Discovery Center Field Trip Day

We went on a Field Trip to the Discovery Center yesterday.   The kids had a fabulous time learning about animals, looking at fossils, playing with magnets and lots of other things.  

Wrapping Up Our School Year

We only have 2 weeks of school left! We are ready to be done.  It’s amazing how quickly Ethan can finish his school work when he doesn’t have homework to do for tutorial. He really only has Math and Language Arts to work on each day. He is behind a little. So, he needs to […]

Something Awesome

As we were getting ready to sign up Ethan for tutorial for next year, my friend, Katherine, encouraged me to sign up Audrey. I was hesitant because I was a little afraid of it being confusing or frustrating for her. Katherine assured me that she knew the kids in the class that Audrey would join […]

Enjoying The Pool While It’s Open

The outdoor pool will only be open for a little longer. Today we decided to take advantage of the hot day and spend the morning at the pool. It is a little crazy to me that the pools in the south don’t stay open for a longer season than they do in the north, but […]

Reading Update

Here’s a page from the story that Audrey read to me today:  I’m so proud of her! Do you know how amazing it feels when a child makes big strides with their reading? It’s awesome! Audrey and I both feel very accomplished 🙂

Keep Swimming. Keep Swimming.

He will have classes for most of the day and then assignments that he needs to do each week. He will have classes in history, science, art, keyboarding,  and PE. It is going […]

I Feel Like Blogging Twice Today

Life has been crazy and stressful. I feel like our hands are very full. Right now my mind is a bit distracted by listening to Ethan making super hero sound effects in his room, but I want to talk about homeschooling. Audrey learned about “silent e” today. A whole new world has been opened up […]
