Meet Our Homeschoolers!

Yesterday marked our first "official" day of homeschool. You can only plan for so long before inevitably you have to start :) 

Here are our little learners . . . 

Kate (age 4.5)  Kindergarten

Technically, she should be in Pre-K, but since we did that last year and she's ready for Kindergarten work, that's what we'll be doing. 

Kate is our little Mommy: She's always mothering her baby sisters and carrying them around, so it's not surprising that her favorite thing to play is "Mama & Little Girls" with her sisters. 

Favorite Colors ("Mama, can I pick 3?" she asked): red, pink, & purple

Favorite Movie: Cinderella 

Favorite Food: Macaroni & Cheese

When Kate grows up, she wants to be a Mama.

She really likes flowers and really does not like uncooked rice (not sure about that one :) )

Her favorite thing about herself is her hair.

She's very excited about school!

Cora (age 2.5) Preschool

This spunky little girl wants to do whatever big sissy is doing, so I have some fun Sing, Spell, Read, & Write activities planned for her as well as some hands-on math. Plus, she'll be sitting with us as we do all the other subjects.

Cora is our crazy kid. She's always cracking us up with her zany sense of humor, and she loves being the center of attention, except when she's pretending to be shy. Cora loves to "read" her books, which is about the only thing that keeps her sitting still.

Favorite Color: Blue

Favorite Book: Cinderella

Favorite Food: Mac & Cheese 

When Cora grows up, she wants to be a Mama.

She really likes note pads and really does not like "mean chairs." (huh?)

Her favorite thing about herself is her hair (as she runs her through her fingers). [Note to self: Work on vanity character issues with my kids :)]

Cora, too, is excited about school.

Annabeth (age 15 months) Tot School

Technically not in school of any kind, Annabeth is learning each and every day how to survive and makes animal sounds and grunts to get our undivided attention.

Annabeth loves food. She could and would eat all day if I let her.

Her favorite book is Goodnight, Moon.

She really likes food and really does not like those few minutes when there is no food to eat.

Annabeth is excited about school because she knows she'll probably be bribed to silence with her favorite thing: food. 

Those are our homeschoolers! Aren't they a cute bunch?


  1. Cute girls! My youngest is Hannah Beth. I love two-name names. Blessings on your school year!

  2. How sweet! I love the mini-interview idea. :) Having three girls is a lot of fun - enjoy the beginning of your year!

  6. Yes, ladies, we are very blessed! Thanks for the encouragement!!

  7. I thought I had hit publish on when I commented before, but I guess I didn't. Anyway, I just said that you'll have no problem teaching those little smarties. :) Thanks for introducing to you sweet girls. BTW, Annabeth is a girl after my own heart. ;) They're adorable!

    1. Thanks, Jillian. Yes, Annabeth is much like her Mama, too :)
