Today was our last weekday of summer. We spent the last few days exploring forests, visiting turtles, climbing trees, sword fighting in the backyard, swimming, and reading…lots and lots of reading. It was a good, slow summer that is now meandering into the school year.
Monday is the first day of our 8th year homeschooling. While we don’t have definitive grade levels here, the kids are of age to be in 7th, 6th, 4th, 2nd, K, and the toddlers bringing in the caboose. The 7th and 6th grade boys are getting older and thus needing a bit more privacy.
So while I will keep blogging here for the few people that read, I think I’m going to switch to just a homeschool blog. I’ve been working on compiling all the things I’ve learned (and some that I should have learned) over the past almost decade of homeschooling. I hope I can help at least a few of you out there in the homeschool trenches! I’ll still be in the same places on social media since that’s where most of the great discussions happen. Here’s looking to lasts and firsts! Have a great school year!
