On February 8, Doug and I picked the kids and all their belongings from school and took them home. We took a couple weeks off to de-program them from the structure and routines that come from a school setting.
The past few months have consisted of basic math and language arts studies with a splash of a Pioneer Unit and some Government thrown into the mix. We've done volunteer work at the church on Tuesday mornings, we've visited the Telus World of Science, taken a trip to Calgary, helped Grandma with her yard work and done some babysitting. Our homeschooling consists of life learning. We ask ourselves: "what will the kids need to know in order to manage a home on their own.
I love that our facilitator is in agreement with how we're running this show. I like that he's on board with how we've decided to *school* the kids. Now that the school year is almost over, I can look back and think that it has been a really good year!
