this is our home, this is our school.

our spring semester of school was fabulous.  days off for museums. a deep dive into viking studies. tea time with our great grandmas and lots of baseball and horseback riding.  it's a continual paradigm shift for me to see all of life and each and every experience as their very education, but it is completely worth all of the prayer and forced removal of expectations to get my mind and heart to where they are right now. these are the days. this is our home. this is our school. 
this is our life. 

fine arts center. 

little sis waits for her turn on Four.  that messy red braid? too much. 

how many more pictures will i get with a cocked little red head in pig tails?

this day we did not do math.  we did not do spelling.  
we watched youtube videos about the history of the costumes from all of the Star Wars movies and then went to the Denver Art Museum to see them all on display.  
this was the day i stood at my kitchen sink weeping with gratitude for the freedom the Lord has brought to our homeschool this year. 

all about spelling outside.
