Five Things That I am Loving This Week

Five Things That I am Loving This Week

1. I am sure y’all remember me posting a few pictures from our Ladies Jammie Party last Friday…

But what I didn’t tell y’all about was the awesome DOOR PRIZE that I won! To be honest, I am not exactly sure how I won cutest pj’s because precisely an hour and a half before, I was a COMPLETE DISASTER. Continue reading

Our Schoolroom Renovation

Our Schoolroom Renovation

Hi Friends! With our school year coming to a close, we thought we would share some of the CHANGES and UPGRADES that we have made to our space over the past 8 months! We feel that our space will probably be one that is every-changing as we continue our homeschooling journey, but for the time being we are very pleased with how much we have accomplished this school year.

Since this was our very first year of homeschooling, we kind of JUMPED in with both feet forward. We didn’t know exactly what would work best for us, and fully expected this to be a year of TRIALS and ERRORS. This would be our year of really learning what would work best for our family, and what we were going to have to tweak and change a bit before getting into our groove.Continue reading

Star Wars Here We Come!

Star Wars Here We Come!

Happy Friday, Friends! Are y’all as EXCITED about CHRISTMAS BREAK as we are!?!? Our kiddos worked EXTRA HARD this week, and completed all of their schoolwork and tests yesterday. So we had NO SCHOOL TODAY! YAY!!! And Patrick was THRILLED because the day that he has been counting down for all year was finally HERE!

No, I am not talking about Christmas. I am talking about the new Star Wars movie…

counting down to star wars

To CELEBRATE their achievement on finishing up the semester strong, our sweet little elves, Holly and Jolly, brought them an unexpected SURPRISE this morning! They had movie ticket to go see the NEW Star Wars movie (The Force Awakens), NEW Star Wars shirts laid out, and a stack of all of their favorite candy. The kids could hardly contain their EXCITEMENT when they saw all of their GOODIES that the elves brought for them!Continue reading

Math… The Struggle Is Real!

Math… The Struggle Is Real!

OHHHH… YES!!!! The struggle is REAL, my friends! Thank heavens I have a teacher guide to help me through this homeschooling when it comes to MATH! Definitely NOT my most favorite subject. HAHA! 😉

P.S.: We just finished fractions, and according to my calculations… approximately 1/4 of my WHOLE head of hair is now GRAY!!! Not good… NOT good at ALL.

Reason No. 143 To Homeschool

Reason No. 143 To Homeschool

This is just another reason as to why we have been LOVING homeschooling! It has been raining here in Louisiana for 2 days straight! (Which we aren’t complaining about since it has not rained in over 2 weeks) It has been so HOT and DRY that our ground is cracking, and our poor plants and grass have been dying… even with regular watering. So, as y’all can imagine, we have welcomed this much needed rain with OPEN ARMS! It has also tremendously helped to cool our home down with the HIGH HEAT ADVISORY that we have been under.Continue reading

A Teacher’s Prayer

A Teacher’s Prayer

To all of our teachers, we haven’t forgotten about all of you! Here’s a GREAT prayer to pray over yourselves every morning. Since I will be homeschooling our children this year, I will personally use this one daily. Also, please know that we will also be praying for all of you, your students, and your classrooms this year. PRAYER REALLY DOES WORK! I know this to be a FACT! It can change things in ways NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE! We personally never went 1 day without praying over our children, as well as their teachers, and their school. And just because we are going to homeschool, that does not mean that we are going to stop. We will still start each and every day off with prayer.Continue reading
