Hands On, Field Trip, and Fine Arts Learning 

 It's been quite the busy week. While I work on this edition of Collage Friday feeling QUITE worn out, I'm happy with everything we learned and accomplished this week!

Truth be told, we've had a lot of book work and stay at home studies this semester. I'm learning, as the year progresses, how to adjust work loads and how to manage time better so we can take more field trips and spend more time on things like music and art. 

This week was well balanced - so I deem it a success!

Cultivating Beauty and Wonder in Your Homeschool

Am I being intentional about including BEAUTY in our homeschool - and in our every day lives? 

Checking off boxes sometimes becomes the goal, instead of seeing God in everything and stopping to appreciate the beauty around us. 

Classical Conversations offers webinars free for the homeschool community - a recent webinar I attended was about homeschool scheduling, and allowing time for BEAUTY in our days.

In this week's Collage Friday I'd like to share ways I've been cultivating beauty and wonder.

Homeschooling When Dad is Away

 Our lives are changing rapidly. 

Ever since my oldest was born I have stayed at home while my husband went to work. I've worked in various capacities (running a piano studio from the house and now blogging and writing music curriculum), but for the most part our routine and lives stayed the SAME.

Now, my husband doesn't work a normal 8-5 job. He doesn't get up at the crack of dawn, go downtown to an office, and arrive home in time for dinner.

Some weeks he is traveling. Other weeks he is working from home. Right now I'm trying to remain flexible and patient.
