It’s a fields of daisies kind of day!
It’s a fields of daisies kind of day.

Years ago, when I first started homeschooling my 3 children, my sister-in-law and I coined this term to describe one of those magnificent, living, learning, loving kind of days spent with our kiddos.  You know the kind of day.  The trip to the beach to collect & classify seashells… the afternoon hike in the fall to collect leaves…everyone sprawled out under a big shady tree “doing school”… strolling through an art museum on a Monday morning while the rest of the world is back to the grind.
And then all of a sudden you look up and you are struck with what a great blessing  it is to be right where you are in that moment.

And the days fly by!
My oldest children have moved out on their own, and my youngest child will graduate next year is a freshman in college ! These kind of days have morphed into new kinds of happy, but I always want to remember the beauty and simplicity of the daisy days.
As I went through the stacks & stacks of curriculum and unit studies our family has collected, they brought back memories of so many great times spent together.  I couldn’t bear to toss them all out.
And so I thought I’d share them with you!

As a very, very newbie blogger, I am learning as I go.
I will be posting a series of American Girl unit studies first, then adding other themes & topics and some random thoughts as I go.  I hope you’ll come back often to see what’s new!

Have you had a fields of daisies moment lately?
I’d love to hear about it!

Wishing you a lovely day!
