A Photo Update

It's been a couple weeks since I posted, I thought I would write an update on what's been keeping us busy!  Here are some of our latest projects:

 Butterfly painted a beautiful bird house in hopes that a mommy bird will nest inside.

 Butterfly also painted some Spring plaster magnets that are decorating our fridge!

 We've had some Spring forest trail walks with our homeschooling friends.


Butterfly and her friends love feeding the ducks and geese at the pond.

 Butterfly and one of her closest friends visited a farm together.

 The girls enjoyed feeding the animals and seeing the new baby animals.

 Our family's newest adventure is Juicing!  My friends and I have watched some pretty amazing documentaries on health and food, and we're now into juicing!  We pack our refrigerators full of fruits and vegetables of all kinds (left photo is Week One and right photo is our Week Two),  and we juice them!


 My family and I have a huge mug of juice in the morning and one at dinner time.  I prepare a bunch of fruits and vegetables,

 stick them in our new awesome juicer, in which Butterfly loves to watch!

 And then comes out amazing drinks packed full of nutrients.  Even Butterfly and is downing these beauties everyday with us.  I feel so satisfied knowing that we are putting so much goodness into our bodies everyday now!

More Spring news, our Spring flowers are coming up in our front garden!

 We've also been having super fun with our friends, including one of friend's houses that had a bouncy castle in her basement!!  It felt like a party for sure!

 Butterfly designed her own bag, with just markers and canvas material.  This tote bag now carries around her favourite small toys!

 One of the things in Butterfly's Easter basket were packages of brand new stickers.  So Butterfly made a forest scene on a file folder and added in her forest animals, bugs, butterflies, flowers and fairies to make a beautiful picture.

 We have been reading about Spring as our sling shelf is now packed with books on Spring, Weather changes, and Beatrix Potter stories.

 Butterfly visited the veterinarian office with her Daddy to bring our dog in for her annual check up.  Butterfly learnt a lot there, so when she came home she was excited to be a vet as well.  So we set up her own vet hospital!

 Including a bowl of bones to give to her animal patients and stickers of course to give one to each animal on their paw for being a good patient during their check up! :)

Here Butterfly is giving a puppy a bowl of water after having his needle.

 And this is Butterfly's waiting room.  All the animals are waiting their turn.  Cute how she gave all the animals a chair to sit on and the people owners, the dolls, a seat on the floor.  :)

 With school work to be done, I have pulled out folders of awesome worksheets I have been storing up from all the fabulous sites online that offer free printables.

 We have printables in the areas of Phonics, Shapes, Math, Book Studies, and some Writing Practice.

Along with our continuous fun in a Gymnastics class, Ballet class, Karate, Forest School, Yoga, Homeschooling groups, Library Storytimes, being with friends, and being outdoors, we are busy bees!  We've been exploring, learning lots, and having fun together!


  1. I can't wait to see what you do with all those worksheets! I very much enjoy your blog and look forward to in my reader.

  2. Ahhh, the waiting animals made me smile. My daughter loves to play dr with her animals too. For awhile, she said she wanted to be a zookeeper until she found out that they have to clean up animal poop. Now, she wants to be a vet for wild animals. ;)

  3. Looks like you have been busy having a lot of fun! Good reason to not be posting :)

  4. Looks like you have been very busy. What fun! Where do you get your free printables?

    1. There are many awesome sites out there. Look back in my blog for what you would like, in every post, my printable resources are linked up, just click on the link of what you want :)

    2. Sweet! Thanks!!!

  5. Your doing a great job! Your such a fun mum! I have just taken my daughter out of school and so homeschooling is very new for us (2 weeks in!). I love your ideas, many of which can be applied to older kids with a few variations. Your food presentation is amazing! Thanks. Tani
