I saw this on my friend's facebook and thought this was a great idea. Our measuring spoons are always in different places. This way they are always in the same place. It has been so nice. You can buy the hanging clip almost anywhere ( Walmart, Target, Grocery stores etc. ).
I put them on the lower cabinets so our children can reach them. 
I know this is a simple organization tip but a really good one:)

Our son loves to fish. He has been in a fishing club with our homeschool group this year. But every time he catches a fish I think of this verse: 

Matthew 4:19
"Come, follow me", Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people."

First Jesus was saying "Follow Him", Do you want to follow the ways of the Jesus? 

Second, He wants those who know him to be fishers of men. This is the commission to all believers. Sharing the gospel with all you come in contact with. Planting seeds into peoples hearts and letting Jesus do the rest. Pouring into others and sharing your story( Testimony). When you are real with people they will listen to your story which then lead into to sharing the gospel. Its really just sharing the love of Jesus in your life that will change their hearts for Jesus!!!!

So we are Called to share this gospel with EVERYONE!!!!!

Thank you Jesus!!!!

Jesus Loves You!!!!

I love this idea that I found on Almost Unschoolers Blog. First you use your masking tape to make the base of the house. I only had the thick one but it worked. But I'm sure the thinner one is better:)

Ducky, then made three stories in the house with furniture, blankets,tables, stairs and bathroom. Our daughter has several Calico Critters that she uses to play with this masking tape home. I love that she can use her imagination and you only need three simple items: Masking Tape, carpet and your mind. 

This is DMan's Hobbit house. It from the book The Hobbit. Hobbit means "comfort place" to relax, That sounds good to me!!!!

This is the inside of his Hobbit House:)

Thank you Heavenly Father for the ability to homeschool our children. Its a blessing to see them use their imaginations. And most importantly Have Fun throughout their day!!!!

First Language Lesson has been the only grammar that I have used. I love the gentle approach. The Level 2 is all oral which I love. First Language Lessons reviews precious lessons throughout the whole book. Repetion is important when you are trying to learn. Level 2 has copy work, poem memorization, story narration, dictation and much more. My personal experience has been that First Language Lessons has taught our children so much. I wouldn't start grammar until I found something that was gentle with very little writing. Now our children can tell you several poems, narrate back to you what they have learned, tell you what a noun,verb,pronoun, preposition is and much more. Although this suggests that this book is for grade 2, we didn't start this book until 5th and 3rd grade. You can start it in 2nd grade but we have been taking our time on this subject. Below are some examples of our work throughout the year. Thank you to Peace Hill Press for letting us review such a wonderful product. 

Linking Verbs
This was one of the enrichment activity, love because its a hands on activity. The enrichment activity is after each lesson to enhance the lesson. 

A complete grammar text for young students, First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind, Level 2 uses dictation, narration, picture study, and other classical techniques to develop language ability. 
Originally published along with the first level of First Language Lessons as a single volume, Level 2 has been redesigned as a simple-to-use one-year program. 
First Language Lessons, Level 2 is an oral grammar program.

Level 2
We have been learning this list for several months. It's so awesome that First Language Lesson will repeat for several lessons until well known.

Ducky and her friend have been doing a handicraft while DMan is at Lego Class. Ducky did an amazing craft. 

Materials needed:
Lunch Box
Saved Candy Wrappers
Paint Brush to spread glue

Take your glue mixture and paint glue onto the candy wrappers. Then put candy wrappers onto your lunch box. Cover the whole lunch box with the candy wrappers. The finished product is so cute. You can also use cans and cover them with candy wrappers for gifts. I love this concept and its thrifty. 

Ducky and Her friend with part of there lunch done. The smiles says it all!!!!
