First week of August!

We can not believe its already August! We've been moved for a little over a month now and settling in. August is a big month with activities starting (ballet and scouts) and field trips with our new homeschool group. We are getting settled into a schooling routine as well. Although we never stop learning we started carving some specific time out, dedicated time to pursuing interests, learning and growing and exploring around here this month.

First week...With our son we started reviewing math from last year, exploring world war 2, brushing up on spelling and writing and diving in to reading. We love the change we've seen in our son...staying up till 11pm because he can't put a book down. Yeah I'm not going to say no to that!

Our daughter has been continuing her GED prep program, studying the Japanese language/and writing as well as reading and working on her art/drawing.

It was also our 17th wedding anniversary and we celebrated with a family hiking day then a family meal out. The most beautiful day to be spent outdoors. A little sun, a little clouds, breeze and gorgeous.

We've had rain off and on...
 Explored more libraries...
For History we utilized Minecraft Education site for WW2 shelter activity here:
And also read about them here:

We also viewed several youtube videos and our beloved crash course guys for US History.
