2 weeks complete

Well, we have made it through our first two weeks of learning at home. It has been really great! We have learned SO much (yes, even me). It is amazing how much can be fit into so little time. The BEST part of the whole thing is the fact that we don't have our entire evenings taken up by homework. Now that we have found ourselves with extra time in the evening we have started playing more games and watching more movies together as a family. It has been so much fun...and relaxing.

Our main topic in "History" that we are studying is the Hoover Dam. It is very interesting! The boys are excited about studying it because we are planning a trip soon to go see it. (How's that for a cool field trip?)

I am so glad it's going well!! Yes, you are going to learn a lot!! As they say the best way to learn is to teach! So when's the field trip? How fun!!

Very cool. I think that would be the best part of homeschooling -- the outside time you would get to spend learning.

I do that a lot with the girls -- not with any formal curriculum or anything -- but I take them to a lot of places, and we research before we go in anticipation. It's fun to foster a love of learning OUTSIDE the four walls of school.

Good luck, Ames. I know you are doing well!

Good job! We have been home educating for ten years and it's so rewarding, even on the really hard days when you want to throw in the towel!!
