We love books in our house.  We started reading to the girls from a young age, and we will continue to do so. I figured I would share with you guys some of our favorites every month. Some of these are well known and commonly owned, others, not so much. If you ever have any suggestions of books to check out, we’re always willing to find new favorites!

It seems like every time I turn around, people are putting their kids in school at an ever younger age. When I was little, kindergarten was a gentle introduction to schooling and some kids might have gone into pre-k beforehand, but it wasn’t necessary. Nowadays, kindergarten is becoming more and more like 1st grade and pre-k is almost a necessity if you want your kid to have a gentle introduction to schooling. Heck, pre-k 2 and pre-k 3 are even becoming more common.

What Are We Playing With: May 2018

Arya, our 2 year old, LOVES doing dishes. People are constantly amused about the fact that she gets upset when I tell it’s time to stop doing dishes. She will just grab her stool, carry it over to the sink, climb on up, and do her stuff.

You do you, boo.

However, the kitchen sink isn’t always the safest place for her to be. Often times, there are sharp kitchen knives or bacteria from raw meat juices in there, and I refuse to let her play at that point for obvious reasons.

That’s where this lovely little toy came in.

Everyday Homeschooling: Exploring Different Creative Materials

Today, Arya and I decided to try some new ways of playing with some old favorites.

Ever since her birthday, we’ve been painting with watercolors, and this morning, I introduced a way to change it up. We took a sheet of watercolor paper and some crayons and drew on the paper before we started painting.

She loved it!

While Arya loves to color and paint in her various coloring books and pages, she loves coloring and painting over the things we draw even more.

Spring Photoshoot

Taking pictures of a 2 year old and a 6 month old is HARD. It was hot. It was so bright that I could barely see the viewfinder. Since we were outside, they wanted to just play….

Especially the 6 month since the world is still brand new to her. Since she’s just now able to sit up on her own (though not very well), I’m only just now putting her completely on the grass by herself (or at least she thinks that), and she wants nothing to do with me. She doesn’t care that I’m trying to make her smile or laugh, or that her sister is trying to pose with her. She just wants to explore the flowers and the grass and everything else in this big spacious world she’s found herself in.

The 2 year old, on the other hand, is a seasoned pro at pictures and videos. She’s used to me snapping a picture while she’s playing or vlogging while we’re doing various things. She still gets a little annoyed after a little bit because of how long it’s taking since we’re dealing with a 6 month old who could care less. She’s trying so hard to be patient though and is such a wonderful big sister.
