In and out and over a week

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~

Instagram photos again this week! It’s so much easier and simpler to pull out and snap a candid shot with my iPod Touch rather than have the camera handy (and then the cord to get the photos off the camera).  



~Pretty Heels ~

This stylin’ little mama came strolling her baby through the kitchen the other day. She loves the click-click-click of my heels.



~ Happy Circle Time ~

We love Circle Time. It is the together time, the praying together time, the Scripture together time of our day. You’ll be doing a Circle Time, Morning Time, for your homeschool next year, right?




~ Funny Clutter ~

Because it’s better to laugh than cry.

Your home is a tool. Let it be used.

Remember my day-in-the-life-of-our-counter? Yeah. It’s been awhile since it’s been cleared like that. Maybe I should do another one so I have the motivation to get it all put away again.



~ Real Art ~

Hans finished his math early the other morning, grabbed a library early reader nearby and started copying one of the illustrations. Isn’t it good??

Providing art books and time – not lesson plans or direct instruction (which I couldn’t give anyway) – has worked for us so far.

Another week nearing an end, another week closer to the end of the school year. Who else is ready?

    Mr Putter and Tabby! I recognized it right away. Yes, indeed, a job well done:).

    Last time I tried doing circle time regularly, it was NOT a success – twin 2yos running amok, baby needing to nurse, 5yo insisting on doing his *own* thing, and 4yo not understanding why nobody else will sit still with her! We’ll try again eventually, but I’m not sure it’s our season of life to try again quite yet ;)

    Mr. Putter and Tabby! We love those books. Very nicely done illustration too – your son did a great job with the details.

    I’m looking coward to the day when we can make it through morning time without someone having a time out… Someday, right?? But still, on the whole, it is good and none of us can imagine not doing it.
