First Day of Homeschool {2018/2019}

Hi Guys!

As you can tell by the title of this blog post we have started back up with homeschool, for our 6th year of homeschooling!

This year i have an 8th grader, 5th grader, 2nd grader, and preschooler.

*Seriously why is it so hard to get 4 people to look at the camera at the same time and smile. This was the best picture i got.*

I plan on sharing all our curriculum choices in a separate blog post, so be on the lookout for that.

But as far as how our first day of school went, it was pretty good. We are doing a new schedule this year so of course that takes time to get used to. I might share our schedule in a separate blog post, if that something you guys would like to see, let me know. As we were doing our school work i realized some of our stuff hadn’t arrived yet and i also realized that i forgot to order a few things, so that was our one hiccup during the day. Nothing major though, and we were able to move along with the day.

Cruz, my preschooler, loves doing school. He keeps asking for more work, gosh how i love that age! I wish my 8th grader was as eager to do school work.

I really wish we had a fun, first day back at school tradition, but the only thing we do is take these pictures and do interviews, which will also be in a separate blog post. I was thinking though that we might do something fun on Friday to celebrate our first week of being back to school. Not sure yet, but i will let you know if i come up with something.

New Family Members

Hi Guys!

As you can tell from the title, we have added some new members to our family. I thought today would be a good day to introduce them to you.

Meet Bear

He is a 2 month old German Shepherd. His father weighs 105 pounds and his mother weighs 80 pounds, so Bear is going to be a big boy one day. He was a father’s day present for my husband, because my husband has always wanted a German Shepherd.

Bear is super active and playful, yet he has a lot of moments where is he super sleepy.

He has also chosen to be an outside dog, every time we bring him inside the house he whines.

We all love him and we were very excited to add him to our family.

Now, i’d like to also introduce Snow White

She is a 6 month old Lionhead rabbit. My husband surprised me with her as an early birthday present, since i love bunnies.

She is fluffy and cute and the perfect addition to our family.

I hope you enjoyed meeting Bear and Snow White, and if you have any tips/tricks/advice on raising dogs or bunnies please let me know in the comments!

Happy Easter 2018

he is risen

We are having a very relaxing Easter this year.

My daughter woke us up at 1 o’clock this morning, throwing up, so our Easter isn’t going exactly how we had planned, but that’s ok. We are taking it easy and just enjoying each other’s company.

Sadly, i didn’t get around to taking any pictures of the kids Easter baskets this morning or any pictures of them searching for eggs around the house… but i did get a few pictures this week of some of the Easter things we have done.

If you follow me on Instagram, earlier this week i shared that we “egged” a neighbors house…

We have also been working on Easter themed word searches, which is my 10 year old’s favorite thing to do…

We went to a local country supply store, to visit the baby chicks… Lincoln was the most obsessed with them and cried having to leave the store.

We went to a Panaderia (which means bakery in Spanish) for some Mexican Sweet Bread, which is a must for our Easter morning. My husband grew up always have bread and honey on Easter, so we are continuing on with this tradition with our own children.

My husband eats his bread with honey, as per his childhood tradition. However, all the children prefer to eat the bread without the honey.

This week, we also went to a egg hunt in our town. Lincoln enjoyed finding the eggs.
