I don’t think I’ve actually posted anything very concrete about what we do for homeschool. Probably the only time I did show something on the blog was when I shared a day in my life (2015 version). I’ll be updating my blog about our homeschool journey some time this month – keep a lookout for the post!
We started the year with two co-ops – one which we meet in the vicinity of our homes and another is our Mandarin co-op. For the past couple of months (we meet fortnightly now), we’ve embarked on a new theme – My Family. It was supposed to be a separate co-op from my Mandarin one but it turned out the same people expressed interest so we just took a break from our usual Mandarin co-op and focused on the moms’ interests instead, though it was wonderful going through old photos to show my almost four-year-old and chat about how much he has grown.
The scrapbooking co-op opened my eyes to the world of scrapbooking and definitely piqued my interest by several notches. It even made me sit down and finish up the mini travel album I started on a couple of years ago when I attended Scrappin’ Love’s workshop. Yes, you read right. I attended the workshop in 2013. 😀
So anyway, for our co-op, we spent a few sessions doing up an album to document our lil’ ones’ growth, there was a session on the family tree which I missed, and another session where we focused on doing up a photo frame with our family photo.
I really, really love the outcome and I must add that all these would not be possible without the generosity of my friend who extended her multifarious scrapbooking materials and her home to us for the co-op!
After several sessions, here’s the completed album!
Here’s sharing a few of my favourite pages!
I took this series of photos when I reviewed Ziaja’s bath products:
These are photo stickers printed from Canon Selphy CP910 (you can read my review).
This is one of my favourite photos from our Taiwan trip last December – which I erm, haven’t really sorted out the photos till now!
And here’s our family photo! I really, really love what I’ve put together here and it’s hanging on the wall now – you can see it the moment you enter the house!
I’m terribly inspired to scrap something now, but I can’t decided what, and erm, I actually don’t have many resources to do so, so I need to really work out something first before I invest in this hobby. I’ve always loved ogling at scrapbooking stuff – I just have this soft spot for pretty things, especially paper and paper flowers – but I’ve not really taken scrapbooking up as a hobby seriously because it’s not exactly a cheap hobby. If you know any good deals, please share with me, ok??
