It was a mandatory second cup of coffee day since a little 11 month old kept us up most of the night and then refused to nap today. ☕️😴

One of my absolute favorite things about homeschooling is being able to pick out books for the kids to read and for us to read together as a family. This year has been so fun to see Declan really grow in his reading skills and start to read some longer books. I love seeing his face light up as he reads, watch him laugh at the funny parts, and want to keep going to get to the best parts. . . . #raisingreaders #homeschool #homeschoollife #ranemschoolhouse #wildandfreechildren #declanjamesranem #declanandpuppy

When you’re five, you get mom all to yourself because the little siblings are sleeping and the big siblings are at co-op, and you get to lick all the chocolate coated things without sharing when mom makes brownies. Couldn’t get a whole lot better for this guy. πŸ˜„πŸ˜‹

I went to the kitchen to make lunch leaving Astrid and Fenton to play in the living room. Two minutes later I hear some giggling but mostly quiet, too quiet. So I went to check on him and the gate was somehow left open and he’s up at the top of the stairs, grinning and as proud of himself as a boy can be. 🀦🏻‍♀️ #nothingissafe #onthemove #11months #fentonleo

Today I’m thankful for the sunshine streaming through our windows even though it’s a frigid 20° outside. 🌞

Hot cocoa and a book about Leif Erikson after quiet time today. Not pictured is Fenton having his post-quiet timeπŸ₯›while I read (and continuously bat his hands away from the book). #homeschoollife #ranemschoolhouse

It’s that time of year. When I feel the need to declutter and go through all the drawers, cupboards, and closets and clear out the things we don’t need or use so there’s more breathing space around here. πŸ’« Does anyone else feel the urge to clean and purge with the beginning of a new year?
