CREATE A SET SCHEDULE
I know I know, I always tell people that I love the freedom of not having a schedule with home schooling, but I’m not talking about a daily schedule, I am talking about an activity schedule. We spent a lot of time swimming, at the pool, at the park, at the movies, at field trips, having picnics, etc. But last year was all over the place. Being spontaneous was awesome, but I want a little more of a routine. So I’ve talked to the girls and we’ve come up with somewhat of a schedule.
Monday–Math and Science Day
Wednesday–Pool or Park Day
With every year that passes, the girls interests expand. They have very different personalities. This year, I am diving into their passions head first. Zoey is really into all things girly. Hair, makeup, fashion, beauty, baking cupcakes, doing art, etc. Alexa is the opposite, she is into nature, cooking, science, and astrology. Such fun subjects! So I plan on spending Fridays exploring their passions.
OMG! My kids are really into science and experiments, so I ordered a microscope for them. It was delivered today and we are absolutely in LOVE! We looked at so many different things. Dirt, leaves, grass, hair, salt, sugar, flower petals, etc. I can’t wait to write a full post about it because I know we will be using this microscope a LOT this year.

Last year I did several photography exercises with the kids. They really enjoy it, but Alexa is really good with the camera. I recently purchased a tripod, and a 50mm 1.8 lens, so we will be taking our photography lessons up a notch and I absolutely can not wait.

Zoey, my youngest, is obsessed with all things girly. She loves fashion, and makeup so much and she said she wants to do more makeup. I love everything about this and I will be helping her practice makeup with the help of my favorite ladies on youtube. I know she will love this because she loves doing her own makeup. I can’t wait to keep you updated!
I am so excited to start this year! We will start our school right after we get back from our Wedding!
Homeschooling sounds so interesting, very different to what I imagined! I bet it's amazing getting to have so much freedom to be able to choose what you want to do with your kids
