Year In Review

As I sit here typing this, I am totally amazed that our second year of homeschooling is officially over. Today marked the end of a wonderful year filled fun, laughter, and lots of homeschooling friends. I thought I would share with you a few of our *trips* and nature walks throughout the year!

Our first official day of school

Hiking down to Little River with some friends

Doing a project on Turkey for our Homeschool Group Geography Fair

Fell in love with reading

Cracked each other up each day during school

Spent some time at the library reading

Learned about the Solar System

Made homemade bird feeders

Collected leaves for our very first leaf collection

Worked on our very first lapbook

Made art from the Holy Land

Made our bike ramp

Learned how to cook from scratch

Learned some Science with the Science guy

Made a birdhouse with dad

Conducted experiments

Walked in Space at the Science Center in Nashville

Walked on the high ropes at 42 feet in the air

And today we had fun at our last homeschool meeting of the school year. We had field day (sorry, no pictures for that one!) All in all I would say that we had a pretty awesome and fun year with a little learning thrown in.

I can't wait to see what God has in store for us during our third year of homeschooling.
