I went again this year @bjupresshomeschool Distance Learning Online!! We did it this last school year and LOVED it!! It only took me 17 years of homeschooling to find what really works for my family. Thankful I have it for the next 10 years!! 😁 #Homeschool #HomeschoolLife #HomeschoolMom #Homeschooling #MyLittleHomeschool #BJU #BJUOnline #BJUDistanceLearning #BJUPress #18YrsAndCounting

Growing up I remember the stigma that was centered around homeschooling. It was honestly part of what took me SO long to actually pull the trigger! Thank God, I got over that!! * So I figure lets break down some stigmas one at a time!!! * "homeschoolers are weird"...this is one of my favorite things to hear one say. AND your right, Homeschoolers ARE weird! You know, If it makes a person weird to follow their dreams or passions regardless of what others think and to happily carry on as ones authentic self then so be it! * Here's a few reasons why homeschoolers are weird: * 1. They don't understand not being allowed to eat on demand. Or go to the toilet at their leisure. They don't understand asking permission for these basic things. * 2. They have passions and interests in things you might not expect someone of their age. And they expect you to be interested too. * 3.to being treated as equals, so they talk to adults as equals. This also means that "because I said so" doesn't work with them. They’re accustomed to getting a factual and logical answer. * 4. They don't understand meanness or bullying. Not being used to cliques and the social hierarchy of school means they tend to assume everyone is kind. * 5. They'll tell you when youre wrong. They aren't under the impression that adults hold the key to all knowledge and they're not afraid to speak up. * Love this quote and just had to share because its so fitting!!! * "these days you hear so many people encourage individuality. Phrases like "be yourself" and "don't worry about what others think of you" can be heard or read online every single day. But really what people are saying is "be yourself" as long as it fits inside the box of what society has deemed as normal." ~Jen (chaotic bliss homeschooling). #homeschool #largefamily #unschooling ##society #childledlearning #interestledlearning #school #outdoors #learneverywhere #influencer #marketing #mytribe#homeducating #highschoolhomeschool #elementaryteacher #stigma #weird #homeschoolmom #workfromhomemommy

I want to always share this! {thanks, Facebook memories!} Year after year, I love looking back to see where I started this journey, how I was inspired originally, what God was doing and continues to do in my life. 🙌🏼 And now I am paying it forward and mentoring others on their journey! This is so much more than just physical transformations, “getting fit”, or even “living my best life” - because all of those things WILL pass away. As I stated in the original post two years ago, my WHY is the same - to glorify God in all that I do. #itiswell 💗 💗 💗 💗 #adoptivemom #downsyndromemom #specialneedsmom #adoptallthebabies #momworkout #workoutathome #workoutwithkids #athomeworkout #easypeasy #easypeasyhomeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolmama #travelingmoms #travelingmom #doctorwife #surgeonwife #militarywife #stayathomemom #strongmoms #fitclub #comealive

The question I get asked the most is, “You’re with your kids 24/7. How do you have time for yourself?” Here are my answers: 1. I make time! When Ayden goes for swim lessons twice a week, I utilize the YMCA’s childcare and Ari goes to “school” for an hour while I sit in the lobby and work or read! 2. When my husband comes home, I give him time to unwind and then he sends me in the bedroom and closes the door so I have a chance to rest for a bit! 3. I have friends with older kids who LOVE babies and it’s like a free break! 4. I wake up early/go to sleep later than the kiddos! . I love being a SAHM but I’m not Superwoman! That “me time” is definitely need to sustain my sanity! 😜 • • • #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #homeschoollife #homeschoolfamily #homeschoolers #momlife #homeschoolmoms #blackhomeschool #SAHM #stayathomemom #sahmproblems #letthembelittle #honestmommin #momboss #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #childhoodunplugged #raisinglittles #raisingmytribe #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified #momsofinsta #momsofinstagram #momlife #mom #joyfulmamas #stayathomemom

