Homeschool~ Year 1 Catch-Up ~Year 2 Begins…

Wow! It’s been a while!

Apparently keeping a blog going and homeschooling is much harder than I thought!

Our year has been filled with amazing topics, great field trips, and a learning curve of managing a home while teaching!

Not only that, but I started my very own small business on the side…so busy is an understatement!

Here is a quick recap of what went on throughout the past year and my hope to keep recording our homeschool days as best I can! ( I would love for my kids to find this blog one day and see all that they accomplished!)


Field Trips:


Science Experiments:


And Celebrating Halloween!


We have also revamped our Curriculum a couple of times!


MFW K, 1 AND 2



Lazer Maze

Little Red Riding Hood Thinking Game

Jump In Thinking Fun Game

Acorn Alphabet

and our Local Library!!

I have loved printing off extras from other websites and from Teachers Pay Teachers!

From here on out, we will be fairly relaxed, working through a few different curriculums but also working with the interest of my kids!

Here’s to Year 2!!

It was close enough to our business that the commute was enjoyable, the housing costs were ideal and the population was filled with young families like our own.
