Our Days {In Pictures} Homeschool Link-Up

Happy Friday!! I don’t have many pictures to share this week, because we are in the thick of moving! We’re closing next week, and we’re all very excited about the move and also very ready for it all to be done!

My one picture I have from this week isn’t at all school related, but it’s what our family did! We were able to walk the property line along our creek and took this lovely shot!


We plan to clear a few of the trees around the area and put up some picnic tables. I’m also excited that we’ll be able to do some serious nature study and nature walks right on our own land.

Next week, my older two children will begin their live courses with Veritas Press and the others will continue using Essential Skills Advantage and Mathletics. Yesterday, I shared our complete line-up for the year.

Welcome to this week’s “Our Days” link-up:

“Our Days” Homeschool link-up is a place to share our weekly projects and show our curriculum-of-choice in action.

Since we school year round, this will be a weekly link-up until further notice. :)

See y’all next week!

Curriculum For Our 2014-2015 Homeschool Year

I feel I’m a little late this year, but better late than never.

If you remember from last year, we had an extremely tight budget for curriculum and pieced together items from our curriculum closet, the library, swaps, and e-bay! Then we were blessed to be a part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew and received several high-quality products that my children have enjoyed.

Overall, it was a great year, and we’re bringing a few of our favorites with us into the new year!

Here’s our line-up!



  • Besides using various products from the Homeschool Bundle, we’re about to begin our fourth year working through My Father’s World’s Kindergarten!
  • Even though math skills are included in MFW K, my Kindergartener enjoys math and likes workbooks, so we’re adding Horizons K Math this year. If it ends up being too much, we’ll scale back.
  • Reading practice through Essential Skills Advantage

Third Grader:

Fifth Grader:

Seventh Grader:

It’s hard to believe that we only have two more years with her joining us in the cycle! I I can’t imagine how I’ll feel when she graduates.

And of course there’s the Baby:

  • Hanging out in the sling
  • Scooped up in Mama’s arms
  • Giggling and cooing with older siblings
  • Singing songs and reading as many books to her as I can.
  • I love a baby’s first year.

I’m sure we’ll add in extras here and there, especially since we have several more homeschool review items to come. Once we’re moved in and settled in our new home, I look forward to kicking off our official start of the school year!
