Seven weeks. Our first born moves to Indiana to begin classes at Purdue University in just seven weeks! In the meantime, we're continuing to read through C.S. Lewis. Homeschool moms keep at it! Before you know it, you're teens will launch into the world. And while you miss them, you can think, "Yes! We did it! "
Proud of this group of children! They did wonderful in their rendition of the Gingerbread Girl! May I just remind everyone that their ages range from 5 to 8 years old!!! #theaterkids #poorunsocializedhomeschoolers #homeschoolingrocks #theater #makingmemories #momlife #performingarts #sweet #moments #funtimes #proud #blessings #sprouts #friendship #theworldisourclassroom
Check out the "dollhouse view" and 3D tour of my childhood home that is for sale just a ferry ride away from Seattle! Just enter the address in photo into a Google search and you will find it on Redfin.com. Pass this on to anyone looking for a home and acreage with woods on one side for exploring and a beautiful pond on the other side for row boating. . And check out that beautiful landscaping my mom has done over the years! Huge golden chain trees on the entry path, giant hydrangeas around the fire pit in back, old fashioned bushes, roses, rhodedendrons that have been there since I was born 40+ years ago! It's like a park. . #portorchard #homesforsale #goldenchaintree
The last of the water bead pictures, I will be holding off on them for a while because the boys went a bit silly with them when I left them to their own devices for a while, ๐Ÿ’Œ note to self โ€œdonโ€™t leave them to their own devicesโ€ hahahahaha Who knows what Iโ€™m talking about? ๐Ÿ’Œ ๐Ÿ’Œ ๐Ÿ’Œ ๐Ÿ’Œ ๐Ÿ’Œ #homeschoolcollective #homeeducation #magiscofchildhood #childhoodunplugged #homeschoolaustralia #naturallearning #mulberrychildhood #playmatters #runwildmychild #wildandfreechildren #wildexplorersclub #living_homeschool #christianhomeschool #learningthroughplay #homeeducator #boymomlife #homeschoolfamily #letthekids #homeschoollife #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoolmama #dailyparenting #lifelearners #homeschoolingourboys #learningisfun #homeschool #waldorfeducation #waldorfinspired #waldorfkids

When you receive a flower press as an early birthday present, you *immediately* go outside and find some press-able nature items! ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒฟ . Thank you @bonnieover for the thoughtful gift! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜˜
We were lucky enough to slip into a geology class at the uni recently. Exploring what makes up different sands around the world and investigating samples from all over the globe! The beautiful white one is Fraser Island, whilst some others come from as far as Spain, UK, California, and Malaysia, as well as some other Aussie locations . . . . #HowWeSchool #Excursion #HomeEd #Jun18 #ExploreScience #AussieHomeschoolers #Homeschool #Homeschoolers #HomeschoolAustralia #HomeschoolLife #HowWeLearn #HomeschoolingRocks #GriffithUni #Geology #LifeLongLearners #LoveLearning #HomeEducation #Beaches

These best friends went on their first road trip together! They are 8 days apart and we celebrated their birthdays with a trip to Blowing Rock Tweetsie Railroad to see Thomas. They had a blast gem mining learning about stones native to the Appalachian region as well as from all over the world. They could have stayed for hours had we let them! We are still in the process of cleaning up precious stones, fools gold, and fossilized fish poop๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. We got to see a Cowboy and Indian skit while riding Thomas and explore a fun train museum. I must say though my favorite part is their matching conductor outfits! #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #girlmom #lifeschool #preschool #homeschoolpreschool #hereisourhomeschool #learning #beststart #homeschoolingrocks #schomeschool #wildandfree #learningonthego #bestfriend #bff #roadtrip #gemmining #docsrocks #blowingrock #northcarolina #thomasthetrain #tweetsie #railroad #tweetsierailroad #dayoutwiththomas
We just saw the movie โ€œAdriftโ€ with Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin (with Greek subtitles of course). But I think Anna is seriously reconsidering our sailing endeavors. #adrift #truestory #sailinglife
@monkeymatmama season has arrived in the Pacific Northwest and we're celebrating with a game in the shade.

Connor and I were building our sand castle village and river and then found a huge beetle! Surprised to see what happens at the end of this clip! #bugs #lake #beach #sandcastle #beetles #homeschooling #homeschoolingrocks #funtimes
๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿ’ƒ@essentricswithhannah came to Frog Creek and demonstrated her class for my boys and couple of their buddies! I think it is so important for young men too, to learn how to take time for the health of their minds and bodies. . It was a great 30 minutes of gentle and fun moves that will help stretch and strengthen their growing bodies (and help that slumped posture that is happening as "someone" grows so fast) Check out her Instagram @essentricswithhannah and Facebook page for more info on her class, time, price (super affordable) and place! . #frogcreekboys #essentricswithhannah #raisingmen #Jwhomeschool #homeschoollife #homeeducator #homeeducation #homeschoolcollective #ihsnet #homeschoolingbyheart #charlottemasonliving #homeschoolingrocks #wildandfreechildren
Since last week, my feed of those from the ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญ is full of first-day at school pictures so I thought I'll join the bandwagon. Perplexed? Well, she's homeschooled and we're sleepy (This morning we went to the bank to pay bills, the grocery and the wet market for this week's meals, clean the house and do other chores. Her "babies" are also celebrating their birthdays so she prepared a party for them at her room) so we took a 2.5 almost going 3-hour nap this afternoon. One reason to love homeschooling - nap when you want. ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด #inspiredchildhood #firstdayofhomeschool #homeschooling #whywehomeschool #homeschoolingrocks #childhoodmemories #simplejoys #ourtinymoments

