Laden with Guilt

Hello? hello? HELLO?

Ahem. It's me. You know, the one who was supposed to be blogging about homeschooling & its many adventures. Turns out...I stink at keeping up with a blog now that we're homeschooling.

Why am I posting right now? A friend told me she started a blog today. Which made me feel guilty for ignoring mine. So here I am!

So many changes in our homeschool since I last posted. I now have a 7th grader, 3rd grader & a Kindergartner. The two oldest tried public school again for about six weeks. Hated it. They're now back at home.

Our curriculum has changed. And changed. And changed. And will probably change next week too.

I recently discovered a weekly assignment lesson plan that is working slicker than snot. I write out the lessons a week at a time. Yep. That's it. Sounds simple huh? Can't believe it took me 3 years to come up with it. Smart gal.

Anywho - here are a few pics to update you on what goes on in our house.

Campbell used this broken wooden monkey hand in place of her own for days. DAYS. She seemed to be raising her hand A LOT in class. I'm sure just to use the hand.

Cyra's been enjoying her time on the stage in several productions. Aristocats, 2 old time melodramas, The Sound of Music & MidSummer Night's Dream.
Kenady is teaching us all about the parts of a butterfly. She takes learning very seriously as you can see.
