What do we do on a nice cold day?   We go for a hike, of course.  Our favorite thing to do.   It's 47* this afternoon.  

Then we go for one of these...

...oops, well I guess I was ready for a snack.   Hehe!  That's what was left of my coffee and cinnamon coffee muffin from My Favorite Muffin.   : )

Homeschool Spirit Day!!

Today was Comfy Cozy Day!  Of course, you know what that means.  Pajamas....for the boy anyway.   Nope the girl would not hear of it.   hehehe  Didn't surprise me.   That's what homeschool is all about.   Individuality, doing what works for you. 

So the boy decorated a megaphone then as you can see they schooled on my bed.  I remember when I was a kid, my mom's bed was where we wanted to be.   Even now, when we go visit, it's the place to go.   hehe

The girl was working on some math. 

Comfy on the bed, cozy as a family.  

Tomorrow is Crazy Sock Day!  Woo Hoo!   Go Homeschool!!

Happy Homeschooling!

Life of a Homeschooler

We began homeschooling a couple of weeks ago.   Still seems like we are just getting off the ground.   It's amazing all that goes on in a short time.   Our 1st week we had a Special Week of Activity at the Hall.   Of course, life is on hold during that time.   We concentrate on our ministry and hopefully some household chores.   We take care of a few school things as well.   This keeps us pretty busy. helps keep us on track too.   We have French, Photography, and Psychology thru them.   It's nice to have the children associate with other homeschool kids, even if it is online.  Our homeschool program changes all the time it seems. 

This week Currclick is the official host of International Homeschool Spirit Week.   Ds is pretty excited.   Today was Homeschool Away From Home Day.   We chose to do some schooling at Starbucks.  Then we went by the water to take some pictures for Photography Class. 

Tomorrow is Comfort Cozy Day sponsored by Apologia.  More pictures to come.   I love homeschooling!

Happy Homeschool!

A New School Year

We haven't officially started  yet, but we are preparing.  Should be starting next week.  We are actually getting excited.   There's a lot to do and not much time.   Then we are trying to salvage what's left of our time off.   We didn't really get much beach time.   We hope to include more trips this year.   Ds already has a long list of things to do.   Lol! 

By next week we should have a full schedule.  Hopefully I will find the time to post our new classes here.   Dd has already begun her elective.  Ds begins French next week.   They both will stay pretty busy for a while.  We look forward to the new year. 

Yesterday we took 1st day of school pictures.   They turned out really nice.  I might post those soon too. 

Well I think that's it for now.   Happy School Year!

Cloudy School Day

  Today has been cloudy most of the day.  Not cold, just really dark.  It seems that the weather is making everyone stir crazy.   There's a lot of noise and no focus.   Today we have had many breaks. 

   Grammar was  making up sentences and finding the subject and predicate. We also did some reading and geography.   I don't usually use the same books.   Depends on the mood.   Sometimes its just reading. Games are fun too.  We will do that later.  For now, we are going to ride our bikes before the rain comes.  Yay!
