    I am counting down to my last scribble by reflecting on how this 100 Day Project has changed my life. My children love collecting rocks.  They can spend hours admiring and inspecting rock after rock.  They would ask me to put them in my pockets and in my bag.  When we would get home, I would […]

      10 more days left of my 100 scribbles project. The last 100 days has been filled with SO MUCH that I can’t fit it all in one post and so for the next 10 days, I will highlight one thing about this whole experience that has changed my life. Today I want to talk about […]

    For the last four days, I have given an overall plan for our homeschooling year. (Visit here, here, here, and here.) Below, I break it down further with the resources I will use for each term. But at the end of it all, I want them to love the moment and to understand that all the […]

    One of the greatest aspects of homeschooling is the opportunity to spend a portion of our school year outside.  We can stay up late to star gaze or to celebrate a full moon. We can take multi-day field trips to see caves or 2-billion year old rock formations in our province.  We can study native plant […]

      For the last few days I have written about our plans for homeschool.  It is a very intentional rhythm for my year that closely coincides with my own personal rhythm and our family rhythm. From September to November, my children and I flow through our homeschooling plans seamlessly.  We always maintain a healthy daily and […]

      Yesterday I gave an overview of my plan for this homeschooling year. Today I am going to go a little deeper into why I have chosen to focus on world travel for the first third of our year. As a family (and as a couple), we have been fortunate enough to travel quite a […]

    I thought I would share some of what I am planning for our homeschooling year which will look very different from our other years. Today I will just give an overview of our year and then over the next few days, break down each segment a little further, ending with a post on what our new […]

    Today I am grateful. Actually every day I am grateful.  I can look back on moments of my life where I struggled to find one thing to be grateful for and now I struggle to find one thing I am not. But today I am especially grateful for my cousins and my parents who looked […]

    I did not plan on surfing in the Pacific Ocean on this trip.  Or ever really. I am afraid of the ocean.  My earliest memory of the ocean is my mom telling me about riptide and scaring the crap out of me.  I wasn’t the strongest swimmer so I have had a fear of swimming […]

    This morning I headed for the beach to do a morning meditation and my morning pages. (This time I brought a pen.) As I set up my good old mandala blanket, I looked at it from a few steps away. I thought about its repeating patterns.  Each individual motif connecting to the identical one beside it. […]
