Just what this mama needed, some sunny outdoor time and sweet company. Baby girl
Just what this mama needed, some sunny outdoor time and sweet company. Baby girl was the most adored by all the bigs, and it just made my heart melt. God has a such a great way of reminding us that he takes so much pleasure and delight in His kids, gosh. If I feel this way about mine, I can’t imagine how much joy He gets out of His own— out of us— just for being His. Created in His image, firstly. Then redeemed and repurposed and living in renewal, even when we don’t realize it. Even in our brokenness. Even when we feel only the best versions of ourselves are truly worthy. What a lie! We are shown deep deep grace in our very mistakes and failures, He cheers us on like a proud mom and dad when a toddler stumbles back up after a fall. Oh little ones, may you be reminded that your worth is not based on your “bestness”, you are loved and delighted in now, as you are, learning still.

Grabbed a quick picture before we started lessons today. (Look at those faces 😂 they were worried the dog had one of their dolls) On the table: their math clipboards, #montessoriinspired golden beads, our math curriculum, and a snack of course. They have been really into math lately, so of course they requested we start lessons with some practice problems. It’s like they go through these interest cycles where they latch onto a particular subject and can’t get enough! And of course, any task is infinitely better with a good snack. I’ve noticed that more often than not, we are snacking while learning. 🙃 Today, hummus and pita chips were the perfect companions for some @simplycharlottemason math work. #homeschool#homeeducation#homeschoolmom#homeeducator#charlottemason#charlottemasonliving#simplycharlottemason#math#family#familytable#homeschoolers#montessori

“It’s not the big plans we make, it’s the small things we do each day, the tiny steps we make.” This encouragement taken from the talk Cindy Rollins did last night. I walked away from her talk last night with my heart full. 🌱 The oak trees they are standing under here blew me away today. Those barefoot cuties are checking out (gently I hope) a very large earthworm. They probably observed more here about that worm than I ever could teach them by simply trying to explain to them about a worm. None the less, tomorrow we’ll take out all our books on worms 💚💚💚 . . . . . . . . #earthworms#oaktrees#barefoot#barefootinspring#vernalequinox#wildandfree#charlottemason#charlottemasonirl#cindyrollins#naturestudy

On Wednesday we explored the grassy empty lot down the street, and the greenbelt
On Wednesday we explored the grassy empty lot down the street, and the greenbelt close by, which has a pool in the center this time of year. We all put on boots, but even with my legs and feet encased in rubber, I felt quite nervous about what might be hiding in the knee-high grass! Of course, I didn't let on to the kids that I was imagining snakes, leeches, or worse. In the end all we saw were ladybugs, butterflies, and ducks. 🐞🦋🦆 On Thursday we picnicked with our #natureclub. We read a book by Jane Yolen called On Duck Pond, and were able to identify several different types of ducks at the pond. The kids were thrilled to learn that a wood duck likely made the nest they had discovered in the crook of a tree. We enjoyed the beautiful weather and, as always, the company of our friends. . . . #1000hoursoutside#homeschoolmom#homeschoollife#charlottemason#janeyolen#onduckpond#sailorisabella#quillenjude

There was reading, singing, dancing, jumping, copywork, playing, baking, snuggling and a lot of love during this #wonderyearsbycynthia session. Just like a typical homeschool for them. Exactly what this Wonder Years homeschool series is about.

It has been a season for us Southern Cali folk with more rain than we’ve had in a long while, and I’m not hearing too many complaints. It might be a different story if we rarely saw the sun, but this is Southern CA, and we know the sun will come. But for this week, a lesson on clouds couldn’t be better timed. Thank you, #tomiedepaola and @animalsintime !

I get ask a lot about the kids reading/phonics curriculum. But today we are going to focus on what I use for (Monique) when it comes to phonics. So a couple of months ago I decided to look for a phonics workbook that would get her strong in the basic phonic rules. I found @carsondellosa homeworkbooks phonics for kindergarten. (I ended up getting explode the code) This book was not to teach her phonics, it was more a fun workbook that involve phonics lol. She loved the book and she finished it in less then a week. She loved it so much I decided to purchase the 1 grade one. The kindergarten book covers beginning consonant sounds, Short vowels sounds and sight word recognition. Super easy book just read the instructions and let the child get to work. For the 1 grade book it focuses on beggining and ending consonants, Blends and digraph, Long and short vowel sounds and word families. These book are definitely not the best book out there to reenforce phonics. If you are looking for a book that does I recommend the explode the code series. (Which both kids are working on and I prefer more then these book) This book is for fun and not as a mandatory workbook. She has it in her bin and she can take it out and do whenever she wants. No rush lol. #carsondellosa#phonics#learningtoread#level1reader#homeschooldays#alphaphonics#homeschool#homeeducation#education#homeschoollife#earlylearning#montessori#homeschoolfamily#family#charlottemason#teachersofinstagram#explodethecode#phonicsworkbook

