<노엘이의 홈스쿨링 혹 교육 이야기_만4살> 나에겐 아이가 문자에 대해 궁금해 하기 전에, 문자 교육을 시키지 않겠다는 생각이 있었다. 이유는, 문자를 배우기 이전에 상황을 더욱 살필 수 있는 능력이 있길 원해서였다. 그리고 문자를 궁금해하기 시작하거나, 아이가 문자를 배울 때가 되었다고 여겨지면 차근차근히 가르치면 된다는 생각이었다. 그래서 노엘이는 만 4살이 될 때까지 글자나 숫자를 가르친 적이 없었다. 물론 간간히 궁금해하는 알파벳이나 한글, 숫자가 있으면 알려주었지만 그 궁금증은 오래가지 않았고 아이가 책을 볼때 글을 하나도 몰랐지만 스스로 그림을 탐독하며 읽거나 나에게 이야기를 읽어달라고 했다.(글자를 몰라도 책을 즐겁게 보는 아이에게 굳이 글자를 알려줄 필요를 느끼지 못했다) 나는 이야기를 읽어주기도 했고, 옛날에 오디오테이프로 이야기를 들었던 때처럼 아이에게 로보카폴리나 엄마까투리 같은 공동체생활에 관한 교육적이라 판단되는 이야기들을 소리로만 들려주기도 했다. (물론 보여주기도 했다.만 3세가 되기 전엔 거의 본적이 없고, 3세 이후에 로보카폴리 10분짜리를 3개 보여줬다) 아이는 영어에 자연스레 궁금증이 많아지면서, 영어로 된 티비쇼를 보여달라고 요구하여 nickjr.com에서 pawpatrols나 bubbleguppies, blaze와 같은 티비쇼를 하루에 40분씩 보여주기 시작했다. (지금은 아침에 40분, 저녁에 40분 본인이 원하는 티비쇼를 보여준다. 영어든, 한국어든 부모가 허락한 티비쇼는 한번에 30-40분 볼 수 있다) 난 싱글일 때부터 나중에 가정을 이뤄서 아이가 생기면 홈스쿨링을 하고 싶다는 생각이 있었다. 하지만 미국에서 첫 아이를 키우는데 홈스쿨링으로만 진행하기엔 무리인 부분이 있었으니 바로 영어와 관계였다. 아이는 영어로 처음만난 친구들과 대화하고 싶어하는데, 아이의 영어를 친구들이 알아듣지 못할수 밖에 없었다. 남편과 나는 긴 상의 끝에 9월부터 prek4로 아이를 학교에 보내기로 했다. 학교는 전일 보낼 수 있는 공립, 혹은 차터스쿨, 주3일 사립, 주2일 사립이 있었는데 차터스쿨과 사립기관 2곳을 방문 후, 주 2일 사립기관에 보내기로 했다.(private school아닌 교회에서 운영하는 learning center) 그리고 만 4세가 된 노엘이에게 학교 가기 전에 알파벳과 1-10까지 기본적인 숫자는 가르키기 시작했다. 자기 이름이라도 쓰고, 기본적인 숫자는 알아보거나/읽거나/쓸줄 알아야 공동체 생활에서 스스로 편하게 느끼고 선생님도 수업을 진행하는데 편할거라고 생각해서였다. 이렇게 5월부터 8월말까지 노엘이는 계획대로 알파벳과 숫자1-10까지를 배워서 자기의 이름을 쓰고, 알파벳을 읽을 줄 알고 쓸 줄 알며, 파닉스도 했고, 숫자를 보고 읽고 쓸 줄 알게 되었다. 더불어 미술 수업도 했다. 사용한 교재는 달러트리에서 산 알파벳쓰기 책, 숫자쓰기 책, 그리고 bju press의 Footsteps for Fours이다. 지금 노엘이는 사립기관에 화,목, 집에서 월,수,금(토) 홈스쿨링을 함께 하고 있다. 생각만했던 홈스쿨링을 실제로 해보니 배움을 통해 아이가 성장할 모습이 기대가 되고, 즐겁다. (그리고 생각해보면 내가 학교 가기 전에 6살 7살 일때 엄마와 색종이를 오리고 붙이고, 받아쓰기 연습하고 했던 기억이 난다. 지금처럼 기관이 많기 전 혹은 기관에 다니더래도 내가 어릴 적 그 시절엔 어느 정도 이런 홈스쿨링은 다 했던 것 같다. 아직은 생각한대로 진행되는 어렵지 않은 홈스쿨링이다.) #홈스쿨링 #알파벳떼기 #숫자배우기 #학교갈준비 #학교랑홈쿨링 #homeschooling #homeschoolingmom #homeschoolingprek4 #raisingchristiankids #bjupress #footstepsforfours #dollartreebooks
Miss 3 and I went on a flower search in the backyard collecting different leaves and flowers ready for some art activities this afternoon. 🌷🌺🌿
I am prepping for our Peaceful Preschool homeschool year and reading over the guide book for parents and I came across this quote : “Often our kids are misbehaving because we are distracted. We only have one shot at raising our children and the early years are over quickly. Look your kids in the eyes.” ...And man did that hit me.👏🏻👏🏻 We so often forget that our children grow quickly when the days seem to drag on... but I will be damned if I let anything get in the way and distract me from the most important, incredible and fleeting time that I get with my children while they’re babies. ❤️ Anyone else need this reminder?? 📷 pic cred is not mine.

