As you can see by the irregularity of my posts, lifeschooling can be consuming at times. Or rather, lifeschooling with MY children can :) I was thinking that every homeschooler/lifeschooler does things their own way, with their own twist. So here, are the ABC’s of lifeschooling for our family:

It’s been a challenging few months for us, due to the fact that my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. She had lung removal surgery, and is still recovering, she is doing well, although the cancer is still present. Who knew you could live with just one lung?!? Hey….I feel a Unit Study coming on :) Lapbook, perhaps? So, our “schedule” lightened up a bit because I was in a bit of a haze there for awhile and off to dr. appts. and such, but we are catching back up and everything’s getting on track again. We school through the holidays off with a few days off for Christmas and New Year’s instead of the full two weeks so we catch up a lot during that time as well. It’s nice being able to be flexible. Okay, so I have a lot more to say about what the kids are up to in their studies, but my oldest is adamant that I need to shut his light/door for him….ah, one day I just KNOW I will recall, lovingly, being needed. Until next time…
