Our newest addition for the school room! I’ve got to find a spot for it but I can’t wait to work this in somehow. #homeschool #homeschoolroom #target
Architecture curriculum is coming along!! I have started to put it all into the computer! Hope to have it available to everyone in the next couple of months. I will need a couple of volunteers to test it out. Should have it finished end of July. If you think this would be something you’d like to do message me! #homeschool #homeschoolarchitecture #homeschoolcurriculum
Target School Haul! A few things for our school room and a few school supplies we need. I will be going back in a couple weeks though as our store hadn’t put everything out yet. #target #targetdollarspot #homeschool #homeschoolsupplies
My kids were so excited to receive this from @teachingtextbooks !! I love the messages on the pencils and that they get to see all of the buddies for all the levels!! #teachingtextbooks #homeschool #homeschoolmath
Making progress on our schoolroom!! Hope to get it done this week and then get our updated school room post up on the blog! #homeschool #homeschoolroom #homeschoolmom
Some of my favorite times in life are spent sitting around the fire with lifelong friends!
Our first month of school is planned out We are starting early this year! Our official start date is August 13th. Here’s a little sneak peek into how I do my planning. My kids are coordinated by color and then subjects we do together are in pink. Now to finish organizing the school room!! #homeschool #homeschoolplanning #homeschoolplanner #mardelsasimpleplan
Happy 4th of July from our family!!
Happy 4th of July!!!
My first book of the summer to read through!! Working on myself as a mother and a homeschooler! Want to be the best I can for my kids!! #homeschoolmom #homeschool
When you can’t find a curriculum you like about Architecture you get into Homeschool Mom mode and create your own!! It’s coming together and I can’t wait to share it with y’all! #homeschool #homeschoolelectives #homeschoolarchitecture #homeschoolcurriculum
Homeschool mom life! Laminating posters and items for our next school year. #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolroom
Fun with friends!!
Shelves are done!! I love them!! We did have to make the middle board smaller so the books sat up better but it works now and I am so happy with it!! #homeschool #homeschoolroom #diy
These are a few of our electives for this next school year. My 5th grader will be studying Architecture. My 7th grader with be studying Graphic Design. And they both will be diving into Coding for the first time!! We will also be doing Typing, a unit study on Oklahoma, and Spanish. #homeschool #homeschoolelectives #rainbowresource
I have a very happy 7th grader! He is so excited about studying rocks this year and that I bought him the kits so he can be hands on with his assignments!! #homeschool #homeschooolscience #homeschoolboys #rainbowresources
Making progress. Organizing and getting rid of stuff. Have a box full of curriculum to sell. After I finish getting all of last years stuff gone through and put away then I can bring in all of our new stuff and get it all set up. I am ready to start putting the new stuff together and up on the walls!! #homeschool #homeschoolroom
The book ledges are painted. Now I have motivation to get our school room cleaned up and then I can start getting it ready for the next year. All new wall stuff is going up this next year. Decided not to paint the school room in hopes of moving next year possibly. #homeschool #homeschoolroom
New book ledges for our school room!!! Now I just need to paint them white and get them up on the walls!! #homeschool #homeschoolroom #diy #anawhiteplans #anawhite
Gathering the rest of the stuff we need for this next school year. Our ant farm and some insects to go with our Arthropods unit. Music this year we’ll be learning to play recorders. My 7th graders student planner by A Simple Plan. A few books to go with units I am planning to do. And play dough for activities in our units. Waiting on a few more things to come in and then we will be ready to start in September! #homeschool #homeschoolsupplies #homeschoolscience #homeschoolplanner #homeschoolmusic
Lots of swimming happening this summer. They are trying out their new floats and pool light tonight.
Both boys helping mow the yard. It was my youngest sons first time helping.
The aftermath of rearranging the schoolroom a few months ago. It became a catch all. We moved school to the dining room table to avoid the mess. So embarrassing. Now to get rid of all the junk and pick out new paint colors and build new shelves. This summer will be exciting as I make changes so we can enjoy our schoolroom more this next year. It is definitely time for an update. Minimal is key! Maybe we won’t turn it into a catch all anymore either. 😉 Now where to begin. #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolclassroom #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolroomfail
The boys are out with dad enjoying a baseball game downtown today. I’m enjoying some quiet time binge watching tv.
