Best Tips For Camping When Pregnant

This guide to camping when pregnant will go perfect for any pregnancy that is not high risk. If you do have a high risk pregnancy, please consult with your doctor first and make sure they give you the okay to make the trip. Other women that I know who have gone camping while pregnant have chosen to sleep on the ground instead and just use a very comfortable pad. Remember to always take precautions, talk to your doctor, listen to your body, be prepared, and find a camping spot close to the bathrooms.

C-Section Hospital Bag: Full Packing List

WHAT TO PACK IN YOUR C-SECTION HOSPITAL BAG Packing for your c-section hospital bag for recovery is very important. Unscented Salve or Eye Cream: I use this Unscented Salve from Bend Soap for my eyes before going to sleep to help feel more rejuvenated in the morning. Some of these will help keep you more comfortable during you c-section recovery while others will be to keep your spouse or support person comfortable during their stay at the hospital with you. Nursing pillow: I highly recommend the Boppy pillow but if you are having a c-section then I recommend using the hospital pillows and nursing in a football hold position to make things easier on your abdomen.

Top 10 Homeschooling Questions Answered

Some christian curriculums give you the option to buy the Bible class separately so don't get frustrated if you see a christian curriculum that you like and avoid it just cause of the christian aspect. In every class you will learn about a Christian lifestyle and even in some classes like Reading, Phonics, and English, your child will use the Bible to do their seat work and learn about the different stories in the Bible. I use the crate system with our Abeka curriculum and the book system with the Rod and Staff curriculum. As your child gets older I find that the book system works best but for younger kids it's easier for them to see a few sheets of paper and not feel overwhelmed by a big book.

Best Pregnancy Skincare Routine and All Natural Products

Whether it's to avoid or blend in stretch marks, just to alleviate the itching that comes with pregnancy or just to take care of your skin during this time, it is important to do the best possible to have a good skincare routine each day. You will also find tips on how to blend, heal, and even avoid stretch marks during pregnancy regardless of your genetics and family background. After applying the oil to my skin I would then apply my favorite lavender lotion from Bend Soap Co. β€’ Make sure to wash your face very well at the end of the day or the event and apply a face moisturizer like Bend Soap lotion as well as some Bend Soap Salve around your eyes for extra moisture.

Last week I decided to announce my pregnancy. I was so scared as to what others would think during this time we are living in but I was so overwhelmed in joy and happiness with all of the comments and messages I received from you all. I am truly thankful for everyone's kind words. It truly means the world to me. I can't even begin to put my appreciation into words. πŸ₯°πŸ’•πŸ€°β£ ⁣ With this new chapter in our lives I plan to share parts of my pregnancy on here like being outdoors while pregnant, camping, hiking, etc... When we all can go out for again that is. πŸ•β£ ⁣ As I am planning new content, I wanted to ask you all what kind of stuff you would like to see more of during the coming months. Any pregnancy related posts? Homeschooling? Nature activities for kids?

Let's talk about transitioning from public school to homeschooling. Since public schools have closed, many people have found themselves homeschooling. Many seem to be frustrated with the idea of homeschooling while others are absolutely loving it but it is not all bad.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Many kids struggle with the transition. When I started homeschooling, Bella was in first grade. She had gone to public school for Kindergarten and a Christian Academy for Pre-K. I'm not going to sugar coat it. The first few weeks was not easy. There were days I wanted to quit and send her back to public school but I kept telling myself that it would be worth it in the end... and IT IS!!!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Here are a few tips to help with the transition:⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ β€’ Have a schedule and stick to it.⁣⁣ β€’ Make it fun! Do hands on activities with your kids, arts and crafts, sing, or have school outside. Be creative and make it enjoyable for both you and your kids.⁣⁣ β€’ Start the day off right with a morning basket. We haven't done these in a while but they are fun to do. In our basket we have our devotion, coloring pages, books, activities, flashcards, and more.⁣⁣ β€’ Be patient. I know this is easier said than done. TRUST ME!!! I have definitely lost my patience with my kids. It happens but try your best to be patient and understanding.⁣⁣ β€’ Have a designated school area. This will put in their minds that when they are there it is school time!⁣⁣ β€’ Have breaks. If you see your child is frustrated let them take a small break from that class. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I have more tips to share but IG only let's me write so much on here πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ Blog post soon to come. πŸ˜‰β£β£ ⁣⁣ How is your transition going? Any fun things that you and your kids are doing together this week?⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #twmblog #homeschoolers #homeeducator #homeschoollife #homeeducation #homeschooldays #homeschoolfamily #learningathome #childledlearning #homeschoolcollective #thisishomeschool #homelearning #homeschoolmom #homeschoolrocks #thisishomeschool #intentionalhomeschooling #homeschoolblog #homeschoolcollective #homeschoolmama #livinghomeschool #homeschooler #learnathome #motherhoodiscolorful #theoutdoorchild #outdoorfamily #adventurefamily #familytravelblogger

