Five Things for Friday: birthdays, new in the shop and loving everyone.
3) New in the Shop!
The “Don’t Forget to Pray” embroidery pattern is now available in my shop!
With a variety of stitches, this pattern is a really fun one to make. And it comes together fairly quickly (unlike the one I’m designing now. It’s taking for.ev.er. to make any progress. I had hoped to finish the stitching this week, but I’m only about halfway done.)
5) Homeschool clubs are where it’s at.
At the tippy top of our list of favorite things about homeschooling are the many opportunities for clubs and groups. We meet monthly with a variety of different groups. One of our favorites is Culture Club. Each month we get together with two of our favorite homeschool familes to share what we’ve been learning about various cultures. We’ve heard presentations including anything from US History/Hamilton lyrics to manners during the Middle Ages to how birthdays are celebrated around the world. And many, many fascinating things in between.
We also enjoy chess club, park group, interactive book clubs for both my big kids and a nature group. I highly encourage you to join at least one group like this if you are a homeschooling family. We are deeply inspired by interacting with other families who love learning together and who love sharing what they’ve read and learned together.
PS– the blog will be quiet for the next week or so as the kids and I are off on a little adventure. Happy Spring break!
