WELCOME!

Welcome! I am using this blog to share our family's homeschooling thoughts and experiences.

THIS SCHOOL YEAR (2016-2017): We will be using a variety of different curriculum this year, with Notgrass' Uncle Sam and You as our main History, Bible and Literature focus. Our oldest, EL, is in 12th grade this year, but has special learning needs due to autism. JJ is our youngest, an active boy with Tourette Syndrome. He is in the 8th grade.

Please feel free to follow along....

Apple Orchard, Letter Writing, and Other Projects

Here are a few things we did this week:
 
We took a field trip to an apple orchard
with our homeschool group

Made Parmesan Tilapia
(This is quick and easy. See recipe below.)

Math on the new hardwood floor

Puppet practice
The kids are planning on performing a couple of songs at our church on Sunday night.

Letter Writing
The kids are learning how write letters - not e-mail, but actual written letters. This will help them with writing practice, spelling, sentence structure, communication with others, etc. We plan on practicing our letter writing through-out the school year so, if you are a family member or friend, you might be getting a letter in the mail at some point. Please write back if you get a chance. I know the kids would love to get some mail and read a response to the letters they write to you.
