Landon and Kennady are both working on English/Language Arts for the 2014-2015 school year. Kennady has been working on a literature study on The Hobbit from Moving Beyond the Page, and Landon just started working on Analytical Grammar. Both are products we are reviewing.
Kennady got started on her new Science as well, since we also have the Weather and Climate study from Moving Beyond the Page for review. She had asked to study meteorology in her Grade 8 year, so this is a good introduction! Biology is the one subject that Landon hadn't quite finished by the official end of the 2013-2014 school year, so he is getting it done now.
We've decided that Kennady will continue with piano and guitar lessons through the summer, and she is also trying out an online piano instruction (yep, another review!) from Homeschool Piano.
In other news... Kennady's softball team had an undefeated season and won the championship. The second-place team was their sister team from the same town, so that made for a fun championship game!
And I have a funny quote to share. Landon posted the following on Facebook last week:
"You need to do school so that I have stuff to put on my blog." ~Mom, telling Kennady to do school.I actually did say something eerily like that!
Some of my favorite things this week... the stars, the sounds of birds and frogs, sunsets, and shopping with my boys.
