Last month we had an art display at our local library. We being the group of women, and their kids, who belong to a small homeschooling art class. Last month was the paintings display and all 18 pictures/paintings adorned the walls and were admired by many. One painting was even bought by the head librarian there (an amazing rose painting by one of the mothers).
This month is the cabinet display with things like sculptures and handmade toys. Unfortunately there wasn’t as much in this one which resulted in the kids and I doing a clay sculpture weekend a few days before it was put into the library and the borrowing of some of the kids toys which I had previously made them (and were still in good/clean condition).
School starts tomorrow. I am so not ready for it!
I won't be starting Erin until the middle of the year as that is when I think she will be ready for it. In the meantime I will do the alphabet, writing her name and a few other basic things in order to get ready, plus she can get ready for the junior homeschooling convention also, which is in April (I think)
I do not think Miranda will have any trouble with getting back into school but Jade might. We have been getting her to read over the holidays just to boost her along but she isn't too interested in the harder stuff yet. Hopefully things will change this year and she will, at least, get up early enough that she doesn't start schooling late in the morning!
