Style Summary

Today I'm headed out of town to attend a styling party my sister-in-law Heather is hosting at her local Francesca's Collections. She just started her business so it's exciting to see so many people already recognizing her amazing talent. My husband is encouraging me to go even though it means he'll be handling the kiddos all by himself - incredibly grateful for him. 

SUNDAY shirt & cardigan & bracelet: thrifted, skirt: hand-me-down, bag: fossil,
 earrings & boots: target 
WEDNESDAY earrings & cardigan: target, shirt #1: old navy (old), shirt #2 & jeans: gap,
shoes: gift
THURSDAY headscarf: thrift, shirt & pants: anthropologie, earrings & shoes: target
SATURDAY sweater: thrift, skirt: borrowed, necklace: gift, earrings & boots: target

I don't post a lot of pictures of my kids clothes but this week I couldn't resist sharing a couple. It's my humble opinion that they have some pretty great style, especially since over 90% (everything in the pictures below) of what they wear is a gift or thrifted. 

those patent black bootie kill me and don't even get
 my started on the pigtails. 

i always said my children wouldn't wear licensed
clothing, but these two make it work

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.
