Wow. My post titles are surely getting lame, aren't they?? Or, perhaps...more direct. In any case, I am sharing some of our little homeschool space here today. This is the view from my desk. It is beautiful and peaceful. And the perfect spot to wait for the leaves to change. Still waiting. Still.

Homeschooling And No Bake Granola Bars!
This is where Flynn and I spend our afternoons. This little space is in the open area on the second floor, so we have a cozy spot without much distraction in which to work. Flynn is in eighth grade, and honestly, I thought years ago that I loved the elementary years the best. I still hold a special place in my heart for those precious days of colors, numbers, shapes, and songs. Yet, I am finding the middle school years to be great in a different way. Flynn and I talk about things as we learn, and we both feel enlightened and excited when we explore something new. She enjoys World History a great deal, and I do as well. We are using a curriculum that takes an entirely chronological approach, and currently, we are studying the Mughal Empire in South Asia. She also really enjoys and excels in Geometry. Knowing my limits, I am using an excellent math program called Teaching Textbooks, now online, which allows her to bypass my areas of comfort involving math! Even as an eighth grader, she enjoys listening to some of our favorite Halloween books, the same ones I used to read to her as I sat in a rocking chair with her on my lap.
I'll leave you with a favorite snack idea that we all love. I thought I shared it before, so apologies if I have. I got this recipe from Peyton's husband's mom, who made a batch for us once. So easy! So good! Enjoy!
Click on the link for the original recipe. Clearly, we add some extra chocolate!
Well, I am off to start my day! I hope you have a cozy, lovely October day, my friends. Thank you for visiting!
