Day 3 project of #kidmadechristmas2018
the kids made leaf and flower pressed ornaments to give to their papa and grandma for Christmas. Thank you @themakermum
for the inspiration, as always! ❤️ For those of you that are curious, all the kids did was trace a triangle out of craft paper, cut it & lay it inside laminating paper and then choose the leaves and flowers they wanted to add (FYI—all leaves and flowers we used were found on the ground). When they were done I closed the laminating paper and ran it through the laminator. Then they cut it and added the twine hanger.
This is a fun and easy activity for littles to do! Can’t wait to see everyone else’s activities today! 🎄
Workout 1 done!! Totally not feeling it today..I woke up at 5:30 and yet still at 10:30 hadn’t done my workout. I was hungry already, my kids have been fighting all week because we are working on cleaning and organizing their room and they do not want to do it, I had to separate them and I was interrupted a million times. You think you have excuses? As a mom of 5,who homeschools so my kids are always with me, I have a million other things I could be doing. I just don’t let those excuses dominate me..I make myself a priority and I get it done. No matter how many times I have to press pause to teach peaceful conflict resolution.😒😁
“Replace excuses with effort!”
The infamous birthday tree was set up a few days before we decorated for Christmas. This year we surprised him with a “Cut the Rope” theme. I honestly thought it was going to be Angry Birds and had everything prepared 3 months ago but he recently got into playing Cut the Rope so it’s now the latest obsession and it changed “the plan”.🙄🤪 Oh... which reminds me... I never did reveal what those pumpkins we were putting together were. In case you’re still dying to know (and haven’t already guessed) they were Angry Birds.🐤Started them in September and shamelessly finished them the week of Thanksgiving. Had two casualties through the process though. Bomb and one of the pigs caught leprosy and fell apart.🤷🏻♀️ Oh well... glad the others survived.😝 #momsonaroll
I guess this applies equally to my other “selves” ... 🤔
Have you seen The Grinch, yet? It’s adorable. It really is a great version of the book. We’ve seen in twice in the theatre and I’d bet we see it again before it leaves. Want to turn it into a lesson? Read the book first then have a conversation about similarities and differences. You could be fancy and do a Venn diagram, but I’ve always found honest conversations in the car to be just as effective. Boom. You just turned a Christmas activity into a Language Arts lesson. But you already knew that. Smarty pants. 😎

A Story of Suspense about a
young girl, her family and a
perplexed king who must trust
God to deliver the nation of
Judah from a large army that
has come to destroy them. Not
only that, they must stand
against their enemy without
any weapons, only the praise on
their lips. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/World-Turned-Upside-Down-Jehoshaphat-ebook/dp/B074WJFFNX/ref=sr_1_19
I honestly feel like this can apply in so many aspects of our lives! That no matter what phase you are in or what hardship you are going through, if you’re patient over time you’ll come out stronger 👏🏻
Having 3 kids 4 and under is exhausting and challenging to say the least. I’m constantly having to take care of someone or something but the thing is, and I know it’s cliche to say, they grow up so fast. Soon I won’t have anyone to take care of, and I’ll have excess time that I won’t even know what to do with 🙈
So I remind myself that this phase of my life won’t last, whether it be good or bad. That inevitably time will pass and so will what I’m going through. Any hardship or challenge become a tiny memory in my overcrowded brain that no longer functions like it use to lol mommy brain is real guys !! 🧠 It’s up to us to be patient with whatever it is we are going through and know that with time it’ll pass and get better.
Mommas Little Man needed to snuggle last night 💙
We have had a Really Busy week & the rest of the week is just as busy with work, daycare, evening activities he needed an evening with his mom💚
So we snuggled up on the couch and he fell asleep on me and I left him there until we went to bed💛
These moments aren't going to last forever🧡
When they bring the snow to our local children’s museum...you know it’s on like donkey kong! But it’s all fun and games til one of my littles gets hit in the throat with a rock hard snow ball. OUCH! But...let me tell you, the rest of the night was a hit! Sensory bins,life sized operation game, singing and dancing and the best part? ALPACAS! Yup..it was a #homeschoolmom
dream come true! On to the next adventure! What is your favorite place to take your kids for play/educational time? #homeschooler #homeschool #homeschoolroom #homeschooler #homeschoolblog #homeschoolmum #preschoolathome
Welcome to our story...our adventures and our first year of homeschooling. I started this page not only to capture memories of our day to day adventures but also to learn and grow as a mom,friend and above all else...a teacher. TEACHER is a word I never thought I would use to describe myself...EVER! But slowly, I am learning to accept and fully love my new role in life. And what a role it is! I love homeschooling...I have learned more in the last few months teaching my girls then I have in the last 5 years of #adulting
. By no means am I saying that homeschooling is easy... cause let’s be real for a sec, it’s not! But it is rewarding. And on those crazy days when my kids are being extra crunchie and I’m at my wits end, I would like to come back to this page and look over all the memories we have made together BECAUSE we homeschool. So let’s learn,grow and teacher together. Share ideas and become partners in this homeschooling crazy life we have. It’s Homeschooling or bust friends and I’m looking forward to sharing this journey together! #homeschooler #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #homeschoolblog #homeschoolroom #preschoolathome

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen...
This blue sherpa cardi is beyond good. Who scored one during our preorder? 🙋
I made a script so my mom can be one of the voices for my character and all she did was correct my spelling🤦🏾♀️!!!
