Could it be only last week that we attended the Not Back to School Picnic? A lot's gone on since then. We've attended our first home school swim and sports class, both kids have started soccer and we're getting into a groove with the homeschooling. J is really enjoying the Sonlight curriculum and they're both enjoying all the math games we've been playing. B hasn't really started using his Sonlight curriculum as right now I'm working with him mostly on phonics and handwriting. We've been using Phonics Pathways and Explode the Code. For handwriting he's using the Handwriting Without Tears program and I've seen a lot of improvement in his hand writing in just a week.
J is writing a cat story.
B decided to make a beaver.
This afternoon we met some friends for a late summer romp at the beach. We have been blessed with some really spectacular weather lately and it just wouldn't be right not to enjoy it to the fullest. The kids played in the water and collected clay and sea glass for hours. Everyone was perfectly content. It may be the last lake swim of the season but I think we're all ready for fall now.
