Every week, we make a pot of tea and sit down and read poetry together. It’s simple, but I think it makes a huge impact. The girls love it and although there are always several poetry books out, they are always fighting over our one Shel Silverstein book 😂 Hazel isn’t reading yet, but when it’s her turn to “read” she makes up her own poems and they are really good, they even rhyme! . . . . . #homeschool #wildandfree #wildandfreechildren #homeeducation #homeschoolingmom #readaloudrevival #shelsilverstein #poems #bravewriterlifestyle #poetryteatime #homeschoollife #homeschooling #bookworm #homeschoolingrocks #educateyourself #learn #reading #books #readingtime #kidsreading #childrensliterature #bookshelf #poetry #bookstagram #bravewriter #candidchildhood #instagram #momswithcameras #familytime #2018bwl
We started using Handwriting Without Tears after her OT recommended it. While I’ve pushed back hard against workbooks, this gal of mine is clearly showing me that she likes them. She loves seeing her progress and checking off the completed pages. And if this homeschooling journey has taught me anything, it’s this: I’m following HER lead (so it doesn’t really matter what learning style I prefer) ✌️✌️

5 fun ways to teach your preschooler the alphabet. New post is up on the blog! 🌻🍁 I used these to teach both my kiddos their alphabet. I love these fun things in our homeschool. 🌻 Link is in the bio under #dearlyndsey
When you head out to the Zoo and let the little one lead the day. Zebras, snakes, elephants, and of course we needed to spend most of our time checking out the elusive 🐜 black ants ... Lmao Yes we saw more than just those few animals, but that was what she wanted to make sure we saw.
I'm not ready for this! We still have 3 years to go before my oldest graduates...but 3 years will be here before you know it! #homeschooling #homeschoolingrocks #highschooldays #collegeprep #ithinkiwillsurvive
I was thinking about this this afternoon as we searched for YET ANOTHER eraser... crayons or erasers? Which do you choose? Let me know in the comments! . . #homeschooling #homeschool #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoolmom #homeschoolmoms #homeschoolingadhd #homeschooler
I got a fundamentalist follower! Normally I like to keep these things to myself; after all, the great thing about freedom is being able to believe in imaginary friends or not. But when I saw a page full of pro-female-subservience and encouraged child abuse, well, how else should I welcome you? As someone who grew up in that toxic environment, constantly being told that it was "love" and "compassion", I refuse to let it taint my feed or my family. So just to be PERFECTLY CLEAR, I am an atheist, my husband is an atheist, and our son will be whatever he wants to be. Children cannot make an informed decision about their beliefs and we won't label or decide for him. Everyone has the right to their own opinions and beliefs. If you are religious--of any faith--I am not going to come to your posts and start shit, you are welcome to your path. If I have a problem with your posts I'll quietly unfollow you and we'll both go about our lives. But this particular person who inspired this is a real piece of work. It's not just Bible curriculum and the occasional 'thank you, Jesus', it's straight up justifying abuse with biblical verses (all of which are legit, in case you were wondering), and that is something that I cannot and will not abide on a humanitarian level. I am not my husband's property, no human being is, and corporal punishment is 100% abusive. . . . #atheistparent #atheist #homeschooling #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoollife #unschoolinglife #unschooling #unschoolfunschool #atheisthomeschoolers #secularhomeschooling
Sequoia National Park and Crystal Cave with my buddy! Casey was enthralled and loved it! We’ve been learning about caves and caverns in our homeschool studies and the first thing he said when we walked in was “WOW!!! Water did all of this!” So at least I know he hears me at least sometimes when I’m teaching him things 🤣 #sequoianationalpark #crystalcave #homeschoolingrocks #mykidissmart

Today I got my brows done @browsofjoy ❤️ I was so nervous. I’ve had some bad eyebrow experiences, like the time half my eyebrow was waxed off. Or the time the lady put black dye on my eyebrows, left it too long and tried to remove with Lysol😩. But today, I could not be happier 😍 with my microblading results. If you’ve been on the fence @browsofjoy is the place to go. She was informative and detailed. So thankful with the results. ❤️❤️❤️

