Super Birthday

Monday, September 21, 2020

Over the weekend we celebrated two super kids! Our littlest babes had birthdays last week, and we had one superhero party that was so much fun. Our friends and family came, we had a bouncy house, a piƱata, and everyone got a cape and mask. It was a great time. 

I really didn't take many pictures, because we were too busy having fun...and the kids would hardly hold still. I think we deserve some kind of trophy for pulling off a group picture.

 We have been doing this homeschool thing for a few weeks now, and we are really enjoying it. We are still trying to find a good rhythm...but what is that even when you have two toddlers running around. Typically we do school work while the littles nap. That gives Row and I some good quality time to do some learning. While the little ones are awake, we do stories, crafts, and sensory fun...and recess! A trip to the park is always on the schedule! If you are looking for some good homeschool resources, I have linked them below.

We don't really have a designated spot for homeschool. Sometimes we do our work on the couch or at the island, and that seems to work. However, I wanted to have a little space where he could sit and do some independent work. I have plans for a more official learning space, but for now I set it up on our little table right outside the kitchen. 

It is the most simple little setup...some words that he has been working on and the vowels, plus a diffuser for calming/focus oils. Oh, and I added pumpkins, because that felt necessary.

Homeschool Favorites

Home and Haven Fall Bundle: We are excited about these little lessons! I have them all scheduled out and we start next week. I am so ready for all fo the fall things.

Simple Magic Prints: My friend, Casey, makes these adorable prints with sight words, shapes, days of the week...seriously all the things. 

The Good and the Beautiful: This is the curriculum that we are using for math and language arts. We love it! I know that we have only been doing homeschool for a few weeks, but we have several friends that have used this curriculum for years. It was highly recommended.

We have also been taking advantage of our local library. I check out books every week. Some that we read together, some that are easier for Rowan to read on his own, and some that are educational. 

That is all I have for now. I hope you are all having a great school year!

Crew is three! How did that happen? Where has time gone? It seems like yesterday! He is so excited and has been for weeks. We have been planning a little superhero party, and he won't stop talking about his Hulk cake with candles...that he has no intention of sharing. SOOOO, here is a BUNCH of photos of Crew doing what he loves...wearing "papa pants" and playing in the dirt. 

I cannot imagine life without this curly haired cutie! He is a good mix of super sweet and totally ornery & I wouldn't have him any other way. 

Happy Birthday, Crew!
