Probably one of my favorite spots we have stayed has been on Lake Eufaula in Oklahoma. Our spot had a trail right down to the lake. It was beautiful! The kids had fun throwing rocks in the lake.

Today for science, we are starting off by watching 3 Brain Pop Jr. videos for my 1st grader: Fall, Seasons, and Trees. He will then re-read the books he read on Epic!, yesterday. As well as, have the opportunity to read any new books.
For my 4th grader, he will watch on Brain Pop: Seasons, Autumn Leaves, and Photosynthesis. He will also re-read books on Epic!, and have the opportunity to explore new books on Fall.
Brain pop and Brain Pop Jr, are monthly subscriptions or you can pay yearly. To see family and homeschool options go here. Otherwise, if you just google “Brain Pop”, you’ll see pricing for schools. I do not make a commission off of Brain Pop. However, I do want to share this valuable resource.
Go on a leaf hunt: we go on a daily walk. What I love about the location where we go on a walk, is that there are a variety of trees and plants.
Find a local location where you can really see leaves, trees, and plants changing. On your walk, identify different tree and plant types. If it’s doable, collect different types of leaves to bring back and identify. Use the non-fiction books that you are reading to classify the leaves. Sort leaves by color, shape, and size.
Hi! My name is Jessica, and I am Rooted Mama!!
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve noticed some new faces around here. . .so, I thought I’d introduce myself.
My family and I travel full-time. We homeschool while on the road, and we work remotely. And sometimes, we work camp!!
I started writing years ago, because I needed an outlet. Writing is therapeutic for me. I internalize my thoughts over and over again. Which, cranks up my anxiety.
SO, I started writing as a way to get those thoughts out of my head. To process. To verbalize all that internal thinking.
I’ve found that I love writing about a whole host of topics: anxiety/depression/mental health, marriage, parenting, education and homeschool, health and wellness, my walk with Jesus. . .and I LOVE sharing my passion of photography.
So, welcome AND thank you for following along this journey!! I’m humbled that you choose to take the time out of your day to read and join along!
Remember how I said that I needed this season of Thanksgiving, more than any other year?
A few days into transitional months are hard. That adjustment period.
This morning started off rough, with two kids throwing fits. . .right from the get go.
Thankfully, we were able to turn our day around by about 9 a.m. (for the most part)
Thinking over the day, though. . .
Today, I’m grateful for the small things. The mundane. The day in, day out stuff that happens, yes. . . Even on the road!
I’m thankful for morning cups of coffee while the kids play outside in the leaves. I’m thankful to have gotten another load of dishes washed. I’m thankful for play time at the playground, and daily walks to see the fountain show.
I still can’t get over the fact that 1. There are deer right in our space and 2. Where the incredible view, here!
Today, I am thankful for slow mornings. We still have to get 3 out of the 5 of us out of the house by 7 on week days, which is hard. But, we used to have to get out of the house by 6:30. The slower pace feels so much more peaceful!
I’m looking forward to slowing down, even more, come June!
Today, I’m thankful for tiny living. It’s something I’ve wanted for a long time, so I’m really enjoying this season.
Also- clean up is a whole new ball game! Takes a lot less time and energy! And y’all know I’m all about conserving my energy!
Last week, we had to make a run to Lufkin. We needed a place to stay, close by. So, naturally, I posted in an RV group…asking for places to stay close to or in the Lufkin area.
We ended up setting up at KOA Lufkin. (This is not an ad. I love to share places we stay and things we do).
I’m so glad we did. The location was perfect for what we needed. It was quiet and peaceful. The staff were polite and warming.
It’s definitely a place we will stay, again.
Head on over to the KOA Lufkin website to view their amenities:
Next time we go in, I’ll share places we like to visit while there!
