Style Summary

This shirt is old but I'm not sure I'll ever be able to get rid of it - it is so much fun to wear. 

SUNDAY earrings & shoes: target, shirt: h&m, skirt: thrift, belt & bracelet: gift 

THURSDAY earrings, bracelets, & belt: ?,  jacket: tjmaxx, shirt: charlotte russe,
pants: gap, shoes: dsw 

I love the idea of outfits like this and I find them super comfortable to wear. In my mind clothes don't get much better than a soft sweater, a pretty skirt, and fun flats. It's hard to make a sweater and skirt look flattering though; I thought the belt would help but next time I'd leave it off. 

THURSDAY necklace & shoes: gift, sweater and belt: thrift, tights: target
dress worn as a skirt: florence

This was my Easter outfit, we attended our churches Saturday night service. I never thought I'd brave mixing three patterns, and truthfully this happened by accident. I multitask while putting away laundry and will hang up outfits at the same time. I had planned to pair the shirt and sweater with jeans and the skirt with a different top. However, they fell on the bed next to each other and I was instantly smitten.

SATURDAY earrings: target, shirt: jcpenny, shoes: dsw, skirt: vintage/thrift, belt:?
sweater: old - like seriously old, so old I had passed it down to my little sister a couple years
ago and just recently took it back.

Paint Chip Word Families

We haven't been doing a ton of school work this summer but we have tried to fit in a little reading practice everyday. We are currently working our way through Bob Books and The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading - I  highly recommend both. I saw this idea for paint chip word families on Pinterest several months ago and knew it would be one we'd have to try. I changed it up a little bit so that the the strips pulled through the word family cards.  

My supplies: large white paint chips, various colors of paint chips, sharpie, scissors, and an x-acto knife
 Step 1: Because my colored paint chips were so wide I folded and cut them in half.

Step 2: In the center of the white paint-chip, use the x-acto knife to cut two openings, at the top and bottom of the white square, the width of the color strip. 

Step 3: Use the sharpie to write letters on paint chips (a list of word families can be found here
Step 4: Pull strip through word family card 

 Step 5: Have fun readi…

A Visit to Nashville

Last weekend Jeremy and I took a quick trip to Nashville. We left the kids at home with Maca so it was a great mini vacation. We took overnight Mega buses there and back which was perfect except for one young man who needed convincing that, despite how expensive his headphones were, or how amazing his jams may be, nobody else wants to hear them at 2am. I may have not handle that situation in the most graceful manner. 
We got to Nashville Friday morning and after cleaning up a bit we went to Marche's in East Nashville for brunch and then explored the downtown. 

Friday night we had some crazy good food at an acclaimed local restaurant City House - the building is also very impressive. 

Saturday morning was my favorite part of the whole trip. Our friend Joni took us to a hiking trail where we marveled at Tennessee's beauty and enjoyed the almost 70 degree weather. 




The rest of Saturday was spent exploring Nashville neighborhoods and indulging in a bit of shopping and delicious f…

Preschool Syllabus: Farms

We started a new homeschool unit this week: farms. With all our harvest activities it seemed like a natural choice.  This last weekend we attended a neighboring town's scarecrow festival and we plan to go to a pumpkin farm with a barnyard petting zoo in the next couple weeks. We will focus on this unit for the rest of October.


During our rug times the boys and I will be singing a lot of farm related songs (Counting Coconuts has complied a great list) and make our way through the mass of books I checked out from the library.  I won't overwhelm you with a picture of them all but I will recommend a couple. For fiction Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin and Gossie by Olivier Dunrea.  Both of these books have a nice rhythm, great pictures, and sweet humor. We actually own them and several others by these authors - they are some of the most read books in our collection.  For nonfiction, 21st Century Junior Library has published several great farm-themed books.
