A Day In The Life of a Homeschool

We are joining up with a blog hop called "Our Homeschool Day In Pictures". The girls were excited to participate and took many of the pictures themselves. Some of the pictures show off a typical day, and some are embellished a little bit, just for the sake of the blog post. I'll let you guess which ones are which!

At our house, you never really know what to expect on a day. Most days are pretty predictable, because our schoolwork plans are already laid out for us, thanks to A Beka. But there are always a few strange twists and turns that keep life interesting and exciting. I have come to appreciate boring days -  boring is good!!! (And we don't get many boring days around here!)

Come visit with us for a day!

Every day starts off with medicine time!

Starting the day off right - with the Word of God!
The endless search for wisdom.....and caffeine!

Breakfast made easy thanks to Freezer Cooking!

A little coffee and Julius Caesar!

Keeping the hands busy while reciting

Gotta get through that 12th grade literature!

English Literature test

WAY too much Shakespeare if you ask her!

A Loooong day in Algebra 2

Yep, trying the new hairstyle.

Lunch break - gluten-free/dairy-free quesadillas (aren't they just beautiful!!)

No homeschool day is complete without an errand with mom - to the post office!

Chores combine with education....home ec class anyone? Unloading the dishwasher.

Checking on flower seeds and giving them yet another drink of water!

Got dinner cooking.....YAY! That buys mom a little time in the afternoon.

Genuine, certified, never-before-seen-in-this-classroom, column addition!

A birds' eye view of 6th grade

Coloring sheets are awesome!

Time for Mom to get busy correcting! Finally!

It's history....no, it's art.....no, it's....a wall decoration!

Heather- "I feel like eating pizza"  Mom-"We don't have any pizza dough".
Heather - "I can fix that!"