👀 #fesoleclubthelemon 👀 Final critique for this week! Have a great weekend! 😄 Perhaps you'll have more time this weekend for one more go before APRIL'S PROMPT comes out! #getexcited! : 🍋1- @mygoldenlee welcome to the virtual Fésole Club! Well-executed shadow and highlight. Very crisp composition with where your paint spaces end. : 🍋2- --- Guest critique--- "The reflection is a little bit too foreshortened but the highlighting is nice and book background matches. The shadow is a bit more purple than how I see it. Shape of lemon is good. Shadows are good. The reflection is a bit too yellow and might need some more brown. Lemon’s equator is subtle but accurate. Otherwise it’s pretty good. Mid values could be less transparent. Background needs a bit more consistency." 😁😉👌 : 🍋3- --- Guest critique --- " Same issue (I have it too) with background brushstrokes, but that teal color is so appealing! I don't see a darker end of the lemon in the painting. All in all, it's very nice to look at. I really like these colors together!" 😘🤔👀 * * 🍋🍋🍋HEY- Did I miss anyone?

"Every three or four weeks, the child should also memorize a poem and recite it
"Every three or four weeks, the child should also memorize a poem and recite it to you. Memorization and recitation of poetry is an important part of the reading process; it exercises the child’s memory, stores beautiful language in his mind, and gives him practice in speaking aloud (early preparation for the rhetoric stage). Aim for memorization of at least four to eight short poems during each school year. Pick poems that the child has read and enjoyed, either during his literature studies or his reading practice... These poems don’t have to be tied to the progression of literature from ancient to modern; let him memorize anything that he likes. Make a recording of either you or the child reading the poem, and allow him to listen to it over and over again. When he can recite the poem along with the recording, ask him to stand up and recite for you all by himself. Many children don’t like this—not because they can’t memorize, but because they don’t like to be watched while they recite. Let them practice in front of the mirror or in front of their stuffed animals. Then have them stand up and, with their hands and feet still, recite the poem in front of you. When they can do that, bring in an extra audience member: your spouse, a grandparent, a neighbor. You’re now building public-speaking skills." (Susan Wise Bauer, The Well-Trained Mind) Little Miss memorized a poem called "The Caterpillar" by Christina G. Rosetti found in the #FirstLanguageLessons Level 1: Brown and furry  Caterpillar in a hurry,  Take your walk  To the shady leaf, or stalk. May no toad spy you,  May the little birds pass by you;  Spin and die,  To live again a butterfly. It's a beautiful first poem to have any child memorize. #TheClassicalPreschool#ClassicalChristianHomeschool

A Royal Night Out--this was my laundry folding show this week. 😏 This is NOT one to watch with the family, but I love so many things about this film. The fact that I love the Queen anyway, and it's so lovely to see her as she might have been in her youth. The fact that it's based on real events--Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret mingling with common folk "incognito," to celebrate the end of the war. The peek into what it would have been like to be on the streets of London--or celebrating at the Ritz--on this historic day. And oh, what it would have been for them! Two princesses out on the town. The girls' clothes and hair! And I can't forget the sweet romance that develops between Princess Elizabeth and airman Jack--absolutely sigh worthy. I found myself tearing up in parts. Have you seen this movie? What did you think?

What do you praise more??? • Your child’s success, or their journey of persistence and determination. Studies show if we praise solely for a job well done or a task well executed, we are instilling a fixed mindset in our children. A fix mindset leads to learning and growth paralysis. A child with a fixed mindset is less likely to try something new or different due to fear of failure. When you give healthy praise at different points of your child’s journey (even failures) they develop a growth mindset. They see their individual academic worth not based on immediate success, but rather their effort put forth and eagerness to push through challenge. I urge you friends, validate your children in ways that develop perseverance and commitment. Cheer them along amongst their failures... they will develop a sort of superpower to face things head on and keep growing! • We received the most amazing subscription box from @littleheirloombooks. They send you a monthly children’s book along with something from a small shop. @lovelanedesigns makes this adorable cape that my kids love!!

