S’no Break for Us!

🙂 – That is the life of a homeschooler.

We got 14 inches of snow last week and schools have been out since last Thursday!

I did let the boys have Friday off, but we’ve been back to the books since Monday and I have to say that both kids have had a pretty good attitude about it!

Ryan and I have finally reached World War 1 in our history lessons.

THIS is why I make both boys continue to practice cursive!  I want them to be able to read the many amazing historical documents that are available.

These are our two current read a louds.  Sergeant York and the Great War is a true story about a hero from World War 1 named Alvin York.

Tales of Persia is a wonderful about missionary journeys in the early 20th century.  Both books have been excellent so far (My Father’s World always chooses the perfect literature)!

At least I managed to get one picture of Ryan at his desk before he tried to confiscate my camera 🙂 :

Brendan is doing great too and was lucky to have a few extra days to study for his Biology midterm.  He’s taking a networking class through Alpha Omega and says that he’s learned a lot.  Tomorrow is his 16th birthday (how can that even be possible???) so he gets the day off!

  1. I feel the same way about cursive. 🙂

  2. Glad the guys are OK with school work while all the rest are out because of the snow. That means they get out for the summer much earlier! Yay! Keep up the good work! Love y’all lots!
