Welcome to my blog! It's a place to write about my life. It includes everyday things, but mostly it's a place to share our homeschooling journey.

Week four

It's hard to believe that we are in our 4th week of Kindergarten! It's going by so fast and we are getting into our groove. We normally spend about an hour on our sit down work and reading and then the rest of the day is just whatever. Everything from playing to chores.

I'm glad I decided to start kindergarten a year early. It's giving me a great chance to learn how to keep track of time and to see how to keep records. It's a lot easier when I'm not required to keep records.

There are of course things I like and things I don't like about this curriculum but I'm glad I went with them. Next year I'm thinking about using a different math program but I have some time to think about that.

We are both really enjoying the year. Hope it continues. :)

Happy Learning!!

Mama Bear has a life too *shocking*

I know, for me at least, I sometimes forget that I have a life outside my family. As a home based mama (I prefer Home Based Mama vs Stay at Home Mama. The difference? I don't stay home often!! LOL) my whole life seems to rotate around my son, my husband, my house.... And I know it should to a degree. But a happy mama makes a happy home. And I'm lucky- I have a wonderful husband who understands this. And that equals a Mama with a Life.

So what do I do other than my normal mama duty? Well, I'm a Sunday School teacher. I belong to the Hat Ministry at my church. I enjoy hanging out once or twice a month with friends. And sometimes, I just go out all by myself.

I know, my life my seem boring to some people. But it's not. I'm doing what I want to do. I stay at home with my son. I homeschool him. You pair this with my outside life, I think I live a full life.
