So we survived our first week and a half of homeschooling!! I am happy to say it wasn't nearly as difficult as I imagined it to be :) The more organized I was beforehand, the easier it seemed to flow each day. The kids enjoyed it and even begged for more school throughout the day, on the weekend, and on the holiday - I was pleasantly surprised!

The MFW curriculum starts with a teaching on creation, with the kids creating a book on the 7 days of creation. Noah got to cut, stamp, color and glue his little heart out over this lesson and he really enjoyed it. It was a great way to break us all into school since it was a pretty simple lesson each day for each day of creation.

Here is Optimus' book

By day 3 I had learned to pre-cut some small pieces and have them in individual baggies for the kids to use when it came time to work on the page.

Millie's book. I had NO CLUE she would be as involved as she is. So here are some of her pages in her creation book :)

I had a great experience, which is really good since I had so much anxiety over starting.


  1. Hi Kim! You visited my blog a couple of weeks ago, but somehow I never got the comment in my email. (Darn computers!) I just happened to stumble on your comment on my blog and thought I'd drop by and say "Hi," and I'm so glad I did.

    First of all, your kids' creation books look great! I'd say your year is off to a smooth start! :) Secondly, I can't believe I found someone else with a Millie!!!!! (Is she really Camille, by any chance?) And finally, your About Me blurb had me cracking up!! I can SO RELATE!! We don't raise goats, we don't wear matching clothes, we don't drive a 15-passenger van (although we did just become a minivan family this summer--YIKES!) ... we're just a regular family who is choosing to be obedient to this crazy life God has called us to. And we're trusting Him to lead us 100% of the way!

    Blessings to you!! :)

  2. Oops - it wasn't the About Me blurb. It was the Why This Blog blurb. Love it! :)
