AO Year 1, Day 1

After a few weeks off from school, we started 1st grade today.  What a fun day it was!

Done with Our First Kindergarten

I've been really terrible about blogging for about, oh, the last year.  It hasn't been a priority, and life has been busy.

But I wanted to get a quick blog post in to mark the end of Kyla's kindergarten year.  This is momentous for me.  It means, "we did it!"  We homeschooled, and it was a success!  We took 2 1/2 months off in the middle when things weren't going so well, and now are taking almost another month off at the end before we start 1st grade.  We took days off when we had places to go and days off when we didn't feel well.  But most days, we "did school."

Charlotte Mason was a British educator who lived from 1842-1923.  Though she never had children of her own, she devoted her life to the education of children.  Thus, she grew to understand the behaviors and tendencies of children very well.
