homeschool zoo week

Zoo week fell during a time that it was raining and flooding something fierce here in Texas.  We were lucky enough to find *one* day out of ten where it was a low chance of rain.  We booked our booties up to Waco on that one day and it held off!  Then back home to more and more and more rain.  Thankfully, we had lots of indoor zoo activities to keep us busy while stuck inside.  Thank God for gluten free play doh!

preschool weather week

We had so much fun with weather week that we stretched it out to last 2 weeks.  We had a ton of stuff to learn and explore and it just wouldn’t fit in to one week.  That’s one of my favorite things about learning at home, we can bend and adjust to what the kids are most interested in.  We bought a rain gauge and use it all the time now.

preschool easter weekWe had a wonderful week celebrating our Lord’s resurrection.  The kids really loved the cross paintings and the resurrection eggs (that I found on sale, score!).  We hosted an Easter egg hunt with friends that was allergy friendly and had a blast, so it was a busy week.

train week – homeschool preschool | personal iphoneography

preschool train weekMy kids had a blast during train week.  Hands down, their favorite thing, was using trains to paint.  We put paint on our paper and then used the wheels of the trains to run it across the paper.  The paintings were all so different and the kids had a blast with it.  They also loved their conductor uniforms and the ride in to Austin on the metro.  Definitely a fun week for us!  Even Ty joined in by setting up different train track areas in the house for the little kids.

Christian Christmas Book Advent

I have been wanting to do this for years and I finally got organized enough before busy season hit to actually pull it off this year.  I really enjoyed researching and looking for books that have a Christian, Jesus focused, tone to them.  I started buying books in September, a few a week to spread out the cost.  To save money, you could easily hit Half Price Books or other discount book stores.  I didn’t have a ton of time to enjoy the thrill of the hunt so I ordered most of mine online.  I ordered the number labels for each book from this Etsy seller.  Once all the books came in Jason and I sat down and wrapped them all in craft paper while watching a movie.  It really helped us to keep the focus on Jesus during such a busy time of year.  We had a total of 25 books, the 25th book being a children’s bible.  Both Ty and Taryn have their own bibles but Jude did not, so the 25th book was a specific gift for him.  Below is a list of the books we included in our advent.  Overall, it took a lot of planning on my part but it was so so worth it!  The kids really enjoyed it and so did we!   The best part is that come next Christmas we already have 24 books tucked away that we can enjoy again!
