If you’ve been following along with what we’ve been up to lately, then you probably already know that we’re at home full-time now. Oh, and the little guy is just about 2 1/2, so I also thought it might be time to switch things up again. Say what? Yep! Soon, the little guy will trade Little Goose for Experience God. Out with the old and in with the new, right?
Today marked a huge turning point for us. It was our very first day of working from home. And it was of course all kinds of awesome. Yep, that’s one of my favorite expressions. Have you noticed? Lol… Our topic for the day was cows and, as always, Mother Goose Time thought of everything and then some.
Not too long ago, I accepted a full-time work-at-home position and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about it. I had prayed so hard and for so long about homeschooling. I may or may not have already mentioned how much of a blessing Mother Goose Time has been for us and of course I definitely feel like my prayers were answered and then some. I can’t even believe it.
We were so excited to get started with our Down on the Farm theme from Mother Goose Time. Yep! My little goose was definitely ready to go. And I totally love the expression on his face. Talk about priceless. One of the little guy’s favorite things is of course the two sets of manipulatives that come with each month’s curriculum kit. This month was no exception.
Not too long ago, I was reminiscing about how far the little guy has come and of course how quickly. It seems like just yesterday that we got our very first little yellow school bus box. We were both so excited to get started. I brought the box in, put it on the studio floor, and we opened it together.
The little guy and I are seriously in love with the new invitation to create activities that are part of our Mother Goose Time preschool curriculum this year. I’m all about the process of creating. And he seems to be too. We have an insane amount of art supplies around here and he even has lots of his own stuff.
We started working on the Me & My Family theme from Mother Goose Time last weekend and we’re seriously lovin’ the brand-spankin’-new “invitation to create” activities that are now included in each month’s curriculum kit.
Not too long ago, I mentioned giving y’all an overview of a typical day using Timberdoodle & Sonlight w/ Mother Goose Time, so here it goes. We are absolutely head over heels in love with Mother Goose Time. Ditto with Timberdoodle. And of course Sonlight too.
We’re unfortunately just about to wrap up our Science Lab curriculum kit from Mother Goose Time. I could seriously do experiments every day and I’m sure the little guy could too. We love all things creative and curious around here. The topic for today was Fasteners and it was definitely a blast.
We’re still movin’ & groovin’ with our Science Lab curriculum kit from Mother Goose Time. And today, it was all about structures. Lots of fun! There was definitely a lot of doing our own thing with today’s topic, though. Actually, for the first time since we’ve started getting Mother Goose Time, we skipped the Banana and Stick Structures “tray play.”
