Break Time

I am very grateful that we started school early.  The gals and I have learned quite a bit together.  We've reviewed the fall of Rome, studied about monks, and learned about Justinian in history.  We've learned about maps, the make up of the earth, and rocks in science.  Gabby and I have made three lapbooks.  Kate has begun to do simple multiplication and division (first with pictures, but now we're learning the multiplication facts of x2).

Today we're taking a holiday.  We've worked hard.  Today is the first day public schools are in session where we are, and today would get us to 10% of our year completed (already?!).  Today we'll go out to lunch or stay in.  We'll read a bunch of books or maybe even turn on the TV.  We'll have to wait and see.  Today gets to be one of those fun days since we started so early.  We'll probably learn something along the way, but today isn't a day driven by lesson plans or lists.

I think they will approve.
