During a rainy day on our vacation, my husband and our lil one snuck away from the other half of the family and went on a secret trip across the street from our hotel to Mikki D's. It was so cutely decorated with all kinds of Coastal decor including these cute lil' lobsters! Of course I had to snap a picture of one of them with our cutie pie.
I had so much fun doing this layout and I wanted it to reflect the silly moment we shared with our lobster buddy! Whimsy and colorful is how I would describe how the page turned out!
Capturing those special times and preserving those treasured moments is my favorite way to unwind!
Last week, I did a quick thrift hauI! Usually, I spend more time at the thrift stores but I think i was in between bringing and picking up kids from practice. I stopped at Parson's closet to look for a purse but I didn't come out with one. Instead I got these two pretty sweaters! I have always like fusia, that was my wedding color, so when I spotted these two pretties, I grabbed them up!
and this pretty was $2!
Hobby Lobby had these stickers and I was thrilled to find the ones by Mambi because they are actually the same prints that are in my planner! I am using them to make removable insert cards. Motivational quotes are so wonderful.
Fall is in the air so I thought these would be perfect for Sept., Oct. and Nov. Planner accents. You can find these for $1 at A.C. Moore.
This is on of my insert cards. I just used a sticker, come card stock and a self laminating sheet from $Tree. Later, I taped on an insert tab to be able to take it in and out of my planner!
Late Summer is a great time to thrift shop for the upcoming fall season. I t is also a great time to plan because there are so many fall activities to do with the family: hay rides, apple picking, pumpkin festivals, baking with cinnamon and all of those wonderful smelling spices!
I would love to hear your favorite fall ideas and /or treats!
There is a craze of planning on the internet lately! some very talented women have found a creative way to bring planning to a whole new level. I have been following Help! Mama Remote, she is a talented lady who shares her love of planning, Bible journaling, etc.
I am trying to set up the weekly pages according to our homeschooling classes, dinner making @ 12:00, and the kids soccer practices and games. I will also include Dr. appointments and special family occasions as well.
The process includes using washi tape, scrapbook paper, stickers, stamps, markers and pens. It can be kept simple or made as elaborate as you want! I t is a great way to use up scraps from previous scrapbook projects!
These cute soccer stamps have been a fun addition to the spaces where I write in my kids sports dates. I picked them up at A.C. Moore about $2.
That is my spread for this upcoming week, hope you enjoy it! Happy Planning!
I am keeping all of my children's lesson plan's in a three ring binder this year. I am keeping it in order of grade level from youngest to oldest. Today, I am sharing some of my second graders lesson plans.
These are my new monthly printout sheets, I have each month listed with the dates going straight down, all in one column. This one is September through January.
Sheet #2 is February through June.
I like to print out a picture of the book to keep with the plans just as a visual.
I also like to print out the table of contents because this is what I use to help me break down the book for the school year.
Our continent study is broken down into one continent per month. We will add library books and other hands on activities as we go: maps, videos, recipes, etc.
Writing is very important to me as a home school teacher and a mom, last year my older children focused on paragraph writing and various writer's notebook entries. I thought this book would be a great way for my second grader to begin a young writer's journal.
The table of contents is already broken up by months so all I had to do was copy it into my planning sheets.
This workbook will give her the main spine for my daughter's language arts program. we will add other activities and games as well.
This is a good start to our 2nd grade yearly plan. I will be working on her other subjects until September when we will begin our new year.
I picked out a few books from Dover Publications for visual aides to our bible study this year. We are using " The Catholic Youth Bible" for the main core of our religion program. It has really great commentaries on the scriptures right in the bible itself. So we will read the bible, discuss, read over the commentary and then use the workbooks accordingly.
I hope you enjoy spending some time here! if you did please leave a comment because I love to meet new people! I would enjoy reading your blogs as well! Have a wonderful day and may you know the love of God in your life!
