One down, two to go!

Outside classes, that is!  Yesterday, Tuesday, was Spencer's last Art class.  I enrolled him in a 6 week art class for homeschoolers that met on Tuesday afternoons at the Arts Council in town.  It was a neat class, and he enjoyed it, despite not knowing any of the other kids.  For Spencer, who is not outgoing in the least, not knowing anybody in the class was a huge negative!  But I think it was a big confidence builder for him - because he did it!  He went to class every week, learned about art and artists and didn't have an anxiety attack!  He did keep to himself though - it's not like he MADE any new friends.  Other good news - as a result of taking this class and surviving, he is willing to try one of the art camps offered by the community colleges this summer.  I am looking at a Cartooning camp that I think would be perfect for him.  (Hope I have a hundred extra bucks so I can pay for it.)

We still have co-op classes on Thursday afternoons  - Kennady has a preschool class; Landon takes Art, Maryland History, and Geography; Spencer takes Art, Geography and Civics; and Harrison takes Geography and Civics.  Those classes will run through the end of April.  On Friday afternoons the kids are all in a gym class that our homeschool fellowship group offers.  I wish every homeschooler had access to great co-ops like these! 

Now, the art class is finished, but that doesn't mean I have one things less on my calendar each week... Landon starts baseball this week! On Thursday no less!  Busiest day of the week, although at least I don't have anything in the evenings.
