Fall 2015

Summer was fun!

 Since we homeschool year round we don't have a tradition about "First Day of School" but in September when all of our yearly activities re-start we do get on a Homeschool Schedule. Each year is different but some parts of the day do remain the same. Here is the current schedule:

 Monday: Class work at home, chores and organizing for the week. Orpheus Academy of Music theory classes at 4:45-5:30pm. I can get to the library during this time or a quick grocery trip in. I would love to plan to sit and read for the 45min. but that just doesn't happen most Mondays.  Monday nights Nicholas has Boy Scout meetings. We love Troop 410 and Nicholas had a fantastic summer camp experience with them.

Tuesday: Looks like AAH Math Team/Club is taking up most of our day. Nicholas loved math club so much last year he wants to attend this year also. He is also attending Math Team Mathcounts I, and with the club adding in a younger group,Noah is also attend and having fun …

We Hike, We Learn, We Play,

Part of our homeschooling week includes (sometimes many) outdoor activities: Austin Nature Center science class, Austin Families in Nature, Co-op, camping, Boy/Cub scouts, bike riding, parks, music concerts, soccer practice, baseball practice and hiking a trail. We love to be outside! The weather is usually great here for all of these activities the entire year- yes its hot in August but that is perfect for swimming holes, beaches and the pools.  I enjoy taking the love of nature and the outdoors and including a lesson so we are constantly finding new items to bring home to our nature collection jars (on display in the living room).  Enjoy our outdoor/world learning pictures:  Best spot to eat lunch after that climb up!
