Crossing Fingers

Just a quick rundown since I haven’t been around in so long… we bought a house about 40 minutes outside of the city. Since moving here the kids and I have been pretty much housebound. A big part of that was because I was sick but it was also because there was nothing for us to do that was close by.

We knew of one homeschool association out here but it didn’t seem like the right fit for us right now. I figured that would be that and we would just have to figure out things for ourselves. Thankfully though the other day I came across another homeschool group out here that does sound like the right fit for us. They have children that are the same ages as all three of my kids and they do group field trips which would be nice for us.

“School wise” this coming week we’re going to try to get as much done as possible. Big B has been doing very well with the unschooling approach I took with him awhile back. He makes sure he does the things he needs in order to maybe get to start a dual program at the college this summer. Sis is still having trouble with Math so that will be our main focus again and Lil Man just likes doing tons of fun little worksheets, making crafts, and reading. So easy to please that one is. lol

I’m trying to get together a Unit Study on the Aztecs and Mayans that both the Middle Schooler and High Schooler can use. If they were a few years younger this would be easier but then it wouldn’t be MY life now would it? lol

Also there are some new “Homeschool” Pictures on our Flickr if you’d like to check them out.