My 4 yo son is enjoying painting on his own way... I love to witness those little hands grow and grow more. Its been a while since the held the brush for the first time... #homeschoolingmom #homeschoolingatoddler #lifeschooling #childledlearningthroughplay #childhoodunplugged #montessoriathome #homeschooling #homeschoolingrocks #workingmom #homeschoolingperks #weekendwithchlorts #chlorts #4yroldtoddler
Friday night... friends were seen, races were races, and hugs were given! It’s been way too long since this groove has been experienced and I’m thankful! ⠀⠀ Thankful for the friendship of everyone, for the tribe that watches out for my kids, for the volunteers that show up, for the meaningful conversations (that teach me something new) and the love everyone has for BMX! ⠀⠀ We may all be cheering on our own children in the moment but off the track, we are family! ⠀⠀ State Finals are tomorrow, so send the kids all the positive vibes, prayers, magical mojo you have for a fun, upright and successful day!! 🚲 ⠀⠀ I hope you enjoyed your Friday night as much as we did and if your compelled tell me what you were up too?!? . . . #bmxfamily #striderrider #striderkids #henryandclaire #freerangechildren #freerangechickens #chesapeakebmx
#herewegoagain 🐛 I keep thinking its done...but it’s not. We had a bunch (a dozen or so) of babies that we farmed out this past week and we still have 5. First picture shows the chrysalis on the plant (most have made them on ceiling of the mesh laundry basket) toward the bottom, and the three larger caterpillars. #second picture is just a different angle that shows the small one as well. I think I took these pictures yesterday and two more have “gone into chrysalis”. (Is that correct from a scientific &/or grammatical aspect?😂 Does anyone care -? Or even read this far down the post? Give me a 😂😂😂 if so 😉 Have a great weekend! . . . . . #nature #caterpillarfarmers #butterflyfarmers #donttellthehoa #wearentzonedforfarming #thanksmom #itwasheridea #homeachooling #science #andmaybegrammar #thisisalotofwork #alsoalotofmilkweed #thosethingseataton #likeallmykids #boymom #homeschoolingmom #sahm #wahm #exhaustedmom #chrysalis #caterpillars #monarchbutterfly #beengoingliveonfbwhenwerelease #creation #amazingcreation #thankful
Barely #flashbackfriday to our first weeks of homeschooling almost three years ago. This image shows the first time I realized “Oh, you want to just randomnly have a snack and play with blocks outside between lessons? Why not? We homeschool!”. . Why we decided to homeschool and continue to do so is one of my absolute favorite things to talk about, but let’s just say, once we felt sure it was the right choice, I dove right in, all systems go. Though I’m so glad we did not put off taking our girls out of private school mid school year, there are things I would’ve done differently to make our first homeschool months less bumpy. Even with all the research, countless articles and videos watched, I still didn’t fully comprehend just how different, flexible and just plain freeing, homeschool could be. I knew we would have more time and could make it our own, but I didn’t grasp the concept of transitioning our mindset out of “regular” school. So, although we talked at length about the why, how, what of homeschooling before we strarted, I wasn’t aware of how important it would be to take a break to transition and get our own rhythm formally learning at home. I just had our curriculum materials, did a couple of weeks of trial run homeschool and, once it was confirmed it was what we wanted to do, we informed the school and just continued plugging along with our homeschool schedule (which, of course overzealous homeschool newbie, wasn’t too realistic). . I’m convinced that, had I known we needed to take a break in between to change our mindset and eased into it, there would’ve been a smaller learning curve for creating our own dynamic and getting to know what we each needed for it to work more fluidly. I would’ve realized a lot sooner “Hey, we can make learning together whatever we need and want it to be!”. But some things we just learn as we go along and should never stop re-learning. . If you took your kids out of “regular” school to homeschool, did you take some time to transition and de-school? What rookie mistakes do you wish you could’ve avoided?

