This year is full of lots of changes, it is my first time home schooling three kids, and first time doing it with twins in tow. It is a lot to manage, but we are headed into our third week of school and seem to be finding our daily rhythm. I have been utilizing the… Continue reading Habitat School House and Our Letter Adventures!
I'm sitting here trying to write a blog about back to school, but I keep writing and deleting, writing and deleting and eventually I just say "forget it!" Honestly, life is just a lot right now, and I'm trying to be this amazing resource of encouragement and information about homeschooling and unschooling and everything in… Continue reading Back to school, back to reality.
I'd be lying if I said we've had the best year of home schooling. Moving, having two toddlers, and being pregnant with twins has seriously thrown a wrench into our normal flow. There has been almost no "adventuring" in the last five months, and I have struggled to even make it through each day. I… Continue reading Homeschooling through a twin Pregnancy… (35 weeks and counting)
I have been MIA from blog land for quite a while. This has been by far one of the most hectic/exciting/exhausting summers I have ever had. We have found out we are having twins, made it through the first trimester fatigue while packing and moving. We've been evacuated from our new home because of a… Continue reading Update!

Since this was my first year of home schooling, I wasn't sure how our summer would look. Would we still do our mini lessons? Would we just continue adventuring? Would… Continue reading Planning for First Grade
Sweet summer time is upon us here in Southern California. I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. My inner Oregonian screams for relief from the ridiculous temperatures, and honestly, every month here is basically Summer. I'm like one of those scenes from a movie. That character wandering lost through the desert, dehydrated… Continue reading “Summer Time and the Livin’s Easy”
Living in Southern California is amazing. There are mountains, deserts, beaches, and everything else in between. Living by the beach means so many beautiful places to visit and fun things to do. However, there are no giant trees, no perfectly fresh mountain air, and no pretty wildflowers growing alongside a winding mountain road. Heading to… Continue reading Big Bear Adventure
It happens every year like clock work. I'm dying to breathe in the fresh mountain air, drive on a road with no stop lights, and see more sheep than people. I'm dying to go home. Home for me is a tiny little town in Oregon, by tiny I mean like not one actual stop light… Continue reading Growing up Oregon Style
