Oh. And having a baby!
The time has come to start once again.
While most families probably start in September, there are so many other activities starting back up that month (ie: Bible Study, Cubbies, etc) that we decide to take that month off, too.
Oh the joys of flying by the seat of your pants...
Last year we really focused on letters for the most part. Recognition and writing.
This year, we're focusing on reading/phonics, math, clockwork (which she's shown an interest in), and geography (again, she has a specific interest).
The cool thing about our homeschool is that I'm not doing it alone. The husband definitely helps, but also, our friend Adrienne meets with Esther a few times a week. This year, she'll be focusing mostly on phonics and math.
We're also doing more things with Abigail, who is two and a half. She's quite interested in the things that Esther does. I think it will be fun to do things with the two of them at the same time!

Check out Adrienne's post on their homeschooling plan now that Burkley is super interested!
