6 Months!!!!!!

2 Oct

We are celebrating 6 wonderful months of homeschooling!

This was our very first day
we painted, mostly because I didn’t know what else to do.

This was our very first project –
Dinosaurs
we learned all about the Mesozoic Era,
fossils, extinction and the age of the Earth.

We learned about continents and oceans,
and know all the countries of our continent.

We did SO much writing –
creative writing, summaries, poems…
we learned about the parts of speech,
did lots of spelling lists and worked on composition.

We did loads of math and science,
and felt a strong attraction to these subjects.

We did our second big project on
The Solar System
Tomorrow is the gran debut of The Pluto Monologues!

We did ballet once a week with a friend.

Dance, circus, arts&crafts and music
every Tuesday and Friday at our
Art Center

We started our most recent project on
Greek Mythology

We had kittens!
Played soccer with the cat?

We built a new bedroom
bringing an end to 8 years of co-sleeping
(mama’s still having difficulties with this one)

Took our first big family trip

Survived another hurricane season
in the tropics

Welcomed our river back,
built dams

and had lots of picnics

I still managed to put on a few performances
and get some creative outlet

DH and I celebrated our 7yr anniversary

Bought a new mac with this silly photo program

started this blog, met lots of awesome people in the hs communities,
and finally figured out what “dh”, “dd”, “ds”, etc. mean after
months of guessing because I was too shy
to ask on the forums.

We love homeschooling!
