Homeschooling and Life: Feb. 3-16, 2014

We have had a pretty productive February. We have learned a lot in school, as well as having some fun and doing some learning outside of school. We have had a couple of ice (with a little snow) storms, which is very unusual for our neck of the woods. Here's a look at what we've been up to - so far - this month:

Baby Girl and I work on directions (in, out, over, under) with her basket.
