Halloween Memories Made and Cherished

As I mentioned in our other blog, we read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow every October. Last year, I found the Disney version of this great tale. Tonight we are going to watch it together again. James Martin is popping everyone some popcorn. Dad has on his fuzzy p.j.'s and I think we are just about ready for the "feature presentation."

Our Sweet Family

What a fine-looking trio of scholars. This was our first day of school back in August. Don't let the height fool you: our oldest is the sedate boy in green on the right. The boys are doing so well with their program this year. A Beka requires intensive Bible study and memorization; their years of Bible Drill have really come in handy in so many ways. History is their favorite subject, of course!

Ima Virginia is also in the A Beka program. She loves math and her math teacher, Mr. Howe. I'm thrilled that someone in this family likes math!

We are working on some notebooking projects as well. Virginia and I will be starting one in Colonial History; the boys and I will be working on a study of the "Seven Wonders of the World."

I hope to post soon on notebooking; I think that is one of the best educational tools out there!

Better close for now. Hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow and a wonderful Sunday.

Welcome to our little schoolhouse!

Hopefully, by early next week, I will have our new templates up and running. We are all very excited about starting this homeschooling blog. The best part about this blog is that the children will be posting some of their thoughts and experiences! Thanks so much for all of the interest and support you have already shown. Wishing you a wonderful fall weekend!

A New Blog

I am very excited about testing out this new blog site for our family. I will be adding a new template by Shabby Creations before too long.

God bless and keep each of you,
Janis & family
