We had a soft start to our school year two weeks back. We read the religion for Catholic Coffee Club and the kids were required to do just 15 minutes of math each day. We did spend several nights outside looking up at the stars. It is so thrilling to see a shooting star. One night we saw about 20, 3 were huge. It was enough to hook us for the next several nights even though the local temps were hot and humid even at 11 pm.
I must say that this is the kind of learning that I find most exciting. Please parents don't fret when life gets crazy and makes schooling difficult, just turn it into a lesson.
The kids continue with small faith lessons. We are still doing the 15 minutes of Math (as long as we have internet). We have all been causally reading or working with reading games online for at least 15 minutes. Now mother nature has sent us another fun lesson to mess up our full on start. We can and will postpone most other subject to make use of the natural learning that will take place. The science of weather, the social aspect of a crisis, the humanity of helping those in need, the faith that God is powerful and bigger than a hurricane.
