I have found over the past two years, that transitioning from summer break to the academic year can be a challenge when you never board the bus or walk to another building, so we are making a gentle, free-flowing change. We will be in the full swing of things in a few weeks when co-op begins. Last week we kicked off the changeover to daily lessons with a fun field trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
We were pleasantly surprised to find several interactive stations among the exhibits.
Up until our visit, I thought I knew what 6 artists we would study this year, but seeing how excited they were about Pablo Picasso, I added him to our curriculum.
Having the flexibility to travel and tour is one of my favorite things about homeschooling. Have you already started field trips too?

As we see the end of summer coming and prepare for the upcoming academic year, let's all slow down, explore nature, and take in the beauty of the world around us.

I don't know about you, but I am thrilled with the warmer weather after our long hard winter. Our family is finding so much joy in the little gifts of spring that nature offers, especially bird songs, budding leaves, and bright cheerful flowers.
