I am so ready to get back into a routine with the kids!
Most of you know of our ups and downs this summer, traveling to Chicago and Boston for Darrell's job interviews. Still no news, so I am assuming, for now, that we're staying. It's the only way for me to stay sane.
Last year, our schooling spread out around the house and we had some trouble focusing. This year, we have converted the back porch into a schoolroom, complete with shelves and our refurbished easel, rug and rocking chair.
We must have sorted a thousand crayons, pencils, pens and markers. Pencils were sharpened, crayons were whittled down to a usable pile, with extras going to the local shelter and broken ones peeled for an upcoming project. Pens and markers were tested. Dried out markers were dipped in water to reactivate them. It really works!
Daddy Darrell donated a pile of binders from his old classes. We recycled the notes inside of each binder and relabled them with our courses. More pics coming soon as our learning space takes shape!
Best wishes with whatever back-to-school or beginning of Fall projects you are starting!
