Patience Indian Blanket ( construction paper)

Patience in Social Studies today learned how the Indians weaved blankets.
I did not help her on this because it's art work. And it was supposed to be fun.
Today was her first day back from Christmas break so by the end of the four hours she wanted to do something to wind down. I love Heart of Dakota curriculum for Social Studies, Bible, Science Art because every lesson is so much fun!! And school is also supposed to be fun.

I remember...

When we were praying about taking the girls out of public school and made the choice to home school. I spent hours looking at blogs about home school. After all i only had a Associate Degree.The more I looked at them the more I fell in Love. Alot of this blog will not make much sense to someone who stumbled across it And it says Social studies page 161.

I will try to post more photo's of our Art work and experiment's. I just wanted to say if you have stumbled across the blog and the decision of home school is weighing on your heart...If your a mom it is for You and your child. You can do it. And the joy i feel everyday being with my girls is priceless. There are so many resources you can turn to if you feel your not quantified. Being a teacher to your children is the greatest gift God has given.

First Semester Completed....

We have completed 88 days of  School and have 80 more to go. And although I have Patience lesson plans saved in the computer I really need to take the time to upload. We are enjoying Heart of  Dakota for Social Studies. The daily Bible lessons are in twined with the lesson. The Horizon Math is awesome. Patience Phonics are coming along nicely. The quality of our time together means the world to me. I love Home schooling :)

Simplicity  has just begun home school. For English and Phonics - Bob Jones,
History- Life PAC, Math- Life PAC, Science- Life PAC. We do sign language, spanish, cooking, art. She was doing well in Public School however with much thought she wanted to Home school for this year. With our studies she attends 4 hours daily.

Cannot wait for our studies to begin for the New year.
