What We've Been Up To:
The Girl turned 14!!!
The Boy is enjoying the Big History Project. This will take us through the next year as well, since I'm adding in science, and it took us a while to get off the ground with it.
I've decided to apply for a Roots & Shoots mini-grant to help The Girl and I with our front-yard-turned-wildlife-habitat project.
The weather has finally gotten much nicer, so The Boy will be returning to his truck project.
Again, since the rains have (mostly) stopped, we can get a veggie garden going! I decided we would start relatively small this year, and add to it regularly, rather than overwhelming ourselves with another giant project at the moment.
Homeschooling on the whole is good these days! Math is going well for both, we're working on writing projects, we're reading The Golden Compass, and we discuss a lot of politics/political science.
We've also been enjoying sunny park days with friends; the kids go roller skating every week; they also visit a local teen club twice a week (most weeks) for arts, crafts, and more; and The Boy is loving his figure drawing class!
So instead of rambling on and on, here are some pictures from recent days, in no particular order...
|The Girl got clay for her birthday, and is making mini sculptures|
|The cat loves his boy|
|Minecraft flower mini-sculpture by The Girl|
|Drawing from The Boy's art class|
|The view from an uphill walk I try to do at least twice a week|
|I love seeing hot air balloons when I drive my husband to work in the morning|
|Another drawing from The Boy's art class|
|I always see such pretty flowers when I'm out walking!|
Have a great weekend and week! I'll try to check back in more regularly!