We have been using @beautifulfeetbooks#aroundtheworldwithpicturebooks curriculum and have been enjoying everything about it. At the end of each country we are discovering, we prepare and enjoy that country’s cuisine. It has become a time of great conversation, enchanted learning, and good eating. This was from our Egyptian study and so far our favourite. I can’t wait to look at it again once the little ones are a few years older.

You guys... Instagram is so filled with beautiful flatlays and inspiration, it can be easy to compare ourselves to others and think we aren't doing enough. But to me, Instagram is a collection. It's a collection of moments... REAL moments. Not every moment is perfect (nothing ever is), but these tiny squares are a collection of moments that I wish to remember. And this picture is exactly that! . 'Wait! Don't pick it up yet!' . We spent the afternoon with my mom today. It was a sweet time that left me relishing in good conversations and lots of maple syrup making. . After we enjoyed creating these adorable little birds from the April issue of @rootedchildhood, my mom started picking up our mess (I'm a messy creator BTW 🤣), and that's when I saw it. I asked her to stop picking up the table so I could snap a picture. . This is no perfect flatlay. It's #thereallifeflatlay that speaks to 'moment collectors' and 'memory makers.' It's a tribute to the beautiful mess of motherhood and homeschooling. It's MY moment and one I want to treasure. ❤️ And I hope it blesses your heart as well. . I do have a tiny confession to make though... I slid the cover off the embroidery thread because when I snapped the first picture, it was reflecting so badly it was distracting! 🤪 . #memorymaker#momentcollector#makingmemories#crafting#momtime

Friday introductions!

Hi I’m Monica! 👋🏼 I am wife to @themrthankyou of 8 years.
Friday introductions! Hi I’m Monica! 👋🏼 I am wife to @themrthankyou of 8 years. Mama to two boys 4.5 & 2.5 💙💙 {w/ baby girl due to join us this Aug 🌈💝} My homeschooling journey began back in 2009 {pre-kid & pre-marriage} when I stumbled upon a blog called #theunschoolbus which led me down a rabbit hole of John Holt books and YouTube videos. It was refreshing and encouraging to learn about a different philosophy of learning. When our now 4.5 YO was 1 we took a music class and one of the moms in the class was asking the instructor for recommendations of preschools on the area. The instructor replied, “Now I wouldn’t actually ‘recommend’ pre-school, I also I understand there are different circumstances and if preschool is a support for those circumstances, my recommendation would be a Waldorf preschool.” ...which led me to researching the Waldorf philosophy. We took a couple of mom & me classes at the local Waldorf school and I am grateful for all that I learned about creating rhythm in our home. I liked the idea of adding some Waldorf-ness to our home environment. Right about then, I also discovered #wildandfree which led me to the @athomepodcast and for a while I can remember following a lot of #charlottemason accounts. Then, for some reason while cleaning up my instafeed, I unfollowed all the CM accounts. {I thought #charlottemasonliving was like some style of home decor.} 😂 I stayed in the Foresty/Unschooly/Waldorf lane for a couple more years, but always felt like it wasn’t exactly right for our family. There was something missing, it began to feel like I was trying to fit us into something that wasn’t our natural place. The Charlotte Mason philosophy waved itself at me a few times and I dismissed it, until a conversation with our music teacher {different music teacher} and she said, “You know... I think you’d really like Charlotte Mason. Have you looked into that at all?” I admitted, “I have totally been holding Charlotte Mason out at arms length because something about it felt ridged to me coming from my starting point of unschooling.”

Cultura materna: o homeschool me ajudou a resgatar um sonho de infância , me ajudou a lembrar e a reviver a alegria de desenhar. Poder voltar a aprender e a aperfeiçoar um pouco , e principalmente me divertir no processo. Desenhar me faz tão bem. A cultura materna é uma benção. Faça algo por aí mesma, resgate um talento do passado, faça algo relaxante ou não faça nada, mas faça por um momento e para você, para reabastecer as forças. Ás vezes eu também não faço nada, mas geralmente estou fazendo alguma coisa como podem ver as milhares de pessoas que me.seguem em várias redes sociais diferentes e as mais próximas que me seguem em todas e concluem que eu sou hiperativa hahahaha. Bom, eu gosto da cultura materna não só pelo prazer e por me relaxar e me fazer uma mãe melhor e com mente mais fresca para meus filhos, mas também porque ao me superar e aprender eu relembro a alegria que isto me traz, e posso ajudar meus filhos a encontrarem esta alegria ao superar os próprios desafios. #sketch#draw#learning#desenhar#mothercukture#culturamaterna#charlottemasonliving#charlottemason#sextou#studying

