Our Adventure Has Begun!

Well, folks, we have one week of homeschooling already behind us and tomorrow begins week two. For several months now, my 3-year-old daughter has been begging to "do school with Mommy." So, once September came along, I finally got the ball rolling and she got her wish. And like I was certain she would, she already loves it and can't get enough. She even cried one or two days when we were finished with my planned activities. Wow! My fingers are tightly crossed that this energy and enthusiasm will stick around throughout the whole year. Guess we'll see...

Here are a few shots of the little "bookworm" in action:

One challenge that we've had to tackle is interference from this little munchkin:

But instead of excluding him, we've just decided to let him tag along and soak in whatever he can.

Any and all advice/suggestions about involving a toddler in homeschool activities would be very much appreciated! : )

Here's to a wonderful second week!

That's great! Cultivating and continuing that enthusiasm is so much easier when hs'ing (vs. traditional school)! I think it's smart -- for several reasons -- to include Cade as much as possible (or at least have him in the same room doing his own thing). One suggestion: have a box of activities that he gets to use during school ONLY, so that they are special and interesting to him for longer. Change them out every so often.

Have fun!
