The 2017-2018 School Year is well underway! We've been at it since early August, slowly adding a new subject each week until Labor Day when everything kicked into high gear. Allow me to introduce the four students I have the joy and honor of learning with...
Annalyse Joy... this missing-lots-of-teeth second grader thinks learning is fun, especially when it means being home where time is flexible, the demands are light, and her baby dolls can sit at the table with her while she works. She radiates happiness and is a strong leader when she's with five other second graders at co-op each week.
Micah David... this 100% athletic and 100% conniving and 100% ambitious fifth grader is on top of his study game when he can sit partly on the couch, partly on the coffee table, and partly on the floor while reading and writing. Never mind using his desk - that's so old school.
Initially we planned to join friends at the botanical gardens to observe the eclipse and to participate in some hands-on activities. But, after a 10-hour car ride home from New Jersey the day before, we opted to stay home and watch the eclipse via cereal boxes and aluminum foil. And guess what? It worked!
