Caught on camera: 📸 A hug from mom healing all wounds! 💜💜💜
Who is this kid?! 😢😢😭 She is growing way too fast. It is true what they say, no matter how big they get you will always see them as your baby. ❤️#missingmybaby #biggirlnow #mybeautifulprincess #theygrowtoofast #princessAmma #firstborn #momlife #blackhomeschoolers #homeschoolingfamily
The girls’ finished masterpieces! They were so proud of these and are super excited to see them with flowers growing soon. 😍 #SpringIsComing #EasterFun #EasterCrafts
Story time with the big sister! || Ce livre a vraiment une très bonne morale, nous avons pu discuter sur l’importance de focuser sur le positif dans nos vie au lieu de regarder que le négatif. Je le recommande! Bonne lecture! 💫 Le titre du livre: le manchot marabout.
. Best $5 ever spent. Found this super fun train #puzzle at our local #fiveandbelowstore It has #matching #numberrecognition #counting #shapes #colors and #finemotorskills all in one very large 5 foot long puzzle.
Apparently being able to laminate is an acquired skill. Maybe I’m not cut out for this homeschooling gig! 🤨 #quitwhileimahead ? #imnewtothis
. Review!! NEW HEADPHONES!! . I think we finally hit the jackpot with his new headphones!! These are super light and they don't squish his head like the others. . . We opted for wireless headphones this time instead of just noise canceling ones because they seem to help him want to wear them more. . . Riwbox WT-7S Bluetooth Headphones, LED Light Up Wireless Foldable Stereo Headset with Microphone and Volume Control for PC/ iPhone/ TV/ iPad (Blue) PURCHASED ON AMAZON for only $27.98 . . We have zero cons for these as of now. We've been using them for about a week and love them. . So many Pros!!!! •Lightweight •soft cushioned ear muffs •controls on the side make it easy to manage (fast forward, rewind, play, pause and stop) perfect for movies and music •wireless with a long battery life and pairs very easily to most devices with voice prompting (tells you when they are on, connected and paired) •no cords to handle, tangle or chew •bonus is they can be wired if need be and the wire has a microphone attached to answer phone calls (for those who may use these with the phones) •good range (we had these on Joshua as he was outside and his tablet was in the house and no problems hearing his music •easy to pack away as they fold for quick storage •adjustable so they will grow with him. •they cone with a USB Charge cable •lights on the side blink and dance to the beats and sound letting you know they are working and looks super cute.
. Happy St Patrick's Day!!
Family Saturday, getting seeds started indoors. #growfood #unschoollife
At @abbeyyouthfest with a small group from our parish and I’m loving all the catholic publishers that are here! ❤️. My favorite being @pauline_publishing so far because I’m already eyeing things for next school year. #homeschoolingfamily #catholichomeschoolmom
This #homeschoolingfamily loves to read. #calvinandhobbes is always funny, but reading one you haven't read before will bust a gut!🤣😂 . . #libraryday #dadof6 #lovemykids #readingisfun
Seasonal Support 🌸🌳🐝👀🌷 The sneezes, the itchy & watery eyes, the runny noses and congestion. We're already swinging into Spring in SC and have been using this trio to help relieve symptoms so we can enjoy our time outdoors! Lemon 🍋 is a phenominal cleanser. Lavender 🌱 is a natural antihistamine, and decreases inflammatory response. Peppermint 🌿 supports open airways. Diffuse: four drops of each Roller blend (10ml): 10 drops each, fill with FCO, apply to feet, spine, pulse points, behind ears, neck or on chest. Internally: 2-3 drops each in a veggie cap dōTERRA made it simple also by creating TriEase Softgels which contain equal parts of lemon, lavender and peppermint to take internally for seasonal support. Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? Need a little support? New to essential oils? Send me a message; I'd love to send you a sample! 🌱💌
. Watch what you say …I just might do it! . Have you ever met someone who took everything you said literally? That's how some people with ASD are. THAT'S HOW JOSHUA IS!! . He has a Speech/Language disorder disorder and doesn't always understand what's being said to him. Sometimes it ends pretty comically. . Here's some examples: . Once i told his sister to "get on the ball and get her school work done".…Joshua got upset because she wasn't on his big exercise ball. . I also say I have to "bite my tongue" A LOT ……to which Joshua always asks to see my tongue or if it is bleeding or he gets upset thinking I hurt myself cause I bit my tongue. . We used to have a "Take 5/take a breather"spot (a square on the floor away from everything made of blue painters tape for easier removal) ……when I would say "get in the blue square for a take 5" …it took him a while to realize his entire body didn't have to be inside the square. So if his toes went over the tape he would flip out. . Also, if you say you are going to do something, bring something or take him somewhere …you'd dang sure better live up to it because he will remember it and let you know every time he sees you.

