While the learning and projects never stop here, August brings an end to the long, lazy days of summer. I know much of the country doesn't start school until September or at least until late August, but down here are hot, cranky, and tired of summer by the time August rolls around. A change of gears is a welcome distraction to help us through these last few weeks (or months) of summer's heaviness.
We spent last week developing simple rhythms, organizing materials, and brainstorming projects. Ella picked up where she left off in Life of Fred (still working through the first elementary series books) and we began our study of colonial America. Of course, we left plenty of time for fun extras!
