We started our Art through History today by drawing plants and learning how to shade. My oldest lost interest pretty quick but the youngest kept with it. So here is his finished drawing and mine is the last one. I had to have fun too!! #homeschool #homeschoolart #homeschooler #homeschoolmom
Decided I’m making the boys Christmas pajamas this year. So while I was buying fabric for a new tree skirt and stockings, I picked up some cute Christmas fabric for them. I’m so excited! They are going to be so cute!!
Getting that Grammar in one way or the other. Sit how you want as long as you get it read. That’s how we do it in this homeschool house. #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschooler #homeschoollife #growingwithgrammar
Kids are gone so it’s just me and the hubs having a small fire and s’mores tonight.

After learning about the pyramids and the Sphinx today in History we followed up with The Sphinx documentary on Netflix. #homeschool #homeschoolhistory #homeschooler #homeschoolmom #homeschoolingboys
My boys started today with History and building pyramids. Our lesson was about pyramids and the Sphinx. I am really loving the Story of the World curriculum. After we read the boys talk and ask questions. They are much more engaged with History this year. #homeschool #storyoftheworldvol1 #homeschoolhistory #homeschooler #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolmom
Family time around the fire with s’mores. Listened to music and just relaxed together.
We finished reading Holes yesterday. Today we are watching the movie. I love hearing my boys compare the book and the movie. #homeschool #homeschooler #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolmom #homeschoolfun

This school year has been amazing so far. It's amazing how much better things can be when you pick the right curriculum. Here my boys are working hard on their Growing with Grammar and it's amazing!! I help them read through and understand their lesson and they are able to work independently through the workbook. #homeschool #homeschooler #homeschoollanguagearts #growingwithgrammar #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolmom

Our history lesson today was about how archeologists helped discover history. Then we headed outside to be archaeologists ourselves. They found gems and dinosaurs. It was a great hit and they asked if we could do it again sometime. •Swipe• #homeschool #homeschooler #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolhistory #storyoftheworldvol1
We are loving Teaching Textbooks. Austin has never liked math and the past 4 days he has asked to do math and said it is his favorite subject this year. So happy I chose this curriculum for him this year. #homeschool #homeschoolingboys #teachingtextbooks #homeschooler #homeschoolmath

Our new school desks. Much more room. Can't wait to do school tomorrow and use them! #homeschool #ikea
