School Projects

Here’s a snippet of what James and Matthew have been working on in school.

Homeschooling is still not going well in my mind. ┬áBad attitudes and a lot of laziness, but some days are better than others. Lately, ┬ámost mornings I don’t have the fortitude it make it happen, but that may be a whole different blog post.

  1. Looks great, Leah! I like how the kids are writing and drawing about your travel experiences – those will be fun to look at years later. Maybe you could do a whole astronomy study with all those cool Greek myths to go along with your stargazing!