She keeps begging me for more school. She doesn’t want to stop! Yesterday, they collected seeds and we read the book, How a Seed Grows. In the book they gave an example with bean seeds and watching them grow. As we read it, I was holding my breathe hoping they wouldn’t mention us doing our own. They, actually, didn’t BUT I happened to be making breakfast for dinner and had all of the items to follow the experiment. So I stepped out of my, “I don’t need another thing to take care of or do pants,” and jumped into my “fun mom pants” and am thankful I did. Here’s to hoping they grow, now 🤞🏻. . . . . #homeschoolmom #motherhoodlens #schooling #lifeinthecountry #alwayswantingtolearn #motherhoodtruths #momoffourlittles #momoffourkids #homeschoolingmom #thankfulmom #growingthings #teachinglittles #teachingkids #experimentsforkids #growingplantsfromseeds #ihopetheygrow

**Disclaimer** that is marker, NOT blood on this little cowboy. 🤪 I taught piano lessons through h.s. and college. Huge blessing! Shortly before baby #4 was born, the need arose again. This time around, my piano income is, again, a HUGE blessing and a vital/necessary part of our budget. The amazing privilege and ability to be in a position to earn money without leaving my kiddos is NOT lost on me. I am so incredibly grateful. It is also a challenge. The majority of my days are spent as a homeschool mom teaching, guiding, working with, and being with my 4 boys. I love this. Over the course of 3 days a week, I have 15 piano students who come for lessons. Some days I just feel “teachered” out. 🤪 The juggling act of being “mom” and seeing to the needs of an active toddler and his three brothers while trying to also teach other children at the same time can be ...exhausting, frustrating, and stretches me thin some days! My students are real troopers - bleeding owies that need to be bandaged, snacks needed, stinky diapers to be changed, teething babies, unexpected messes and spills, etc...piano lessons at my house are full of adventure! I do not share this to complain, but to serve as a reminder to me and to anyone else who may need to hear it - if you are having a hard day, a tough season of life ... hang in there. We can do hard things! As tough and impossible as some of these times feel, there is still SO much good to be found. SO much to be grateful for. Hold onto those things! Tightly! For me, this helps me fight away the negativity and overwhelm that try to creep in. Honestly, there is NOWHERE I would rather be at this time of my life than in the trenches of motherhood. The beautiful, heart wrenching, muddy, sticky, stinky, full of love and kisses, giggly, exhausting and glorious trenches of motherhood. These are the days. ❤️ We’ve got this 😊 #motherhood #momtruth #lifeisbeautiful #beautifulmess #boymom #homeschoolmom #icandohardthings #wevegotthis #togetherwecan #momlife #nowhereidratherbe

Last week we studied the first nine plagues. Today, we studied the tenth plague. First the children got into character as Hebrew children. Then they found a stuffed lamb we could use as a sacrifice, and put its blood on our door posts. We discussed how they may have felt as slaves in Egypt. After reading the story of the Passover in Exodus 11-12, we read the book The Longest Night and went to the dining room for a modified #poetryteatime in which we had grape juice and learned about the Seder plate and how the Passover is observed today (we made our Seder plate #vegan of course). I've learned that the more real I make history for them, the more likely they are to remember it. They all really loved today's lesson. 😊 #homeschool #homeschoolhistory #scripturestudy #homeschoolmom #oldtestament #passover

Science is so COOL! . The second I told the kids were we going to do a Science Experiment They could NOT relax! They didn't even know what a science experiment was! Haha It just sounds fun and exciting, doesn't it? This was by far the easiest and most entertaining "experience" as Miss O calls them. She's not wrong though! This was a great experience and one I'll be doing again and again! . Science experiments are like hiding vegetables in a meal.

🚨UPDATE ALERT🚨 If you own the Phonemic Awareness bundle, you are either going to love me or hate me, because I just UPDATED the Beginning Sounds Tic-Tac-Toe packet! 😍 LINK: http://bit.ly/2vDS4ec 🍎Each page is complete with 1 sound. This allows the students to focus on just one specific sound at a time. Partners can play the game over and over! 🎯Here is how I envision playing the game. Put 5-6 letters out that correspond with the specific beginning sound the students are working on. Students say the beginning sound for each picture and then cover it with their marker. For example.../d/../d/...dog. Just like the traditional Tic-Tac-Toe game, 3 in a Row wins the round. If a student wins the round, they take the letter d. Whoever wins the most letters, wins the game!

