School Year in Full Swing!

Sorry for my absence to blogging, it has been extremely busy around here lately!  Baby shower here at the house which resulted in a lot of cleaning!  Soldier boy has been out of town for 2 weeks, so that means wearing both mommy and daddy hats, exhausting!  Tuesday we started our Fall Semester at Fern Academy and we've having a lot of fun.  The kids attended their first Classical Conversations class and LOVED it, they can't wait to go back next week.  Here are a few pics of the kids in action at home:

First Day of Classical Conversations

Gman loved working on his Batman Preschool Pack from 1+1+1=1.  
"B" is for Batman tracing fun!
Forming his letters with play-doh!

One proud boy after doing his Batman Color by Number all by himself!

One thing I'm doing more of this year is letting the kids pick a subject they want to learn more about and do a unit study using lapbooks.  Livy decided she wanted to study about the ocean and fish after checking out Rainbow Fish from the library.

We started on our Ocean Lapbook today:

Working hard on Mammals vs. Fish!

I found some great printables for our book via Homeschool Share!  We added a Fish life cycle  wheel and whale vocabulary cards.

Stay tuned for more Ocean Life activities!
