What a fun and busy summer we’ve had! We decided that our homeschooling adventure didn’t need to stop just because of the summer, so we’ve been doing structured reading and math a few days a week all summer, so as not to lose our edge. However, we’ve also been focusing on having fun! We’ve been swimming
Meanwhile, we’ve been taking good care of our plants all summer. I still don’t know if we’re actually going to produce anything edible (other than mint and basil) but we’ve sure had fun trying, and our plants are green and flowering.
It’s been an amazing summer, but we’re pretty worn out from all the activity. As everyone else is gearing up to go back to school, we’re getting ready to take a break. Chris and Angel have officially completed Kindergarten and 3rd grade, and we’re going to take two whole weeks completely off, just to relax. Then, we’re planning to kick off September with a 5-day virtual vacation to Ireland, courtesy of the awesome folks at the Little House Kindergarten site. We’ll be jumping full-swing back into our school schedule right after Labor Day!
