it's getting to be that time again...


With the Fall gym schedule starting next Monday it is time to return to thoughts of school. 

We had no intentions of taking the whole summer off but with workouts taking 5 hours of prime daylight, balancing work for me, & tons of summer family fun there never seemed to be any time for school. Ah-well, that is the beauty of a home school life! 


This week a box addressed to Boo waiting on the front porch announced the return of school. It was loaded with books, craft supplies, and other school goodies we needed for the fun things I have planned for us. 


If I have learned anything home schooling for the past 5 yrs it is not to plan too far ahead. When the weather changes so does school. So keeping that in mind I have planned a 4-6 wk school plan with a flexible schedule.
