💁🏻♀️ Girl let me tell you...Frustration hits us all...the inability to change or achieve something. Maybe it’s the desire for more clients, maybe we have writers block, or we just can’t figure out how to create a dang website...what are your current business frustrations?
All I want for Christmas is... A room filled with laughter, stories, crafting, my kiddos, and a countdown ribbon to #wildandfreefrisco
. 🎄🌲🎄 And maybe a few dozen cookies + books. 🤷🏻♀️😂💛
🎀 Fact: I never leave home without my note pad.
You never know when inspiration may hit.
Take fearless action ladies, do not be afraid of failure. Embrace it, learn from it, and remember you’re just one step closer to reaching your dreams.

It’s beginning to FEEL a lot like Christmas. Lord knows it doesn’t Look it. ❄️ Man, there is something about a white a Christmas that I love so much. & I got to experience that with Lael’s family. Here in North Carolina the sun still shines half the time. The temps can still drop at night so you don’t get any of the magic but just a touch of cold to make you need to bundle up & snuggle. Just enough frost so you don’t forget it’s December & enough rain to create a bunch of mud. Ahh ❄️ I’m still hoping it snows this year but I have a feeling we’re going to have to dig deep for that good white magic snow Christmas morning feeling. & We’re traveling to Charleston for a week over Christmas and we’re planning lots of activities. Christmas in general is going to look a lot different for us this year && we’ll have to update you with how we like the change of pace. ❄️ Is it starting to look like Christmas where you are or are you going to just have to feel it with us this year? Are you traveling or staying put? Share with me how you get into the Christmas spirit!
For the first time since being in OK, I got away for a bit by myself. When you homeschool and run a business from home, it’s so important to set aside some time for you. To journal, to pray, to dream, to plan, to drink your coffee leisurely.. to actually WERK. Cause we all know how the kids don’t talk to you all day and play by themselves until the second you decide to sit, get stuff done and then you’re the only person in the world they want to be next to or need something from.
This time is going to be even more precious since I won’t be getting out of the house and doing hair a few days a week.
I had coffee with a new friend who leads the local @classical_conversations
group close by. We got all set and I was going to get some stuff DONE... until I got all the way there and realized I left my computer at home. Typical mom stuff. But the time I had this morning was cherished and appreciated! Don’t forget about your sanity too, friend!
We made some yummy fruit ice blocks yesterday!
It’s been so warm here in Brisbane so yesterday we made some delicious fruit ice blocks with our fresh fruits from @aldiaustralia
Lilly has a cows milk allergy so it can sometimes be tough finding her yummy treats for hot days, so I was really grateful to find some almond milk at Aldi which we used as a base for our ice blocks.
The kids helped me to cut up all the fruits and mix them up in the blender with some almond milk. We made a few different flavours but they looooved the banana and raspberry ice blocks the best!
What have you been doing to stay cool in this crazy hot weather?! ☀️
I think all entrepreneurs love coffee! ❤️ Like if you agree 😂
Who remembers this maths set? Purchased this from amazon, and I can’t express how happy I was to see this ‘old school’ set(!) Recently we’ve slowly moved on from general angles (acute, right and obtuse) to measuring angles. When it came to deciding which maths set to buy, I stuck with what I knew and bought this set...feels like a nice walk down maths memory lane!! #homeschoolingmama #homeeducationuk #homeed #homeeducationlookslikethis #homeschool
I think it's crazy that they want to get rid of this song!
But Brr it's cold outside!❄
South Texas Gal here living on the Coast. 🏝
Looking forward to reading where everyone is from. 🖤💕
Red Earth field trip with the kids! They got to learn about many different Native American tribes that reside in Oklahoma! 😍
They were able to make ornaments as well. Weston got to decorate his own little teepee! Zoei made a cute little dreamcatcher! .
Then the kids took a picture with the Absentee Shawnee tribe tree since their dad is part absentee Shawnee! ❤️
12 day's until Christmas!🎄🎁🎀
I just had to post again this morning. I sat staring at this picture and couldn’t help myself. 🐻This child loves his bear, his paci, his blankie, & his “choo choo boo”. I swear we can’t leave the house without carrying around all his baggage.🐻My other two were not like this! No matter how hard I tried they would not attach to anything except their pacifiers which we had to wean off of eventually. Which is a shame! 🐻Doesn’t each child need that one memorable item their child hood gave them? Mine was a stuffed polar bear my parents gave me when we went to sea world. & before that a pink bear that rattled when you shook it. Oh and of course my pink baby blankie. && I love seeing pictures of my baby self with them. 🐻What do you remember from your child hood that you still keep? Or is it your child now that attaches to all the things?

