Photo books...
My kids LOVE looking through them. They pick them up every.single.day. Seriously.
I started my subscription with chatbooks 5 years ago. Currently 6 months behind because I paused the automatic sync with my IG account. Totally regret that now πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

🌿 30 Days of Thanks 🌿
β€œI would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” G.K. Chesterton

I'm so excited to get into the giving spirit with 30 Days of Thanks! Plus I'm kind of a sucker for a 30-day challenge πŸ™ƒ Who wants to join me!?
A handwritten note is a small act of kindness that can go a long way - especially right now! This is also a wonderful practice to model for our kids as we encourage them to get into the habit of expressing their everyday gratitude as well!
If you want to grab this same box of cards I'm using, see comments for order form (only $30 for 30 gorgeous cards)!
Deadline is Friday morning at 9 am if you want to use these :)

Happy Mail!
I started using oils professionally in the massage/spa world nearly 2 decades ago. And we've used doTERRA products in our home for 8 years now!!
Troy and I decided it was finally time to share how and why we integrate oils into our daily life.
So tell me friends, do you incorporate oils into your natural wellness regime? If so, what do you love? What would you like to learn more about if you were to take a class or course (either in person or virtually)? I'd love to know!!

Homemade Pizza Nights!
Weekly pizza nights are one of the many inspirations I've adopted from my dear friend Skylar over the years.
I'm always learning from her because this family of 10 is a true TEAM! A gathering at their place is always filled with amazing food, conversation, and countless hours of fun for the kids (2.5 acres, animals, zip line, pool...you get the picture)!
Here's one of 15+ grilled pizzas her husband made the other night (and my personal favorite) - Thai pizza πŸ™Œ
Always inspired!
Do you have friends or a community that you can consistently grow and learn with!? If not, I HIGHLY suggest it becoming a priority ☺️

I listened to Tonya Dalton's book 'The Joy of Missing Out: Live More by Doing Less' a few months ago on Scribd - I resonated with the whole book! It helped me shape a personal and professional mission statement and start defining and refining my vision and core values. These ideas and topics aren't new to me, but this current life season certainly is!! Obsessed with her podcast too!

Husband home on the weekends and long hikes with mama friends (sans kids) has been a "benefit" of these covid months.
Got a little taste of fall up in the mountains today πŸ‚

A solo hour drive to sip my coffee and catch up on podcasts is basically perfection. Cool mountain morning air and chatting with @homeschoolgardens during the 7 mile loop hike was like icing on a pumpkin muffin πŸ˜‚πŸ™ƒ
What are your COVID silver linings??

The Social Dilemma
I've struggled with a deep love/hate relationship with social media for the last 10 years. No doubt it has the ability to connect us in amazing ways. But have you studied the negative impacts? Are you okay with the amount of time you spend on social media? Your tweens/teens?? Do your 10-14 year olds have phones? Do they spend hours outside and reading or are they on their phones? These questions just skim the surface.

Dive deeper into the current psychology, manipulation, and A.I. in this brand new documentary on Netflix called The Social Dilemma. The film features the exact engineers who created these platforms!!
The direct influence on our day to day lives is unprecedented. Never before have a handful of tech designers had such control over the way billions of us think, act, and live our lives. It's worth a watch!!! In fact, watch with your kids (my 10 and 12 year old already know why they won't have a phone anytime soon, but this helped)! Go watch and tell me what you think!

Kicking off our Virtual Art Camp using The Art Treasury book this month! Starting with Kandinsky 🎨
I'm hosting this low-key community in a facebook group for families and so far so good! Only 2 projects a month, but we'll work through the whole book together over the year! These projects explore various mediums and techniques, introduce art history, famous artists, and most importantly create more meaningful connection for families. Let me know if you want to join us!

Just mimicking the 4,000+ year old petroglyphs on an awesome hike today! Super concentrated section of images about 2 miles in from trailhead (but you first have to walk about 1 mile from street parking). What better way to celebrate a cooler day than a 6.5 mile date hike with Troy! πŸ₯°

Hi! I'm Ashlee, admitted book hoarder 😁
I LOVE books. Always have. But here's the problem...I never, ever purge. I just build more bookshelves or let them stack everywhere 🀣 In the past I've dreamed of hosting a quarterly book swap with local moms just to share reviews and help each other find a good match without having to buy individual copies of everything.

So give me a virtual high five today as I gather this stack to send to a friend! She recently dove into @sally.clarkson and her new book Awaking Wonder: Opening Your Child's Heart to the Beauty of Learning. Sally influenced my mothering and early homeschool years greatly! It feels so good to know someone else will enjoy these! And now I have room for the stack sitting on my nightstand πŸ˜…

Super happy Awaking Wonder is on Scribd too now (my favorite audiobook app)! Free 60-day trial link in comments! And only $9.99/mo for unlimited audiobooks after that!!! I love to listen to books while on a walk, in the van alone, washing dishes, or folding laundry ☺️

Chocolate and ballet...
This girl knows what she likes and I'm so blessed to help feed her passions (and reluctantly her sweet tooth too) πŸ˜‰πŸ™ƒ
But really, this is how homeschool begins!

Observation. Exposure. Interest. Support.
You just repeat this cycle a thousand times over!

I remember answering a million questions every day when my oldest son was this age. I started to realize that maybe public school wasn't going to be a good fit. He wanted to discuss topics in detail, move his body, and of course ask MORE questions. All.day.long.
I didn't want him to lose that spark. That joy for learning. He's always had a deep curiosity for nature, science, and history.
So everyday we would read a stack of books at his request (my husband still has all those favorite titles memorized!), and it has been so fun to pull them back into rotation and let Myles and Nelly experience our family 'classics' too.
That same child is almost a teenager now! He still reads all day and surpasses my knowledge in nearly every topic!

I don't even know where I'm going with this 🀣 I started this post just because we love this sweet book and I love her passion. But I guess that's all that really needs to be said: fill your life with good books and passion πŸ™Œ
If you're stuck or need ideas, I'd love to help! ❀️

My TOP TIP for homeschooling?
Get truly interested in what your kids are learning about...or what they are interested in...or what you want them to learn more about! Seriously!
We're studying Early American History together this fall. I bought a couple books I know Vaughn and I will LOVE to go along with all the picture books and shorter chapter books we have for the younger and middle kids. Our mama brains need fuel too! It makes everything feel more engaging and fun as we learn together and model life long learning.

A highlight in our homeschool has been our country study co-op. Every family chooses a different country and then presents highlights, history, culture, food, etc we found interesting/most relevant in an immersive hands-on way to the whole group! My kids have picked France, Japan, and Denmark respectively the last 3 years. I've learned SO much, and digging deep together as a family is what makes it work so well. This year we're still debating between Peru, Scotland, and Mexico...stay tuned πŸ˜‰
What do you look forward to most each school year?
