Checking In

Ok - so I know it has once again been too long since I posted on here!

To catch up - I am so excited to say that WE FINISHED KINDERGARTEN!!!  Whoo hoo!!  I can't tell you the feeling of accomplishment to finish your first year of homeschooling! It was a super fun year!!

Seth was approached at church by a member who said "Congratulations for finishing kindergarten.  Did you get a diploma?" and Seth's reply was "Nope! I got pizza!!"  Yep!  We went out for pizza that night!

So Summer has started.  We have taken a couple of weeks completely off but starting next week we will be doing some handwriting and sight word review every couple of days or so...he was really just starting to really make strides in his handwriting at the end of the school year and I don't want to lose that!  Plus it will not hurt him to continue to do a little school work through the summer!

I am currently working on a new chore system for us!  I am taking the things I like from several different programs and coming up with my program.  I am really excited about it and hoping and praying that it works! Once I get everything nailed down and get the system started I will make a post of what we are doing :-)

I am also diving into the first grade curriculum and planning out our first grade year!  Oh how I love this curriculum!  It is going to be such a fun year!

Oh we are also enjoying weekly play dates at the park with our homeschool group!!  The moms are enjoying spending some time fellowshipping with one another and sharing in all of our couponing and price matching experiences and learning how to be better at that while the kids enjoy playing with one another!  We have done it for 3 weeks now and are already wanting to make sure that this continues all summer!  It is the highlight of our week!

Ok - so I think I got you all caught up now LOL!

Until next time!
