New Year..New Plan...

I am very excited this year as Damon joins us homeschooling for 2013. He had a great year at school, fulfilling some of the things that he felt that he needed. One of these things was to be a buddy to a Kindergartener. Thankfully a new family moved to the school when Damon returned in term 2 last year, so this meant that this little girl became his buddy for the rest of the year. Damon loved it!

Avril will also be a less casual homeschooler this year as she picks up some of her own work and joins her sister in some unit studies.

This will be our third year homeschooling. I couldn't imagine it any other way. I love that my children are at home learning and that I am part of that adventure. I love that I am at their excursions and activities, also that I can pick and choose what these experiences are. I love that when they make a new friend, we all do! Homeschooling is a really great lifestyle for us :)
