We used the fire out of our Six Flags season passes, swam, climbed, dove, swang, road-tripped, flew, slept outside, canoed, rode horses, and generally squeezed every last drop of fun out of summer.
And now it's time to get back to business.
Back to school time is always a challenge for me. It's so hard to get back in the routine of bedtimes and schedules and printing copies and making it to homeschool co-op on time.
Plus, with one of my drivers gone to college, and my husband out of town for work much of the time, that leaves me to do most of the driving to and from soccer, volleyball, gymnastics, youth group activities, etc.
That mostly means Mama has very little time to compose blog posts. Or even compose her thoughts in a rational way, for that matter.
Which explains the sporadic post updates here.
But now we are back to a homeschooling schedule! Here is a roundup of how we are rolling these days.
We have a version of this master schedule for multiple homeschooled children posted, which helps us stay on track for our busy days.
We are all doing this wholesome talk Bible study together.
I'm using this homeschool transcript format to help my 17yo son complete his last year of high school.
He is also studying for several CLEP tests, which is how my daughter knocked out an entire semester of college for 1/20th the price. (Post coming soon.)
I am the president of our local homeschool group, and we are participating in that once weekly homeschool co-op for classes like science, music, and p.e.
I am also missing my college girl like crazy, but we are keeping daily contact. She may or may not have a crazy job for a famous person OF WHICH I CANNOT SPEAK, but makes for some interesting middle of the night text messages and phone calls!
