Dusting off the ole blog tonight with a zillion photos of Summer from Roger’s Park to Belfast and a few places in between. Summer 2017 you’ve been alright. We celebrated six years of marriage, flew to Ireland, spent time with family and friends, moved homes again and had some fun visitors along the way.

And yet as our warm Summer days are starting to turn into cooler Autumn ones, I’m looking forward to getting into a new rhythm and starting something new…

Miss Summer will be starting play school three mornings a week (next week!!) and I’ve been excitedly planning some preschool homeschooling for our girl who is so eager to learn all about life. With our classroom not only at our kitchen table but also at the park, the zoo, library, new nearby beaches, hopping around this colorful city and breathing in some fresh city air, we’re excited!

I’m in the process of collecting some new books and making a little corner just for our mini-lessons at home but am ready to dive in, pulling some ideas and inspiration from different sources. The Kindergarten toolkit, the Peaceful Preschool curriculum and Exploring Nature with Children to name a few. Hope to post a little here and there of how we get on and would LOVE to hear any good resources or ideas out there!

I know being able to stay at home and be with my girls is such a privilege and blessing and as the girls get older the responsibility to steward these blessings well feels that bit heavier. Ultimately we are praying that as we spend these early years together our girls will come to know and love their Creator, that as we explore and play and get our hands dirty together they will experience and respond to God’s creativity and artistry and power that can be seen all around.

So here goes! Week One. Letter A.
