Homeschool Planning and Knitting

Joining in this Wednesday with Ginny of Small Things.  My time has been spent planning and reading through each of the children's homeschool planning for this year.  I have a planner for each child.

I have finished knitting up another bonnet, small more little gnomes, and continue to work on my shawl.

Looking forward to checking out what others are knitting and reading.

Warm wishes,


  1. Lovely color for your shawl. :)

  2. Good luck with all of your school planning!

  3. I am doing the same right now. It's pretty time consuming, I find, to plan out an entire school term for each time beforehand--but it allows the actual school time to run so much more smoothly and effortlessly. When I first started homeschooling I tried to just go with the flow, and that approach definitely didn't work for me. I was confused and stressed out all the time! Organization is a good thing. :)

  4. Tonya,
    Busy planning our homeschool too:-) I have a few OM books if you would like them. They are older and used, but I have the syllabuses for K and 4. A friend gave them to me, but I never ended up using them so if you want them send me an email:-)I also have Melisa from A Little Flower Garden's third grade guide--I have tried to sell it on ebay numerous times, but no bites so if you'd like you can have that too. It is brand new:-)

  5. You are keeping so busy..and with a new baby coming soon..make time for some rest:)

    I love the colors of your shawl....

  6. I'd love to see the bonnet...sounds lovely! I looked into Oak Meadow when we homeschooled a couple of years ago. It looked like a lot of fun!

  7. i love your play areas - we were just working on ours, you've inspred me to make a dress up area! we have done plant + alum dyeing all week, mostly cotton strips for quilted pillows but a few playsilks too (love beebalm + sumac). wishing you a restful and wonderful time before baby.

  8. Wow! Can't believe all you do! Have a great start to your homeschooling year!

  9. Tonya have you been using Oak Meadow right along? We go back and forth about trying it. We would just do the two kids at the same grade level (probably 6). I would love to know what you think of the curriculum.

  10. I hope someday to be in a position where I might homeschool my children. What a blessing it must be for both mother and child! :)
