And then he just picked up the 'Choose Your Own Adventure' book and read it. I was so excited and he loved seeing me so thrilled! I made a huge deal and his smile was huge 💚
He's also excited to hear that he doesn't need to read Bob Books if he's reading other books like this. 😊
I've got to get my hands on more of these...

We aren't doing much 'formal' preschool learning for him yet since he's only 3 - but we do little things here and there.  A lot of it right now is just activities like these 'melty beads'. He LOVES doing this and he's so quick! A great fine motor activity. 🌈

We recorded the progress of the eclipse in our nature journals! What an incredibly beautiful thing to witness. I honestly didn't fully appreciate the eclipse until it was actually happening - and then I was completely giddy with excitement!

One of the three cutest things I've ever made - wearing mama-made @studiomishaandpuff bloomers and my favorite onesie from @miloscorner ❤️ -

I have three sweaters on my needles and they are just taking forever to finish. I needed something quick to knit so I could FINISH something. I decided to make a popcorn bonnet to match these little overalls I made to fit my littlest boy this fall. The overalls are my design - Bobble Cable Overalls (link in bio). The bonnet pattern is by @studiomishaandpuff. Won't he just look charming in this little outfit? 😍
"Mama! I don't like hats!" Well, he has a knitter for a mama - so he'll just have to learn to! 😉
Bloomers and hat patterns are from @studiomishaandpuff and I LOVE them. I've made a few of both patterns and there will be more to come! And those Zutano booties are so special yo me. All 3 of my newborn boys have worn them - and lots. 💙 -

I thought I'd share what we will be doing for math this year in first grade! He got through Math-U-See Primer last year and he'll be working through Alpha this year. To save some money, I just bought the student workbook rather than the whole pack - and I bought base ten blocks from amazon rather than buying the set from Math-U-See. So far these are working just fine. Apart from this book, I went on education.com and printed off several lessons on topics such as time, money, measurement, shapes, etc. We are using a variety of manipulatives and such - an IKEA clock, wooden 3-D shapes, tangrams, dice, flash cards, counters, play money, board games, etc. My main goal is to teach him in a way that doesn't make him hate math (this is hard!). Sometimes that means ending a lesson a little early if I can see him slipping in that direction. With homeschooling we have the freedom to do just that - and to tailor his lessons to fit his learning style. It's still something I'm learning to do - a work in progress - but I love it.
Working on a Belly Pocket Pullover (one of my designs) for my biggest boy. Using #knitpicks Swish in allspice. This boy - lover and collector of nature treasures - needs a good belly pocket to store what he finds when out! -

Documenting H's feather find from our hike yesterday in our nature journals. After some research, it looks like this is a feather from a Northern (red-shafted) Flicker. It was fun to research online what it could be then look up the bird in our field guide! -

We went on a little hike today with the boys. H went off exploring on a path with Daddy to work on an assignment for the Wild Explorers Club. He found a cool feather with some orange in it that he's curious to learn more about. Here's my little explorer with his hiking stick and feather. 💚