More critique for #fesoleclubthelemon... : : 🍋1- What a nice fluid contour outline with your ink! The colors are all complimenting each other so well and are in a pretty even wash. Great noticing how the bottom of the lemon touches the table. Did you see any other slightly different colors on the lemon’s surface? Look for those next time, they may surprise you. : 🍋2- Here are some patient young drawers! This composition is very nice- Where the book meets the table has a very nice weight to where the lines meet and it helps my eye center on the nice lively lemon with a very well-executed highlight. Did you happen to see any shadows on the table or book around the lemon? : 🍋3- The lemon’s shape and and details here show careful observation. What happens if you take a slightly damp but clean brush and apply it to a wet spot of yellow paint? Try it on any areas where you see any white spots on your lemon next time- you’re in for a treat! : 🍋4- This painter observed well and did excellent work to mix colors. Her green is a very pleasing shade, especially with the warm brown of the table underneath. Well done. Would she ever show me some original design work with her brush? I would love to see some of those types of drawings from this family. 👍 : 🍋5- Good work with doing the color tinting swatches- that is taxing work, but so worth it! I wonder if you could get a second pair of eyes on your outline work before doing washes? Or step back yourself and check for proportions & where spaces and shapes are meeting each other. Well done noticing and rendering that reflection of the lemon on the table! : : #thefesoleclub#wgcollingwood#johnruskin#theartofseeing#observationalpowers#observationalskills#charlottemason#charlottemasondrawing

It is extremely important to me that my children can hold their own values without judging or separating from those who don’t hold the same values we do. Today we went to the skate park and I threw my darlings into the park with kids their age and older who were cussing, fighting and smokin dope. I was SO proud of them for maintaining a loving and engaged presence there. They were not daunted, not judgemental, and didn’t change their behavior at all. It was amazing to witness. When we got in the car one of them said “ Thanks for not taking us home when you saw the kind of people who were there mom” they were shocked to learn I knew exactly what the crowd would be 😂 . . . . #Homeschool#happyhomeschoolers#homeschoolcollective#homeeducators#365homeschool#wildandfreechildren#welleducatedheart#thegoodandthebeautiful#homeschoolmoment#homeschoolmamas#homeschoolcollective#homeschooled ##homeschooler#homeschoolmomlife#charlottemason#classicalhomeschool#largefamily

Her grubby hands and a green shield bug. We seriously need to get our nature journals back into circulation. We keep finding lots of wonderful things in the garden, we need to start keeping track. . . Penelope and her best friend also found the cracked egg shell belonging recently hatched rook this week. We have a rookery very close to our house and it was great to be able to identify the egg shell as belonging to the correct bird. Since moving to the country my eyes are far more aware of the creatures and plants around me, and I want to keep learning about what is living around me. 🍃

African exhibits and more. Thankful for these learning opportunities. 💗 "But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind." Job 12: 7-10

6 months with Meadow Fawn and she’s smitten with her brothers. We have been doing a little bit of baby led weaning finger foods, but she isn’t much into food yet which is a big difference from the boys who were eager to put there new teeth to good use at 5 months old. I’m not concerned or complaining one bit and soaking in our time nursing + when she is ready she will jump right in along with her brothers. I love these three . . . #wildandfreechildren#childhoodunplugged#magicofchildhood#homeschool#momofboys#boymom#theplayfulpioneers#charlottemason#nothingisordinary#letthembelittle#vsco#littleandbrave#slowliving#flashesofdelight#clickinmoms#photographer#photography#momlife#motherhood#vscocam#instagood#bestofvsco#thatsdarling#spinabifida#specialneeds#letthekids#waldorf#waldorfhomeschooling#6monthsold#siblings

I walked out of the bedroom after putting Ellie down to a nap to find the toy box completely disassembled. 😳 When I asked him what happened, Caleb responded, “I wanted to see how it works!” 🛠 Raising curious and creative kids means learning to be ok with them taking things apart just to see how they work! . 🛠 It took a little teamwork {and hunting down misplaced screws 🙈} but the boys figured out how to reattach the hinges and put everything back together! . 🛠 It’s not always easy for this mama to let go of control and allow them this freedom, but when I do I’m always amazed and impressed by the skills they learn! 💗 #thisishomeschool#wildandfree#unschooling

