Moments to Remember

Moments to remember

Moments to Remember was developed as a simple way to look back on our week as homeschoolers and find photos that encompass the memories we want to remember. 
The week may have been tough, there may have been more bumps than smiles, but in the end these are the moments that keep us going, the ones we need to remember.

I totally did not plan to have this many moments, but when I went through my photos from this past week, these all stood out to me.  

All 3 kids gathered around Krash while he was excelling in math while playing an advanced game for his age on First in Math.  This is also special because Pac is the one who has inspired him with this program {Pac uses it for his school}.  He has taught Krash many of the more complicated games and helped him figure out which ones he can handle.
Part of the reason my boys stand out to me is because these moments are NOT the norm.  Sure, they adore each other but they also drive each other and ME nuts.  These photos show me that it isn’t nearly as bad as I tend to think it is. 

Pac has taken on my love of technology and is currently learning to make PowerPoint shows {similar to the ones I create for the Members Only section}.  He made a word family show for Krash and here he was showing it to him. 

Spontaneously looking through the World Vision Gift Catalog together one morning…

Glancing over and seeing my guys working together at a table.  Sure, they may have been arguing or their notebooks touching each other, BUT when the photo stops the action all I notice is the fact that my Kindergartener and 4th grader are working together.  For that I am thankful.

Honestly it was a bit of a crazy week and I found myself just longing for the holiday weekend to be here.  I was not the best mom or teacher but we still managed to have moments like these.  Having the kids home IS worth it and I am thankful.

Link up your moments to remember post below, be sure to provide a link back and be sure to use a permalink to link up your exact moments to remember blog post {not your blog home page}. Your post can be as simple as one photo, or as detailed as tons of photos and tons of words!  This linky is for homeschoolers, or families who are keeping their kiddos at home during the early years {we consider you homeschoolers too}.

When adding your link, just put your blog name for the title and choose an image from your post for the thumbnail.

Next week, link up with Homeschool Creations!

~edited to add…I am sorry I guess the concept of this linky is a bit confusing, it is specifically for a Moments to Remember post-not a craft, or a weekly round up.  It is a place to choose 1 or a few photos of your children that show the heart and reason behind why you homeschool and the memories from the week that you want to remember. Model your post after the post above or Jolanthe’s first post here and you’ll get the idea!  If you haven’t written a specific Moments to Remember post-please do not link up.  Thank you and sorry again for the confusion about what types of posts to link up.
