This blog is my attempt to document our busy but BLESSED lives. A child of God, wife to one, and mom to 6 fabulous kids. We are in our 8th year of homeschooling using a Classical approach.

Come along for the good, the bad & the ugly.

Random 5 on Friday ~ August 1st

1 ~ August 1st already? Wowzers, the year is flying by!

2 ~ We started eating “clean” on Monday. It is definitely a learning curve but I have already started to see the benefits.

3 ~ I played college guidance counselor this week when Marie decided she wanted to major in Computer Science with a Gaming Technologies concentration and minor in Graphic Design. On paper it looks like an amazing line up up classes she will need to complete. We have a meeting with a real academic advisor in October when we will travel to Liberty University for a tour. Yes, she has already been admitted to Calvin College, where she completed her summer scholarship program, but she wants to keep her options open for scholarships and all.

She now has to take PreCalculus for her Senior year, which she doesn’t mind.  We are going to use the program from Teaching Textbooks.

Plus, she now wants to try out for the cheer team at each perspective school. I am thrilled that she wants to get back into the sport as she is a good cheerleader and it helps her come out of her shell. First step is to get her back in shape after being off a team for almost a year. Each school requires a timed mile as part of the tryout process.

4 ~ I am going to be hosting a science class in my home on Fridays starting in Sept. God  put this idea into my head when the doors kept closing for us to return to co-op this year. So far, I have 6 kids who have confirmed they will attend. I am so excited!

5 ~ McKenzie loves her new Hot Shots gymnastics class. She has been learning so much in the 3 weeks she has been enrolled. On Wednesday, she did a back bend onto a map and last night at home she conquered the cartwheel. Go McKenzie!
