New Home, New School Area

      The first year we that lived here, we did our school work on the couch, floor, or kitchen table and that drove me nuts.  As you may know, our educational philosophy is traditional and we thrive in a classroom-like setting. As a result, the following school year ('15-'16) I designed one!

      And that is what I want to share with you today, of course! Yes, it's the end of the school year, but it's never too late to share such awesomeness ♥ And hey, at least the photo's were taken at the beginning of year.

My review of Bob Jones University and A Beka Academy (DVD)

      We have been homeschooling for 7 years and have almost always used A Beka Academy on DVD's for our children (one year we used Easy Peasy and one year we used only A Beka Books), but for this year (2015-2016 school year) I decided to try Bob Jones University on DVD’s (for 6th grade) and BJU Hard Drive (for grades 1 and 4). If you will be using only the books from either, some of these may or may not even matter.

This is my review of Bob Jones University and A Beka Academy:

New Years Eve

Every New Years Eve we stay up all night, eating snacks, watch a movie, and play games. 

This year was no different.

Everyone got new pajamas, balloons, games, and a movie.
 Some of us stayed up all night and some of us fell asleep several times hehe.
(before anyone freaks outs, BabyChickadee went to bed an hour later than usual and woke up twice to nurse as usual)
The children really enjoy staying up all night as this is the only night they are allowed to do so and the following day we sleep in and just have a lazy day.

Blessed is the man...

...whose quiver is full of them [children]. Psalm 127:5

And boy is our quiver full!
I made Mr. Chickadee this wonderful shirt for Fathers Day...
