We are in our 3rd week of school and things are finally starting to feel like we are in a groove. YeaHa! For some reason it has been hard to settle into a routine. So with that, it seems like we are already behind becasue a lot of our time has been spent on redoing and undoing, specially with our new science book this year. Having the boys getting used to the "higher level of learning" books (ie Jr high and not elementary) has been really difficult. It is taking more time then I had expected but it is coming along.
Other then the massive science book, our other books of undertaking for the year are: Math, Latin, Grammar/Composition, spelling/vocab and Bible. We are still working towards finishing our American history book from last year. That is the only book that we did not finish. With moving, and everything else, during the summer, I decided that it was not worth it to make the boys work through the summer and finish it.
In addition to the academics, both boys are involved with music and sports. Tyler is taking concert band at the local school right by our house and both boys are playing soccer. Tyler plays in the rec program and Kyle is still playing competitively on a travel team. Kyle stays very busy with his soccer as he is on the field at least 4 out of all 7 days during the week. I would say that is quite a bit being that he is only 10yrs old. He loves it though.
It should be a fun year. I will do my best to keep posting updates here.
