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!!
