Life Stuff

We are actually finished with our normal school work for the year. Of course with me being on the Review Crew this year we will continue reviewing products throughout the summer. That is mostly what we are working on at this time. 

My parents received some pretty devastating news a couple of weeks ago so I have had lots of meetings to attend with them and visits over at their house deciding a plan of action. 

We volunteered at the state homeschool convention this past weekend and that took up two full days of our time. 

I meet with my co-director yesterday to plan out all the classes for our cooperative in the fall. Very excited for what we are offering with also being aware of how time consuming it will be. I believe this go around Grace will not take any other outside classes except the cooperative. Although she is interested in a fun debate class that will be offered. 

Review we are working on

Making Math Meaningful
Moving Beyond the Page
Teaching the Classics
Let's Make a Webpage
See the Light

It would be hard to pick a favorite product this week. All Grace sees is summer and not wanting to continue any school work. She is still in love with Spanish For You, we will continue it over the summer 2-3 days a week to keep her fresh until the fall. 

Tomorrow is the big arts festival. Wish us luck and obviously I will do a post about our experience in the next couple of days.

We are linking up with Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers and Homeschool Review.

I just checked out Spanish 4 You--very interesting. We would like our girls to learn Spanish but they are not crazy about Rosetta Stone.

I hope things work out with your parents.
