We are half way through another month! Where has the time gone? This month we are starting to plan our new school year. I am hoping to get a firm start next week (with breaks for vacations and such still). We are planning to start early this year because we will need a longer break in January when the new baby comes. That is a benefit to the homeschool way of life, we can start early and still finish on time while taking time off as wee need it. Are you starting school yet? Or have you been going all summer so far? Let me know!
We are blessed to have such a wonderful team of co-hosts sharing the Hearts for Home Blog Hop! Be sure to check out their blogs, you're sure to find inspiration and encouragement! Introducing the Hearts for Home Blog Hop Hosts!

A few of my favorites this week were:
Heck, I am planning the new school year so why not learn how to save money at the same time! I love the ideas listed and will be putting them to use (at least those I haven't used yet!)
I feel the need to go back and make sure to do this. I love the idea of evaluating the previous curriculum and making sure to get rid of the stuff we didn't like and keeping the stuff that worked good for us.
Sensory tables are taking on a whole new meaning for us! I loved when we went someplace else and did these things, but now that we aren't going other places like that I need to keep the kids touching and feeling these things. I love the idea of the sensory activities for learning and this post is full of fun ideas!
