For the hour and a half underground cave tour (where we’re asked not to touch anything as the oils in our skin erode the beautiful geology of the cave walls), my kids were following the tour guide, soaking up every word, looking everywhere he pointed, and quietly asking questions.
.
At the end of the tour, the guide had the entire group (all adults other than my 3 kids) applaud for how “well behaved” our kids were. He went on and on about how their “good behavior” made the tour so enjoyable for everyone else and offered them a special sticker as a reward.
.
Then he went on and on to my husband and I: “The children are always so terrible! Well, I guess I should probably say the parents are terrible!”
.
His implication was that we more firmly discipline our children but they weren’t “good” out of a fear of punishment. Respect begets respect, connection begets cooperation, and freedom begets participation. My children know that if they have a need, we will honestly try to find a way to meet it. So they extend that to others (caves and tour guides).

It’s the little things that can make a day...like grapes that pop in your mouth.
Creating a new meal plan is rough when you have a big family and your husband hates veggies. That’s when you have to get a little creative...stay tuned 😎
What are some of your favorite healthy snacks??

Fun with matching! We got this “Seek-A-Boo” game at a consignment sale and I decided to use some of the cards for matching real items around the house. We also played the actual game where you match a small card to a big card. I thought it was interesting how L would only match the items she was interested in like dog (not shown here), banana, and apple. Also, she got distracted by the fruit and just wanted to eat the real ones 😂😂😂 I would recommend this game because it improves memory and teaches vocabulary.

It is hard to believe it has already been 3 years since this guy inspired me to make a change! Love the koozies and cups they sent us to celebrate ❤️ I had gained more than I had wanted to during my pregnancy with him and now that I was STILL seeing a number I really didn't like on the scale and feeling it physically and mentally months after his birth PANIC set in. It was then that I knew I was going to kick the extra weight!! Not only that...I wanted to do something that really changed not only the number on the scale, but truly help me become the healthy, energetic mom I wanted to be.
That's where this shake came in (along with starting a fitness program). It was just the stepping stone I needed to start my journey into a healthier lifestyle. Honestly, I never imagined I would drink it more than a month. But somehow here I am 3 years later still attesting to this nutrient dense meal replacement. I don't think I have ever continuously purchased ANYTHING that long. So here is why I continue: - I love the taste! Who doesn't want to drink something that tastes like a milkshake each day?😋
- I love the superfood ingredients. The nutrional quality and care is amazing!
- I enjoy the increased energy
- I love that it helped me lose 30 lbs and maintain!
- It is an easy meal for me and my hubby. Even a great snack for my kids. Everyone wins! 🎉
- I love that it fills me up and reduces my cravings.

I could go on and on, but I won't because in reality I think 3 years speaks VOLUMES!
Are you curious about this tool and others that have helped me so much? I have a special opportunity for you!🎈 You can have the chance to get some awesome discounts from me, as well a chance at a gift card! You have to reach out to me before tomorrow night on this one though!!

It's more than just throwing a ball around! It's teaching #kids to focus, compete, and work as a team!

👣Practical Life Work👣
Super easy activity to throw together, could even toss your toddler the socks in a pile as you're folding the laundry! My 2 year old would rather rock on his horse, but he will sometimes avoid playing with what the 3yr old is working on anyhow. Grayson really enjoyed this activity, and i had to go find more socks to try to challenge him- but no luck! His recognition skills seem to be mastered! Now to work on how to roll them together. (And yes, those are boots. He wears his snow boots all day everyday since he picked them out last weekend.)

Here's some vintage Sonlight! Who remembers these books? Look how love-worn they are! What was once called Core 1, then Core B is now called History / Bible / Literature B. They aren't just books. They aren't just homeschool curriculum. They are provide direction for our children! 💛🔆💛 #📷 @em_dempster So Ally and Chelsea started Core B today and these dear old books... they are about the same ages Jess and I were when we did them more than 15 years ago 😱😱 I love these books and that core (I knew it as Core 1!). I loved them then, but more so now because I honestly believe it was these books and Core B that planted seeds in me and my sisters and directed us along the paths we are on today. Mum and Dad brought us up in church and taught us how to serve the church, but @sonlightcurriculum has a massive part to play in our lives. These books were the beginning of our lives, where I am now finishing up my degree in ministry and looking towards credentials; @jessellen69 is pouring her heart out on the mission field; @beth_krieger and her husband dedicate themselves heart and soul to the local church; and @sammy.joy.164 is looking towards doing Bible College. Sonlight - thankyou. We are ever grateful for the part these books have had in our lives and how the spark they lit in us has kept us pursuing Jesus and spreading the Kingdom throughout our school years and into adulthood. 🌞

Mittens Making has begun. So many beautiful sweaters to make these from this season. What colors would you like to see show up in my inventory this year? The first five will be done by end of tomorrow.
Don’t forget that these make perfect Christmas gifts (with a coordinating hat) and I will be at the local Loving Water Lutheran church Dec. 1st for a fun Ladies Day Put shopping day. So be sure and plan to come shop local and support the families like mine who do these events to give our families a beautiful christmas🎄

I missed posting my Day 13 of Fall Outside prompt of seeds so here it is today with Day 14’s Wind.
.
.
It’s unusually warm here for our region. Yesterday plus 8 Celsius and today plus 9 Celsius. With that warm weather it’s melting like crazy, kids are wearing sweaters out and mittens are abandoned everywhere😣.
.
.
I’ll take it though, the sun felt like heaven on my face today. I felt like a kitty cat sunbathing in the sun coming through a window. We had fun searching for seeds and reading our favourite authors poem The Wind by Christina Rossetti. The kids have been playing hockey all day and evening. Love these days.♥️

Here’s the third family we want to adopt that lost their earthly possessions in the #campfire ❤️ 🙏🏼 Meet Robert & Andrea Bloom @crunchy_qi .
Childhood sweethearts, the Blooms moved to Paradise seven years ago to start afresh after the loss of their firstborn son. Robert, Andrea and their three precious kids, Sunshine (5), River (3), and Pema (1) are grieving the loss of their beautiful home and community in Paradise . Robert is a service coordinator for Far Northern Regional Center helping to provide services to those with special needs in the community and Andrea homeschools through Classical Conversations. They love to read living literature, spend time in nature and do family crafts. They are temporarily staying with family in West Sacramento while they await finding a rental and begin to rebuild in Paradise.

