So, Pinterest has actually really helped me find some amazing homeschooling activities! No I will not be homeschooling my kids....props to the teachers out there..and especially the real-deal Homeschooling moms, but I am the first to admit I was never cut out to be a teacher!
I've been stacking away a ton of ideas and although the thought of it all really overwhelms me (oiy! the prep!!), I'm excited to become more engaged with the boys during the day.
Yesterday, Ollie and I actually had a really fun day doing activities together while Austin was napping. On top of that, an added bonus was that Oliver was actually so much more well behaved throughout the day and listened to me, was less grumpy and seemed happier! I feel
I probably won't be doing this every day, but maybe 3 times a week we'll crack out the learning tools and I'll get my teach on!

(Lulu decided to jump up and watch...she has a thing for pencils so I think she was waiting for Ollie to drop it!)
(mind the glob of peanut butter on his lip...we just had snack!)
Next up, I'm going to attempt to make a DIY lightbox. I think Austin will really enjoy all the neat things we can do with that!!
