Playing Catch-up....

I was too busy trying to get our act together
in our little corner of the Garden State to post
for the last couple of days. Now I am not sure where
I "left off"...lol.
I will be posting our First Grade Plans (such as they are) this week,
and some fun links that I have found recently.
Meanwhile, here are some pictures
from our weekend.

Princess was very excited to receive a surprise package in the mail
from Zilla...

the look in the picture is her saying "I can't believe it!!" over and over.
It was a huge hit...in fact I think this bag is replacing the very pink Disney Princess-y
book bag that she was going to be using to ferry her supplies back and forth to her "science class"
this year.Weather permitting of course.She is in Princess heaven right now.
Thank you Zilla.

We also did some other stuff..swimming...shucking corn...picking produce..eating..UNO..
maths...lolly-gagging around the infield...lolly-gagging around the outfield...(quick..name that movie!)
snuggling with the kitties.
OK, it is one picture from the weekend...I am experiencing what can only be called "technical difficulties".

I need to get an UNO game. I wonder if Cate would play it. Zilla sure does know P.

Looking forward to the first grade plans but no pressure. ;)

I love the bag.

I think this is what August is for - the swimming, shucking, and lollygagging.

That's why we begin our school year after Labor Day. August is about the lazing around; September is about apples and pencils and notebooks (oh my!).

That look on her face is priceless! And like Nina, I'm looking forward to your plans, but...no pressure. :o)

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
