    Free Father’s Day Printable

    When my kids were littler we would often fill out a paper that had little interview questions for them to answer about their dad for Father’s Day. It was cute and the papers are a sweet keepsake. Now they are getting older and the answers to their questions aren’t as cute and funny as they used to be. So, this year I decided to create an alternative Father’s Day printable. The one I created has some prompts and then room to either write or draw (or both!) their answer. I would love to show their final (adorable) results here but I’ll refrain in case their father hops over and sees…

    Forces and Movement Science Study

    I’m going to assume everyone has at least one school subject that is not exactly their forte. Science is one of mine. But I also have kids that really enjoy science . . . Thankfully my husband also likes science and was interested in making a Forces and Movement Study for us – complete with fun and simple experiments!     Today I wanted to show you inside the study!     You can grab a copy of the Forces and Movement Study here!

    our SUMMER HOMESCHOOL PLAN & a look inside the units we’ll be studying

    We tend to be flexible in our homeschool and don’t “do school” five days a week. Our more laidback homeschool approach means that we are also never really “off”. So while the summers may look a little different, we are still learning. And this summer we have a couple of different studies we plan on doing. Okay, here’s a look inside our summer homeschool plans for this year!       LINKS The Explorers Research Unit is 50% off until June 2nd! And the Forces and Movement Study is on sale until June 15th! The Kids Reading Journal and A Line a Day Journals are also on sale until June…

  • A Line A Day Journal for Kids and Mom - great for memory keeping

    A Line a Day Journals – perfect for writing practice and memory keeping

    For the last few years I’ve been keeping a Line a Day Journal. It’s just a simple book where you write one or two things from the day and each page has room for a few years worth of entries. The first year it’s a little boring but by the second year you can start reading what you did on that day the year before and it gets fun. I’ve been enjoying keeping a journal like this so back in the fall I decided to get my kids to start one as well.     I wanted to get going on it right away so I didn’t want to order…

    Bird Watching Journal – A Printable Nature Study Journal

    Every spring I get really excited about birds. I never realize how many birds have migrated and left us until they start to come back. Hearing and seeing the different kinds of birds return is a sign that spring is really here. It’s the feeling of anticipation for the warmer days to come. In the last couple of years I have made a point of paying attention to the birds that I see and trying to figure out what kinds of birds they are. To be honest, growing up my parents used to have a bird identifying book by the back deck door (along with a pair of binoculars) and…
