Going Back to School
The school season has returned! Over the last week, parting out LEGO® sets has given way to preparing to return to the classroom. Both Rachael and I have updated syllabi for the various things that we teach. This semester, I face the challenge of teaching a class both on Tuesday/Thursday and Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedules. Keeping things divided in a way that fits into both schedules keeps you on your toes!
Both Rachael and I will teach for the home school co-op this year. She’s done it before, but now I get to join the fun. Added to the longer week in the classroom for me, this makes it much tougher to find time to go enjoy a national park together. But we’re thankful for me to teach more – something I love to do – and we’ll enjoy this semester preparing for whatever is coming in the future!
What to do While not Adding Parts?
This weekend I caught up our books. Not a very fun activity, but very needful. There’s always a new challenge – this time the bookkeeping software wasn’t getting every transaction when importing them. Good thing we make learning a lifetime activity!
Getting School Started
Rachael here to share about our start to school this go around. Really, we are “year round schoolers”, and I’m aiming for a 6 weeks on, 1 week off routine, with a few longer breaks interspersed. This interval of school got started at the beginning of August and will run through the end of Sept. Yeah, it comes to be 9 weeks, but that’s the way travels and visitors fall on the calendar. Of course, we are nearing the end of year 1 in the Amblesideonline.org curriculum, so I’m joyfully taking on the joy of prepping year 2.
