Last day with a Kindergartener

Lovebug and I continued our Mommy-Daughter weekend by spending Labor Day doing absolutely nothing except having fun.  I soaked up every minute I had with my little girl because the next day we were starting school and I wanted to enjoy my Kindergartener as long as I could!

Here is a little glimpse into our day, . . . → Read More: Last day with a Kindergartener

Science Detective Camp

A couple of weeks ago, Lovebug attended a “Science & Detective Camp” at a local children’s museum.  I had come across an ad for it in a local publication and I knew it would be perfect for her! She’s always been interested in detectives, spies, mysteries, and similar adventures.  This was a half-day camp for 5 . . . → Read More: Science Detective Camp

I cried over her misspelled words

Lovebug and I had a great day! We started the day with breakfast, and then some game time.  I wanted some one-on-one time with her because I knew I would be spending a lot of time unpacking today and she wouldn’t get as much of my focused attention.

First we played “I Can Do That!”. It’s . . . → Read More: I cried over her misspelled words

A very out-of-sync morning!

We had a really rough time during school yesterday morning.  Lovebug had a serious meltdown!  We were working on schoolwork this morning, and she mentioned (nicely) that she didn’t want to do something we were working on.  I asked her (nicely) “Why don’t you want to do that?”, and she lost it.  She started crying and . . . → Read More: A very out-of-sync morning!

Where was I?

I recently let an old domain where I hosted my old blog expire, so I was going through some old posts and reminiscing.  When I started this blog, I moved over some old posts from that blog.  I realized when I was going back through my old posts that I must have gotten distracted because I . . . → Read More: Where was I?

Bugs & Ice Cream

Tuesday was “Letter B” day here in school! After getting our other subjects done, we took science on the go, and headed to the local nature and science museum to watch the IMAX version of “Bugs! A Rainforest Adventure”. Just another reason I LOVE homeschooling! We got our work done in less than 2 hours and . . . → Read More: Bugs & Ice Cream

Homeschooling with SPD: Handwriting / Language Arts

One of the hardest things for me when teaching my daughter is the huge ability gap between different subjects, or even within a subject.

For example, she reads on at least a 3rd grade level.  It’s likely higher, but I haven’t ventured any higher because it’s hard enough finding age appropriate content in a chapter book.  Thankfully, . . . → Read More: Homeschooling with SPD: Handwriting / Language Arts

Slow start returning to school

After taking a couple weeks off of our regular school schedule, I was looking forward to getting back to it today.  It’s funny because it’s so easy to get out of our routine and then it’s hard to get back to it.  Yet, both Lovebug and I do much better when we have . . . → Read More: Slow start returning to school

A Colorful Day!

Lovebug and I have been having a lot of fun incorporating Christmas into our school work!  Many of our Christmas activities come from the 1+1+1=1 website! This is one of my all time favorite homeschooling/preschool/early elementary idea sites…EVER! I am so very thankful that she provides so much of her hard work for . . . → Read More: A Colorful Day!
