A Crisp Autumn Morning



So, today is one of those beautiful days that demands you get outside to enjoy the fresh air! I'm lucky, my kids don't need to much prodding...when I sat down to drink my morning coffee, I noticed two of them already outside playing basketball. After that, they moved to the back yard and started raking the mountain of leaves that is now covering our yard.

Technically, they should be doing their school work...but that is one of the perks of homeschooling...they can start their work after lunch feeling happy & invigorated and still finish their work for the day.

I have been working on their schedules...I am a bit late getting them done, but I was waiting on some new curriculum and I wanted to spend a lot of time on math and science to get them off to a strong start. Jack my youngest still moans and groans and will do anything to take a break or talk his way of out doing something! I scanned their schedules into the computer but I can't post them...hopefully I will figure out why and get them up.

Wednesday's are busy because Ella has dance lessons and pre-school which she loves! Everytime we head into the building she runs ahead of me...she is so eager to get inside. I love that she loves her new found independence!

You have done such a great job home-schooling your kids...they are ahead of their peers, and it's because of you! You are a role model for other home-schooling mums. Despite the huge time committment (and I'm meaning the number of years), you have never slacked off and let your own interests or pursuits get in the way of giving them a top-quality education! Your kids would be at the top of their classes if they went to public school. You should be proud...of not only them, but yourself!!

Have fun with that pile of leaves!!
Are you getting excited about your upcoming trip?? I wish I could go!!

Thanks Linda for the vote of confidence! Can't say I am anyone's role model...of that I am sure.

Yes, my kids are amazing...but no more amazing than anyone else's kids. I have been lucky because my kids have been sheltered from a lot of peer pressure and negative opinions on what they can and can not do in life...I am eternally grateful for that!

I do look forward to having more free time...I already have some ideas floating...no banging around in my head.
