We've been getting back in the school groove for almost a month now, but as of this week we are officially in the groove. Co-op started, Community Bible Study Started, and a full slate of fall field trips are beginning.
I need to be better about saying no to some things. Earlier this week when I looked at September's calendar page, I realized that I had our family joining in on 8 field trips. This could be a problem. But it's just so hard to say no to fun things with friends, and exploring outside, and discovering new places...!
But at least he's cute.
We used a few weeks in August to slowly introduce subjects, rather than a deluge of all subjects at once on an official first day of school. For us it works well: a couple hours of focused learning in the morning, followed by several hours at the pool with friends in the afternoon. Simple.
