What's Happening Here...

     Can you believe it is February already?  The days are going by so quickly.  We are about two-thirds through our school year and we have been busy little beavers.  I just wanted to share a few things we have been doing since coming back from our Christmas break.  

     Mid January, we started our unit study of Ancient Greece.  The kids have been loving every moment of this study.  I can't wait to share my review with you in a week or so.  If your kids love projects, crafts, and learning adventures, this study is for you.

     Joshua finished up his science curriculum right before we took our Christmas break, so we had to come up with a new science curriculum for him.  We decided on using the Earth Science program from SchoolhouseTeachers.com.   He is enjoying the class. It is an online class, but we have worksheets and quizzes to print out for him to do.  He is thriving and through 4 sections already. 

     Hope loves doing unit studies for her Science curriculum.  Right before Christmas we finished up her study of jungle animals, so we were able to start a study of ocean life when we returned from break.  We use many different resources while doing these unit studies.  Her favorite books are from Usborne.  They are full of so much information.  We also use our Kid Answers sections from our Answers in Genesis magazines that fit the study.  They give us wonderful information from a Biblical perspective.  

     Ryan started a few online classes after our break as well.  Our SchoolhouseTeachers.com membership has been a blessing in so many ways.  He is taking a speech class and geography class on this site and is obtaining knowledge that will help him as he finishes up his education here at home.  I honestly can't believe this young man will be graduating next year. He doesn't like to get his picture taken a lot, so I will share the pics I can get of him. 😉 He is a great big brother and our comic relief when we need a good laugh. 

     Hope and I have both been working on our Bible journals.  We have loved studying God's Word and being creative with our journal pages. Our art skills are improving each day.  It's also a fun activity to do together.  We have plenty of time to talk, giggle and enjoy each other's company.  

    So far this year, we have been very productive and we are learning many new things.  I can't wait to see what we take on next. 

    I hope you enjoyed a look into our Daley homeschool life.  😊
