Week 1 on the Alphabet Path: The Letter A

Well, we are “officially” starting “homeschooling” here at St. Catherine’s Academy. (Our non-public school is officially registered with the state now.  That was the easiest thing Craig has ever done!)  I’m borrowing the “curriculum” from Elizabeth Foss.  Heavy on literature and saints, and everything else follows behind.  So the idea is that we follow a little boy, […]

Homeschooling digest 3/18/2012

Friday Lucy helped me make strawberry jam – our best batch yet.  She was very excited about making it so we didn’t have to buy it any more. Saturday the girls helped me weed a bed at Nana and Papa’s and scatter seeds for the polyculture.  That meant lessons on mulch, different kinds of seeds, […]

Homeschooling update 3/16/2012

Busy weeks… Last Saturday we all went fishing with SJV.  The girls each caught several fish and Samantha won a pink fishing pole for catching the most of any girl.  The girls all got to play with worms, and Clare tried to eat one. Sunday I took Lucy and Samantha to a chamber music concert […]

Homeschooling Journal 1/30/2012

Homeschooling Journal 1/25/2012

Lucy can tie her tap shoes! They’re not quite tight enough usually, but she’s doing it without help already. That puts me to shame. I couldn’t tie my shoes in kindergarten. We went to daily Mass at SJV and survived it. I’m hoping to make that a Wednesday tradition. Clare stood up without anything – […]

Homeschooling Journal 1/24/2012

Samantha started ballet today. (Lucy started yesterday – walked right in and did very well. The teacher called her “a very smart little girl”.) Samantha was more shy. Lucy did her whole class for her, while Sam sat with me and Clare. She finally got up to put on dress-up clothes, and then did the […]
