Proverbs Thirty-One: Thirty

A Day in the Life…

First Day of School!

| August 30, 2013

On Monday we started our school for the year! Day one was, well, day one.  I forget that routine has to be learned…  :)  Soon, though, it will be smoother than this!  Day two was much better. Our geography (Expedition Earth) for the week is going over continents, oceans, and imaginary lines.  Our project for […]

Our Homeschool Adventure 2013

| July 31, 2013

Yes, it’s official!  We are continuing this thing called homeschooling! Last year we basically did kindergarten with B and fun stuff with M.  This year’s the real deal for Kindergarten/1st grade!  M will continue pre-k stuff!

A is For Apple

| December 3, 2011

Continuing on in our “Letter a week” “schoolwork,”  Breyton loved the week we did A for Apples!  Remembering back to childhood days of peeling caramel wrappers off individual caramels, we too made some caramel apples – the old fashion way!  (And Mom, it wasn’t that bad peeling them!)  I had a good helper! But I’m […]
