Obviously, I have been a huge slacker. I hate it when people don’t update their blogs, and lo and behold, I have become one of them. If it’s any consolation, I write awesome entries in my head all the time while I brush my teeth. If only I would take the time to put my genius in “print”!!!!
I’m going to see what I can do to slowly get updated here. I’ll probably just pick up where we are now….it would be a log to fill you in completely on the last ten months in our household.
For homeschool this year, we have been studying animals using Winterpromise’s Animals and their Worlds, and having a good amount of fun with it. We studied the Savannah, the Rainforest (and we even made our own gum with chicle from the chicle tree), the desert, and are currently working on the woods. We are using Rightstart C for math for Mickade. Lillian is learning to read really well, and recently has begun to be able to read some Dr. Seuss books. 🙂 Lulu is just along for the ride. I’m hoping to make a trip to Busch Gardens soon to see all the animals from Africa. It will be really cool for the kids to see the animals they have studied in person.
We will be leaving Key West this summer for the Portsmouth, VA area, actually maybe sooner. We are kind of done with tiny Key West, as beautiful as it may be. We are ready for some more activity, and a lot more living space. 5 people, a dog, and a cat in 1050 sqft of living space is growing old. Really old. I will really miss having a dock out back though!!!
