Howdy, ya’ll! Buffalo T is helping me introduce our first Collage Friday post for the 2014-2015 homeschool year! I hope you are off to a great start in your homeschool! You can see more about our Classical Curriculum and our Homeschool Room and our First day pictures. I can’t believe I have a Kindergartener/Abecedarian and a Tot-schooler! Gracious, where has the time gone?
First, I’m delighted to be featured over at The Mommy Mess today where I’m sharing my confession that sometimes, I want to quit. I know, it all looks like sunshine and roses, but I do try to share the real moments, too. Be forewarned, you should probably not read my confession while drinking coffee, or anything else for that matter. We don’t want you spitting all over your keyboard 🙂
Now, for our Collage Friday fun!
Up at the top you can see Mr. J has been teaching Mr. T all the LEGO ropes. Mr. T picked out this super fun LEGO kit off Amazon with some money Grandmother sent to him. Then we have our KiwiCrate! (There’s a review coming soon!) Seeing how much he lit up opening the box, I know you’ll be checking back to see what he did once he really got into it 🙂 Next you can see some school room fun where Mr. F is supervising Mr. T. They have been doing lots of pattern blocks together, both the beginner and the advanced.
In the middle is Mr. T’s absolute favorite part of math right now. Sum Swamp is a really fun game that includes addition and subtraction and goes from 0-12. Perfect for our first few weeks of school. In the middle is my “back to homeschool” teacher mug and my bin of super fun tutor supplies for our Classical Conversations community. I’m just a little excited. And on the end is a fabulous Trim Healthy Mama adaptation, a butterscotch version of the Special Agent brownie cake. We have all been enjoying the new recipes and I love being in the kitchen making healthy food for my family. THM is a wonderful addition to my Plexus and regular fitness routine.
On the bottom, you can see our last 2 days. Poor Mr. T picked up some sort of bug and has shared it. Of course. I have two snotty nosed puny boys and I’m beat from Mr. F’s all night play fest. So we are ending this weeks learning fun a little early. Saturday I’m hosting my first Sole Hope party and I can’t wait to share that with you next week!
Kiwi Crate is offering a free trial between now and the end of August! All you pay is $3.95 shipping for a fun activity that your little ones are going to love! I had to share because of all the fun Mr. T is having with his Kiwi Crate!
For “puny” folks you sure have been busy this week! I love your Tigger mug. That would serve as a great reminder to keep my attitude right in the mornings. 🙂
Thrilled to have you over today, Lara! Thanks for sharing your post! your home looks like a wonderful place to learn. XO
Thanks for linking today, Lara! I know you will have a great year in CC. I wish I would have started sooner, so I’m watching your boys vicariously. Your director rocks, too. 🙂
Hope everyone gets to feeling better soon!
