Last night the girls and I sat outside beneath the night sky hoping to see Perseids shooting stars. We didn't have much luck. At one point I saw one flicker and then another. I became so excited until I realized it was simply fireflies! The girls got a good chuckle over that...
The girls are doing excellent in their studies. I love the way their faces light up when they catch on to something new that we are studying. What was difficult for them last year, is easier now.
I am waiting for several books for Kendall to come in, but his learning is more along the lines of his interests and more hands-on: Natural disasters, chemistry, Asian culture/history/martial arts, practical skills, cooking/baking, writing, and cosmetology (and yes, he is totally straight!:).
There are so many connections being made each day that it is hard to keep track of it all, but the learning continues even after the morning book work is done.
Once book work is done they have the rest of the day to pursue their interests, play, explore, spend time outdoors in nature, play games, dolls, help me with baking, and more. Nothing beats homeschooling!
