Everyone is gearing up for summer break where the days are long and hot, kids are running a mock and mommy’s and daddy’s get a little twitchy. But for us, not much of our day to day changes. Its kind of the joy of homeschooling. My kids still play for hours outside, coming back sweaty and smelly, but we also wrangle up a lighter school schedule allowing tons of room for bike rides with friends and water fights.
Here are some of our families must have for the summer!
Ya’ll I’ll admit it. I am AWFUL at getting books back to the library. Like, had to negotiate and triple digit book fine. Yup. Triple. Nope. None of the books where lost, they just took a hot minute to get back. So we buy a lot of books. I actually really love having books ready for the kids to grab and dive into. Some of our favorites are Usborne Books. I love that my kids can flip through pages to learn more about sharks or get lost in amazing illustrations of the Big Book of General Knowledge then turn around and learn survival tips from Bear Grylls. With my adventurous boys and glittery daughter there is something for everyone.
Find everything from puzzles and story books, to math and science!
Speaking of getting outdoors we don’t go anywhere without out our Terrashield spray. Bugs and pest LOVE my kids. So we never leave the house with out our bug spray. I love that it protects them from bites with out covering them in harmful ingredients. I never thought I would be able to stick to my guns with having safe ingredients in a bug spray, but Im so thankful that I now can!

Sometimes you just cant have outdoor fun. Instead of letting them get sucked into hours of tv or ipad time we love Adapted Minds. This online program is so fun for kids in first grade or higher. My son loves the math with all its games! I love the video explainations on the problems he gets stuck on! Plus for ya’ll in public school the levels are linked with your states curriculum and standards.
It’s amazing what I am getting to add on to my day to day as my kids are getting bigger! One of my favorite “new” get to’s is reading! When my kiddos where in diapers I longed for the day to be able to curl up in a comfortable spot and dive into a book. It’s one of the things I look forward to the most on our upcoming parents only vacation! One of my favorite reads over the past year the book I Heart Mom. Not only are there amazing stories about motherhood but I actually had the privilege of having one of my own stories included!