Let’s walk arm in arm with the Blooms as they navigate rebuilding a life after loss again. ✨ Email : tenderlyrootedinc@gmail.com for a link to the Bloom Family Wishlist @jodimockabee

It’s important to develop your skills. You know like blowing spit bubble skills, nunchuck skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills. #namethatmovie

✨Oh, how rare and beautiful you are✨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you believe those words? I certainly don’t always feel that I’m rare and beautiful, or that I’m doing A, B, and C right, or that I’m a good enough wife, mother, friend, etc. My priorities get out of balance. I focus on my flaws, perceived or otherwise. I allow comparison to get the best of me... and we all know how that ends.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But today, I’m speaking these words to my heart, standing in the TRUTH that I am fearfully + wonderfully made, that I am created in His image, and created for His glory... with intention + purpose + live. And that I am enough.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope you know that you are enough. That you, my friend, are RARE + BEAUTIFUL, too ✨🧡😌

We saw Nate the Great play today and just loved it. I feel so lucky to get to share in these field trips with my girls- when they were in school I worked so I never was able to chaperone. #aspaciouslife #homeschoolmama

Une maman homeschooler canadienne très inspirante à suivre... croyez vous comme @wildandgrow qu’il y aie de belles opportunités d’apprentissages en immergeant vos enfants dans la nature? En les laissant s’y connecter au moins chaque jour?
Avec la vague de froid nouvellement arrivée ici, c’est une question intéressante il me semble n’est ce pas? 😅

Homeschooling misconception….. I have a ton of patience with my children.

Do you see Wes' eye roll when someone asks if *I* have patience?! haha!

Usually when I tell someone that I homeschool, the first thing I hear is, "Oh man, I could never do that. I don't have enough patience." Please don't think I'm some super mom or that the Lord gave me an extra dose of patience! BELIEVE ME, I love my kids to pieces, but they still get on my nerves!!! Sometimes I will go put to my office and just get some business work done and see how long it takes them to find me 🤣😆

Oh this little guys work makes my heart sing, I love how he painstakingly takes time for detail, like making it dark under the bridge with the bull ant and bright above it in the sun with the grasshopper, there is so much joy in watching their talents unfold... What talents do you see unfolding in your children that being joy to your heart?

This reminds me of one of those Find the Objects activity sheets. Can you find the coffee cup with cold coffee in it? Can you find the TWO cereal bowls left by the picky two year old? Oh! And the snacks she begged for, but refused to eat?
This is our typical workspace here. Kids with bedhead and all! But we’re getting it done. And we’re enjoying it! We ENJOY school! It’s filled with messy books, yummy snacks, and cozy blankets. Hopefully by dinner time, the table will be cleared and tidied up. Still, it feels like days like these give our plain, old dining table life. As if history is being ingrained into it’s water stained surface. Our family’s history, being written out, day after mundane day. I wonder what beautiful stories it could tell years from now.

loving this loooooooonnnng, sloooooooooow p a u s e today.
sunshine streaming through the windows,

a delicious-looking book I’ve been eager to dive into - bread & wine by @sniequist,

a yummy cup of lavender @yogitea in my teacup,

the sounds of nature just outside,
a beautiful day of inquisitiveness and thought-provoking homeschool studies with my sweet son,

the blessing of getting to work from home being creative and doing what I love and being able to help and inspire others through these callings of mine,

and to get to do all this as a single mama just blows me away! God is so good!

a slow, soul-nourishing, fresh meal about to be started to the lovely sound of an inspiring playlist,

the comforting hum of the dryer drying our clothes,

there’s something so peaceful and simple about being at home.
this is our haven - our cozy blanket, our oasis, our sanctuary of slow.
there’s just no place like home. ❤️ this is what I’ve always dreamed of,

this is where I wanna be.... so grateful to live this life, on our farm, with this glorious slow, simple living intentionality, mindfulness, and rhythm to our days. . {{ we are blessed beyond measure }}♥️✨
.
.
what are you grateful for today?

Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? Raise your hand if you're not ready. 🙋

I may not have the Thanksgiving feast planned out, but I do have some great books about Thanksgiving. I am currently in love with anything from Gail Gibbons and I may have a book problem because I own almost all her books.🤦 Gail Gibbons's book on Thanksgiving is very beautiful and very simple. It tells about Thanksgiving in a way that even the wiggliest of the little boys can sit through.

The other book (swipe 👉) The Pilgrim's First Thanksgiving, goes into more details about Thanksgiving. The pictures are beautiful and I really like how much information is in it.

I don’t know how she does it - she has a knack for finding hidden treasures all around her. Feathers, tiny caterpillars, patterns in the clouds, interesting textures and juxtaposition of colors, but not just that. She draws and paints and creates prolifically. Unendingly. I hope hope hope she never stops. She is such an interesting, kind, and humble soul. I’m so excited to see what she does as she grows, and I’m so glad I can offer her an environment wherein her curiosity can be fostered and nourished 💜
