After an itty bitty motorbike crash a few years ago Drew has been more than a little hesitant to ride a bike. We've tried and tried, but he wasn't interested. Until today! We may have ended up in the bushes a few times, but he got it. There's no stopping him now. So proud of this little buddy!!

Some great new additions to our "Who Was?" book collection. My kids love these short books and they're filled with info!

When winter never ends, all the books have been read, and all the games have been played >> you find something new to try.

In a discussion about high school classes, credits and future plans with my oldest daughter this morning we came across this career test online. It's a quick 15 questions and the results were really interesting!

This morning Eden couldn't think of more than two things that interested her enough to pursue and now she's researching what's involved in becoming a news anchor, interior designer, and dance instructor/choreographer.

One of the major differences between The Logic of English and other LA programs we've looked at is that they encourage students to start learning and writing in cursive instead of manuscript.

They make some good arguments at why it's preferable >> it's less fine motor skill intense, all lower case letters start at the same place on the baseline {there are 7 starting points with lowercase manuscript letters}, spacing in and between words is controlled, it's less likely kids will mix up b & d or p & q.

LOE has a manuscript option if you aren't interested in teaching cursive but we decided to give this a try. Drew's first lesson is in the books πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Oh the agenda today > digging into a new program we're testing. You know that for the most part I'm not a big fan of curriculum and workbooks, but sometimes I need a specific tool to accomplish a specific goal, and a program might be the solution. Some of my kids are struggling spellers. I've tried a few approaches over the years and so far haven't found anything we love - so here we are. I've heard great things about The Logic of English so we're giving it a try. I'll keep you posted on our experience!

Putting the awkward under-the-stairs space to good use with a cozy reading nook. πŸ πŸ“š
