Another school year.
"Prepare children for life.... and our life depends on the Lord. Academics are just a fraction of what we are teaching our children at home. Teaching them to seek the Lord above all is our main goal. Without him, the academics mean nothing..." Bible Based Homeschooling
We are back up and running on a full school schedule. This is our second week.
We school all over the house but for Math and English everyone sits at our formal dinning room table. (We rarely eat in this room!) So for our time here during the morning, I just put on a table pad protector to protect the wood and they just get into their favorite seat and work on their lessons.
We always have one of our three mascots join us.
Today, Bella is asking for attention.
All of them, have a bad habit of plopping themselves on the papers or demanding a kitty massage during this time. For some reason the cats think they can get away with jumping on the table during this time. They know better to do it any other time though!
We will do 9 weeks of school.
Then, we will have a week off.
Then, we will do a 2nd 9 weeks that will have us go up to Christmas.
This will cover the first half of the school year.
Not sure when we will have to pack the house up for our move.
We are still waiting on orders. But, we suspect that we will pack the house up around the end of October, maybe. So, we are hitting our living book list fairly hard this 9 weeks.
This way when we are in transition I can keep the home school books fairly simple while we are in the camper traveling to our next duty station.
