It's a scavenger hunt!

Preschool in this house has been.... not at all what I imagined. Both for the better and the worse. It takes a lot more work then I realized and I didn't really anticipate what life would be like trying to educate a 4 year old with a 1 year old poking her hands into everything. It's fun, and challenging, and looks different every single day.

Yesterday we tossed the workbooks and alphabet and headed outdoors for some nature discovery. Ava LOVES hands on learning and she really got into our back yard nature hunt.
With her list of things to find.

Little sister didn't quite get the concept of finding things and putting them in a bag, so she worked on entertaining the neighbor cat and balancing on whatever she could walk on.
 Finding lots of discoveries in our own back yard.
My one and only little tulip that has survived how FREEZING it's been here. 

Successful morning of preschool, and I think we all learned something!

The best thing about homechooling is the freedom to toss the workbooks aside! You're doing great!

It's wonderful being able to show the kids visually, what they are learning, something that they can't do in a normal school :)

I loved those early years of homeschool. We spent a lot of time with hands on and outside.
