The big news of the day is that I discovered a school for homeschooled children today. They attend for one and a half days a week. For the full day they cover the full range of academic subjects, and for the half day they have “specials.” Tomorrow is specials day, so Lydia will cover the following subjects: hand sewing/crafts, musical theater, fibers (e.g, learning how to make yarn out of wool, etc.,) and math games. I am so excited for her.
Also, this charter school BUYS ALL OF MY CURRICULUM for me!! I have spent hundreds of dollars on math and writing curriculum, but this school will purchase whatever curriculum parents want and give it to the parents. All of the curriculum I’m using I could have gotten for free. It’s unbelievable.
The homeschool also has optional, whole-family field trips.
Lydia had a great harp lesson today. I observed her teacher teach her how to figure out a piece by ear. I felt like I was observing a work of pedagogical art. She is such a talented teacher.
We spent the rest of the afternoon and evening outside. I spent a peaceful hour with Ammon studying scriptures while he crawled around. The girls then played with the neighbors, and we all had dinner. After dinner Abe drew the girls on the basketball court. Cute pictures to follow.
