      No Comments on October 2008 Homeschool Adventures

October went by in an over-scheduled blur. In fact, it is now November, and I’m reflecting back on October, wondering where the time went. Academically, we’re pretty much on the same path as usual. Flo does lots of independent reading, and we also read together a lot. Flo is one of those people that likes to have three or four… Read more »
