The bell rang, please take your seats

School is back in session!  I wasn't planning to start until next week, but the books I needed to start the school year came sooner than expected, so we started on Monday.  We're easing into the school year slowly, adding a bit more to our schedule each week.  This year we'll be studying early American history using the American Girl books, and being helped along the way with Portraits of American Girlhood unit studies.  Don't be fooled by the "girl" part of it, it's equally educational for boys!  I have designated Jeremy as Field Trip Man, and have plans to send him all over the NW with the kids for fun trips this year.  I have high hopes for a positive and productive school year, and I think we're going to have a lot of fun on the way too!!!

Make sure you go visit "Pioneer Farms" along the way. I LOVED that place when I was homeschooled. I think it's somewhere down near Northwest Trek. Maybe? Anyway ... HIGHLY recommend that place for a lot of hands-on learning!!!!