We all know comparison robs us of joy. We shouldn't compare ourselves to others, but have you ever recognized that it's no good to compare yourself to different times and periods in your OWN life either? Maybe you own a business and you're in a downward period so you compare yourself to another time that was flourishing. Maybe you're struggling to lose weight or some other aspect of your health is an issue and you compare yourself to a different period where you were thinner or healthier. What about this moms... you've just had a baby and you're tired and exhausted and can't do everything you did before, BUT you compare yourself to the time before the baby when you accomplished more or you felt like you met the needs of your children or husband better. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Two words of advice for you, STOP IT! Comparison in any situation is NEVER good because it robs us of the joy God wants us to be experiencing NOW. When I find myself in this spot the thing that helps me turn it around is by focusing on gratitude for the right here and now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So let's pull on our Pollyanna pants and play the glad game and share what we are glad about! I'll go first... I'm glad that even though my house isn't spotless and there are usually marbles, trucks, dolls and clothes scattered throughout that I have all these sweet little people around me who love me and call me mommy. What about you? What are you glad about today, right now?

Real talk: yesterday was a doozy. Sin, ugh (so much.) People often say that marriage or having kids were their great sanctifying forces in life. Fair enough. But can we talk about THE HOMESCHOOLING OF THE KIDS? Geez Louise, I can’t even. I’m fed up with myself that I keep having to make right with my kids because I oftentimes sin against them in pursuing what I want (quiet kids, fast kids, clean and tidy kids, sleeping kids, working hard kids, calm kids, this list could literally go one for days.) __ “Wait, Mom, aren’t you forever correcting us about sinning because we want what WE want?” I imagine the kids asking themselves silently. 🤔 “Yes, Sweetie, Mommy needs help.” __ Here’s the thing: my kids didn’t ask to be homeschooled. They may or may not wish that they went to “Real School.” But let ME not be the reason that they wish they were elsewhere. 😱 This is why we need Jesus. I’m a mess, but I’m a mess with Jesus and I know he’s gonna keep helping me. _____ #spreadingthefeast #homeschoolmama #charlottemasoneducation #amblesideonline #charlottemasonhomeschool #charlottemasoninspired #homeducation #homeeducator #homeschooling #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolinginsouthafrica #homeschoolingsouthafrica #samom #sahomeschool #sahomeschoolmom #charlottemason #motherculture

One of my homeschooling goals this year is to bake weekly with the kids, teach them to read a recipe, gather ingredients, follow the directions, measure appropriately, and make things beautiful. This is our second week of baking, and I think it turned out pretty well. Vanilla GF sponge layered with icing and strawberry jam and topped with berries. Get. In. My. Belly. The kids had to leave the kitchen once it was decorated because, "I can't stand not eating it right away!" the eldest yelled as she fled. We are waiting for dad to get home before diving in and learning to use self-control and not stick our fingers in the icing. Homeschooling is really hard and exhausting, but we get to share in these small victories together and enjoy doing something lovely, that blesses our home and entire family. #homeschoolmom #oneroomschoolhouse #starbaker #hiphomeschoolmoms #homeschool #cake #amateurbaker #teachthemdiligently #wildandfree #glutenfree #gf #celiacfriendly #celiacdisease #celiac