Did you know #homeschooling has proven benefits over public schooling for both the family and the child? Let's face facts: Our schools are not set up to nurture and protect the family unit. Indoctrination has taken over. Although there will always be a few exceptions, the majority of homeschooled children learn in a physically, emotionally, and spiritually safe environment; Their learning is tailored, rounded, natural, producing creative and innovative thinkers and doers; And for me, the biggest advantage is that God is welcome and fully a part of our secular learning (as it should be), our values and morals practiced, and our family time respected because we always come first. #thisiswhywehomeschool #homeschoolingrocks #thinkaboutit
Big brothers allergies are going crazy so it was time to pass the mowing baton to little brother. I love how careful he is to turn slowly and carefully hug the edges and to stop and move any small obstacles out of the way instead of running them over. Watching my babies grow up and become capable humans is so awesome. "Little" first times like this aren't so little to me. . 11 years old but he has had years of experience running this mower (without the blade running) to help dad test it after fixing issues on it. And then had lessons from dad about safety and operating before setting him off to mow. . #lifelessons #frogcreekboys #raisingmen #frogcreeksummertime #wildandfreechildren
A lovely walk in nature made even better (in my kidsโ€™ eyes) by a snake (Eastern Kingsnake) sighting. #getoutside #statebotanicalgardenofgeorgia #homeschoolingrocks

June really is one of the best months of the year.
Sasha decided to research the dwarf planets in our solar system - all on her own! Did you know that there are 5 dwarf planets in our solar system? Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris! Ceres is the smallest. Pluto is mostly ice. Haumea takes 285 years to orbit the sun. Makemake was discovered in 2005 and has no atmosphere (also it's why Pluto lost it's status). Eris takes 557 years to orbit the sun! ๐ŸŒŒ (The kids love these videos on YouTube: Kids Learning Tube -" Solar System Solar System Song Planet Song Dwarf Planets Song" )
{{SWIPE}} We love seeing our children just talk to one another. Yes they have their little arguments etc, but overall they love communicating with each other. Did you know that healthy sibling relationships are important in this life? Yes! Itโ€™s been reported that those with positive sibling relationships report higher life satisfaction and lower rates of depression later in life. Not only that but in times of illness and traumatic events, siblings provide emotional, social and psychological support to one another. This is encouraging to hear especially with how close in age our children are being that they are #stairstepper kids. So tell us, do you have positive sibling relationships in your life? Weโ€™d love to hear about them belowโ€. #Betrulyfaithful #trulyfaithful #PAVandOEV #VForceFam #parenthood #building #nationbuilding #family #blackfamilies #familyfirst #familyforever #blackfamily #familygoals #familyovereverything #homeschooler #homeschooling #homeschoolingrocks #homeschoolingmom #blackhomeschooling #happyfamily #familybonding #siblings #siblingssunday

Much needed family break tonight - we went to Wyoming 310 - a fabulous restaurant with delicious food! They were so full that we had to eat outside - and we were attacked by mosquitoes!

โ€œOnce upon a time there was a fairy pirate ship floating on pink clouds of glitter....โ€ We stumbled upon these Roryโ€™s story cube at one of our favorite places, @chickfila. The Halfling has had such fun making up stories I ordered the Fantasia and Prehistoria sets. I love that it gets her mind thinking and creative juices flowing. The box is small enough to fit in my purse to carry with us when we are out and about and know we will have a long wait time. I look forward to expanding our collection as there are many more set! @rorys_storycubes #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #girlmom #lifeschool #preschool #homeschoolpreschool #hereisourhomeschool #learning #beststart #homeschoolingrocks #schomeschool #wildandfree #chickfila #rorysstorycubes #storycubes #imagination #storytime #stories #thinking #lowtech #creativity #creative #play #fairytale

We have managed to get a small little bounty from our garden. Unfortunately the beetles infected some of our plants so this is the end of cucumbers for us. Our corn is looking great, we may or may not get any bell peppers, and our tomato plants are taller than I am and are heavy with the ripening fruit! I am learning alongside my sweet girl from last years mistakes, as well as this years, and will continue to learn as the years go on. #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #girlmom #lifeschool #preschool #homeschoolpreschool #hereisourhomeschool #learning #beststart #homeschoolingrocks #schomeschool #wildandfree #garden #nature #farmtotable #stilllearning #ffa #futurefarmer #sustainability #cucumber #carrot #blueberry #beans
