Touching Base....

I have been so busy, that I barely have time to blog. We are progressing well. Over the years my homeschool style has changed and I am less focused on just completing lessons and have learned to just enjoy this season. the kids are enjoying State History this year as we are doing HUGE lapbooks using the sample from Knowledge Box Central. We are also learning to play the trumpet in music class using YouTube videos.

We've had some great road trips that have including driving to KY to visit my brother and look for property. We also went to a marathon that spanned the US and Canada. We had a chance to stay in the Renaissance Center in Detroit, MI and the kids loved the view from the high towers.

On the home front, we have been raking leaves... and raking leaves... and raking leaves! So far we have done over 50 bags. This is a 1st for us as we are usually in Nassau for the month of November and hire someone to do it for us. This year the kids and I did not travel and so we are enjoying the outdoors, kind of.

Finally, we are doing a read-aloud together called, Frindle, by Andrew Clements. It's pretty funny.

It's good to hear from you and I am glad you are savoring the season.

If I had known you were coming to KY, I would have invited you for a visit!

I wrote out a comment but I guess it didn't post.

Bahamas for a month would be amazing! Do you have ties there?

I never minded raking leaves growing up in northern IN, but I didn't like shoveling snow which is why I now live in the FL panhandle rather than near our families!

Ty is is KY near Mammoth Cave. I think it's getting cold there already.

PS my twins are both fourth grade but in different schools. One has state history and the other has whatever the common core is for 4th!
