Strawberries 2010

This was our second year going to the fields and we enjoyed it even more this year. The weather was beautiful, the kids helped more and the berries were oh, so yummy & the jam turned out great.

Another Year Gone, Another Year Ahead

We just finished up our school year here at Camp Silly.

We completed this wonderful series from My Father's World. We used their Kindergarten and First Grade (learn to read programs) and we loved it very much. So much fun!

We are taking a nice LOOOONNNNNGGGG (12 week) summer break to pick and can strawberries, visit DC, vacation in Florida and spend time being completely lazy, taking naps, watching movies, running through sprinklers and eating lots and lots and lots of ice cream.

Yet, we are all very excited about the upcoming school year. We hand selected our science topics and projects -- all just waiting in the closet to be devoured. We received our history literature in the mail and the girls screamed with exciting. It's almost hard to take the summer break (but we need it). Here is "some" of what we will be picking up with in the fall. As much as I just adore MFW, we have decided to take a break from a structured curriculum and do something with less structure, leaving room for more time to explore science & history topics at our own pace.