The picture below 👇 represents items I've purchased and places I've spent my money at only because someone first told me about it...guys, that's NETWORK MARKETING!!💬 I love when my friends recommend things--I'm totally loving❤ our #wonderboom !!🎶 BUT the sad thing 😞 about everything below, none of my friends benefited from their faithful recommendation and MY decision to purchase. Isn't that sad?😪 .. How awesome if Aldi gave "Aldi cash" to whoever raved about their store to their friends and they became new customers or Amazon offered % off your bill for recommending a product to a friend and they purchase it. Amazing!!🎉 You'd be foolish NOT to. .. "Network marketing" often rubs people the wrong way. I get it. They have preconceived ideas of what it is--a pyramid/get rich quick scheme--just like a lot of people have preconceived ideas of what homeschoolers are--unsocialized, long hair, long skirt wearing, socially awkward kind of people😂 I can laugh because I am one 😉 Not all companies do network marketing the way it should be done, but not my company. I'm so grateful🙌 my company is different in how they treat and compensate their people and how they formulate and create their products #winwin #igetpaidrealmoney .. #friendsshare #getpaidforit #realmoney #networkmarketer #homeschoolingmom #teachermom #pastorswife #homesteading #baker #cook #dowhatyoulove #getpaid #livewell #feelwell #lovewell #jantzentures
Well I have had this decent size cork board forever now and never could decide what to do with it and how to use it with school. Until now it mainly just held art work and tickets to different things we were gonna do. So today I covered it in Halloween paper and found different things for October. Spelling words, bat life cycle, halloween poem that will change every week, skeleton with labeled bones, and a thesaurus page for spooky words for creative writing! Still working on the board. But I like it so far! #homeschoolingmom #unschoolingmom #unschoolers #homeschoolers #homeschooling #homeschooled
Zoo field trip today with my favorite tiny humans. 🦒🦍 I’m a planner, so these spur of the moment all day trips aren’t usually my jam. But I’m really loving that I’m learning to be more flexible and live in the moment.💗 Days like today I’m so full of gratitude for this blessed life I’m living.😊
So proud of my husband and so thankful for this opportunity that the Lord has given him. 🏠When we moved to Texas 3 months ago, We had no idea what God would use to help provide, or what the next step for Chad world be. He became a project manager for Striker Roofing and Remodeling 2 months ago. This was one of the bathrooms they finished last month 😍
Who can relate to that midnight hustle?! 😅 Thank you @sumatokizzu for sharing!💕 🌿Repost: Another close-to-midnight prep for tomorrow's learning activities for the kids.

It’s Friday!!! And y’all I got to sit in the carpool line by myself today! Gotta savor that precious alone time whenever and wherever we can, right mamas? 😆 ⠀⠀ Anyway, we have lots of new friends that joined us this week and I just want to say welcome!! I’m so glad you’re here 👋🏻❤️ ⠀⠀ A little about me: ⠀⠀ I’m a southern girl who lives in the Boston area with my hubby and three children. For about ten years I lived at the mercy of two autoimmune diseases and then my oldest son got one as well. It was at that point I decided to take our family’s health and wellness in a new direction and the positive results are rolling in! ⠀⠀ I LOVE to talk all things family, special needs, and living YOUR best life. I’m a positive person who also keeps it real. You’ll see our journey unfold - the ups and the downs - as it happens. No sugarcoating, but no wallowing either. ⠀⠀ I just started homeschooling my oldest this year and am loving it so far! If you are a #homeschoolingmom I welcome all your tips and insights! ⠀⠀ Lastly, I think empathy rocks and I want to see more of it in the world - so much so that I wrote my thesis on it! My goal is for you to feel at home here. So, show up exactly as you are ❤️ ⠀⠀ Now, tell me about you! What makes you light up from the inside out, friend? And do you have little ones, teens, or grown babes that have left the nest? ⠀⠀ #mom #motherhood #letthembelittle #childhoodunplugged #specialneeds #specialneedsmom #autismmom #momof3 #homeschooling #charlottemason #wellness #naturalwellness #autoimmunedisease #crohnswarrior #celiac #pandasawareness
