Amy’s Wonderful World

Homeschool has been going good and strong. There are days, don’t get me wrong. I found out first hand on of the perks of homeschooling and it’s benefits to my child’s education this past week. I saw the need for my first grader to learn a concept she just couldn’t get. She had and still has a hard time seeing the pattern in numbers. She was getting stuck on what comes next when you get to 29, or 49 or any others. While she can count to 100, she cannot take that turn into the next ten if she’s being asked just for that area. So, with advice from a fellow blogger, Kathy, who rocks! I stopped her lessons for 2 days. We worked on it. We sorted cereal, beans, popcorn, whatever else we could get our hands on (even dry catfood๐Ÿ˜). And I’m glad to say it worked! The only snag with switching gears like that was she acted out some because the routine was off.

Just think of the opportunities kids could have if they were allowed the time to stop and dig in like that where they’re stuck in school.

Ever had Carmel pie? So rich, and bad for you…but so great for sweet cravings. It’s a versitle recipe that you can do alot with too.

We made this guy in doves this past week.

Some of the girls got anxious to be done with their hula-hoop tshirt rugs and tied them off early.

This one ended up curling around the edges and she likes it to be a bowl now!
Abigail got this doll house kit in the box never opened from Goodwill! It’s from 1985!

She and her dad are still working on it. Real wood. Real glue. No snap on pieces. There’s even sheets of hard plastic for the windows. They don’t make things like they used to…that’s for sure. I’ll post the finished house when they get it done.

We went on a field trip this week. The original plan was to visit the Studebaker museum but there was a communication problem so we visited our county museum. We then stepped in an art gallery to see some local talent.

Give a girl some shades and a car and she thinks she’s cool! Lol

Remember these? They had one room called the communications room. It had all the machines that your smart phone can now do, from calculators to t.v.’s

Hey Bruce! Indiana got some snow finally.

  1. I just LOVE this, for so many reasons!! ๐Ÿ™‚ First of all, my daughter just graduated last April, from homeschool! I now write for a homeschool convention company, which allows me to relive all the best (and not so best lol) parts. I love the photos and the realness… just amazing to get this little glimpse into these moments with you. Now, if you could only share your snow with this Kentucky girl, HAHA!! Be blessed!

    1. First of all, thank you for reading! Secondly, yay you’re apostolic, we are too. UPCI all the way.
      This is our first year homeschooling. I love it. I love that I van pray with my girls and our the word of God into their learning which would never be the case in public school. I love that I don’t have to watch that big yellow bus drive away with them every morning and then worry all the day about them.
      I look forward to following you.
      I’ve wanted to learn more about free lance writing but have no idea how to start. How is it going for you?

      1. YES!!! The Way, the TRUTH, and the LIFE ๐Ÿ™‚ AMEN! My husband and I are first generation Apostolics, only 3 years in!!! I’m still learning everyday, but praise God, we ARE learning!
        Homeschooling is one of the most rewarding things EVER โค I started homeschooling my daughter in the 3rd grade, then let her "try out" high school in the 9th. Worst nightmare I could have ever imagined, but I digress, lol. You're going to love EVERYTHING about it!! Even on the tough days ๐Ÿ™‚
        Freelance writing is awesome, but most of the "good" free platforms are slowly ebbing away, and California has all but banned the practice. I have been doing this professionally since 2015, and it was a slow start, but I now stay so busy it's hard to catch a break ๐Ÿ™‚ My prayer and my DREAM is to write faith-based content for a living. I'm close!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I would suggest checking out "freelance writing jobs" in a google search. Be mindful of scams, know that you should NEVER have to pay to find a writing job, and PRAY! ๐Ÿ™‚ I'll pray with you!! It's SUCH a rewarding job! Bless you Sis! So excited to know you!!

  2. Amy, I am so thrilled for you and your children! I know it is exhausting to be both a full-time mom and full-time teacher, but you will never get these years back. You and your children will treasure this sacrifice you and your husband have made forever. Most of all, we know that in addition to taking a little extra time to solidify a math concept, you will be solidifying their faith in Jesus. Nothing matter more than what you are doing. God bless you, keep you, uplift you and sustain you!

    1. Thank you so much Melissa. Thank you for reading. You are right I will never get these years back. And I feel that tugging at me daily. Sometimes I wish I could slow it all down…while others…not so much lol.
      Being able to pour God into their hearts daily is such an advantage.
