Can I just say that I cannot believe it is November already! What on earth happened to fall? We were pretty busy at the end of summer...two trips to Georgia and a camping trip (just mama's and kids). Now we are well into our school year and things couldn't be busier, but it is a good busy. This year, Blake is doing third grade work and Jacob is doing first grade (we follow Waldorf pedagogy which doesn't begin academics until first grade/6.5-7 years of age). In some ways, things have been going as expected (Blake still is reluctant to do any written work) and in other ways, it has been unexpected (Jacob LOVES doing school work). It has been challenging to say the least to fit in enough time for everyone while also tending to a toddler who loves to climb on the school table and steal/eat our crayons. But things are getting better and we have developed a wonderful groove. I hope to post some pictures of their work soon to give everyone a taste as to what we do around here!
