A Rhythm to Our Days~
Our family does so much better when we stick to a routine.
You can even go as far as to say I am the schedule Queen.
But I can not let the schedule rule me,
so I have learned to be flexible.
After all, life happens.
So I list what is fairly predictable,
which helps me stay accountable for my time.
For all else, I use sticky notes for any weekly happenings that may be added.
An example: I don’t normally work 3 days a week, but for this month I am,
so I sticky-noted the hours for friendly reminders to the family.
New World Explorers- by Homeschool in the Woods.
It is a unit study which includes history, writing, cooking, crafts, experiments, etc…
The boys especially will enjoy the this topic;
pirates, ships, & navigation!
Treasure Island- as a family read aloud.
Seems fitting for our history topic at hand, eh?
The Magician’s Nephew
The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew.
The Big Blue Book of Beginners Book
*admittedly, these are all reads that we have begun in the past and simply did not ever get them completely read, so we begin again. *smile*
Antonio Vivaldi (yes again)- 4 seasons
Caspar David Friedrich
Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening~ Robert Frost (1923)
Winter~ trees, skies, weather
One element on the periodic table will be studied per week. I will share the specific details in our weekly wrap ups.

Katie: All about Division, & measurements. *we did not get this done last quarter, so here we go…again.
Andrew: Basic Roman Numerals, telling time to the quarter-hour, all about $.
Sign Language, Spanish, French~
focusing on the littles more with this,
so using the big kids to make it familiar in our surroundings.
Main lesson of the month; greetings, colors, numbers, food, & animals.
all about campfires.
We enjoyed our time off for the holidays, but we are ready to start living learning again…