The handle broke off my #morningtime basket which I took as an opportunity to cram it extra full. It ain't pretty folks. #reallifehomeschool #itsamess #thisismykitchen #allthetime I read Cindy Rollins' blog several years ago. I remember making lists and putting books on Amazon wish lists, but mostly I remember falling head over heels in love with the idea of morning time. And still to this day, it is what keeps me homeschooling, what I would feel the most loss over giving up. And the crazy part is . . . It is so simple. It's a basket of books, a kitchen table and us . . . reading, talking, laughing, memorizing, thinking. Today we opened up 100 Great Poems and read O Captain! My Captain! by Whitman. My oldest narrated it full of boyish glee at a shipwreck. Then I told them the dates of Whitman's life and that he was writing about a person and moment from U.S. history. I said, "this time chase the meaning" and read it again. Before I finished my sons were pounding the table, exclaiming "Abraham Lincoln!!!!!" After a morning of plumbing problems and bad attitudes, it was a sweet moment ☺ Sometimes I'm afraid Instagram might give the impression that homeschooling needs to be all done in a series of beautifully arranged flatlays, artfully designed (which by the way I adore, please keep posting them). But I promise you . . . beautiful learning moments can also happen around a crumby, sticky table with a book pulled out of an old, thrift store basket. And now I should probably go rescue those tortillas before they are smashed under the weight of ancient history. #hereisourhomeschool #morningbasket #howwehomeschool #readaloudrevival #toomanybooks #mykitchen #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoollife #readallthebooks #books #readingfamily #homeeducation #homeschoolirl #bookbasket #ighomeschoolmoms #homeschoolmoms

What is the point of education? 📚 What are we aiming for? Too many times we are shortsighted, like the guidance counselor in a cartoon I once saw. ------- Guidance Counselor: You need to improve your grades. Student: Why? Guidance Counselor: So you can get into a good college. Student: Why? Guidance Counselor: So you can get a good internship. Student: Why? Guidance Counselor: So you can get a good job. Student: Why? Guidance Counselor: So you can pay back your student loans. ------- If the education we provide to our children doesn't improve BOTH their lives and ours (as a society), we have missed the point. And it starts by seeing our children as unique individuals, not blank slates or empty buckets or plants to be cultivated. ▪ ▪ ▪ #homeschoolingmom #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoolingmomma #homeschoolinglife #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolinggirls #homeschoolingfamily #homeschoolingforthewin #homeschooling #homeschoolingbyheart #homeschoolingisfun #homeschoolingishard #homeschoolingsupport #learningathome #motherhoodinspired #learnathome #hardbutworthit #parenting101 #parentingtips #trainupachild #understandingdifferences #homeschoolwithpersonality

Today I am thankful for friends are willing to share their wisdom. I think about two years ago, give or take, I was talking to @jenmackintosh about lesson plans and she generously sent me an editable document on how she sets up her lessons.....and I did absolutely nothing with it. 😳 I absolutely loved how Jen set everything up but I couldn’t wrap my mind around how to do it with our different curriculum. And then, the other day, I was writing out lesson plans and had a perfectly clear picture in my head of how to adapt Jen’s layout to fit our @classical_conversations curriculum. I’ve been working ever since! It’s not 100% finished, but it’s finished enough that I could print it out and get rolling with what we had. Jen, thank you so much! I am ecstatic over how well laid out my year is now - and I’m ecstatic over the fact that this will easily transfer year to year, I just need to plug in the different materials for the year!! Jen, thank you thank you thank you! I am so thankful for your generosity, but I’m more thankful for your friendship! #plannerfriendsmakethebestfriends #homeschoolfriendsmakethebestfriendstoo #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #homeschoolingrocks #classicalconversations #homeschooldays #homeschoolfamily #erincondren #erincondrenteacherplanner #ectp #wlec

