We ended our last school year in July. We had a grand picnic to celebrate. The kids and I have really enjoyed some time off of school. Yesterday we started a new school year, 6th grade for Joshua and 3rd for Emma Grace. We’re not really on any certain school year schedule (America or S. Africa). I guess we’re just on the Price family school schedule. 🙂 It works for us and that’s what matters, right?
A couple of weeks ago, I sat down with the kids to talk about what they learned the last school year and to start planning for the next school year. I love that our last school year found us learning from books as well as travels. The kids loved it, too. Here are Joshua’s highlights and things he learned…
~learned division better
~learned figures of speech
~started liking reading more
~toured the British Museum
~saw London and the countryside
~saw Dublin and the Irish countryside
~saw a castle
Both kids were in agreement that they wanted some extracurricular activities in their routine this go around. Joshua is now taking karate twice a week. He’s got some killer kicks going on. 🙂

Truly one of the most terrific things about homeschooling is the flexibility of scheduling and the travel. OK, that was two. 🙂
