Day #1

 Started the day with a run…there was complaining, so we immediately turned back and did an hour of “home economics”. Then, got our 3 miler in. Home for breakfast, math, Spanish, typing and ASL. The kids actually loved it. 😳 Documentary with lunch, then science…each researched how to regrow potatoes & garlic, then shared with “the class”. Then we got outside to put their research to the test and plant. Outside play and then got ready for a family bike ride/skating/scootering. One kids meltdown was an indicator we were done for the day. Quiet time in their rooms before wrestling and dinner.

Day #2

3 miles 🏃‍♀️ done. Continued with Math, Spanish, Typing and ASL. They were all tested and are all proficient in laundry👌Learned about mushrooms and mycelium 🍄 Didn’t get to History, but got 2 full hours of play outside. Sometimes 4 kids is awesome…built in friends! Capped the school day off with the family run/bike/skate we didn’t get to yesterday (Ani almost got stuck)🤪 Heading into the wrestling room, then dinner and family game. Day 2>Day 1

Easy morning, started off with Math, Spanish, typing…ASL, kids are ready for next lesson 🥳 Kids worked on Agent Orange reports. Researched how to regrow onion and celery.

Hoping to finish the week strong tomorrow.


+ facebook memory from 6 years ago.

Still one of my favorites:

“By far one of the coolest projects we’ve done (and we do a lot of cool projects). The girls learned how to crochet recycled plastic bags into sleeping mats for the homeless. They also each contributed one item to go into a care package to be donated along with the mat and a blanket. SO proud of these girls!!!!” Girl Scouts Girl Scouts of Orange County
