Accidental learning... Have you ever ended up covering a complete lesson that was unplanned and out of schedule, only because you stumbled upon something? This happened to us yesterday and it was so fun! We started by discussing bitterness, which lead to us reading Johnny Appleseed’s ValueTale story on love. All of a sudden everyone craved apples, so why not study them while we ate some? Oh, and we found a documentary on Johnny Appleseed that we also watched while eating the apples! It never fails that these unplanned, unscheduled, and out of nowhere lessons are the ones we all enjoy the most. I’m guilty of over-planning, which always sets me up for failure and disappointment. But when I let go of all of that control and just become present in the moment I realize what truly matters and what my role as a homeschool mom really is. P.S. If you’re teaching multiple age groups and need to reuse curriculum, get yourself a set of PocketPro dry erase pockets by @smartstartkidz. You can find them in my Amazon store for less than $10 when you apply the coupon “pocketpro20”. . . . #homeschoollife #homeschoolmom #homeschooladvice #homeschoolinspiration #unitstudy #unitstudies #characterbuilding #characterbuildingbook #valuetales #johnnyappleseed #appleunit #applestudy #teachingfromrest #thisishowwehomeschool #homeschoolflatlays #magicofchildhood #enchantedlearning #iny102220L #gfw102220L #dad102220LS

What homeschooling may look like... I say may because it can be as fluid as water. One minute you’ll find us gathered at the dining table working through a unit study together, and another with one kid hanging from a tree reciting some vocab words and the other sitting on the driveway with his headphones blasting music while working through some pre-algebra problems. This was such a nightmare to me two years ago when we started homeschooling. Why couldn’t they sit at their desks and pay attention? Why did they have to move so much? Why were they disrespecting me with their demonstrations of boredom and their requests for endless snacks? Why couldn’t they just get the work done and be done with it? Simple, because they weren’t meant to do any of those things the way I wanted them to! It took me some time, but I now understand that it’s not my job to try and replicate school at home... not one bit! And it’s not yours either. I love these lines from The Wild + Free book: “Our children need our time, not our intelligence. They bloom with love, not perfect language skills. They need mercy, not intellectual mastery.” Take a breath mama, you’re probably doing more than enough. Read with your kids, let them explore, ditch the worksheets for the day and go on a field trip. I promise you that learning does happen... anytime, anywhere! . . . #homeschool #homeschoollife #homeschooling #homeschoolers #homeschoollifestyle #homeschooler #homeschoolmamacollective #homeschooladventures #lifeschooling #eclectichomeschool #homeeducation #livingeducation #living_homeschool #fortheloveofhomeschooling #homeschoolcurriculum #intentionalhomeschooling #hereisourhomeschool #homeschoolcollective #homeschool365 #365homeschool #wildandfreehomeschool #wildandfreekids #homeschooladvice #gfw101520L #dad101520LS

Oh, happy day! Say hello to the first Apple cider vinegar gummy by @goligummy. We’ve been taking shots of #ACV every morning for who knows how long, and we still cringed every time. Finally there’s a yummy alternative! We’re all so happy we can get all the amazing benefits of ACV without the yucky taste. Seriously, these gummies taste AMAZING! So if you’re ready to make the switch or want to give ACV a try for the first time, check these out, and use my code “NICHOLE5” for a discount. . . . #ad #GoliNutrition #ACVGummies #Tastetheapple #applecidervinegar #applecidervinegardetox #healthandwellbeing #organicsupplements #immunityboost #immunitysupport #healthyfamilies #gfw101420L #iny101420L #OCTLS14

“If we want our children to move mountains, we first have to let them get out of their chairs.” Nicolette Sowder This is not a concept that was easy for me to grasp as we transitioned away from the public school system, but thankfully it hasn’t taken us that long to adopt. Trying to replicate school at home was the most boring and frustrating thing I tried to do. Especially with boys who can’t. sit. still. EVER! This third year has been our best one yet, with lots of physical activity and play. We have now added a ninja warrior class to the mix with the Ninja Line Intro Kit that @gentleboomssports so generously gifted us. It’s mind blowing how much better students they are after they’ve spent sometime outside. Could it be because exercise enhances brain development??? Do your kids a favor and send them outside! And if you’re in the market for a Family Obstacle Course, you can find it in my Amazon store under toys. . . . #playlikeaninja #gentleboomssports #gbs #gbsninjaline #ninjaline #linkjoint #letthembelittle #letthemplay #letthemexplore #wildandfreekids #exploringnaturewithchildren #thisisourhomeschool #natureschool #childhoodunplugged #homeschoolers #homeschoollife #howchildrenlearn #outdoorclassroom #motherhoodunplugged #focusonthefamily #documentyourdays #magicofchildhood #motherhoodsimplified #our_everyday_moments #kidsexercise #ninjawarrior #activekids #homeschoolperks #iny101520L #OCTLS15

Yay for glowing skin! 🙌🏽 The new Hydro Masque Exfoliant that @Dermalogica gifted me is such a dream! It exfoliates + hydrates in just one step and in under five minutes (because who has time for more?!). So to all my fellow extra busy homeschool mamas out there, this is the one product you want to try if you want to say goodbye to dull skin! And because I know you care, the product is vegan, has no artificial fragrances and colors, and is paraben and cruelty-free! . . . #dermalogicagiftedme @dermalogica #feelthespheres #octolyfamily #skincareforwomen #skincare #skincareroutine #skincareproducts #momcare #homeschoolmomlife #busymom #busymomlife #mombloggers #momfluencer #gfw1012 #iny101220L #dad101220LS
