It’s already September and we’ve been working and playing our way through Kindergarten for nearly a month now!
It’s been a while since I’ve updated on our family, so I thought this would be the perfect time to share what life is like for us this fall.
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.
At 11:15 this morning, I set the baby in the pack-and-play and started to prep lunch. I asked my five year old to find something fun to do while waiting for lunch. Apparently, this was no small feat — the whining ensued almost immediately.
When we first started preschool activities at home, I knew physical activity and education would be important, but I wasn’t sure where to start!
As time went on, I realized that the most important part of physical education in the early childhood years is simply the enjoyment of and participation in being active! So we began doing things we loved, and our P.E. evolved from there.
Between helping with (and having kids involved in) children’s choir, teaching a preschool class on Wednesday nights, teaching piano lessons 3 out of 5 evenings, and all the holiday buzz in general, my December plate is pretty full!
Looking for some fun, fall activities for your homeschool that go beyond the pumpkin patch?
This little learner activity is perfect for emergent readers!
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…
Is August really here? With school supply sales running full-tilt, I wanted to be sure to share some of my very favorite, can’t-live-without school supplies for the homeschooling family.
