Happy Homeschooling

We are almost at the end of our homeschool year! 

All curriculum we used this year has worked out wonderfully. We did add All About Spelling two weeks ago and everyone loves it! The kids hurry through copywork to be the first finished to start spelling. It is fun and works well for both kids. The review at Satori Smiles ( was a wonderful help in making the decision to go with this product. 

I have updated the side bar with the curriculum for next year and will post more in depth about how we accomplish things here. 

This year I have been busy with our homeschool group. We started a Lego Club, Homeschool Scouts, and a Nature Club. All of that will be ending at the end of May and will start again in September. PE also ends at the end of May and we will be moving to our summer park home for weekly meetups. 

We are actually going to take some time off for the summer this year. We usually homeschool year-round, but this year we will take a whole month off. We will be going up to Show Low for Memorial weekend and then off to PKU Camp the first week of June. 

I am so proud of my children. They have done amazingly well with their lessons and have grown so much as human beings. 

Happy Homeschooling!
