Thank you for stopping by! I wanted so badly to wait until the end of our first week of class to do this, but I fear the room would be destroyed - we get super busy during the week and I would be too tired to post a little tour of our homeschool room after the first week, so I thought, why not just do a quick vlog about it while the kids were semi-occupied. With one bathing and one following me around everywhere, I decided to just whip one up for you.
Keep in mind, it is extremely low quality because I was using a tablet that has a poor camera on it, and further more, I was still tired from being out in the heat for the majority of the day, so I found myself repeating several words - sorry about that. We are in Arkansas and are experience a heat wave of epic proportion! However, I still managed to get recorded for your, a slightly approving video tour of our classroom.
I have so many emails of folks wanting to know what our looked like, I certainly did not want to keep you all waiting. It's uploading as I type this and will hopefully be live in a matter of hours. Feel free to watch the video to gain some insight on how our homeschool operates and feel free to use any ideas you gain from the video. As always, thank you for stopping by!
Until next time,
Don't forget to grab your freebie!
Hello parents, homeschoolers, and the like...
If you are a frequent visitor to our page, you've undoubtedly seen a recent post about keeping costs at a minimum. But what kind of woman/mom/teacher would I be if I told you that I only spend wisely.
A lying one. But I'm telling the truth now. I did spend a little more than I should have last month. Only by $9.00 - and truth be told, I could have saved even more if I had upcycled some of the extra bulletin boards we have at home. But, I wanted this item to serve two purposes. And it does!
As some of you may not know, our family lives on a very tight budget. Eating out is a luxury in which we seldom partake. Homeschooling five rowdy children can often times lead to parental disappointment when you see that one particular item you really want your children to have access to, but simply cannot afford it. As a parent and teacher, it weighs heavy on my mind. And being the Scorpio that I am, I become obsessed with the idea until I find a way to make it happen (or as close to the original as possible). I surf Pinterest for ideas, shop at yard sales and flea markets, and I am even on the lookout for businesses that are liquidating for general office supplies, just to save a little money. What I did not realize is that you can invest in your home-school without breaking the bank.
As many of my wonderful followers may know, my oldest kiddo will soon be spreading her wings and taking flight. She will be graduating in June. My little Miss Senior allowed me the opportunity and privilege of shooting her senior pictures. Now, with income very tight and basically no wiggle room in the budge for hiring a professional photographer, I had to bust out some ingenuity and my old photography skills from my short stint as a professional to really make some magic happen. What I really wanted was a new Nikon. Granted, I've never had one, but oooooh, the pictures they can take. Absolutely gorgeous! Nope. I didn't have that.
Canon? Nope. Didn't have that either.
Kodak? Ha... Nope
Fugi disposable? Un uh! Nope.
