Today was my first attempt at "homeschooling" Ayrie. I've been cooking up ideas, studying Charlotte Mason curriculum, following other Wild + Free moms for about a year now. I'm no photographer, but I'm an educator at heart, and I've been planning this for a long time. Every day Ayrie and I will do what I'm calling a "little lesson" after school. That's 15-20 minutes on a specific subject, and I'll have it all ready for her in her room when she gets home. To her, it's fun new stuff and she loves that I'm playing in her room with her. .
The rock lesson was a success.
Learned new words ☑️
Read two books that taught us all about rocks ☑️
Traced her first letter ☑️
Identified things by referring to a guide ☑️
Counted and saw numbers visually (she painted these number rocks earlier in the week) ☑️
Inspected all different shapes, sizes, textures, colors of rocks ☑️
Played with her rock collection she's gathered on hikes this year ☑️
Pointed out a state on the U.S. map (Vermont - where the giant piece of slate came from) ☑️ #wildandfreechildren#charlottemason#homeschoolmom#wildandfreekids#charlottemasonhomeschool#threeyearsold#habitatschoolhouse#homeschoolcollective#naturestudy#stemeducation#stemgirls#learningthroughplay#homeschool#smartgirl
So for the last week I’ve been taking the On Guard Plus Softgels twice a day for the last week because my daughter was sick. But now I’m feeling a bit more down so I’ve added a Copaiba and I’m taking it three times a day. It’s definitely helping. With all things. I love the ease of the Softgels. Both are kicking up my immune system plus the Copaiba will help with pain and inflammation. Perfect one two punch! I can tell I won’t be down for long. Are you ready for sick season? I am armed and dangerous! If you want to be armed this season, 🙋🏻 and I can tell you the best way to start with oils! And I have a great deal with freebies this month. Come with me. #feelthelove#naturallyeffective#naturalpainrelief#immunesupport#immuneboost#immuneboosting#copaiba#onguard

Day 3. Creation. What better creation than humans themselves and for me, as a mother, my children. They are my pride and joy and more than I could’ve ever hoped for. It’s true that God will use them to mold you. Currently being molded ☺️ #flourishfotos
Day 2 ( a day late - whoops) Flourish. The trees are still producing lots of green down here. Nature and His creation have always been such an inspiration to me. I go to nature to be quieted. I go to nature to lower my cortisol levels. I go to nature to hear His voice. I can’t even put into words how it helps me flourish in my own faith. #flourishfotos
"Ma... Sini deh buruan. Ada burung Beo, Ma. Ayo, sini, Ma."
Buru2 emaknya keluar, gak peduli lagi dah pake celana super pendek dan baju lusuh rumahan, sambil nentengin henpon tentunya dong.
Meskipun pas liat, burungnya jauuh di atas sana, tetep emaknya usaha beneeerrr buat dapetin potonya burung Beo. Lumayan dapet dikit2 dah yaaa. 😂😂
Segitu menariknya ya buat si Boy untuk sesuatu yang sebenarnya sederhana aja, melihat burung Beo. Sebetulnya cukup senang juga karena sudah ada yang tertanam di dalam dirinya setelah setahun belakangan ini konsisten memberikan #livingbooks, buku-buku yang banyak menggugah batin.
Pelan tapi pasti, semoga saja, sejalan dengan seringnya ia terpapar sesuatu yang baik, suatu saat nanti di masa dewasanya bisa menjadikan dirinya menjadi pribadi yang baik juga.
Today is a home day. No exploring any further than our backyard. Trying to re-group after a few busy days. It also seems to be days like these when everyone has a big release of emotions after adventuring all weekend. // Do you ever have days where you just don’t leave your house/yard?
Yesterday I lost a bag of art pens. Mostly @sakuraofamerica microns and @tombowusa and also my nice eraser. 😭 I’m heartbroken because they were expensive. I’m also behind on @inktober due to sickness in the family, my husband is out of town, and one of our pets died yesterday so....here is a sketch for “angular” day 16
