June 2007 Homeschool Adventures

      No Comments on June 2007 Homeschool Adventures

Despite the fact that, as homeschoolers, we don't rigidly follow any schedule with regards to the academic year, June still tends to mark the beginning of "summer vacation." Flo's little neighbor friends, who attend public school, are now around a lot more. The weather has become hot and often humid. Also, this year, I'm eight months pregnant, so the kids… Read more »

April 2007 Homeschool Review

      No Comments on April 2007 Homeschool Review

April started off on the 1st with Darren's 37th birthday. It was a Sunday, and we went to church, where they were coincidentally celebrating their 50th anniversary as a congregation. So, lots to celebrate starting off the month. Easter was the next week, and along with that theme, a mom from our homeschool group hosted an egg hunt playgroup. The… Read more »

February is Finished

Maybe because this month is a couple days shorter, it just seems to have blown by. We finally had a couple snow storms, which kept us home for a few days, which was actually nice.

We kept his… Read more »

But, of course, as soon as they were gone, we were back to the craziness of our life. Flo is plugging along with her… Read more »

October has been another busy month, with lots of fun activities and learning opportunities. I still struggle to balance our schedule with enough time at home, so as I don't feel too frazzled with running around. But, I think things are leveling out. Of course, the biggest challenge I face right now is the possibility of a relocation in the… Read more »

September Summed Up

      No Comments on September Summed Up

The kids are doing great. We've cut out TV almost all together for the past few weeks and have noticed a major improvement in attitude and behavior. We didn't throw out TV out or anything, we just positioned it in an awkward location of the family room, where nobody really wants to sit. We also just consciously don't turn on… Read more »
