Welcome "Back" to school and to our new school blog!

I hope you have fun reading about our many adventures in homeschooling this year. I have learned some new blogging tricks and I hope that it makes for a more interesting read.

This year in History class we will be working in Tapestry of Grace's Year 2. Y2 covers from the Fall of Rome in 450 A.D. to the signing of the American Constitution, which occurred 1787. I really love TOG because while it has the advantages of being very "hands on" as they say, it also it very reading intensive. I learn a great deal from each unit myself.

In Science class we will be working from a textbook entitled "General Science". As you might gather from that title, it covers a wide range of scientific topics from Geology to Biology. However, each chapter contains many experiments and the boys are already pestering me each day to begin Science class.

In Math, the boys have begun Pre-Algebra and once again we are using Math U See. What can I say? The boys love it. It's probably without question one of their favorite subjects. For Super, it is his favorite with Science trailing in second place. For Tutone, strangely enough, Grammar is his favorite subject but Math is a very close second.

I hope you have a great year! Drop in often!
