As you can see we are very busy.  I would love to share more of what I do in my homeschool, but I'm so focused on my kids during my homeschool day and I do lots of cooking, cleaning, working out and I always feel like I can't keep up.  My husband also needs me to help in things he does around the home like the garden, canning and dehydrating.

If you want to keep up with what we are doing, you can follow my FACEBOOK page.  It's much easier for me to post a few pictures and share what we are doing rather than writing up a blog post.  So, please check out my page and see what we are doing.  I would love it!

I hope this has given you some ideas for what you can do in your homeschool.

I'm sorry this was shared so late in the year, but I hope it gives you some ideas for what you might like to use with your kids.  Let me know if you have any questions.
