This week I found myself sitting behind my closed bedroom door crying and gorging myself on giant handfuls of coffee nut M&M’s. Feelings of frustration and overwhelming thoughts had finally gotten the best of me. The constant sibling bickering, sickness, rain and endless questions compounded by the extra weight of trying to do All. The. […]

This week we decided to take the children hiking. We chose a new trail called Horse Creek that is part of the Cherokee National Forest. This was a beautiful hike full of fall colors and family. A perfect outing in the Tennessee mountains.
Welcome to another week in review here at Nourishing My Scholar. This is the Halloween edition so it’s loaded with the children in costumes! Fun right? Of course they don’t need a reason like Halloween to dress up. They don the costumes all year round! Throw in a bit of poetry and some great books and you’ve got our week!
Welcome to another Week in Review. This is where I catch you up on all the goings on here at Nourishing My Scholar. This week has felt a bit out of sorts actually, because our natural rhythm has been disrupted by dental visits for the children and a veterinarian visit for one of our fur babies. I must say that I find books like A Gracious Space, especially helpful in weeks like this when this homeschooling mamma needs a bit of extra encouragement. Which reminds me, we’ve read a load of books this week!
Welcome to another Week in Review! We’ve had a week full of Books, Hiking and Silly String! We also did impromptu story telling with our homeschool group and we made Apple Butter with our extended family.
Your brain is the most complex part of your body! It is the part of your body that tells you what’s going on around you. The brain even creates the thoughts and feelings that make up your personality! This is definitely a part of the body we need to know more about! The kids and I enjoyed some fun brain activities, this week, that included interesting brain facts, the different parts of the brain and its history.
Welcome to another “Week in Review” here at Nourishing My Scholar. We’ve had a bit of a challenging week here. Our three year old’s night terrors have been leaving us adults exhausted. Our son, too, has been overly excitable and out of sync. We’ve found that this happens more when our schedules change, but sometimes we can not pin point exactly why these types of weeks happen. So we are working at keeping the schedule that works best for both kids and getting plenty of read aloud and outdoor time.
Space is limited to say the least. So, how do we homeschool without a school room and in such close quarters?
We had a zoo day this week! We took the children to a local private zoo in Limestone, Tennessee called Brights Zoo. We have been to this zoo several times in years past and have always enjoyed it. You can read about our very first time going to Brights Zoo here. It was quite a memorable experience. This visit, too, was memorable because it was our daughters first experience at Brights Zoo.
