This is what happens when you tell a little southern Texan baby to go put on some warm clothes if he wants to play outside. 🤣❄🤷♀️
Fresh batch of chemical-free orange scented cleaner. 🍊 I love citrus smells. This works great with lemon or grapefruit, too. I prefer orange in autumn/winter because it blends so nicely with mulling spice smells. . white vinegar + citrus peel Let sit for two weeks or so for best results. Put in glass spray bottle and dilute with water.
🎉GIVEAWAY🎉 This week I'm partnering with @makingmontessoriours to bring you 🌟A Practical Guide to Montessori and Homeschooling🌟. . While this book collection is rooted in Montessori, it is also a practical resource for parents, individuals, and homeschoolers that provides information as to how the method supports parents who are following their children on a natural learning journey. . Y'all know I'm not a Montessori purest, but we use Montessori more than any other method in our home. When Everett was born, I had heard of Montessori and joined several groups, but the only real understanding I had was simple wooden toys and allowing for independence as early as possible. Oh, how I wish I'd had this guide! . The guide is made up of 10 (digital) books. The books are Montessori Basics, Homeschooling Basics, Baby and Toddler, Practical Life, Sensorial, Early Language 3 to 6, Elementary Language 6 to 12, Early Math 3 to 6, Elementary Math 6 to 12, and Early Geography 3 to 6. ( Montessori schools don't do single grade levels like public school. They are grouped by ages 3 to 6, 6 to 9, 9 to 12.) It is by no means a curriculum, but it will help you understand the basic scope and sequence of the materials. The books focus heavily on the philosophy, parenting, and traditional use of Montessori materials, as this is a fantastic foundation to build from. . 🎉GIVEAWAY🎉 Monday 11/5 - Friday 11/16 To win a digital copy of the complete 10 book guide (A Practical Guide to Montessori and Homeschooling): follow @agrowingtime and @makingmontessoriours; comment below telling us what you love about Montessori and what you hope to learn about Montessori; tag friends for extra entries.