Sno-cones and pool day with the family!!
Trying something new with Dylan to hopefully help him master the upper multiplication problems! So far it is helping!! #homeschool #homeschoolmath #homeschoolmultiplication #timestales #multiplication
This boy enjoyed the pool today even though the water’s freezing. Need a few more hot days before I or my oldest gets in.
They spoiled me this year!!
Don’t normally take the time to do my make up and fix my hair in the mornings but decided to today. Happy Mother’s Day to me!! We are having a chill day at home with a cookout with my mom. Love days like these!!
They made me a mother! I am beyond blessed to have these two as my sons.
Happy Mother’s Day!!
Took the boys to Get Air tonight for Dylan’s Birthday. They loved it!
Started working on some planning for next school year. I figured I’d share how I do my planning with y’all. I begin with figuring out how many lessons each subject has and divide it by 36 weeks. Then I figure out which days I want to do each subject. This next school year we are doing main subjects Monday through Thursday and our Fridays will be electives that they have chosen. So once I have all of that figured out. I plan out when we are starting and when our breaks will be and that’s what helps me decide when our ending date is. I will share more once I actually start placing lessons in the weekly calendars. #homeschool #homeschoolplanning #homeschoolmom #homeschoolers
Although we haven’t initially started our History for next year we have been playing the game that comes with it. It has become an essential part of our school week! My kids love it and I can’t wait to start the whole History Year 1 next year! #thegoodandthebeautiful #tgtbendofyear #homeschool #homeschoolhistory #homeschooling #education
As our school year is ending, we have been reflecting on what has been our favorite subjects this year. Both of my kids love #thegoodandthebeautiful science. The Intro to Energy unit was our favorite and my boys continue to ask to play the game that is at the end. #tgtbendofyear #homeschool #education #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolscience
He got everything he asked for and more! And he doesn’t like cake or icing so he asked for jello and cookies instead. When it’s your birthday you get what you want!!
My youngest is now 10. I really don’t feel like I’m old enough for my youngest child to be 10. But here we are 🤣. He is an amazingly sweet and smart boy that loves to tell jokes and make us laugh.
Getting the pool hole leveled out so we can get our pool set up in the next week or two.
Austin decided he has a real interest in learning about rocks when we were on spring break and that he wanted to focus on that this next school year for science. So I picked up his science today for next year. #homeschool #homeschoolboys #homeschoolscience #homeschoolnature #homeschoolcurriculum
Trying out a new planner for this next school year. It’s called The Simple Plan Planner. My favorite thing about it is that each month has different scripture on it. Plus it’s really pretty too!! #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolplanner #homeschoolplanning #planner
Had a great night with friends and all of our kids. Stayed up way too late but the laughs and good talks were well worth it!!
Hate this time of year. Tornado season. #weather #oklahoma #okweather #tornadoseason
Just got our new posters for our school room. This is the beginning of our new school room design. More to come this summer. I am so excited to create a more relaxed environment in our school room. #homeschool #homeschoolmom #natureschool #homeschoolnature #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolroom
This hole fills up every time it rains. It’s where our swimming pool goes each year but before summer comes it’s a great place to play in the mud. They love it!
Redid our front planter this weekend! Planted some bulbs back by the gardenia bush in the empty space! Love it!
Spoiled myself today!! New hair color is happening tomorrow!! Even got a free tote bag out of it!
My family! 💕
When he offers to take a selfie I take full advantage of it!! Love him ❤️
We went mining today. The boys loved it and I learned how much Austin is really into rocks!! Looks like I will be finding a study on rocks for our next homeschool year.
Exploring the creek that runs next to our cabin.
Spring Break 2018 trip to the cabin has began!!

One perk of homeschooling is we can take the day off to help Grandma pack. #homeschoolperks #homeschoolingboys
