So here we are in our second month of homeschooling and I have just revamped our reading schedule. It looks a little more intensive, however, M1 seems interested so far in the new readings which is good. I was reading a lot on Charlotte mason and thought “what am I waiting for?” so I decided I might as well start now. The curriculum is outlined at Ambleside online so I just adapted it to suite us. There’s lots of read alouds and we’ve just finished peter pan. Although, since we have the Disney book, M1 kept asking why the pictures from the novel didn’t look the same as the Disney book and why other things were different. FYI Tinker bell is actually evil, at least that’s what we think. I think that we’ll have to read the novels first before he sees any movies.


Currently working on my homeschooling resources list, it meant to help make things easier for me just in case my computer crashes and I lose my favorites list. Just thought it might also be helpful to others. Just find out I won’t be completing my thesis proposal till September so it give me more time to work up all my data, yeah! The end is in sight, must start writing. Where do you start when writing a 200 page thesis, sounds so daunting. Great play date today. I had organized a play date with 3 other homeschooling mothers and it had been rained out the last 2 weeks so finally able to meet up today. Kids had a great time at the splash park although M2 did not touch the water. He spent his time chasing birds, at least he had fun.
