MOST RECENT

We have been reading through some of the books suggested in “Give Your Child the World” by Jamie Martin. My girls both LOVE “Children Just Like Me” by Barnabas and Annabel Kindersley. #giveyourchildtheworld

I love giant books! Some of our geography resources for our afternoon looping schedule (we also have Atlas of Animal Adventure) I’m planning on picking up Maps & activity book (aleksandra mizielinska) too #homeschoolmom #homeschool #homeschoolplanning #homeschoolgeographyfun #geography #giveyourchildtheworld #homeeducator #charlottemasonliving #charlottemasoneducation #homeeducation #homeschoolcollective

B Ü C H E R E I 》We've had a family membership to our local library for just over half a year now. I don't know why it took so long to get one! (oh wait, yes I do - something about babies and not knowing the language well enough😳) Since February I've taken the kids once or twice each month to pick out new books and CD's. (Although sometimes I wonder if they heard me say "to run around and climb over the stacked cushions"😅) My husband would like us to stay around a 20-item limit, but let me just tell ya', it's impossible! (I'm usually double that 🙈) I think he's worried about massive overdue fines, but so far I've only had to pay 3€ - and that was before I got the library app on my phone. #greatestinvention A small price to pay for the hundreds of dollars worth of books and CDs that we've already borrowed. 🙄 Our library also has a huge selection of games and even boxes of themed birthday party decorations. (I just wish that inter-library loaning was an option #booknerdproblems) I have such great memories of library trips from my own childhood, not to mention I worked there for a few years during highschool, so I'm excited to watch my littles grow up with a love for books. And audio books are totally books too! Just ask @readaloudrevival 🤗 My oldest daughter can easily listen to stories on CD (usually in German) for 1-2 hours most afternoons. I'm so thankful we have access to this amazing resource. And gotta love those bright reading cushions! 😜 《 * a bit late for #nationalbookloversday, August 9th - watch out in the coming weeks for some of our favorite German books we've read, either here or in my highlights 》

It Is Not How Much We Have, But How Much We Enjoy, That Makes Happiness 💖💯

Evening Y’all 🙌🏼,
So today I kicked things off with a cruise out to Dead Mans Cove 🤪, rocked up, couldn’t get into the site! The lock box was broke....... so opened up the back of the tube & grabbed, a hammer, a small flat head & a paper clip...... let’s just say, I cracked that bugger wide open 😈, got into site, gave the joint a once over & finished off a couple of things! So I can call it as it is... DONE ✅ then got all my gear loaded up & cruised out to the workshop, to unload & look at what I need to get done! & cause the missus new that I need to work this weekend 😑 she rocked up with the lads so I can spend some time with the boys & get next to nothing done in the shop 😂, the young bloke stuck to me like bees to honey 🍯 little Loge’s gave me a hand in gluing up & then I chuckled as he grabbed my Pull saw (Ryioba) saying ooh dads ninja Saw 😂 what can I say my kids love the ninja turtles 😘
But tomorrow the flash & I are hanging out in the shop where I’m going to get these river Redgum tops & open shelf cabinet completely ready for polishing! So until then 😉 be good ✌🏼 & I’ll catch Ya in the next one 🤙🏼

We got home to a fun little book from #Chatbooks that I made for Ellie. It’s all our #giveyourchildtheworld #summerbookclub photos from this summer. A fun way to look back on what we did. And a fun way to keep track of homeschool work too! Check out my stories for an inside look.

We are excited to include Song School Spanish in our language learning lineup this year. We will use this incredible resource along with immersion experiences, reading aloud as many bilingual library books we can get our hands on, playing flashcard games and Spanish bingo, as well as learning various children's songs and nursery rhymes! One of our priorities in educating our children at home is to teach them to be curious, compassionate world citizens. In learning a second language (and hopefully someday a third or fourth!), it is our hope that our kids will be able to find friends and form lasting connections all over the world.

|| DAY 8 & 9 of @growingbrave challenge || Book Stack & History
.
When it comes to the topic of history I’m extremely committed to making sure our history studies include people of color and from varying regions of the world. I don’t know all the books so I research a lot. 🤓 The first picture is a sampling of books from last year’s history studies and a few for the upcoming year. (And if you’re looking for an American history book that discusses the Black experience and also other people of color, check out Heart and Soul. The illustrations are gorgeous and the content even better)
.
A couple of my favorite places to find book recommendations that are more representative and inclusive are:
.
📚 @hereweeread
📚 @bullardbelinda 📚 @booksfordiversity 📚 #giveyourchildtheworld (and the corresponding book of the same name)
.
.
And my current personal book stack is a little all over right now. A couple are books I recently finished. A couple are parenting books because, uh, my #thirdchild. And on the topic of inclusion and race— “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together...” is so, so good. It’s even-handed, well-researched, balanced, and deeply thought provoking. .
.
Do you have any resources that you use to help find history books?

