Our fall will be busy, busy, busy.  There are four field trips with history, on site photo shoots with studio photography, retreats with youth group, and thankfully there is also time to relax.  We are out of the house 3 of the 5 week days and Grace will be busy on Saturdays also (her choice).  The days we are not at outside classes or coop, we will sleep in and work at the library.  I hope that I have balanced their needs and met some of their wants. I hope that they are happy with the social opportunities coop provides and that Lilah meets wonderful friends at youth group.  I hope that I can maintain the energy needed to keep up with two teens.

I always, always loved reading about everyone's plan for the semester or year and what curriculum and outside classes they were taking. I also always enjoyed writing that post. You guys are going to be busy but it looks like a great mix and variety with lots of things to sink your teeth into and get creative with! I can't wait to see how your year progresses!! Here is to a great year!

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