I’m finally coming back up for air after two days of a naaaasty cold! . Fever, sore throat, runny nose, headaches, the whole bit. . I’ve been under a ton of stress this month and I have been doing my best to take care of myself through it all, but the stress finally broke down my immune system enough for me to catch a bug. 😣 . Thanks to my oils and supplements though, I’m at about 85% today. I’ll take it! 🙌🏼 . I took my diy OnGuard softgels every 2hrs or so (check my highlights or leave a comment and I’ll DM you the recipe). As well as diffused Breathe and used my sleepy oils. And rested. . In the last 48hrs I’ve used: Frankincense, OnGuard, DDR Prime, Copaiba, Black Pepper, Breathe, Oregano, Marjoram, Serenity, Balance, OnGuard Throat drops, LLV, and Digestzen (my eating habits are outta whack with no appetite while I’m sick - so thankful for this oil!). . You guys. Having these oils when you need them is essential to success. This cold came outta nowhere. Nobody else in my family was sick, or has gotten sick (knock on wood). But I was ready and had what I needed and I’m so grateful. . These oils combined saved me from choking down fever reducers/pain relievers that are terrible for the liver, decongestants that are terrible for my heart, or even just plain ol’ Vick’s which is full of petroleum products 🤢. Not to mention time and money I might have spent going to get all that subpar stuff. . Time and time again, these oils save my booty. I have a special trip planned tomorrow and I’m sure I would have had to miss out if it wasn’t for the fact that I had nature’s medicine on my side. So thankful! . Who else is ready for some essential oil goodness in their homes?? We all have stuff come up unexpectedly. Let’s be ready for it!

My first mala. ⠀ ⠀ Did you know play is as important for adults as it is for kids? ⠀ ⠀ As we grow, and even when we are very young it would seem nowadays, the only play we value is competitive play. ⠀ ⠀ But we don’t just lose the desire for novelty, creation and simple play. We do however, dismiss it and shove it aside so often as we get older that we forget the enjoyment and fulfilment we get from playing.⠀ ⠀ For me it’s a total drag to get started, but once I do, the enjoyment is fulfilling and calming. I’ve been meaning to make myself some mala beads for some time. I’ve finally strung my 108 turquoise beads. I’m adding some lava stone to the tassel because you know I need my oils on this baby! 😀 ⠀ ⠀ I’ll post a pic when it’s done but this play thing- it’s better than meditation in many cases. So if thinking about sitting down for half an hour to “meditate” in the traditional sense makes you as anxious as it makes me, try getting some play in your day! ⠀ ⠀ So ironic I speak of my anxiety around meditating as I string my mala! Haha! As mala newb, does anyone know can you do say 27 chants and then come back later to do the rest? So you might complete 108 in the entire day? Would appreciate any mala tips! ❤️

.💕That’s a good question… 💕 : The short answer is that it depends on the laws in your state. HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association) can help with his for free through their website. On their website you want to pay attention to your states “in-laws” and your “out-laws.” : I call in-laws the things your state requires from you. You want to pay good attention to those. I call out-laws those things your state does NOT require from you. This is where your POWER lies! : For instance, an in-law might be a requirement that you teach all the subjects your local gov’t school teaches. If your state doesn’t say HOW you must teach, then you may consider that an out-law and welcome your online schools. There are some great free ones like Khan Academy — not to mention the numerous places you may find online to download free worksheets! : A word of caution... You may want to actually join HSLDA to make sure your path to your out-law powers remain uncluttered by any power stealers (unlawful constraints). : Enjoy the sweet journey of discovering the many many opportunities you have to make your homeschool program exciting and boundless! : : : : : All posts and comments from #askcrystallove are offered in the spirit of love and sisterhood only.

