I am a homeschool mom to 5. I love to go to events and on hikes and share them with others. I am not taking any photography clients at this time.
Re sharing part 2 of how Little Bit came into our lives. That was an emotional but beautiful day.
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com 7-8 months after I had last seen my littlest (I call her "little bit"), I got a call from my friend. Little bit needed a home and my friend could not take her. It is one of those heartbreaking decisions that come with fostercare. My husband and I were taking a break after 2 placements…
And of course, I have to share the first pics I took of Little Bit! Such an adorable baby!
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com I met my littlest in 2014 when she was around 3 months old. My friend was her foster mom and I asked if she wanted me to do baby pictures for her. Our hope was they would follow her so she would have them later. I have always wished I had done a photo session…
Re sharing this post from several years ago. Coming up on 5yrs since this firecracker came into our lives!
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com I took too many pictures in the last year to not share some! Little bit was 1yr old in these. So tiny! This was her first hike with us. She did okay but was still getting used to us so wanted to hold my hand the whole time. I spent a lot of time sitting…
I did a homeschool post! I really enjoy the history of the early church!
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com In the midst of the uncertainty it seems silly posting what the boys learned for Early Church History, especially since libraries are closed. But part of me still wants to hold on to any normal I have so here it is. After using a curriculum for the boys history, I needed a break from a…
How was your week? Did you just finish up 6 weeks of isolating also?
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com This has all just started to feel normal. Like our normal life has nowhere to go and no one to see. She loves to get her picture taken. Finding toads, frogs, and lizards is currently my twins favorite pastime. They have decided to build an arbor to grow grapes on. The girls helped me…
Easter and lots of bubbles!
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com Easter looked different this year ;) No one dressed up at our house so it was pretty laid back. We did an Easter egg hunt which I don't usually do but I thought it would help the kids with all the changes going on. I thought I made a mistake waiting until Sunday to do…
Check out what we did last week, here https://daniellehuddlestonphotography.com/week-4/
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com Some days it feels like nothing has changed for us and that world has not changed overnight. Then little things pop up, like neighbors talking to each other from their own driveways, and trying to make sure we stay on the other side of the road from them. People home during the day. Not being…

Nice weather has been helpful with kids cooped up this week. What are you doing? Is it nice yet where you live?
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com I took this last Friday but thought it was an appropriate way to start my week 2 of being house bound... Nick built me two raised beds in the last week! He also has been moving the shed across the yard all this week (whenever the rain lets him)! We enjoyed more Super Charged Science…
Okay friends, I thought I would share some resources that make my life easier and would hopefully do the same for you. This is such a time of grace. Kids are wonderful learners all on their own often ;) Sometimes they just need an extra push. I totally think doing nothing would be okay right now also but my kids would drive me crazy so if you need some structure without extra stress, here you go.
I hope you have been able to take a breath this week. Everything seems to have changed in the world in the last couple of weeks. Feeling blessed.
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com We are pretty socially isolated during the day normally but with everything going on it feels different. With the extra stress I am trying to give myself extra grace in schooling so that I have more to give my kids. I make sure we get our main subjects done every day but other than that…
[03/14/20] Worked on fixing glitches on my blog so if you want to see just curriculum posts or only Oklahoma posts you should be able to now. I use it to see what I have done in the past in our homeschool so I needed it back up for my personal use! Ha
I hope you have a day that makes you smile like a dog just licked you in the face ;)

Check out the Discovery Lab's new exhibit.
Finally got a video together of my kids favorite exhibit that the Discovery Lab has had. Hope they have it again!
My kids loved the Science of Circus exhibit at the Discovery Lab! So fun!
Happy with all of our beautiful snow!!!! It is snowing again now and we are going to head out for round two!
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com Trying to find all the gear almost derailed us but we found it. I try to keep my expectations low when they forecast snow for us but this time they were right! And it is beautiful!Living her best life... Group pics are always interesting. Milo loves snow. Do you love snow?
We went to the circus ;)
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com We had not been to the Discovery Lab in a while and were surprised to catch this fun exhibit right before it ended! It was all about the science behind the circus and was a huge hit with my kids! So much so that we ended up going 4 or 5 times in the week…
Blaming my need for wide open spaces on Laura Frantz and her beautifully written books.
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com Reading frontier fiction always leaves me craving wide open spaces... Anyone else get like that? Reading about a place always makes me want to see it. Well, unless it is a crowded city ;) I might be in Oklahoma but part of me feels stuck in the mountains of Kentucky and Virginia. I am hoping…
A bit of a bumpy start but ended up being a great trip. Do you camp during the holidays?
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com We stayed at the Seminole Campground in Sequoyah State Park from the weekend before Christmas until Christmas Eve. I tried to make the camper a bit more festive. We were for in for a bit of surprise when we got there. We were told that all trails were closed for the weekend for an open…

Do your kids like messy projects also? What is their favorite?
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com To begin our second week of winter/Christmas activities we read about why snow is white from my boys science book and did this melting snowman experiment. This ended up taking two days since their snowmen needed to freeze after they made them. This is another project my boys wanted to do. Only two o...
[12/16/19] Well I made it 10 days ;) Ha. Decided to sleep in and not trudge out this morning for a pic.
Day 10 slept in today after a late night. Then I found this perfect Christmas backdrop and made my oldest pose for me ;)
Day 9 pretty sure he learned this "is she done yet" look from my kids...
Day 8 this morning was a struggle. I slept in so I had very little time to take this before kids got up and I looked outside at another cloudy winter morning and was like ugh, Oklahoma is not helping me this morning. Ha. Does not help that our dog is trashing our yard. Ha
I made it to the day 7 mark. I looked out this morning dreading trying to find beauty in the Oklahoma winter landscape but find it I did and it was actually too abundant ;)
Day 6 when you wake up to another cloudy morning and a bit wild hair...seems like a good morning for a self portrait.
Changing things up for December! This is our first week of projects.
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com I decided to set aside the girls science curriculum this month and see what I could come up with that had to do with Christmas and winter. Here is our first week. First up I read a little excerpt from the boys science book on weather. I liked these books because they are written to…
Day 5 it is hard to find beauty in my mostly dead or dormant yard, especially when their is no sunrise but when I look hard I still see it.
Day 4 these vines are so pretty. They are all over one side of our yard. Not sure what they are.
Day 3 Frost is sometimes as close to snow as I can get...
Day 2 of finding beauty in the winter landscape. I got to see a sunrise this morning :)
My littlest kept saying "don't break your bones and don't die" to the boys on one of our hikes 😂 I agree girl. Watch to see some beautiful spots in Arkansas.