Confession: We are taking it pretty easy this summer when it comes to “school” stuff! However, I’ve also taken it easy when it comes to housework and chores!
I took time to enjoy every moment of this weekend! I didn’t think about dishes, laundry or toys all over the floor! However, Monday morning rolled around fast and I had to face reality and do the dishes finally (aka load the dishwasher)
I set up this quick morning activity to keep little man close by but busy. (Have you ever left a toddler in the next room? It’s amazing what they are capable of in such a short time 😂) So this is a easy way to keep him close by, engaged, learning and off my ankles!
I traced shape magnets onto bright paper! He sat naming and matching shapes just long enough for me to clean up the kitchen and finish my coffee! ☕️ That’s a winning activity in my book! 👍🏼 Repost by @missnicoleathome

What’s your favorite part of the day? ☀️I’m thinking these days my favorite part of the day is the morning even though I’m a night owl. I say morning because it’s when one of my kids, whoever wakes up first, gets to crawl in bed with me & we get to have alone time && I have nothing else to do in the world in that moment except just to cuddle. ☀️ Before all the stresses of the day hit me. Before the long to do list that never gets done is screaming at me. Before a meal needs to be made. Before everyone wakes up to argue... Just cuddling in bed with one of my babies...shhh... just for a few more minutes please. ☀️

Hey friend! Yup, I’m still here. Among the boxes, the styrofoam, the loooong drives to get ANYWHERE, the small spaces and the purging of even more stuff.. I’m here.
Moving is hard. We haven’t even had time for certain things to settle in - like how we moved 5 hours away from all we’ve ever known. We’ve had to add storage higher up in closets, rearrange things 200 times, get rid of even MORE stuff (not sad) and buy new beds that take up less space. Time is flying by and before we know it, homeschooling will have to be picked back up.
Here’s to you, friend, who is surviving all the crazy, all the change and adventure along with me!
Day 12. Because I don't have an ugly sweater. I took a picture of this one! For the photo challenge!
The other day I mentioned to someone that my husband works from home and that I homeschool. I definitely got a wide eyed look along with a, “Don’t you ever get sick of each other?” I get that question a lot. 🤷♀️ No, I don’t get sick of them. I’m a stage five clinger. I don’t even try to hide it. I’m nuts, I know. 🤪 I feel so blessed to have this family. So blessed that I don’t want to miss a minute of it. 💛
Hot cocoa night with the family. Any other Polar Express fans out there? Our little ones are pretty into the hot chocolate part of the book and the movie. Of course whipped cream, peppermint marshmallows and crushed candy canes make it that much better. I love this time of year!!!
A little coffee before I start taking pics for my giveaway post being posted in a few hours...stay tuned...I know you will love it! 🖤💕
I’m feeling extra festive after attending The Nutcracker at The Fox with the kiddos. It was so sweet seeing all of the students and homeschooling families learning about ballet production and a glimpse of behind the scenes magic! #homeschoolingmama #thenutcracker
Also feeling thankful that rallying the four of them downtown by myself went well. They were great listeners, even in a huge crowd.
Hey, friends. 👋🏼 •
It’s been a minute since I’ve hopped in front of the camera. I’m Ashley, homeschooling Mama of four, wife of 13 years, living in a little town by the water in San Diego. 🐚 •
Saltwater Schoolhouse is a diary of our days, a scrapbook of our adventures, a glimpse into our studies and travels and lifestyle— but it is also a place where such sweet community has been fostered. After 5 years of educating my kids at home, I’ve developed such a heart for coming alongside other Mamas on this journey... I’m so grateful for each one of you that has reached out to share your dreams of educating your kiddos at home 💕 or with questions about curriculum, homeschooling with babies, nature groups or building community. My heart is truly that— to be a resource, an encouragement and friend. •
I have some dreams moving into the new year of hosting some events 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 and I’m hopeful I can many of you in person. 💕 I’ll also be at Wild & Free in February!! 💃🏼 •
I figured I’d open up the comments to a little Q&A and also a place to introduce yourself — and make sure to read through the comments and meet some new friends! •
Happy Wednesday, friends! So glad you’re here. 🌴 •

Talking about #largefamilylife
and being a #momofmany
in my Stories today! This morning this is part of what that looked like: while the eight-year-old did his language arts at the kitchen table and the five-year-old ran around in a dress-up dress, I was doing a reading lesson with the seven-year-old with the clingy, sick two-year-old on my back while attempting to nurse the almost-six-month-old. It can be pretty chaotic most days and right now I'm pretty desperate for a break, but deep down I know I wouldn't trade it for the world!
I just love that I was able to get that 20 minute workout done before co-op today. I think this was my favorite move.
Now I can just relax while the girls have a quiet rest/naptime. Who knows, maybe I will fall asleep too 😜
How is your Wednesday going?
Do you frequent the bookstore with your kiddos? We are here at least 2x a week...it’s an adventure every time. #welovebooks
