I love the bond that these two have formed since we started school this year. They are so goofy together and Oscar can make Astrid laugh like none other, but then they share sweet moments like this (even for just a few minutes) and I melt. πŸ’œ

A gorgeous blanket of snow covering everything outside so quickly you wouldn't even know how behind we are in winterizing the yard. Pots still full of dead flowers, toys still out, outdoor furniture and umbrella still set up... 😬 Anyone else as behind as us?

Somehow even with a crazy morning and breakfast we managed to get done with school early. It took us less than 2 hours to do math, science, history, world studies, Spanish, language, handwriting, phonics, spelling, and read a fairytale. So I'm rewarding them with an episode of the new Magic School Bus. Also, I get to read another chapter of my book before lunch prep, so yay! πŸ™Œ

Astrid and I went to visit auntie Grace this morning while the big kids were at co-op. Such a beautiful place to explore.

When you have the option to sit anywhere in the house you want to do your schoolwork and this is where you choose. πŸ€”πŸ˜† . . . #kidsarefunny #lookscomfy #homeschool #ranemschoolhouse

I love these quiet moments of reading aloud before bed. πŸ“šAlso, Oscar is obviously very interested in his belly button. πŸ˜‚

The squirrels haven't gotten to the pumpkins yet. Crossing my fingers that they will last through the month without getting eaten like they were last year. 🀞🏻

They seemed to think that the construction workers were much more interesting than our Spanish lesson and art study today. 🀷🏻‍♀️ #butitsactuallyquietinhereforthreewholeseconds #finewithme #pluslookhowcutetheyare

One of my favorite things is switching over the books and decor for the season, and fall is especially wonderful. πŸ‚πŸπŸƒ #read #autumnreading

I think the 90+ degree weather and living right next to a pool for the past week and a half has turned my kids into major water babies. πŸ’¦πŸŒŠ

Arms full of tattoos and hands full of butter. Learning about the ocean and the animals that live in the coldest climates by doing some experimenting today. #ranemschoolhouse

Imma just sit here and enjoy this clean area and moment of quiet with my cold chai for a few minutes before starting lunch. We finished school early and I'm keeping the kids contained to the porch (dubbed "sector 4" for today) with an entire cardboard box from the bunk bed that we put together last night. They are tearing it into 7,000 pieces, going through rolls of tape, markers, and creating some pretty interesting stuff with it that I'll probably have to secretly throw in the garbage while they're sleeping in a couple weeks. . . . #momentofpeace #illtakeit #letthembelittle #oldhouses

Just a boy helping his mom make 8,000 popsicles. I think he may be in it for the free samples, but hey, I'll take the help! πŸ“πŸŒπŸ #frozipforthewin
