Our Journey Home

Our first homeschool field trip!

Over a year ago, we started to pray about kindergarten for Emma Grace. The Lord has guided our family and blessed us with the opportunity to homeschool! We started homeschool last month and we have been learning a lot! ( It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. I thought it would 'come easy' for me to homeschool Wubs since I have a degree in education and I have been a teacher in a public school. God certainly had a lesson to teach me about my pride! wink!)

We have been studying
the Bible, reading/phonics, math, handwriting, and science. We just finished our first little science unit about trees. Our dear friends, the Cottrells, own Carolina Mulch Express. Patrick and Shonna very graciously allowed us to visit their business and see how Mr. Patrick makes mulch from tree pulp and bark! It was LOTS of fun! Here are just a few pictures...

"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."- 1 Corinthians 10:31


  1. I can't believe she can already write like that! Somebody's been "homeschooling" long before kindergarten technically started!

  2. What a fun field trip!! Her writing looks great!

  3. I love the refrigerator bulletin board!! :) wink, wink... The tree poem is SO cute!! Wubs has a great teacher!! ...and yes, its true, "schooling" started a long time ago...!
