Happy Valentine's Day!

Growing up as a kid myself, February was one of my favorite months. I just loved buying those boxed Valentines; giving and receiving them from other kids at school.

When I first started homeschooling my own child, I will admit, I was sad thinking my children would never get to experience this tradition. Thankfully, those were normal “new to homeschooling” concerns that would soon be just a distant memory. In past years, my kids have had fun times exchanging Valentines with family members, play groups, and co-op friends. The one thing different for my kids, however, is that we like to make our own Valentines. To be honest, we add lots of Valentine fun into our homeschooling, the week before the 14th. This year will be no different. Besides creating our own hand made Valentines and using a 5th grade Valentine spelling list that I found, as part of our Spelling lessons, I also plan on printing some fun Valentine worksheets :)

Wow! 2015 Already?!

                               I hope everyone had a Fun & Safe New Year’s Eve.

My New Year’s Eve was Great! I had such a blast last night with family and friends. It was just a small gathering at my home, but we all enjoyed ourselves. For me, no matter how old I get, my favorite part is always watching the ball drop :)

Another thing that I love about a new year is the feeling of a new start. A time for change; get rid of what isn’t working and make new resolutions. We do this every Jan1st. Everyone in the family, no matter how old or young (as long as they can talk, lol ), sits down and shares what their New Year’s Resolutions will be. We don’t always keep them, but it is fun to try. One of my homeschool resolutions, that I am defiantly going to keep, is to try lapbooking. I have always wanted to do it, but never have. My daughter's resolution, is to get me to take here to New York next New Year's Eve, to see the ball drop in person.We will see ;)