Check out these adorable ceramic pots. 😍🌼🌷⁣ ⁣ Yesterday I shared a photo of the girls painting their pots so I figured I'd share the finished outcome today. It's hard to see a little since they're hugging them but they're so creative and cute. ⁣ ⁣ I had a few people ask me what items I used. My husband kind of threw the curve ball at me so I didn't have the right brushes but we used these items to paint them. ⁣ ⁣ β€’ Ceramic Pots⁣ β€’ Acrylic Paint (it'll hold better and last longer.)⁣ β€’ Paint Brushes or Sponge Brushes⁣ β€’ A cup of water to clean your brushes.⁣ β€’ Cardboard to avoid messes. Not sure if it really worked though. lol⁣ β€’ Rags to clean dirty fingers and messes. ⁣ ⁣ We also used glow in the dark paint and glitter acrylic paint. You can find these at Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, Michael's, and sometimes in Target. You can also order them online on Amazon or any of these stores to play at safe. Don't forget to disinfect the items upon arrival to make sure there is no spread of the virus during this time. ⁣ ⁣ How would you paint your pot? ⁣ ⁣ I would of painted mine like a rainbow with different colors and then glow in the dark paint between each line amd tons of glitter. ⁣ ⁣ #twmblog #homeschoolers #homeeducator #homeschoollife #homeeducation #homeschooldays #homeschoolfamily #learningathome #childledlearning #homeschoolcollective #thisishomeschool #homelearning #homeschoolmom #homeschoolrocks #thisishomeschool #intentionalhomeschooling #homeschoolblog #homeschoolcollective #homeschoolmama #livinghomeschool #homeschooler #learnathome #childhoodwonders #atdiff_kids #motherhoodiscolorful #artsandcraftsforkids #craftymom #springactivities

Making the most of this beautiful weather amd social distancing. ⁣ ⁣ This weekend we decided to let the girls paint two pots and plant some flowers. πŸ–ŒπŸŒΊ They used all sorts of colors, even glitter paint and glow in the dark paint. Things got a little messy too but so totally worth it. Hoping to continue to do different activities to keep them entertained during this time since they can't play with other kids at the moment. Praying all this gets better soon. ⁣ ⁣ How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun or exciting? Or maybe even accomplished anything you've been wanting to tackle for a while? ⁣ ⁣ #twmblog #homeschoolers #homeeducator #homeschoollife #homeeducation #homeschooldays #homeschoolfamily #learningathome #childledlearning #homeschoolcollective #thisishomeschool #homelearning #homeschoolmom #homeschoolrocks #thisishomeschool #intentionalhomeschooling #homeschoolblog #homeschoolcollective #homeschoolmama #livinghomeschool #homeschooler #learnathome #familytravelblogger #childhoodwonders #atdiff_kids #motherhoodiscolorful #springactivities #artsandcraftsforkids