You might be a dance mom when you spend YOUR birthday at HER convention!! But it was all worth it for @savannahmontana_ to be "called out" amongst the larger group of performers. @regrann * * * * #homeschooling #homeschoolingfamily #blackhomeschool365 #brownhomeschool365 #homeschoolmom #dancemom #homeschoolers #homeeducation #homeschooled #homeschoolrocks #homeeducator #homeschoolblogger #nuvo2018 #nuvohouston2018

Happy Pizza Friday! 🍕🍕 I love my little chefs helping in the kitchen! 👨🏼‍🍳👨🏼‍🍳 We’re blessed to have (homeschooling!!) cousins just a mile away to have pizza parties with!
Our son is an avid field guide collector...so when the library has a sale we always take a peek! Daughter and I grabbed these for him today!
Spring where are you?? She wants to ride her #maximini , but with the snow it’s a little hard....so she ride it in my kitchen....🤔🤷‍♀️🌿|| Printemps où est tu? Elle veut faire un tour de trottinette, mais avec toute cette neige c’est pas trop évident...alors elle fait des tours dans ma cuisine... #whynot

In our homeschool we are currently studying Africa for world history and geography. I shared this pic a while back on my story... Instead of using our workbook to fill in the answers, we decided to make our own travel journal. My 9 year old son is in charge of making his interesting & engaging. I’ll do this eventually with my daughter too when she’s around his age. This helps to prolong the life of our workbooks as well so more than one student can use it.💙 . . . . . #homeschoolmom #homeschoolingfamily #momblog #sewingblog #workathomemom #apologia #worldhistory #momof3 #homeschooling #motherhood #4thgrade #traveljournal #geography #aroundtheworldin180days

When one's family is sick she makes chicken soup. There is something about chicken soup (100% from scratch) that makes a body feel better. Nourishment for the soul and body. #northernontarioliving #largefamilylife #homeschoolingfamily #winter2017 #soupforthesoul

Her first math test! She was so happy to do a test just like her big sister! #firtsgrade #homeschoolers || Son premier examen de math!! Elle est tellement contente d’avoir un examen comme sa grande sœur!! #ecolealamaison
. Joshua sang happy birthday to his sister literally every 30 min or so yesterday. Each time he was super excited as if it was the first time He sang it for her. He also thought it was his birthday too. Something he didn't understand. We just kept telling him that it was Sissy's birthday and his would come again soon. (it never clicked for him tho) it's like when it snowed last week. The trees looked beautiful covered in snow… but to Joshua, it signaled Christmas and he insisted that Santa was going to bring him a new train. . Sometimes it can be difficult for those with ASD to understand time, to understand when things are supposed happen. Things as simple as "later, tomorrow, or even a certain day…Friday" none of that makes any sense for Joshua. He literally lives in the moment. Which isn't always manageable because let's face it. 90% of life is about waiting. . OT and ABA work with him on this. And while some days he may understand a little most days he does not.

A couple of days ago we spend some time in Johannesburg and visited an old time favorite. Gold Reef City is an amusement park in South Africa. Located on an old gold mine which closed in 1971, the park is themed around the gold rush that started in 1886 on the Witwatersrand. We took a guided tour 100m underground and learned all about gold mining. The amusement park was great fun too and the kiddos especially loved the water rides!
That’s so cute 😍 #sibling #sisterslove
It’s “World Sleep Day”, and let me tell you, I woke up this morning from a wonderful night’s rest! . My family & I use a rotation of essential oils each evening as part of our bedtime routines. . Diffusing a sweet aroma is soooo calming that we can wind down & fall asleep with ease. . There are many essential oils to choose from, but our family favorites include Lavender, Stress Away, Peace & Calming, Cedarwood, & SleepyIze(a blend with Valerian essential oil). . How about you? What are your go-to oils to encourage rest & relaxation in your home? . #younglivingeo #worldsleepday #sweetdreams

Moon! Astronomy book. Today boys were learning about moon and then made their own on a page of their book. They also colored the other side of the page with the phases of moon and observed them with the help of a ball and a lamp. . . Луна! Книжка по астрономии.

. A MUST READ IF YOU HAVE AN AUTISM SIBLING!! . REPOSTED!!! from @my_life_as_an_autismsibling using @RepostRegramApp - . "Hello everyone✋ Thank you for all your wonderful birthday wishes I really appreciate them. But this post is about how I think every special needs sibling needs to read Wonder. I was recently asked to give some advice for another autism sibling. I suggested Wonder. The book is about a boy with a facial deformitiy and how his first year of middle school is his first time ever going to school other than at home (homeschooled). But another major part of the book is about Via his older sister. Her parents are always so focused on her brother (because of his disability) that she always does everything by herself. She says that her family is the universe Auggie (wonder) is the sun and her dad, mom, and her are the planets that orbit around him. I related to Via so much in my own way that I cried at some spots. This is a book definitely recommended by a special needs sibling 💖💖💖"

Date night 💖 We don't go out every week, just once a month for sure. But for me evenings after kids are in bed I think of as date night every night! But this one night a month we go out away from the crazy fun of home and remember why we are together after all these years. ❤️
THE DAY AND THE #CREEKLIFE OF OUR HOMESCHOOLING FAMILY: My little navigator! She most often doesn't look behind her but ahead. Hair a mess and a style all her own; she is my free spirit. She knows where she is going and walks in confidence. (I want to be just like her) This new (homeschool) life of ours has proven to be adventurous at times. Learning doesn't always happen through books but in conversations; sometimes in the most unexpected places such as pulling vines in the back yard. We are so blessed to have family who have immersed themselves in their love of history, gardening, and other amazing life experiences. THIS is what we call school! It's not always glamorous or easy but IT'S SO WORTH IT! . . . #creekkids #creeklife #homeschoolingfamily #homeschoollife #learningthroughlife #unschooling
