The BIG announcement!

Our family has taken the HUGE step this year of pulling the boys from public school and homeschooling them. We will have a 4th grader, 2nd grader and 3 year old gathered around our kitchen table to learn.

Our Classrooom

The Books!

The boys main curriculum is My Father's World. This curriculum is set up as a 5 year cycle that they learn together. The first year is Exploring Countries & Cultures. This year the boys will learn how much bigger the world is than our tiny little town and community. I want them to understand how much more there is out there and that God loves all of these other people just as much as He loves them! Here is an excerpt from the MFW website that explains a little more about multi age learning.

Each of our programs for grades 2-8 integrates Bible, literature,
history/geography, science, music appreciation, art, and character development.
Add grade level math and language arts for a complete curriculum program. When
teaching multiple children in kindergarten - 6th grade, our easy-to-use daily
lesson plans are usually completed in four hours each day when following our
recommendations for math and language arts.
