Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

What it looks like

Schooling In Our Home:  Homeschool

I have been homeschooling since the boys were in kindergarten.  In other words, none of my kids have ever been to school.  When they {the boys} were in about 3rd grade, someone at a store or doctor's office {can't remember, that's what happens when have this many kids, with each kid come loss of more memory} asked the boys where they went to school.  Parker piped up with "at the kitchen table."  And that was that! 

4th grade looks like this.

Or this!

8th grade sometimes looks like this.

And this.

Kindergarten looks like this!

Everyone does school on their own level, even when we share subjects like science and history.

 And math.

We do projects together!

Like making anatomically correct flower models from clay and paper.

Isabel needs you to notice the cute inch worm on the stem of hers!

we often display projects all over the house, like this flower dissection project.

And every now and then recess is really interesting!
Like when a funny fella shows up in the front yard.

And you get to take a walk with him up and down the street!

Until he flies away.

Isabel, your inch worm is absolutely adorable! He (or she) makes me smile! Thank you for making your mom share the inch worm with us! Did you know...when I was a little girl I used to ride on an inch worm?? For real! I was a VERY little girl! (No...I had a plastic inch worm toy.)
I think Isabel's inch worm would be right at home in Ryan's Lego Resort.
I love the picture of the kids chasing the bird!