🐢Sea Turtles🐢 Exploring more of the ocean this week by looking closely 🔦 at Sea Turtles in there habitat. Sensory: We started by using @safariltd Life Cycle of a Green Sea Turtle 🐢 For our sensory bin using @kineticsand sand for the beach and blue #orbeez for the ocean water. 🌊Sea Turtles inhabit shorelines of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans. They Migrate between foraging and nesting grounds, and seasonally to warmer waters. For Career Choice learning We talked about Marine Biologists: Watched a few short videos how Marine Biologists explore out in the field and take data. For hands on my daughter used her squirt stuff animal to observe with her magnifying glass. I gave her a clipboard 📋 to use to take notes as she observed. Using the chart on her board for the Anatomy of a turtle to help with spelling of what she wanted to take notes on her findings. Saving the Turtles: For fun we watched “A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures” Educational Animated Movie 🍿 about a sea turtle who hatches in 1959 spends 50 years travelling the world's oceans while they are changed by global warming. Discussion about how recycling ♻️ can help save the turtles. Story Time: “Curious George Discovers:Ocean” Hope you enjoyed our lesson, for more questions on what we did feel free to DM or leave comments #SeaTurtles #homeschoolmom #Oceanlearning #Homeschool #Movies #primarylearning

It's been a rough week. My grandpa passed away and it seems like we've been going non stop, with still more to do. I am behind on my work for a major project coming up, but there are other things taking priority right now. As I was getting ready for the day, I heard my oldest say, "it's Tuesday! Yes!" Oh dang! We're supposed to have poetry tea time today! Do I explain that we have too much to do, so we'll have to wait until next week? I decided against that. Instead, after our morning basket, I explained that we'd have tea time in town while running errands with my mom. I grabbed this collection of poems and we had a lovely reading over lunch. I am so in love with our homeschool life. I love that when life gets stressful I don't have to worry about extra pick up and drop off times, and hours long pick up lines. I don't have to worry about checking homework, signing reading logs, tests or progress reports. I am less stressed and more joyful in the midst of this hardship. And I am so thankful! #sahm #sahmlife #homeschoolmom #toddlermom #stepmomlife #stepmomstrong #wahm #motherhood #poetryteatime #homeschool #blendedhomeschool #hardtimes #grieving #unschoolinglife #unschooling #blessings #blessed #grateful #tendermercies #livingwithgrace

When we were showing our home I wanted to diffuse a blend that would be welcoming and immediately make people think that we’re home. The blend I created smelled of cookies baking in the oven!!! Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Nutmeg & Orange. Since I needed to be ready to go at a moments notice I decided to grab an empty 5ml bottle and premix my diffuse blend! Seriously why had it taken me this long to do this for my diffusers blends?! 🏡 What smells trigger memories of home?

I can’t even express how much I adore these little gals and their thirst for all things lovely. They found this precious grasshopper while helping themselves to the raspberry bush. We got out the supplies and they went straight to an art study. Listening to them converse and share their hypotheses is absolutely precious. Learning doesn’t have to look like work books or lessons. Give them beauty and a safe place for their unfettered curiosity.

“ I am thankful for my struggle because without it I wouldn’t have stumbled across my strength. “ . . Y’all. I just sat here and looked at this picture and weeped. Because this is just a reminder that I am able to pour into her, to teach her she is not defined by her differences, to instill a love of learning she has never had, to help her see and believe she is so smart, because she is.... so stinking smart. And it’s because of Monat that I can do that for her. It’s because I am able to work from home and absolutely tailor my job to our schedule, that I can give her this. It’s an absolutely priceless gift to be able to be home with her. #dyslexia #homeschoolmom

Here we go! I’m really excited for this year. We didn’t have the best year last year with all that was going on with Korrie. They definitely learned a lot still, lots about life! I’m starting the year with a few new ideas and the wonderful reminder to give myself grace. It’ll be another crazy year with adding in baby sister but another one full of more life experiences and still some book work. 😉 Deegan ended his reading/geography lesson with “Ah! It feels good to get some knowledge in my brain!” ❤️ #sandersfamhomeschool #deegandoes4thgrade #homeschool #homeschoolmom #thegoodandthebeautiful

Love hearing 👦🏻 read! 🥰The first is pleasure reading 📖 It’s a book from @chickfila actually 😆(Especially love hearing him read with expression)! The second is him during reading class today. I also love that I get to sit cross legged on the floor and 👦🏻 sits on my lap. (Something he initiated). I know these days won’t last forever, so I’m doing my best to soak it all in while I can! #myonlysonshine💙 #abekaacademy #boymomlife #teachthemyoung #homeschoolmom #backtoschool #readingwithphonics #todaysreadersaretomorrowsleaders

