Gearing Up for Another Great Year!

This year we will have a 7th, 5th, and 3rd grader. I can't believe how quickly they are growing.

Since moving to a sweet country home 2 months ago, I absolutely see this homeschool year being a little different - in a wonderful way. We plan to work the land and eventually have livestock, too.  We have a fabulous ecosystem to explore here. There's two ponds, a creek, and lots of woods and fields, too. It's definitely a wonderful place to raise children to enjoy and appreciate nature.

We also look forward to traveling with my husband and visiting places we've never seen. For example, this fall we are going to Utah. We can't wait to explore the land and learn all about Utah. We hope to be true paleontologists while we are out there, too!

And!! Caraline has joined a local private school's competetive volleyball team for the coming season. She's beyond thrilled about this opportunity to be welcomed onto their team as a homeschooler. Plus!! Ryan will play his first season of tackle football in the fall, and Jonathan will continue playing NFL flag football with his teammates from last year.

We will be educating mostly classically with a lot of Charlotte Mason's philosophy thrown in as well. I do believe they complement each other beautifully.  There's so much more we are going to be getting into this year! I can't wait to share it all with you again!
