I’m sorry…. It looks like you will be getting weekly updates on homeschooling. These may not be the most interesting/exciting of posts, but this is a big part of our life right now. I’ll try to post MOST of the time when in a good mood and when things are going smoothly…I want to be genuine about our experiences, but nobody likes to read complaints all the time. I will be honest, however, to say that about once a day I have a *usually* brief conversation about having a positive attitude/”doing everything without complaining or arguing” (cue Mom singing a song from my youth)/not everything will be easy at homeschool/it’s important to do hard things. MOST of the time, though, we have wonderful days and feel like we were created for this! Super cool.
<– reading books while we wait for the library to open. We got to the library every other week or so. <– playing our Memory Master game, which is very similar to Parcheesi, but we need to answer a CC question in order to move to a new space.
<– skyping with Aunt Lauren and Ivan! We also skipped with Uncle Jason recently, but I guess I didn’t take a picture. Grandpa and Grandma also get regular calls since they are often home at lunchtime like us.
<– if Micah is home with us while we are doing school work, he likes to spend time “reading” <– sometimes we do homeschool work while I make dinner. Most days we finish everything by 1, but some days are crazy… <– E loves to play “Guess Who?” with our Presidents placemats. It’s hard to come up with questions to ask…”is your guy smiling??”
E and I made home-made bookmarks this week. We’re so crafty, huh? Found this idea in a “fall crafts” book from the library. E and I both made one. And Micah is working on his today.
Here are some pictures from our days at Classical Conversations and a video of his presentation:
