Homeschool update for November
Now less of a nutshell and more talky talk:
This is such an enjoyable experience for me. I love the routine we've all settled into. We start school between 8 and 9 am. We have a set weekly routine of what classes we do when and Belle picks the order most of the time.
The boys listen in on a lot of our classes and it is fun to see what they pick up on.
Something interesting I've noticed is that the kids spend more time reading books together and doing art projects or science projects instead of fighting and begging to watch tv. Don't get me wrong, it is still occurring, but not as much.
I know Belle misses the social part of school still. She is such a social butterfly and she always has a lot of friends. But I don't miss some of the things she picked up from kids at school. I also don't miss the illnesses from school or the school district calling me a bazillion times before 7am for a snow day. And I love that we can go do things during the day without rushing back to get her from school or rushing after school or anything. So nice.
Here is a fun pic of the kids doing a science computer game together. It was fun watching them talk about the questions and answering them.
