Saturday morning

These two!  

This was last Saturday morning.  They spread that stack of books around, reading and exploring the printed word all day long in spurts.  

I loved it!  

What books are you enjoying right now?  With your kids or without?

My kids are loving the Miss Nelson books.
I just finished Mere Motherhood by Cindy Collins - a very good read.  
Starting Present over Perfect by Shauna Niequist!

homeschooling together

We have a new opportunity within our homeschooling routine this year.  Cora is going to our sweet preschool that we love two mornings a week.  That means that David and I get some one on one time.  For this first time we drove home from taking Cora and dropped off all of our bags at our neighborhood coffee shop where Daddy was already working.  

Then we drove the last mile home, got out of the car and onto our bikes and got a mile ride in back to the coffee shop.  Getting some exercise in and fresh air and sunshine and letting David do something he loves more than most anything else right now, riding his bike!

David and I shared a chocolately peanut buttery oatmeal treat and then dug into math and reading with a fun game and some reading of the Box Car Children thrown in too.  

It was a big morning and David really did great at keeping with it!  It was a long morning for me too!  This teaching stuff is exhausting but I wouldn't trade it at all.  

I really enjoyed all three of us being there together!

Fried egg word practice!  

Funny boy!  

Have you and yours started back to school?