When is the last time you noticed the sunrise? I mean, really NOTICED it. Saw the beauty of it and just took a second to take it all in😌 . I don’t know about you, but life can get so busy and noisy, we forget to notice little things like that. . I know I’ve been guilty of that🙈 . But man, yesterday as we were taking the kids to school, the sunrise caught my attention and I just couldn’t look away. I took like 10 shots of it and this still didn’t capture the full effect... . It’s easy to miss things like this because of the noise of life. . We have to fight to quiet that noise. We’ve got to intentionally notice things like sunrises and our kids laughing and the way it warms your heart when your spouse brings you a cup of coffee. . Don’t get so busy, you forget to notice the small things💗
So so excited for my friends “The Raney’s” who are on their second trip to Hawaii for free! If anyone deserves it it’s these amazing God fearing people! Check out what Cassie said about it! “Just 3 years ago we were desperate to afford groceries for our family. Stuck living on government assistance and food stamps. It was a long season of scarcity that God gave a daily manna type of faith. . As we desperately sought to gain our health back we discovered God has so much more in store. He restored our physical and emotional health. He rose up streams in the desert. . I remember one night I watched a story of a family who looked a lot like ours that took a chance on the business and transformed their entire financial future. My heart quickened a bit and I felt God saying this was how He was going to provide for us. So I opened my heart and jumped in with great fear but more hope than I ever had before. I simply wanted to buy our own groceries. I didn’t dream of luxury cars or lavish trips because we just wanted to survive. When you are in survival mode you don’t think about vacations. 11 years of marriage and we had never had been on vacation. . Last year we brought the baby but this year to take our youngest children on a incredibly lavish, expenses paid trip to Hawaii... leaves me in tears. This gift is not lost on our family. #homeschoolingmom #mamaofmany #wfhmom #wfhm #hawaian #experiencenature #grateful 🙏
We haven’t seen daddy since this past Sunday. Reagan was so happy daddy could be home today to help with her school lessons! He has to leave again this Sunday for another 4 nights so we are soaking up as much time with him as we can! ❤️
What did we do before Washi tape?? It's a great addition to crafts, Sensorial works, organizing, and more. What do you like to do with Washi in your homeschool? . We call for it it often in our free monthly activity packs. . . . #washitapes #washitape #homeschoolingmom #homeschoolmama #homeschoolmoms #homeschooling #homeschoolfun #homeschoollife #homeschoolinglife #homeschoolingmama #homeschoolmom
Friday’s are for spelling and scripture tests 🤓 One of the nuggets of wisdom that stuck with me after reading #charlottemason ’s book was that tests are to see what the child knows well NOT what they don’t know 🍎 Test days do not feel scary and tense around here, and I love that! It’s helps me plan out what we are going to spend time learning next week. #homeschool #homeschoolingmom #charlottemason #cm #spelling #letters #sound #iew #reading #kindergarten #gradeschool #elementary #100 #thisishomeschool #thisishowwehomeschool #thisis5 #thisis7
Fridays are for fun! Today that means putting together a solar system puzzle, and watching a documentary on Jamestown. We will read Shel Silverstein for Poetry Tea (cocoa) Time, and build with Legos. Even though there is very little structured lessons today, there is still SO much learning. I love when we can find documentaries and movies that bring to life what we have been learning about! It really helps to solidify what we have been discussing.

My dad (Pa) is the best! He found us owl pellets to dissect. This kid loved it. He found a skull, a jaw with tiny teeth and shoulder socket. He kept saying he was finding fossils:) . . . . . #charlottemason #homeschooling #learnathome #charlottemasoneducation #learn #homeschooling #homeschoolingmom #homeschoollife #homeschoolmama #science #scientist #nature #exploringnature #naturestudy #momlife #childhoodunplugged
Birth Order: 1st Borns 👈 . First born kids are the CEOs, Leaders, Prime Ministers, and movers and shakers of the world. A disproportionately high # of former presidents were #firstborn .🚀🚀🚀 . They can fall into two loose categories: compliant (wanting eagerly to please you) and not so compliant (wanting eagerly to do what they want). Some, reserved and serious as they are quite mature for their age. Others, bold and take charge, depending on their #introvert #extrovert tendency.🌝☀️ . They value authority and hierarchy (since they're at the top 😂) and really want to please parents. They feel a strong sense of duty to do so. They often are Mini Parents to their #siblings which annoys the younger ones, but first borns couldn't care less because they want everyone to fall into line.💪💪 . They aim high, seeing their grown up parents as role models. They are well spoken and comfortable talking to adults, they often have friends of all ages. 👩‍👧‍👧 . Both shy and outgoing first borns are capable of so much as they take life seriously. They don't go very much with the flow because - more than other #birthorders they want to SET the flow. They aim very high and can tend towards ambition, excellence, and perfectionism💧🌊 . . . My darling compliant first born pictured here 💜 and thank you @beddysbeds for the gold polka dotted comforter! . #personality #personalitytypes #firstbornlove #enneagram #mbti #birthorder #momlife #homeschoolingmom #clickitupanotch #biggirlroom #momlifeisthebestlife
