifer Drake. So fun!
Well, that's it for now! I'm hoping to post more regularly and let you know what we're learning. Thanks for reading!
