No School like Homeschool

It’s been a while since I posted about anything having to do with our little homeschool adventure… maybe because everyday, all the time, is what we consider school time. We don’t limit our learning to certain times during the day and so all the activities seem to blend in with our day to day life. But here are some things that stick out in my mind when I talk to other’s about what the girls are doing.

Tallest Book in the Library

We decided to try doing some of the library adventures that I posted last week. This is the tallest book in the library, about Abraham Lincoln, which led to discussion about how we as humans evolve and most people back then were smaller than today’s population. We found many interesting books that were pretty big, mostly maps and natural history books!

first library card

Look who got her first library card! Miss Amelia was super excited about having her very own library card to load up with books.

science timeGabby got this really cool science kit called Disgusting Science from her Aunt Hana. Basically it is gross bacteria, snot, mold, farts… everything that she loves, lol.

We are in the midst of the first activity that involves growing bacteria that we have in our noses, mouth, armpits, and between sweaty toes… ick!

I showed Gabby photos of real bacteria that cause illness like pneumonia and fever, she was fascinated.

dance classAnd then of course we have the weekly dance classes.

Amelia is loving dance, which I knew she would. She talks about her teacher non stop and is getting very excited about recital talk. =)

Next month all three girls start swimming lessons and we are talking about starting music lessons next school year for Gabby.

Everyone though has really been waiting for our co-op to start again… we have been on break for the last two months. Our friends are very missed!

So that’s what we have been up to, along with random nature hikes, physics lessons via Ski-Ball, and weekly zoo trips.

If you homeschool what is your day like?
