Since I didn't manage to come over to this blog for the entire school year, but I did manage to snap a picture or two with my phone, I thought I'd do a little catching up and post some photos from our 2012-2013 school year. Consider this our official homeschool photo-dump for the year. We'll try to do better next year.
We gathered our supplies....
And set out to tackle another year of homeschooling....
|Robert - 3rd grade|
|Andrew - 1st grade|
|Zoe - Tot School|
We had a sweet back to school gathering with friends in the fall...
Did some amazing, hands-on science experiments...
|observing the exoskeleton of a crayfish|
|bones found when we dissected an owl pellet|
|made rock candy when studying crystals in geology|
|Geology really does ROCK!|
|this was really amazing to watch grow over about a week|
|And it really made for a super-yummy science experiment!|
|We made homemade play-doh...|
|...and studied the layers of the Earth|
And went on some exciting field-trips...
|Sometimes Daddy got to tag along too!|
We celebrated Dr. Seuss Day...
And just had fun learning together!
Of course there are days that are hard, but looking back: I'm so very thankful that this is the life that I get to live. I am thankful for the freedom and the privilege to homeschool our children. I am so proud of how much these three kiddos have grown this year. I am proud that they are growing closer together and growing in grace for one another. They have developed a friendship with one another that we desired our children to have. I'm looking forward to many more school years with these kiddos!
