Year Three! (2013-2014)

It’s hard to believe that we are in our 3rd year of homeschooling.  It was a dream, a vision for more than 6 years before it became a reality.  And now, here we are:
I just can’t believe that after this year we have only one more year in elementary school AND that I now have a high school student.  WOW!!
We are already months into our Fall semester as I am writing this.  We are again participating in a wonderful co-op.  Our extra-curricula activities this year are:
  • Swim Team  – for both
  • Ballet – Leah
  • Violin – Wyatt
  • Awana – Leah
  • Children’s Choir – Leah sings, Wyatt is helping out with sound and video
  • Youth Praise Band – Wyatt sings and sometimes plays the violin
We are being challenged and learning a lot this year through our hodgepodge of curriculum:
