back to homeschool!

Our official yearly "Back to Homeschool" photo. Much more fun than standing at a bus stop with lunch boxes!

I know I have been just awful at blogging this summer, but that's all changing, so be sure to come back frequently and read all about what we're up to! This is the first year we're flying without a curriculum's assistance, and I'm really excited about the unit on Charles Darwin and Evolution (with a math focus on timelines) that I've pulled together for this fall. Best part is, the boys are really excited too, and we're off to a rip-roaring start! We're also working with Animal Studies during our Science Fridays co-op, have ramped-up our morning exercise routines to include some strength training as well as cardio/proprioceptive work, and will be focusing our evening attention on nutrition and cooking skills. Of course, there's also plenty of Dance for J, Karate for Zoo Boy (and me!), and plenty of growing up for not-so-little Rosebud.

On a side note, a very Happy Anniversary today to The Map Man -- 24 years baby, that's nothing to sneeze at! Love you!

I look forward to reading about your "flying without a curriculum's assistance" adventure. We'll be there in a year or so.
