Homeschool Happenings

This afternoon we went to visit friends. They homeschool too. The kids had fun playing while my friend and I talked homeschooling. We seemed to stay on the topic of science. She is using Bob Jones this fall and I think I am going to wing it with my Dinah Zike Big Book of Science book as well and books and movies from the library. We are both enjoying lapbooking with the kids so I think that will be a given. :o)

When we got home I asked Caleb what he would like to study in science this year. So far, he has said Volcanoes and Kingdoms (plant, animal, fungi...,etc). I'm thinking that will be fun.

I've set up another blog to keep track of our homeschool happenings. Right now it is still a work in progress so I have the privacy settings on. I am trying to think of a way to highlight subjects and skills. Possibly highlight the subjects with color and bold italics for the skills. Good thing I will have the summer to figure it out. lol ;o)

I'm winging it with science too -- I'm not going with a textbook, we'll be using the library and a few reference books.

Hello Lisa! HOw are you? I hope that you are doing well and that school is going wonderful for you! Have you started another blog for your homeschooling? I was considering doing that as well in January, I am still unsure right now though...guess we will see if I can start to keep up with the blog I currently have before messing with another, lol :o) Life has been busy but it sure is good to take a break this evening to stop in and say hi!

Have a great week!

Many blessings,
mona
