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!!

Puppy cuddles. #nationalpuppyday
Putting our new grill together. He’s teaching Dylan how to do it.
Love my pups!
One perk of homeschooling is we can take the day off to help Grandma pack. #homeschoolperks #homeschoolingboys
So excited we just booked our Spring break cabin for next month!! I’m ready for a vacation!!
After a very long day of the boys not being so nice to each other, we did a build each other up activity. They had to find 10 nice things about each other to glue on the person. Thanks @monsonschoolhouse for this idea! We also did the toothpaste activity where you empty the toothpaste bottle and then tell them to put it back and explain that it’s just like when you say something mean you can’t take it back. Already seeing a change with how they are speaking to one another. #homeschool #buildingcharacter #homeschoolingboys #raisingboys
The reading books I’ve ordered have made their way in! My kids want to start reading them now but these are for next school year. I may have to give in though. These are all from #thegoodandthebeautiful book list! Can’t wait to see how much my boys enjoy these books!! #homeschool #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolreading
My two very helpful boys! Driveway was covered in ice and since Daddy was at work all day they decided to shovel the ice off the driveway!!
Our winter wonderland. Mainly ice and sleet. A little snow is falling here and there.
The boys with their Valentine’s gifts.
Beautiful roses and chocolates from my Hubby!! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!!
This happened today. The schoolroom was not being used much as we needed a new setup. So I rearranged the whole room today. Not completely finished but a little more organizing and it will be a workable space again. It’s much more inviting and not so cluttered feeling. #homeschool #homeschoolroom #homeschoolmom

Then he rolled over from the blanket and she realized and looked at me like mom make him move. They are now snuggling together. #pitbull #texasheeler
Roscoe and Dixie are starting to like each other more and more. Dixie has finally gotten where she will lay down near him as long as he doesn’t try to chew on her. #texasheeler #pitbull
The beginning of everything we need to start using #thegoodandthebeautiful curriculum fully next school year. Curriculum is ordered and supplies ordered. My kids are excited for the light table for tracing maps for geography and drawing!! #homeschool
We are planning to use this book with our boys to prepare them for puberty. I have seen it recommended all over the homeschool community! Normally is 13$ but I found it for 4$ at Five Below. Figured I’d give a heads up if anyone is looking for it and has this store close by!! #homeschool #homeschoolingboys #homeschoolmom #homeschoolhealth #homeschoolbargains
Some better pics of our new puppy. He’s a little lazy when it comes to eating and drinking.
Our newest addition to our family. He’s a Texas Heeler. Working on a name...
Hit the Target dollar spot jackpot today!! Got a new planner and all the goodies to go with it!!! #targetdollarspot #target #targetbullseyesplayground #targetbullseye #planner #planner2018 #planneraddict #plannerstickers
Started The Good and the Beautiful language arts with my kiddos today!!! It’s amazing!! No anger or tears from anyone and they actually learned the lesson. I’m doing my own spin on it to make it work for both kids from the same level for the rest of this year as my oldest needs the review and my youngest is learning things for the first time. Seriously feeling blessed that I found this curriculum!! #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolingboys #thegoodandthebeautiful #homeschoollanguagearts
History project today. We learned about the Spartans and the Athenians! Dylan enjoyed coloring the paper dolls and putting the Greek clothing and armor on them. #homeschool #homeschoolhistory #homeschoolingboys #storyoftheworldvol1 #homeschoolmom
Getting everything laminated for our new Science unit we start tomorrow on Meteorology! Cleaned and prepared the school room as we start back from our Christmas break!! #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolscience #thegoodandthebeautiful
