Homeschoolin’ Time and Want Some Fall Weather!

P1060045
We are ready for some fall apple picking at Skytop in NC! This pic is a few years old. 🙂

I haven’t posted in a while…family from Ohio coming to visit and my son’s 13th birthday party. Seems like yesterday he was just a baby!!

When I went to school, we Always started that glorious day (I used to like school lol) the day after Labor Day.   Ah, school in the 70s! Anyway, it was good enough for me, so it’s good enough for Tali to start at that time as well.  However, I decided to start school today! Yeah! I have some awesome workbooks by Spectrum and a couple Lit books from used homeschool fair, so why not, I am too excited!

Taliesin, however, is not…lol.  To be expected, I guess.  I play some relaxing, but not sleepy music, and set a nice mood for learning. Maybe some Native flute, or Asian themed music. Such a nice way for continuing to bond with your child!

There is a lot of info. out there and the computer for reference is a homeschool mom’s (and dad’s) best friend.  Here are some links I hope you find helpful.  Cheers!

I am REALLY looking forward to fall. August in southern NC is buggy, humid, and hot. Fall is long and gorgeous!! Cool weather, beautiful trees…and learning with hot cocoa on the deck.
