The kids made an incubator to put the dishes in to keep them warm. They used an old wooden craft box that no longer has supplies in it, a lamp (my pretty laundry room one)
We learned a lot together. Hayden (successfully) made his own fidget spinner! Kids will figure it out! AND probably learn something along the way.
Our family has long been known as The Courtney Six. We enjoy hanging out together- even now that most of the kids are teenagers and we’re often looking for family things to do.
I’m Nadine, a wife, stay at home mama, homeschooler to 4 amazing boys and the creator of Making Her Mama. My desire is to share our journey of homemaking, homeschooling and homesteading with you.
I am an Army veteran I served as an MP (military police) for almost 6 years. I was recently injured which led me to my blogging journey. I am currently enrolled in college going for my BA in biological science.
I call our homeschool style “Heart-to-Heart Homeschooling”. I came up with the term when I was creating my blog. It is a natural, common sense approach to homeschooling based on the ideas...
I’m not teaching them a curriculum. I molding them (by the grace of God) into people who love to learn, who love goodness, truth, and beauty, who know how to think for themselves and solve problems… and I’m molding them into people who will one day be my very best friends.
What do I wish I had known when we first began? How quickly the years would fly by! That each child would have a different learning style, strengths, and weaknesses. That progress is SO much more important than perfection.
When we first started out, I wish I had listened to those that blazed this trail before me. I was constantly hearing, "Trust your instincts. You know your child better than anyone else ever will, listen to them, follow their lead." They were absolutely right. Children are naturally hungry for knowledge, and it doesn't have to fit inside the pages of a textbook.
Have you ever wanted a peek inside the life of homeschooling families? I've rounded up a diverse group of homeschooling mamas to share their daily lives with us.
