Thoroughly entertained by my eldest's way of incorporating Star Wars into whatever we're doing.

Another fun part about learning Korean is discovering all kinds of cute little viddys online. They're quite helpful too.
Here are some we've watched:

I asked my kids to help me make a grammar tutorial video for another homeschooling mom in need of help. The oldest two were more than happy to make a quick impromptu viddy... throwing in some harmony too (they kind of blow me away sometimes).
We're sharing this viddy here in case anyone else could benefit from memorizing 52 preposition words in a fun way. As a music teacher, I'm a HUGE advocate for putting everything (esp. memory work) to music! So have fun and sing along! (Tune: Mickey Mouse March)

Non-drying clay from Michaels
Hinged 2 sided picture frames from the Dollar Store
Play dough rollers to flatten out clay
Stylus made from sharpened chopsticks
|This one made me laugh out loud.|

I'm so thankful we have the freedom to homeschool.
I'm thankful for my children.
I'm thankful for my husband who supports homeschool.
I'm thankful for my life.
I'm thankful for Christ, who gives me strength to do anything according to His will.
Both of the oldest kids got an A on the Greek final test, but the fruit was especially sweet for my eldest.... as he was the most nervous about the test. I'd say he did just fine.
Can't say his mama could do the same though. ;)

|Meet our newly hired tutor, Alexis, a Greek servant, traveling back in time about 2000 years.|
|Students with their new tutor, "Alexis", which means helper/ defender.|
|Miss K rocking the homemade laurel wreath crown. (Made from bay leaves, smelled wonderful!)|
|A typical Roman snack or meal: fruit, dried fruit, nuts, cheese, bread.|
|"Rise of Rome", Mr. A summarizing the legend about Romulus, Remus, and the she-wolf.|
|Timeline: "The Roman Republic"|
|A friendly battle took place between these 2 sibs, in reviewing the Greek roots from last year. The fierce competition resulted with Mr. A as the boy champion & Ms. K, the girl champion. (These two are competitive!!)|
|Eagerly waiting for the teacher to call out the next card. Intense!|
|Dad teaching a lesson on "How Did Bible Come to Us" before bed. (Thank you Jesus for my husband!)|
|Favorite pic of the day. Melt. My. Heart.|
Thank you Lord for a fun filled, blessed first day of school. Apart from You, I can do nothing!
My kids were so giddy about the 1st day of school. Then again, t's always more exciting when the school room door closes for several days, and a sign like this appears.
So, my tip of the day is...
No need to do anything to get your kids stoked about the 1st day. Just close the door & post a sign! The suspense alone will drive 'em crazy in wanting to start school NOOOOWWWW!! ;)
