Today’s “school”

Today it is 58 degrees! These cabin fever people are getting out!

Peeling last years garlic on the front porch

To be planted today

Clothes drying OUTSIDE

Pennsylvania German Lessons at a kind Amish neighbor

Playing outside

Reading tonight

Looking for any Spring nature that abounds. What more could we ask to learn?

That's what I love about school at home! It has been beautiful here in the deep south also and we have been outside as much as possible. Math is calling this morning though. Also trying to throw a little life discipline skills here and there :).

Is this incredible, or what??? Unfortunately so far today, I have been cooped up inside a grocery store, and now have to leave for a session with Austin's counselor. AAGGHH! Won't be long, tho, before we're out there planting veggie seeds!

It sounds like a wonderful, life-filled curriculum. I bet the kids will love spring and summer there.

We had wonderful weather today - I thought I should give the kids a "sun" day. We have snow days and the public school has 'Below 0 days. Today seemed like a perfect day for a "Sun" day.

Trust you had a wonderful day.

Ang, Love your blog. Has your new life also changed your focus on homelearning? I'd love to hear more about how you have simplified and organized your school/materials now that your new home is smaller than the "palace". Thanks!

I hope you enjoy the Pennsylvania German lessons! I took lessons several years ago, when they were offered by a Mennonite church in a neighboring town. It was very interesting and a lot of fun. My favorite word is ferhoodled and I use it as often as possible.

You look so cute in that photo! Thanks, I was waiting for one!

Hi Angie, I am interested in planting garlic and have been searching for info on the net and have found that you need to plant in the fall. May I ask you why you plant now? Just learning and want to know the secrets if any. Great picture by the way. Kim

you really should plant garlic in the fall but we planted it directly in the snow last jan 08 and it did just fine. we got here kinda late this year.

not to many changes with school here and being more simple except for the kids have much more to explore and learn on the farm, etc.

Glad you got to enjoy the weather :-)

Nothing like a warm spell after the bitter cold.
