Beginning of Homeschool Year: 2012-2013

Thanks to another homeschool mom, I've introduced a "Treat-a-Week- Plan :)

A snapshot of our daily read-aloud time

We have really enjoyed our first two weeks. So far it is working out beautifully to separate the children in all subject areas. There is less bickering and interruption, and it is so peaceful. While *I* have to do some extra planning, I still find that it is worth it. Doodles and I have had great, in-depth conversations as part of Sonlight Core F, while Bug and I have also had some deep spiritual discussions as part of what we're studying in Further Up and Further In. Baby Girl is making some progress, too, as we work with her a few minutes at a time daily. I look forward to the weeks and months to come!
