Learning about France

We're back in the swing of homeschool! We're having a blast learning about France since it's where Ari wants to go for her 10th birthday trip. I might also be staying up too late learning about France 😛 I'll get that figured out. We've also started working on learning some French with Duolingo and Language... Continue Reading →

Christmas School 2021 Week 2

Had another good week of Christmas school! We learned about how Christmas is celebrated in New Zealand, Brazil, Germany and the Philippines and about Hanukkah in Israel. We tried some traditions from those countries like spinning the dreidel, having a book flood, and making Christmas crackers. We got to try all kinds of different foods... Continue Reading →

It’s November!

Time flies anyway but now we're into the time of year when it really takes off. Kids have continued to hone their housekeeping skills. Helping cook, sweep, clean mirrors, do dishes and unload the dishwasher. They're also doing more grocery shopping this year. They each have their own list of groceries to collect at the...

We’ve been very busy:

Our last couple weeks have been a lot of fun and very busy. We're now studying Canada...but I don't have any pictures of that. We had friends from out of state come visit us for over a week and we had a blast. We went camping, went to a renaissance fair, the zoo, mini golfing,... Continue Reading →

Mexico and Plumbing

We have had a lot fun exploring Mexico and the desert the last 2 weeks. We've done science experiments to discover how cacti retain water and protect themselves. We've watched The Living Desert to learn about what lives in the desert. We learned about Chichen Itza and Mexican markets and eaten or at least tasted... Continue Reading →


It's been a busy few weeks. Lots of unpacking and organizing and I substitute taught for a week with 2 of the best teachers aides ever. We were really excited about living right next to an old overgrown olive orchard. The kids had 2 wonderful weeks of building forts and exploring...and we enjoyed having deer... Continue Reading →

We moved!

Busy as always! Spent Labor Day moving with lots of amazing help from extended family. So we've been living in a world of boxes. Slowly getting things unpacked and finding where they go and having minimum homeschool days. It is really nice to be so close to our build site and so close to my... Continue Reading →

We built a fence!

So again with the waiting to get our house build back on track...we learned to put up a fence! We were renting a security fence and that seemed kind of ridiculous since we were going to want a legit fence anyway...we got a couple estimates and they said they would put in a black chain...

Must do something….irrigation!

So the amount of time it's taking to get the letter written so we can continue with the house is...rather frustrating. And we just wanted to get something done so we could see progress. At first we settled on fencing...got a couple bids for a fence and it was $27k 😛 I went scouting for... Continue Reading →

Forgiving April

This week has been really hard...but having lots of people pray has been super helpful and ... I think...helped God remind me of the power of forgiveness. And then I've felt so much better. I wasn't meaning to be angry, I just forgot to forgive. Things are still hard and our workload has doubled but,... Continue Reading →
