Time Does Fly

WoW! I forgot I even had this blog. We were really busy trying to get everything done in one day! It is over a year later and we are still homeschooling. Maybe a little more relaxed. Ashley is in 9th grade now and is doing well. She doesn't always get started early and sometimes doesn't finish till the evening, but she is busy doing other things during the day. She takes care of dogs for a neighbor and is saving hard for her own laptop. This year she is study American History and Lit, Algebra, Marine Biology, Latin roots for Science, Vocabulary, Grammar, Spanish 1 and bible. We haven't found a homeschool group that fits our needs this year, but I will be working harder to find one next month.

Sara Beth is doing 1st grade this year. She loved to read and do math. Sometimes on the weekend she wakes up and wants to know what schoolwork she has today. She can read just about anything. She is still doing Sing, spell, read write and loves it! Saxon for math, apologia for Astronomy, although we are taking science really slow! Ancient history is going slow as well.

March 2 we are heading to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown for homeschool days. Ashley is studying this time period and Sara Beth will be learning same basic American History in Feb. We are looking forward to a great week there!
