The weather, it seems, is finally warming up. I think we’ve had five or six fake springs now. It’s been snowing a couple times a week for the past several weeks.
There was one day last week that the kids made a snowman in the morning and rode their bikes in jackets and sandals in the afternoon!
Now I’m not one you will ever catch complaining about the snow. I welcome snow any time it decides to fall. If I’m honest, I prefer the winter. I tolerate the three months of hot weather we get here in Montana (June through August), mostly because I love gardening and I like to swim in the river, and it has to be hot for the river to warm up enough to swim comfortably in.
As a side note, I think I have a mindset issue with the heat, because I’ve been telling myself for years that I love the cold and hate the heat. So I plan to work on my thought patterns this summer and see if the heat seems as stifling as it has before.
The weather right now is perfect. Nippy in the morning, and in the 50s-60s all day. Cold enough to open the window at night and get goosebumps, but warm enough to go outside without jackets during the day. I would be OK if it stayed like this all summer.
Now I LOVE watching “day-in-the-life” videos of other homeschooling moms. LOVE it. I put them on my computer to relax, or listen to while I do work around the house. I know it’s silly, but I feel like those other moms are keeping me company somehow, or supporting me, and definitely inspiring me!
So I thought it would be fun to do a day-in-the-life video to capture what a typical school-free day is like this time of year. This video was taken on a Saturday, while my husband was at work.
We are a homeschooling family of three, and although we don’t do formal school on the weekends, lots of education still happens throughout the day.
I invite you to come hang out with us on a Saturday, and join us as we do our morning routine, some birthday party food prep, play outside with the kids, and have a movie night!
Bonus: lots of footage of adorable babies making adorable faces at the camera 😉
