Ali wants to be the first woman on Mars. Last year she told me that she wanted to be an astronaut when she grew up but that she was afraid of heights. She was very serious about this so we worked on some brave things this summer like jumping off the high dive and climbing trees. Her determination seriously amazed me! She tells me that she is now ready for space as long as they have motion sickness pills 😂
For homeschool this year, Ali will be studying everything she can about space. If you have kids interested in learning more about astronauts and space we’ve added some products to our Idea List on the @Amazon Back-To-School Store. The link is in my bio.

Somehow the door was opened last night. Samaria asked if she was going to go to heaven and the rest of the evening was a beautiful collection of questions, prayer, snuggles and dreams. Like we were in our own little magical #snowglobe.

All 7 of us cozied up in our #prayernook. In this area of the house, we have our #prayerboard, #surrendercross from @radjoy + our #gratitudejar.

Sure, we talk about God, pray before every meal, are active at church, teach a Christian #homeschool curriculum and have worship music playing all day long everyday BUT ultimately, it is our kids decision if they choose to follow Jesus and give their lives to Him.

We create the atmosphere and build the foundation of faith, and they must decide to surrender and live for Him on their own. We can't choose salvation for them. But we can help pave the way.

And last night the questions were pouring in and we answered with grace and peace and Biblical truth.

@seebz22 then led all the kids in a #salvationprayer to give their hearts and lives to Christ and it was the beautiful sound to hear their little voices repeating those words of commitment to God.

We prayed together, laughed together, cried together. All the kids wrote a prayer down and hung it up on our prayer board and each one wrote down something they were thankful for and put in in the #gratefuljar. And Makkedah had a specific burden she was carrying that she wrote down and nailed to the cross and cast all her cares to Him, the One who will carry the load for us all. She released all fear and worry and put her trust in God.

I can't even begin to describe the feelings when you see the your child tangibly grasp the love of God for them. And their desire to follow Him. That's the goal. Not to see my kids grow to be rich or famous or super smart or extremely athletic. But that they love Jesus and live their lives for Him.

My prayer is for hundreds more of these kinds of evenings. For my household and for yours. That the doors would be open to have the conversations, to pray the prayers and to unite in spirit and truth.

I still cannot believe this thing works after 9 years of non-use. 😳😍 Back then I never knew I would have a crafty little daughter but I'm so glad I saved this for her. ❤️😍 she is a pro already and is practicing her reading and spelling! She is making birthday cards for her brother and Papa. ❤️ #cricutcreate #craftygemini #homeschool #unschool

Pom Pom Sheep 🐑 • Back by popular demand - pom pom painting adorable animals! (Did you see our lions from last week? 😉) Cut out a sheep face from black construction paper, glue to paper, and let your little one use a pom pom (attached to a clothespin) to dip and stamp in white paint to create sheep's wool! This one is great for toddlers and preschoolers! 👉Now hop on over to @mydayswithkids to check out my latest post over there - Playdough bugs! #TheKidsPlay

The Reggio Emilia approach to education views the family as the child's first teacher. It also values the bond between family and child and the importance of honoring that bond in the classroom.
For the next 7 days we will feature 7 ways Rosa Parks ECEC teachers have honored the students' families in the classroom.

Now that our youngest is an official kindergartener, it's the first time that I can say I am a homeschool mama of three. It's my sixth year teaching my children but I still worry that I'm not doing enough or too much or not the right stuff. After completing a lesson on the upcoming solar eclipse today, our neighbor walked over and warmly thanked me for teaching him some facts about the eclipse too. I'll take that a reminder from the universe that as long as I try my best, it will all be ok.

Gosh I look all teacher-ish. That is kinda scary haha. Did you know I taught high school one year and retired? It's a true story. No offense, but high schoolers can be buttheads. They would write "crack-head Erickson" on their desks and I would quit every day at lunch...I was 21.😂😂

Anyway. I showed a pic of these tiles we use for our dyslexia curriculum in my stories and some people asked where to order. I order from bartonreading.com. Not sure if you can order just tiles. It's this whole reading program. But I vow to you. IT IS STRAIGHT UP MAGIC. Nothing else worked. Barton is SUPER user-friendly, fun and it WORKS. They have used it to teach 60 year old dyslexics that haven't been able to read their whole lives!!!!

But please don't wait til your kid is 60.😏 Their entire confidence and self-esteem is at stake here. This is not a sponsored ad. Just a super relieved mama. ***Also we homeschool with Inspire Charter Schools and they fund most of our curriculum. #homeschool #dyslexia #bartonreading

Teaching a #Kentucky class this semester at our #homeschool #cooperative. Here's about 75% of the materials I collected from the @kystatefair! My research materials/books have been sitting nicely on my bookshelf for a while. Still have some more class materials to collect with 5 weeks to go til Class begins. Super excited!

We're excited to offer new daytime programming for homeschool students and co-ops, starting in September, including a play production! Check out all our offerings online! #gcpaclasses #homeschool

This little one never ceases to surprise me. He is not, by nature, an adventurous soul (very different from N8 and myself), yet is willing to learn anything. Homeschool lessons from the past two days are brought to you by the Morse fam and they are learning to drive a six-wheeler, explore, enjoy walking through culverts, catch and release snakes, laughing a lot and being creative in the kitchen. @jlweigel79

These last two days have been very hard. The two closest adult people in my life have somewhat turned on me. I feel like I'm being judged. Things that I'm very passionate about (not veganism in this case) are being judged. How I choose to educate my children is being judged. By a close family member. And it hurts. Because this person is very open minded and I've looked up to them my whole life. And to be verbally attacked for my beliefs on how I want to raise my children hurt me. And this was after I had reached out to them. I thought maybe they would be a safe place for me to talk about my life. But they aren't. I don't think anyone is safe. I don't open up to people and this makes me not want to anymore.

And then with the other person, we are having a complete breakdown of communication. We are getting in fights based just on tone of voice. Things are just ridiculous.

And usually if I was having a tough time I'd go to one of these people. But now I have no one.
There's just this sadness in my heart. I want to let it go. But I don't know what the next step is. I'm tired of forgiving people. I let people walk all over me. I don't want to fight. I don't want anything. I just don't want people hurting me anymore.

Camping this weekend at the track for Canadian Superbike weekend. Endless amounts to explore and do. Someone barely stopped moving from sun up to sun down.

Only a few more days until we start another year at #NilssonAcademy🏡🚌🍎 I'm so excited to teach Anya 1st grade & Ollie Pre-K🤓 I completely switched up our school room to make things fresh & new💛 We are so pleased for how it turned out! If you've been on the fence with homeschooling, I would love to encourage you and share my experience & recommendations so far!
