It's the second week of October and I'm not sure how that's even possible. I do however know that If I don't plan properly, my days seem to vanish, especially with trying to juggle as many things as I do in a day--homeschooling being one of them. 

I have been in the process of homeschooling Olivia and Greyson for a little over a month now. I must warn you, I don't know what I am doing. I do know that with my given situation, I can't afford to put Greyson into preschool, and Olivia's immune system can't handle the classroom just yet. Being so, I've decided to give homeschooling a whirl and learn as we go.

After doing some research and also keeping in mind that I am running a business that takes a lot of love and time, keeping it simple is best. I've decided to use a unit-based curriculum that coordinates with a monthly theme, and focuses on the areas I feel best suit them for their age. I've also quickly learned that their attention spans for a 2 and 4 year old, are not long. So again, simple is key when homeschooling your toddlers!

I'm actually pretty excited for these next couple of months just because h-e-l-l-o holidays! It definitely makes our curriculum a lot more fun and engaging with all the different festivities I can include. For the month of October, our theme will be all things Fall, Pumpkin, & Halloween. 

Here's our list of books that we love and will be reading this month. I will use these as inspiration for building a curriculum around that will teach them different areas of subject, and most importantly, learning through play with engaging activities.
