Moments to Remember ~ October 2012

Moments to remember


Moments to Remember was developed as a simple way to look back on our week as homeschoolers and find photos that encompass the memories we want to remember.
The week may have been tough, there may have been more bumps than smiles, but in the end these are the moments that keep us going, the ones we need to remember.

This is the first Moments to Remember post where I opened up my photo folders for the entire month and scrolled through to remember our moments from this past month.  I like the new idea of recording monthly, it makes the memories stand out a bit more.

My favorite memory from October was definitely getting our puppy, Sweenie, and seeing my kids embrace this new furr-ball with such joy.

Right up there with getting the dog was our family camping trip.  I love that we can take trips even on school days thanks to the freedom homeschooling brings.Hayride with my babies!


A few during-homeschooling moments that are joyful memories…

This photo is definitely my favorite from the month.  Showcasing the fact that you can come to school shirtless, join in for a 5th grade lesson even when you are only in first grade, and sit on your big brother’s lap whenever you want {if he will let you of course}.Homeschool-2423


Ladybug joining us for our Home Art Studio project was so cute!  I love seeing her in with the big boys!Home Art Studio Rose Windows-3344


Our What’s in the Bible time together is one of my favorite homeschooling times.  The kids all love it and I do too.

Watching What's in the Bible and looking super cute. I ❤homeschooling.  



I love that Ladybug can sit back and soak up K’s lessons {All About Spelling seems to be her favorite, along with Draw, Write, Now} whenever she wants to.Melts my heart every time she begs to sit in on K's school time. She is sitting in the background ad his All About Spelling lesson repeating everything.


So many memories from the month that I hope I will cling to and focus on, instead of the difficult moments.  I am grateful for the still {quiet} moment a camera can capture that can stir up so much love and gratitude in my heart.Homeschool-3376
