My husband had dug some butcher paper out of the trash at work and we've been using this huge roll for the past 4 or 5 years. I highly recommend it for art projects.
So here's my 8 year old and his amazing Fall pictures.
If you’ve posted any of your kids art work I’d love to see it. Just leave your link in the comments section.
Have a BLESSED day!

Where does the time go?
So the majority of this week will be used to do that. The other part will be to clean my house! OY! It's amazing how it builds up.
What kind of system do you use to plan your homeschooling?
Do you use teacher's manuals?
Look at lessons ahead of time?
Wing it day to day? LOL!
Have a marvelous day!

How do you plan your homeschool year?
I like to write down what I expect each child to learn for that year and then I gather all the needed materials for at least a month in advance and start planning each day.
One thing I've come to realize is that I don't like using a "calendar" to plan my week. Instead, I number my days in a blank grid. That way if something comes up on a certain day, it doesn't mess with the schedule. You know like if you had planned something specific on a Wednesday and all of sudden your child is sick and it doesn't get done then you have to remember to do Wednesday's work on Thursday or Friday and then everything gets thrown off. If you simply # each day then you just wait until you do that number until you move on.
Don't worry, when I get some of the planning done, I'll show you what I'm talking about.
What tricks and time savers do you do?

She offers her lessons for free on her blog but she also offers the whole thing in e-book format for you to download. It's completely up to you what you want to do.

My friend Sheri Graham has out done herself this year with her new Intentional Planner. I just received mine last week and I love it.
She thought of everything. And for those of us who homeschool year round, the calendar starts in July and goes through till the end of next year. YEAH!!
And it’s only $5.00.
And did I mention is customizable. Meaning you can type right into the planner and save it for later. I love that new feature.
Click on the picture if you want to check it out.
AND I had just set one up over at Homeschool Blogger but I'm finding that learning a whole new format is harder than I thought so I am switching to what I already know and that's blogger.
This is going to be strictly a homeschooling blog. I wanted to post about our homeschool happenings and maybe encourage and be encouraged by all you homeschoolers out there.
Feel free to stop by any time. I am gearing up for the new school year and I'm very excited about sharing it with you all.
