I don’t know about anyone else here in the Midwest, but this summer’s hot, sticky, cut-with-a-knife humidity has basically rendered me useless everywhere except my basement! It’s. So. Hot.
The amazingly creative learning activity you planned was a total bust and ended in toddler tears. You lost your keys somewhere between changing the baby’s diaper and packing the snacks for after soccer practice. The kids’ bad attitudes are quickly growing contagious, and you have absolutely zero plan for dinner.
I’ve been here. So many days.
Looking for some fun, fall activities for your homeschool that go beyond the pumpkin patch?
This little learner activity is perfect for emergent readers!
Happy First Week of Fall, everyone!
Hey, joyful friends!!
If you’ve been following me lately, you may have read that I’m teaming up again with Abby Barstow from The Joyful Homemakers Club for Round 2 of the #iamajoyfulhomemaker Instagram campaign.
I’m so excited — today is DAY 1!
Today’s prompt is “Your Joyful Face” – introduce YOU – The joyful homemaker!
Not all my Joyful Mama Friends are on Instagram, so I thought I’d post an invitation to #spreadjoy here on the blog, too.
I’m Faith – stay-at-home, homeschooling, Jesus-loving, coffee-consuming mama of two littles (Bundle and Baby Bear). We live in the very rural Midwest. When I’m not blogging or spreading joy on IG, you can find me in the garden, in the kitchen baking up gluten free desserts, or lounging on the couch with a cup of coffee and a good book in hand.
Are you a blogger? Please join me! Introduce yourself (and leave a link to your blog) in the comments. I’d love to get to know you!
Want to learn more??
Ready to join in? Head to my Instagram page and start spreading some joy!
I can’t wait to see you!
I’m taking a minute today to let you know that I’ll be intentionally slowing down for a month or so here at A Fresh Brewed Faith.
With the school year starting back up, a newborn in the house, and multiple new projects on my plate, I’ll be taking a much-needed break from the wonderful, but busy blogging world.
If you’re following The Greatest Commandment Weekly Brew series, stay tuned! I will be continuing the Weekly Brew, as well as my #desiretoinspire posts in Instagram! (And I’m always active on Pinterest, so if you haven’t checked out my boards there, please do!)
I’m excited to take some time to rest and refocus – and then come back to the blogging world with a heart full of inspiration! 🙂
Can’t wait to see you soon…
This time of year my Pinterest feed seems chalk full – pun intended – with beautiful school supply storage ideas. And what self-respecting teacher nerd can resist a lovely array of freshly sharpened colored pencils in a cute container?
This week I came up with a clever and pretty solution for organizing your homeschool supplies.
Well, it’s week #2 for the official documentation of the things my daughter says… and I’ll be honest – every single one revolves around either sleep or sweets!
(Or maybe those are just the ones I’m selectively hearing 😂)
