WOW - first ever post!!

The Summer has finally started!! 

97 degrees today!!!

So our new adventure into the world of Homeschooling begins!!!

Jam (DS 10), Boo (DS 8) are very excited and Little Jam (DS 2) is just glad that the big kids are finally home!!

I invite you all to tag along for our newest adventure!

Jam and Boo were so excited on Thursday when we had arrived home from our local library 'Summer Kick Off' event to find that Grandpa (visiting from England) had accepted the delivery of their new school books!!

Boo's first comment was ... 'Can I just do a little maths now Mom!"

This is what we have planned so far:

Jam (10) Saxon 6/5 Math, Apologia Science, Ancient History, Spanish, and Simply Grammar (with as many books as he can get his hands on to read).  He also has piano lessons and is very active in our community soccer program!

Boo (8) Saxon 3 (to her disgust - she scored 100% on the test and thought she should be able to skip a year) everything else will be the same as her DB. She loves competing with Jam - although they started piano at the same time Boo was two years younger - Did that slow her down!! no... she worked so hard to keep at the same level as Jam!!

Little Jam (2) as much trouble as he can get into!! We are starting slowly on the ABC's and phonics sounds - He has already mastered his colors!! I wish we could master toilet training as quick!!!

Other than this we want to slow down and enjoy the pool!

Although we have decided to school year round I think these first few weeks we will take it very slow!!

We have Nana and Grandpa visiting from England right now.  A week after they go back we have our 16 year old niece visiting from England - So excited-!!!
