back to home school

Our Home School got underway earlier this month.  I can truly say that we have gotten off to a GREAT start!  Some things, we are doing differently and other things, the same.  I have really felt the benefit of S being one year older.  Her attention span has increased and she is able to entertain herself better this year. 
E is in fifth grade, M and J are in second grade and S is in kindergarten.  My educational goals for our school this year are to keep things focused, relevant, and fun.
