My Newest Student

The carrot he drew all by himself!
This year, we welcome our youngest son into our school.

For years, I have been telling people that one of my biggest challenges is schooling around a preschooler.  Now, for the first time, we are including him in our studies.

What will change? 
Not much.

He'll have a few workbooks to teach colors and letters and numbers ... all of which he pretty much already knows, so I guess this is more of a review.  As for the other subjects, he's been listening to our read-alouds and science books for at least two years already.  Every now and then, he'll surprise me with some fact about the swimming creatures we studied last year or even with a detail from a book that we have read.  This year, he's already learned some of Laura's grammar jingles and soon he'll be hearing us read about human anatomy and American History.  He won't remember it all, but somewhere in the back of his brain there will be a little notch that we will build on in years to come.


  1. What a sweet post! I'm sure that you will have an exciting year :)

  2. Hey! I just read all of your posts. It all looks so great. I love reading about the experiences of my friends and what they're doing. NOW! When are we all gonna playdate again and more importantly, when are you and I getting together to chat? :)
