A Day in the Life

Homeschooling this year has been different. With a vacation planned next month and a huge cross-country move planned the month after that, we knew we could not use a regular curriculum successfully.
The perpetually optimistic side of me realized that in spite of that we had a huge opportunity because of these things well be doing. We've been doing all sorts of research instead. We are learning about the things we'll see on the way and while we're at Disney World. We're studying states, countries, animals, foods... It's been fun! Overall it's been really nice to chill and focus on just one thing a day and let the boys learn mostly at their own pace.
This morning Jeremiah is reading with Nathaniel and Joshua is watching a video about Jacob Barnett and feeling not so alone in his love of challenging math. I think I'll go get some bread dough and then we'll learn a little about Georgia.
