My plans for continuing our homeschool schedule throughout summer have been hijacked by my kids. Somehow they discovered the freedom and joy of summer days and will have nothing to do with math books. You know what? I'm OK with this new plan.
As I look out my window into my backyard, I can see them digging through the tall grass looking for frogs and salamanders. They love to create habitats for the creatures they find.
They are much more into making backyard discoveries than practicing their handwriting. They found this beauty the other day in our wetland (swamp).
They also like to measure the growth in the garden each day, and excitedly report to me what has gotten bigger overnight.
BIG changes are coming this fall to the Foley Homeschool Academy - a lot more structure, a lot more curriculum (gasp) One of the reasons I claim to homeschool is to extend my children's childhood. I can't think of a better way than to let them fully enjoy these summer days. Let the interest-led learning begin!
