The Teachers


Big sister Abigail

Abigail is busy with work and college, but still finds time to drop in and help out. She helps out with field trips, music and art lessons.

Mom and Dad

homeschool teachers

I’m the planner for our homeschool, as well as being responsible for most of the lessons. My favorite things to teach with the kids are literature and reading, along with science.

Brett pitches in when he can, picking up science and music history, as well as some geography. (The kids learned so much during World Cup!) He has a much more laid back approach than I do, which is so helpful when I’m having trouble.

Let’s hear from you! I’d love to know how many students you have this year, what ages and stages you’re managing, and more.

My friends over at the iHomeschool Network are introducing their students today. Go over and take a look!

Not Back to School Hop


  1. I am particularly partial to the littlest student, but only because he smells so good. You are teaching an awful lot of weaponry this year!!

      His daddy remarked on how much he’d grown over the weekend! Must have been all of the lovin’ y’all put on him!

      Sigh. Weapons. It’s like we’re the Kennedy Militia. 🙂

  2. Dianna — seeing these photos and now having the experience of spending time with you — makes everything all come together. You have gorgeous children! I will read with interest about the Latin School. Hugs to you!

    • Dianna Kennedy says

      Aww! We had SUCH a good time this weekend.

      Thank you so much for your kind comments!

      We’re off to an Open House later this week, and I’ll be ramping up the back to school prep today.

  3. Beautiful family! Love that they’re wanting BB gun and cross bow lessons. My husband and son would love to add that to our year as well!

      They’re all boys, all the time. If you follow me on Facebook, you would have seen me lamenting the broken window as a result of a Nerf Sword mishap.

      Never a dull moment here.


  4. I just found your blog this weekend. It is great to see how others spend their homeschool days. Thank you for sharing.

    PS: Love the weaponry; sounds just like my boys.

      Thanks for coming by, Melissa! I’ll be sharing more about how we order our days later this week. I appreciate you stopping in!