Finally got started on our The Good And The Beautiful lesson plans! Little A is doing the Primer, while K is doing level 1 and the teen is doing great with High School 1. The girls did the first math unit yesterday and they absolutely loved it! Great focus on calendar, place value, shapes, and numbers all without feeling overwhelming. Plus they loved the months of the year song a lot more than I thought they would! I have no idea how many times we sang it 😂 Here goes day two (in about 10 minutes!)... Hope you homeschool is going awesomely today ❤️ . . . . . #homeschool #homeschooling #thegoodandthebeautiful #momlife #thegoodandthebeautifulcurriculum #thegoodandbeautifulcommunity #tgtb #homeeducator #homeeducation #learningathome #homelearning #homeschoolmom #homeschooldays #homeschoolfamily #homeschoolpreschool #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoolingmama #homeschoolingbyheart #kidslearning #charlottemason @thegoodandthebeautiful
It's been 6 weeks since we started back to school and I think we're *finally* finding our groove. . The older kids did a great job with their chores and morning lessons while Adrik was at preschool, so we brought our lunch and a few history books to the park after picking him up! . Shout out to @jessicatelian and her curated #wholestoryhistory lists. We love her book suggestions! #homeschoolingrocks

You can only come to the morning through the shadows. - Tolkien
"These two are like the best of friend a. They love to sleep together in a little twin bed, and first thing this morning thru grabbed their Big Sister Little Sister Coloring book from Fun-Schooling books. This is the sweetest book! Little Sister always wants to color the same picture as big sister, so this coloring book is genius! No more running to the copy machine to make Little Sister her own page to color." -@littlefarmschoolhouse
I actually had the nerve to interview my own kid about homeschooling- and her opinions about her experiences weren't too bad! Here's to not being the person who screwed up her life (this week. She's 13, so that may change rapidly....) . .

Time to CELL-ebrate our plant cell lab for science today! Got up close and personal with our hand-held microscope with a piece of romaine, then discussed the difference between plant & animal cells. Made a model of a plant cell with fruit, juice, and gelatin, then the boys drew and labeled their plant cell drawings. Everyone seriously loved this lab from #realscienceodyssey , and we even got dessert out of it 👍 “Who’s got two thumbs and loves eating plant cells?” Wee Man answered, “This Guy!” #lifewiththreeboys #homeschool #homeschoolinglife #homeschoolingfamily #homeschoolingrocks #stem #classicaleducation #classicaleducationathome #handsonlearning
“Look at me! Look at me! Look at me now! It’s fun to have fun, but you have to know how.” - Dr. Seuss
So true! . It’s interesting how our minds imagine a child alone with no one else around them because they aren’t at school. Perhaps it’s because when we were at school and had a day off there was nothing to do because everyone was at school? . But homeschooling has its own community. There are many groups on FB you can join and it doesn’t take long to find where the meet ups and excursions are happening. . My kids do lots of curriculum activities too. Gymnastics, Guitar, Jiu-Jitsu, Cheerleading, Swimming, Theatre Production & Tutoring where they are around groups of kids learning. . We also visit places where other people visit like indoor trampoline centres, the park etc. . Children are far from alienated because they don’t go to school. Actually I argue the opposite is more likely to be true. If you aren’t a ‘cool’ kid at school then where does that leave you? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #homeschool #socialisation #teacher #school #coolkid #whyschool #notheretosocialize #curriculum #homeschoolingrocks #homeschooling #lifeisthecurriculum #lifeisthebestteacher
Today we made bunny biscuits from @berenstainbears cookbook. I had left over homemade biscuit dough from @magnolia table cookbook from a peach cobbler I made over the weekend. The kids loved making the bunny faces them selves and digging in when it was time to eat them. . . . . . . . . . #homeschooling #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoolingmom #homeschool #homeschoolingkids #homeschoolkids

No better way to learn about things than to go out and learn about it. Today we went out and did some trails while taking time to learn about flowers and any bugs we found alomg the way. Today AIM was most interested in the cotton that was growing wild in spots.
