day one.  baby A is adjusting well to his bouncy seat and swing.  these are two things we use to keep him occupied during school.  or i'm holding/feeding/wearing him :)

dubs is PUMPED to be involved in school this year!  i'm finding a lot of fun ideas on pinterest.
and can you see the workboxes in the background?  i've figured a way to make it work for our family and i reallllly like them!


  1. What a great looking group of students! It is obvious that you all have a lot of fun!

  2. I am so impressed. The kiddos all look so cute for their first day of homeschool. I think you are giving them such a gift. I don't think i could do it but I am so impressed by those who do homeschool.

  3. I know you've probably been asked this a million times, but do you do made up names for the kids to keep it private?

    I, too, commend you on homeschooling! I could never do it, but love the idea! I was home-schooled in 3rd grade (I'm 33 years old now) and HATED it so it kind of ruined my whole thinking on it. BUT, things have changed so much in regards to that since then.

  4. How do you use your work boxes?

  5. Ah, blessings on your school year. My girls are grown now, but we loved homeschooling. (most days anyway)


  6. I love your schoolroom and I am seriously in awe. I would love to know more- I think it's amazing you homeschool. It's so rare here in the UK. Sx

  7. Such a beautiful family...hope you and that sweet baby are doing well!

  8. Best wishes for your school year! We started work boxes as well this year. Can you tell me more about the fire baskets on top? They look very functional and tidy. Thx!

  9. How fun! It looks like you are off to a great start to the school year. Love the photos!

  12. have a great schoolyear with the kiddos! i like the way you take their pictures the first day. and how cute is your daughter carrying around the baby! love it!!

  13. this is our first year of homeschool and we're very excited!
    i just have a silly question...i am obsessed with names and what people name their kids. i always thought your kids had such interesting names, but am i correct that those are not their real names? if so, is that just for privacy? i so want to know the new baby's name! :)

  14. Your kids are tall! And beautiful. And happy. You are such a good mama.

  15. love those shots of your kids....
    we sent our oldest child to 7th grade this year at a wonderful, small, covenant school...LOVING it.

  16. Hi!

    May I ask where could I get those? :)
    Thanks a LOT!!