My FB memory from today. As true today as 6 years ago.❤️#giveyourselfaway #pathwaytojoy #1000gifts
Harmony is LOVING math! We decided to go with Teaching Textbooks, as I wrote in a previous post, after she tested into almost third grade in mathematics, so she has been working through their first level (called Three) online. I stay in the room with her while she listens to the video lecture explaining the new concept, and that way I am there in case she needs help. Mostly, I just re-read questions aloud for her, because she isn't at the point where she can read anything fluently yet. She did the second quiz yesterday, with absolutely no assistance, and only missed one question, so I think it's all right so far! #hereisourhomeschool
When you're a #homeschoolingmom who's favorite subjects 📚are math & science (with 2 sons👩‍👦‍👦 who love math) then your 3rd child👩‍👧 comes along and absolutely hates it...and you're patiently trying to get her to understand but your patience is running a bit low today after staying up too late😴 helping her with her science... You just may need a little extra support: 🙏Prayers✔️ ☀️Sunshine✔️ 💪Exercise ✔️ 🌿 extra #CBDoil ✔️ #stressrelief #nervoussystembalance
Current reads and a couple to be read for homeschool and for fun. We’ve got some portal fiction, historical fiction and a couple puzzle/game inspired fiction. 24/50 of my current reading goal. This lot will bring me up to 32/50. #bookstagram #booknerdsunite #currentreads #toberead #homeschoolingmom #readalouds #buildyourlibrary #buildyourlibrarycurriculum #familyreadingcrate
Being a mom is the most important job I’ll ever be given. There are days when I fall asleep with guilt because I ask myself “am I present enough?” Do they know they matter? Do they know how hard I work is for them? I don’t know! We could drive ourselves crazy with all the worrying and wondering I suppose. But what I know is this: my children know I love them. A lot. And we are here together enjoying ourselves on this tropical island paradise. And those memories.....they’re forever!!! ❤️❤️🌴🌴🌴 #family #theyaremyworld #homeschoolingmom #travelling #deepconversations #lovemykids #afamilythatvacationstogetherstaystogether #familygetaway #moralcompass

Self portrait, inspired by Julia Margaret Cameron. 🌿 Hello lovelies, I'm Karen. Maker of photographs. Writer of poetry. Reader of historical fiction. Wife to my best friend. Mama to three beauties I get to hug everyday & two little saints in heaven. I have a deep love of the Faith, a yearning for the unknown, and a craving for beauty. I am a storyteller. I am loyal to my tribe. Introverted. I have an autistic mind and a bleeding heart. My kids inherited my deep belly laugh. It's strange how alike we all sound when we laugh! I've had some sort of camera in hand since I was 11. I love bakeries and bookstores and thunderstorms. Lately I've been watching the @Mahogany Sessions on youtube all. the. time. (Watch Isaac Gracie & Laura Marling & thank me later.😏) Seriously, every artist they feature is STUNNING. 👌🏻 I struggle with depression and anxiety, and I've always dealt with this through writing poetry and sometimes drawing. Let me tell ya, I've hit rock bottom more than once. If you're there, then hold fast dear friends, because it is not the end, this too shall pass. Also, if you're struggling with depression or some kind of darkness (or even if you're not!), read the book Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl. It has the deepest insights in the most simple words. It is sincerely life-altering. ❤️ On a lighter note, we're going apple picking this weekend, and I'm all about it. The orchards around here are beautiful, we are surrounded by them, there's even one at the end of our lane! The kids will pick all the apples and then I will bake all the things. Happy Friday! ✨ . . . . . . #fridayintroductions #bnwsouls #sombrebeings #bnwmagic #portraitmood #folksouls #aportraitcollective #portrait_mood #themonochromaticlens #bnw_souls #clickpro #dearphotographer #homeschoolingmom #thecatholicwoman #bissisterhood #projectblessed #doilookautisticyet #actuallyautistic #anxiety #aspergers #depression #hope #SelfPortrait_Society #selfportraitsofmotherhood #selfportrait #selfportraitphotography #juliamargaretcameron #portraitsociety #portraitart
I had no idea that @babysupermarket sold educational toys as well. I Needed a few items for our #homeschoolroom and I needed them like yesterday. Target , nor Walmart had what I needed. I figured I would have to order online and wait. Little did I know, this store locally own and operated would be my dream store. They sell more than just baby furniture. With #toysrus now gone, this will be my go to shop, for educational toys and dramatic play toys. #homeschool #homeschoolmoms #homeschooling #ihomeschool #ihomeschoolmykids #homeschoolingmom #homeschoolmama #iteachtoo #blackhomeschoolmoms #blackhomeschoolers #blackhomeschool365 #blackhomeschool #blackhomeschooling #blackhomeschoolfamily #blackhomeschoolingmama #melissaanddoug