I have had a rather dull winter. Lacking in my usually outdoor energy and feeling the cold more so than ever (I am sure due to my ever advancing years.....), we haven't been on our regular Long Walks for several months. However, I have a feeling that is all going to change after we have been totally enchanted and delighted (if slightly concerned at times) following the Browne children, their ruckers filled with hard boiled eggs and legs that seem to be able to walk miles and miles, keeping spirits high with whistling merry tunes. And we were so missing the scenery of the beautiful fells, we decided to unfold our map and follow them. There in spirit, if not in boots. Rather! #homeschool#homeeducation#vintagehomeschool#geography#lakedistrict#thelakes#walk#read#readaloud#mapreading#charlottemason#charlottemasoninspired#childhoodunplugged

A glimpse into our #homeschool this week. We began a #naturestudy on #butterflies 🦋 and enjoyed some #classicliterature 📚 📖 the weather was perfect to enjoy a walk around #oakpointnaturepreserve too! 🍃 Today, six Painted Lady Butterfly caterpillars arrived and we can’t wait to see them transform over the next couple weeks! . . . . #homeschoolmama#kindergartenathome#springtimeintexas#unhurriedhomeschooler#charlottemason#naturallearning#reading#poetry#unstructuredplay

We girls love when Daddy comes home from work a little early. The weather was perfectly lovely this afternoon. We sighted robins, red-headed woodpeckers and hawks. We are thankful for our relationship with my parents that has allowed us to live here peacefully for the last 10 months. We close on our house Tuesday and I can't wait to discover the birds in our new backyard. 🐦🌳

A fun sketch I did of the old teakettle we hung beneath our eaves. I’ve seen wrens nest in pockets of a work shirt hanging outside. My friend had them nest in her work gloves. This tea kettle must’ve felt like the ritz. Be aware of all the birds who will be looking for nesting sites soon. Clean out combs and brushes and tuck the hair into a holey, old sock. Hang the sock in a sheltered area. Kids love seeing the birds making nests with their hair. #birds#birdlovers#birdsinthegarden#birdwatching#birdfriends#montessori#steiner#waldorf#charlottemason#kidsinthegarden#projectsforkids#homeschoolers#homeschool#homeschoolmoms#projectsfornaturelovers#gooutside#playoutside

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ + nature journal + commonplace book + calendar of firsts + book of centuries ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These are a small sampling of the rich methods Charlotte Mason recommends for the practice of “keeping” — one of the best ways to internalize and capture new ideas and information into your heart and mind. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It can easily become overwhelming to keep track of the logistics and supplies for all these journals and notebooks - which is why I was overjoyed to find @junipergrovejournals — by adjusting the concept of a traveler’s notebook, they have developed a unique and beautiful way to gather all your keeping practices in one place! I decided to try it out for myself and purchased this gorgeous leather edition with the added wallet and zipper pouch in a pop of floral! I opted for the customizable seven-insert set with the following pieces: weekly and monthly calendars, to-do lists, devotional journal, commonplace book, nature journal, and mother’s journal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can see my full unboxing video and hear my weird squeaks of glee on my IGTV channel! I love it so much and have already made plans with the boys to invest in journals for them soon! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a homeschooling mama with a creative business, multigenerational home to run, and a large Wild + Free group to coordinate... my ADD brain needs this tool and I’m excited to have it guide more intentionality into my Mother Culture plans! More on that soon with another free resource! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #charlottemason#charlottemasoneducation#charlottemasonliving#homeschooling#wildandfreechildren#amblesideonline#naturejournal#commonplacebook#keepingcompanycm#charlottemasonpoetry#homeschoolcollective#homeschoolingbyheart#homeschoolplanner#homeschoolplanning#junipergrovejournals#travelersnotebook#motherculture#motherculturemarch

⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ We struggle with math. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ There. I said it. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ We don’t struggle in that he can’t DO math or doesn’t KNOW math. He can and does. In fact he LOVES math. He gets hung up on the follow through. He sees the problem and immediately knows the answer. Having him work the steps is the struggle. He doesn’t see the point. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’m REALLY hoping Life of Fred* will help his math brain slow down a bit so as we get higher up he can appreciate the steps. Here’s to hoping. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This switch makes me so nervous! It isn’t how I learn. It feels weird to make a switch this late in the year. I’m really outside my comfort zone. But there is beauty in that, too. I’ll be stretched and will grow and learn right along side him. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I hope you all have a great weekend and are given the opportunity to step out of YOUR comfort zone-even just a bit. 🌸⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ *We have the rest of the series, they are squirreled away in/under his bed somewhere.🤷🏻‍♀️

So sweet to look back on stolen moments with the kids when they were little. This idyllic moment was not the norm- but they happened, usually when I least expected! So grateful that I took the time- in spite of whatever else may have been happening that day- to enjoy a peaceful moment with my son. www.tmharts.com
