Halloween Costume Ideas

Pin it here.

 

With Halloween just around the corner I thought it would be fun to look back at all the Halloween costumes the kids have worn. So far, this year included, I have been able to convince them to dress as a “theme”. We’ve had lots of fun over the years thinking through and discussing the possibilities.

So, if you are looking for costume ideas for a sister and brother pair, I hope you find some inspiration. :)

Now I just had to figure out what to make with the pumpkin puree. While searching [...]

First Day of School

Well, today’s the day. Our first day back to school. I guess I should say our first day back to a full workload. One of the benefits of homeschooling is that you can gradually ease your way back into a full schedule. We started adding schoolwork to our morning routine about two weeks ago. So, today shouldn’t be a total shock to the system {for the kids [...]
