My Father's World: Creation

I debated about even writing a post because my new bedtime is 11 [sigh] and it's 11, but I figure a little post is better than no post, right?

It's not official, but I think I might make Tuesdays the day I talk about my homeschooling. I don't want to bog my blog down with homeschooling stuff every-single-day. There is no reason you need a play by play when there are plenty of other great blogs out there walking you through Kindergarten. 

I say all that to say, our school district started Monday, so...we did too. I don't know WHY I picked this week because it was probably silly with all the people in and out of my house this week for some minor renovations & deliveries, etc.

So far I've learned...

1. Nation is an artist

2. I made a good choice picking his curriculum that is full of crafts

3. You can't laminate something small unless you want to break your new laminator

4. You will want to laminate everything you own [and once you start you can't stop]

5. Buying extra worksheets for $30 is a greater value than printing them myself #lessonlearned

6. I lost my optional naptime to teach and hence have a new bedtime #summerisover #itsoffical

7. Homeschooling with a baby awake is pointless...unless you have lots of organic suckersir.gif

8. Don't say, "you're coloring so dark you'll tear a whole" [you'll just give him a new idea]

9. Playing school all those years has actually come true, and day 2...it still feels fun? #hopeful

10. I never knew how much teachers hand to prepare [both in paper & mentally] before lessons

That's all for now folks. Blogging may be less, it may be more. One thing is for sure---Life won't get any less boring or dull. It's all stories & hilarity from here on out---in my organized chaotic life!


  1. MFW is very easy to teach. After the first Creation Week, it gets very predictable, which those little ones love. The crafts are lots of fun and the book choices are awesome. Just wait for the book about the hat guy. Thought my kids would die laughing. Eliana loved going to the library with me to get books too. Nice little outing for she and I. If you can manage a little mommy/Nation time just for a library trip, it'll be worth it.

  2. Glad you're loving MFW. I think it is a great curric for starting out. Laminators and homeschooling go hand I hand and so do copy machines, although I agree that sometikea buying the extra pages is a better investment. Glad you are having so much fun.

  3. We are not starting school around here for another 2 weeks. Mostly because a lot of time has gone into getting Daddy back into college and registered and buying books. Then he starts this coming Mon. and it's going to be a huge change to our schedule. So I want to see how that change affects us and start that next week. Pray for me as I want even get a break at night like I have been use to. :)
