First month of official home!

Just so much has been going on here! I'll try and narrow it down.

We have begun our school year (officially). It is just so much fun and I cannot believe how fast my little guy learns! We will be doing a biology unit where he will dissect: long bone, knuckle, brain, lung, kidney, eyeball and a heart. We are doing environmental science with TONS of projects! Learning about the solar well as spelling, math and literature. We're reading "Call of the Wild" right now. Honestly, we have so much fun every day!!!!

Also, we just got back from my hometown where I got to celebrate my 20th High School reunion. I am so lucky to have such great friends from high school. I was lucky then, I am lucky to have kept those friends, and lucky again to have reconnected with MORE! Such a great weekend!

Football season has started here, too. Back to practicing every day! The kiddo and I both love it. We each get to be with our friends again! ha!

Just absolutely a fun month this month...traveling a bit (2 road trips), seeing family (my 90+ year old grandfather) and homeschooling. OH...we also got to go see "A Midsummer Night's Dream" which was a great and fun night for us, too!

That's about it...just enjoying each day so far and REALLY GLAD that school has begun!!!!

Alright...To describe the photos: We drove through the caprock in west Texas and climbed the cliffs. One photo is looking down as we climbed up...and the last is the rainbow that showed up as we were coming back into the part of Texas we live in NOW!!! It was gorgeous...See why I love my life so much!!?

Ok atleast there are a few parts of Texas that are beautiful, because it certainly isn't the area that I live in! LOL! What a great picture!

Happy homeschooling. I haven't taken the plunge, but I really want to.
