A Peek Inside Our Homeschool


When I was asked to give my readers a little peek into our homeschool but only through photos, it sounded pretty easy.  But I realized as I was doing it, that it was a whole lot harder than I imagined not only to get the photos of a normal day at our house but also to keep myself from wanting to narrate every single one and explain what's going on.  But I won't, promise!  I'll just ask you to remember that what you see here is just a *tiny* peek.  A glimpse.  You won't hear the sibling fight in the background or really get a feel for the chaos that can sometimes ensue as we try to make these things happen.  You won't see the tantrum (from me or the boys) or hear the noise.  Oh, the noise.  But please shoot me any questions you may have in the comments and I'll be happy to answer them!  Oh, and yes, these photos were taken over the course of two days…because I just couldn't take them all in one day and actually do the homeschooling, too.  But they're a good mashed-up representation of a typical school day for us.
Okay, mouth shut.  Commence window peeking.

































This post is part of the See Me Homeschool blog hop and link-up hosted by Theresa at Ordinary Lovely and Micaela at California to Korea.  I'm so glad you're here and thank you to both for asking me to be a part of it!  To get a glimpse in more homeschooling windows or to add your own, please click on either of their links or the image below!

  2. Your home is so lovely and the pictures do evoke a 'calm' perception of your family so it is nice that you share about the squabble we are not hearing etc... I a home full of boys as well and even if it isn't an argument, it just seems that when they are together the conversation level goes up, up, up until I remind them to bring it back down and then the noise cycles up again. I loved seeing your glimpse, thank you for sharing!

  3. Beautiful pictures! I loved looking through these as I am going to be homeschooling my first boy for kindergarten in the fall. Some days I cannot imagine harnessing his energy and yet I am so excited too.

    Your pictures seem to have a calmness, a harmony, though as you shared we can't hear the fight. Giggling, what if Theresa had asked for an audio!

    1. Hi Lauren! So you know the chaos :) That one is Plern Piano Teacher but we just found one we like better called NoteFlight. Plern doesn't let you print the music but on Noteflight you can compose, hear, and then print your own compositions! It's really neat and John Paul has been loving it…which unfortunately for me, means I have to share my computer more :)

  7. Love the gorgeous pictures--you have such a pretty house and cute boys. We have four boys too (plus a girl twin sister in the mix). It think it's your beautiful white furniture that makes everything look so calm in this montage!
