Homeschool Room Tour {2017-2018}

Our homeschool room is off of our main living room. It consists of a dining table + chairs, one desk, a bookshelf, and a highly organized craft shelving unit with labeled bins.

Back-To-School: CRAYOLA

When it comes to purchasing school supply basics like crayons, colored pencils, and markers - I always look for the orange¬†box.

Are we homeschooling yet?

"Are you homeschooling them yet?" We are asked that question often as we travel from state-to-state. At first, I wavered in my answer, "Well, they're still young (ages 2 & 4). We do some school activities with them..." The real answer though is THIS: We read stacks of books every day - with dramatic voices, […]
