Around the House – Â My Dad came over this week to make a few small additions to our school room, I will share more on that later. Â We did clear out a bunch of things from the house and garage to donate to a garage sale the Knights of Columbus were having at our parish. Â Otherwise, just the basics of housekeeping are getting covered. Â We have been busy enjoying summer!
In the Kitchen – I hate to say it but, I really haven’t kept up with any kind of meal plan this summer, except that Bob has been grilling out on Saturday nights and we have pizza on Sunday. Â Other than that we seem to be flying by the seat of our pants. Â For a few weeks in the summer it will be okay, we will get back to our regularly scheduled meals in September.
Education – We started back to school on Monday. Â So far we have gotten in two full days and I am happy with both our schedule and our curriculum choices. Â We will have a short week this week and next, it has been nice to ease into things.

Paths of Exploration – Â We kicked off our new school year with a field trip to see The Nina & Pinta. Â Our first unit is on Christopher Columbus. Â So far we are all really happy with this curriculum choice, in fact I over heard Jacob say “I love school”. Â Coming from him, our hard to please boy, that’s a pretty big statement! Â I think we are going to enjoy keeping the notebooks and seeing the progress the kids make over the year.
