A single photo capturing a moment from the week.
A moment simple, yet special, something I want to remember in years to come of what our everyday life was like.
Inspired by SouleMama.
This was our last week of school for the year. What a learning year- an explosion of reading, picking up and mastering new and old math skills, and a few projects along the way. We were all very ready for the end of the year, but really, we will still be doing things throughout the summer. We will have math every week and most definitely reading of a few books. Henry has plans for a black bear project. He knows exactly what he wants to do, we just need to set aside the time to do it.
I am in works for planning for next year. It is exciting and overwhelming at the same time. It will be so different having two official schoolers. Although Bennett did do a lot more “school” work then Henry ever did at his age, we will be working further towards kindergarten. I am so impressed with what Bennett has taken too- math being a favorite, phonics not so much (very similar to Henry). It is so enjoyable to be able to learn and observe how my children learn. I am able to adjust their learning to their needs and likes. It makes learning more fun and it is easier for them to pick up new skills. I can’t really successfully put into words how I feel about educating my children, but it could come down to this- joy, exhaustion and honor. What a joy to do this, it is the hardest thing I have ever tackled and it is an honor to be able to get to do this. It may be against the grain, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.
