Our First Entry

Today we are starting late. It is already 8:30 and all of us are still in our pj's. Our week has started out slow.

Yesterday we went to a Symphony 101 class to learn about the symphony Peter and the Wolf. If was very interesting and Sara Beth, who is only 4, loved the piece and enjoyed trying to identify the characters by the mucisal instruments. Ashley, who is 12, felt as if she already had learned all of this and was entertained anyway.

We went to the park for a picnic and then stopped at the homeschool store for a new science curriculm. I broke the old one. ...woops, might have been intentional. We decided on Apologia Biology. Although this is really an 8/9th grade science, Ashley feels she can do it and wants to so we will see how that goes!

After shopping we stopped home and we had to run out to one of our homeschooling groups activities. We received our new handbook and a t-shirt and returned home.

On the way back into our neighborhood, Sara Beth wanted to know why we lived in Rocky River Crossing and there was no river. So, after dinner the whole family took a long walk to the trail by the river to show Sara Beth there is a river! Unfortunately, we are going through a really bad drought so the streams and creeks were dried up and the river was really low. We had fun and learned how much water we really need to conserve.

Well, it is off to learning and starting our day!