Watching my two oldest grow in the friendship and love towards each other brings such encouragement to my heart. They can be such opposites but their hearts are diving deeper in God and this unites them in ways nothing else can. They have eternal life together and that weaves a stronger bond as sisters and I’m so thankful for this. ✨ Keep pushing on and investing in your kids souls. This is more important than anything else and it’s a blessing to see fruit beginning to produce. . . . . #sisters #homeschoolmom #homeschoolfamily #homeschool #charlottemasonliving #familyblogger #getoutside #adventures #pnwonderland #oregon #hike #brooklynrose #baileysage #365homeschool #souls #invest #wildandfreechildren #wildandfreemom

Truth: I’m jealous of the confidence this one oozes. 💙 ⠀ ⠀ It never dawns on his little sweet, precious brain that someone wouldn’t LOOOOOOOOVE the mug he’s making here. ☕️ Or someone wouldn’t want to listen for hours as he regales stories about the latest Lego man he built. 🤗⠀ ⠀ Nope. Never crosses his mind. ⠀ ⠀ He just assumes that his work is wonderful and everyone will adore it. (And because he’s surrounded by a loving village, we do think he and his work are pretty wonderful. 💙😍) ⠀ ⠀ But I’m jealous in the business sense. What would it be like to confidently pitch ourselves? To just assume...everyone will love us and our products or services. I mean, why wouldn’t they??!! ⠀ ⠀ Here’s to taking a page out of JR’s book! Be confident. Assume we’ll be loved and sought after. ⠀ ⠀ I’m toasting you virtually...with my new coffee mug made by JR. ☕️ ⠀ ⠀ And for funsies...anyone drank or ate from the dishes lovingly crafted by your kiddos???? 😀 (Always an adventure. 🤣)

I’ve been so excited to learn about Mae Jemison(We have the same birthday! 🤩) and Katherine Johnson. Every year I make it a priority to teach my girls about black history not ONLY in February because it is just not logical for us. There are too many amazing inventors, scientists and all around Trail Blazers to fit in just 29 days (2020 is a leap year.lol) I teach my girls about various leaders in history but my priority are POC (People of Color) When I went to school the only POC prioritized were MLK, Rosa Parks, sometimes Ruby Bridges, Egyptian Pharaohs and Cleopatra. Now that I have this freedom I want to fill in those gaps in education that I did not receive going to school K-12. Knowing where you come from and what your heritage is a huge component in self confidence and identity especially for littles growing up. These are literally the formative years. How kids see themselves how other people view each other all start in these early years as kids. #teachdiversity #learnaboutothercultures 📚🌎❤️

I have 4 kiddos. 7, 6, (almost) 3 and 5 months. Our school room is also our playroom and guest room. Some days, I look around and want to grab the trash bag and head to the nearest donation box. Other days, like today, I look around filled with joy and appreciation for what we are able to do in this room. We learn here, we play here, our friends play here, our family visits us here. Some days it’s messy and some days it’s clean, but everyday is a day we grow here. #homeschoolmom #homeschool

“WE CAN DO HARD THINGS, MOM” -Henry 🔆 Yes we can baby boy! . . They say the best way to teach them is to show them. 📚 If we want our kids to learn that they can accomplish hard things, then we must show them the way 👉🏽 take risks, take chances, live those dreams even if it’s scary, or makes us pee our pants or sweat bullets. 😅 Even if people will judge us or have their opinion; even if we fail -🤔wait there’s no such thing as failure, just learning experiences. We need to show them the WAY that we are not afraid, we can pick ourselves up and keep going and OVERCOME HARD THINGS! . . . . . . .#homeschool #homeschooling #mamablog #lifestyleblogger #momlife #coastiewife #learningathome #boymom #entrepreneurship #influencer #momlife  #newmom #homeschoolmom #bossbabe #coastguardbear #ambassador #motherhood #mompreneur #ohheymama #momboss #unitedinmotherhood #mommyblogger #bellame #bossbabe #workfromhome #sahm #wildandfreechildren #homeeducation