We are still exploring the world via #giveyourchildtheworld and #readtheworldsummerbookclub but we are way behind because these beauties 😍. During Latin America week we read a few books based in the Carribean and I fell in love and started searching for all the island stories I could find! They are all so vibrant, fun and powerful. Truthfully, I don't want to give them back to the library! There are so many favorites! To see the front covers check out my instastories. Also, the last book is Cinderellion: A Carribean Cinderella, the spine is just worn out. #beautifulbooks #bookstakeyouplaces #littlebooklearners

We turned our #poetryteatime into a magical journey to India with @letters.from.afar , folk tales and poems, apple cinnamon tea and fruit parfaits. This homeschool thing is a pretty sweet gig. #partyschool .

Happy mail. ❤️ 📚
Do you order books then get giddy when they arrive? I always check our local bookstores and library first, but I’m definitely a book addict and seek titles not often kept in stock! #bookstagram #bookaddict #homeschoolmom #homeeducator #motherculture #wildandfreemama #kidsbookstagram #readaloudrevival #readaloudfamily #giveyourchildtheworld #greatwomenwhochangedtheworld #homeschoollife #homeschoolplanning

“Love is taking a few steps backward, maybe even more…to give way to the happiness of the person you love.” —Winnie-the-Pooh.
This is a perfect representation of how I feel about loving my children, I would give them the world if I could. #disney #disneyquotes #winniethepooh #beingamom #wdw #tbt #giveyourchildtheworld #happyfamily #happy #wheredreamscometrue #waltdisneyworld #myworld #parentingblog #parentingblogger #piglet #tigger #waltwednesday #walt #winniewednesday #sillyoldbear

My kids were playing so nicely so I thought, “Why not sit and read the book I bought?”. Well I did get a few minutes in but apparently I looked too comfortable because I quickly became a jumping board. 😂 But so far this book is really good! Have any of you read it? I love the thought behind it. I can’t wait to get further in to it.

#bravegrownspaces day 7: Bible & Character. These Bible Hi-Gliders are awesome. They are waxy and won't bleed through the pages. The jar next to them is our kindness jar. Every time I see the kids acting in kindness (especially when it's hard) I put a bean in the jar. Or they can come to me and tell me if they have seen one of their siblings be kind. Each bean is worth 10¢, and at the end of the month, we will count how many beans there are and donate that amount to a charity. I got this idea from @jamie_cmartin's book Give Your Child the World. (Currently reading... Amazing!) We frequently listen to The Jesus Storybook Bible audiobook in the car if we are between chapter books. It's beautifully narrated by David Suchet, in a much more captivating way than I could EVER attempt! Not pictured is our scripture box, where we keep scripture we are working on memorizing. Now don't think I'm some supermom or anything... We only managed to memorize two passages last school year. 😌 But after seeing how easy it is, I'm hoping to work on many more this year!

A slow afternoon in the shade and a new book. #pixelatedreading #giveyourchildtheworld #anotherdayanotherbook

Another wonderful resource for books to read with your kids, this time with a global perspective. Jamie separates the book lists by continent and age group and gives a brief summary of each book. I’m really looking forward to diving into so many new books with my kids while exploring other cultures and traditions. Some books even include recipes! #giveyourchildtheworld #readaroundtheworld #bookstagram

We recently discovered the Anna Hibiscus book series. I checked out a couple of picture books in this series last week from our library. They both turned out to be great read-alouds with my boys.
.
Anna Hibiscus lives in Africa along with her parents, grand mother, uncles, aunts and cousins. This book series follows her adventures in the amazing Africa. The pictures depict everyday life in Africa. They are all bright, colorful and piqued my boys interest right away. I am always looking for diverse books from around the world to read to my children. This was a great find in that sense. We will be checking out more books from this series in future for sure.
.
On a side note, I learned from our librarian that there are two versions of this series. One is the early reader version, which is what we are reading. Then there is also another version available for older kids.