This week we have been doing school but definitely taking it easy. ⁣ ⁣ On Tuesday my youngest, Isa, woke up with a sinus infection. Poor thing has been recovering from it and has almost lost her voice. It's so sad hearing her trying to sing and talk. We decided to give her a day off to rest. No fever or anything. Just to be safe we talked with her doctor to rule out the scary COVID-19 and all is good. πŸ™ She is doing much better today. Still a sore throat but very happy and active. ⁣ ⁣ My oldest has been playing catch up on a few classes we fell behind on. Math, English, Phonics, and Reading are the ones we have been focusing on this week the most. ⁣ ⁣ Talking about classes. What classes did you enjoy when you were in school? Or which ones do your kids enjoy the most in school? ⁣ ⁣ My favorite classes were Math and Science. Not chemistry though. Mostly Biology related topics and science experiments. ⁣ ⁣ #twmblog #homeschoolers #homeeducator #homeschoollife #homeeducation #homeschooldays #homeschoolfamily #learningathome #childledlearning #homeschoolcollective #thisishomeschool #homelearning #homeschoolmom #homeschoolrocks #thisishomeschool #intentionalhomeschooling #homeschoolblog #homeschoolcollective #homeschoolmama #livinghomeschool #homeschooler #learnathome #childhoodwonders #motherhoodiscolorful

It has been so rainy here. I can truly say that I miss the sun and days at the park. β˜€οΈβ˜” Last weekend we took advantage and went to some local parks. We practiced proper social distancing from everyone and I'm glad that others were too. Some would even walk another route just to avoid us. 🦠 It was truly heartbreaking not allowing the girls to play on the playground though. We just walked alongside the Cumberland River. They begged but were very understanding of the current situation at hand after we explained things to them. πŸ’• As things progress we are finding ourselves even more isolated. My husband is running any errands at the stores right now just to keep us safe and I couldn't be any more thankful for having him here. However, I do say a quick prayer every time he walks out that door that he stays safe during his time. πŸ™ As for now, we are looking for some positivity in our day. I'm pulling out a notebook for each of the girls and will be using it to bring life to our days. I'm having them draw or paint something that made them smile today. It can be the flowers blooming outside, the buds on the trees, the birds flying, or even a ladybug or a caterpillar. Whatever makes them smile and keeps them smiling. πŸ›πŸžπŸŒΊπŸŒ³πŸ–Œ What are some thing that's you are doing with your kids to bring some happiness into their days? Let me know below. Would love to hear your ideas. #twmblog #takethekids #bringthekids #adventureswithchildren #theoutdoorchild #outdoorfamily #adventurefamily #kidswhoexplore #hikingwithkids #outdoorfamily #familyhike #learningathome #childledlearning #homeschoolcollective #thisishomeschool #homelearning #homeschoolmom #lifestylephoto #instalifestyle #beautyobsessed #allaboutbeauty #photography_ #canonlife #comfortableclothing #instafahion #travelphotograpy #travelnotes #perfectcollective #stylpcs5

LET'S CHANGE THINGS UP A BIT! ⁣ ⁣ Due to a lot of new current circumstances, my feed is going to be a little mix of lifestyle, homeschool, and outdoor travel (once we are FREE to roam again! 🀣). ⁣ ⁣ Today I want to share a picture of our first day of school for this school year. Back when our classroom wasn't a chaotic mess. 🀣 ⁣ ⁣ Most days we do our school in our pajamas. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ Sometimes the girls dress up in their favorite super hero costumes. πŸ¦Ήβ€β™€οΈ And other days they get themselves dressed. I like to call these days tacky diva mix matched days. πŸ™ˆ They're still cute. ⁣ ⁣ Our main class focus for school is Math, Reading, English, Spelling, Phonics, and Handwriting. We also add classes like Geography, Science, Arts and Crafts, Nature Study, Health, and History but I don't push it every day if they already seem tired by the end of the day. ⁣ ⁣ We also change up some of our classes and do some fun activities instead. We all need a cheat day right. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ ⁣ ⁣ As we open up our homeschooling journey with you more, is there anything in particular that you want to learn more about? Curriculums that I use? Class supplements? Routines? Let me know in the comments. I would love to share all the tips I can with you. ⁣ ⁣ PS: If you are looking for a few activities for your kiddos then don't forget to check out my Etsy Shop (linked on our site) or my Resource Library (link in bio). ⁣ ⁣ #twmblog #homeschoolers #homeeducator #homeschoollife #homeeducation #homeschooldays #homeschoolfamily #learningathome #childledlearning #homeschoolcollective #thisishomeschool #homelearning #homeschoolmom #homeschoolrocks #thisishomeschool #intentionalhomeschooling #homeschoolroom #ourhomeschoollife #homeschooling #homeschool
