I just wanted to jump on here for a moment to welcome all the new followers! Thank you so much! And give a little update with school.
I’ll be sure to check y’all out as well!
I don’t blog as often as I’d like to but when I do hopefully I don’t bore ya!
Update on school: going into my 5th week already come Monday and I feel I’ve learned quite a bit. Humanities II has been a real eye opener for me. So far we’ve covered Impressionist artists such as Claude Monet, Romanticism and Realism, and the different types of paiting. I think each is great but my favorite is Realism with a runner-up Impressionism. Romanticism is my least favorite because it’s of horror & terror and history. Example:The Death of Sardanapalus
There are a few that aren’t so horrific. But most are.
In my Creative Writing class we’ve covered tone & style, characters & plot, and setting. I feel I’ve learned more than expected in a little amount of time.
In my next term I’m adding a photography course to spruce up those skills!
Welp, that’s all folks!
Until next time…
My interpretation of this weeks SoCS:
This is my view right now. Sitting here outside with my boys plus one. My sons friend is over for the weekend. They like being outside of a morning when it’s not so hot. They hate that I have to spray mosquito repellent on them but I do it so they’re not complaining about being itchy later. The mosquitoes are bad. I love being outside during this timeas well. I wish everyday could be a perfect, slow breezy, just-the-right- temperature kind of day. It makes my heart and soul smile.
On the other hand I love rainy days as well. Grab a book or pen and paper, a cup of coffee and enjoy the sounds of the rain gently hitting the roof and windows.
This is my #SoCS
Here is the poem I submitted for my Creative Writing class. Please enjoy.
Jen from a mother of all trades gave me the opportunity to guest post. Check out her blog and other guest posts!

Thank you Jen!

So I started my classes Monday, the 22nd, and I had to write a poem or nonfiction for my creative writing class and write a reflection of my choice. I chose to write a poem. As soon as it is graded I’ll share it. I got positive feedback from classmates, just waiting on the professor. We studied about theme this week and this coming week we’ll be studying the setting. Crazy enough, this week we also talked about theme in art in my humanities ll class. We had to research different types of art such as Baroque. My favorite art is of water, landscapes and animals. We had to choose two pieces of art from any era and find a connecting theme and explain our choice. I will post those as soon as they are graded as well.
I know it is only a week but I am enjoying these 2 classes so far.
Meanwhile, in homeschool, my 8 yo has read an 18 chapter book in one day, my 4 yo has learned the letter A and my one year old has yet to understand he has 2 legs to walk on! He’ll be 2 in a couple of months. I think we had a really great week.
I hope y’all had a good week as well.
Until next time…
