School daze...

This time of year can be a doozy for schooling!  Must keep motivated.  At least the weather is cooperating right now, very cold.  That keeps us inside and takes away any Spring fever we might be infected with.

Here is what we are all occupied with currently:
Carlina-working on her second online college course..Intro to Lit.  Still working 4 nights a week and a big help to me, of course!!

Julia-plugging away with her homeschooling.  She is a Junior and working on Algebra 2, Chemistry, American History and English.  Also working about 3 days a week.

Alicia is a freshman and working with My Father's World World History.  She is currently reading Beowulf which she doesn't find very entertaining.

Katie is studying the Old Testament and ancient history.  We are reading I Samuel together right now.  She is 11 and in 6th grade.

Garrett is studying the days of Jesus before he was crucified.  He is also learning about transportation and working on spelling and grammar.  He is in 3rd grade and working on his times tables, too!

Thomas is studying the Old Testament, too.  He is officially in Kindergarten but doing some 1st grade stuff. He is learning lots of Proverbs.

Anna is working on writing her name and learning letters.  She is not too interested in that right now, but we work on it a little bit each day.  She would rather be playing Princess or coloring.  She is 4.

David is starting to talk very well.  We enjoy his silly faces and crazy dancing.  He is a big Ham!  But what do you expect from the youngest??!!

We are also going to Awana weekly and working hard on memorizing our verses.

I love having them all home with me!!  I am so thankful for the opportunity to Home school!!!!

I am just not a big fan of January.  It is long and cold and  dreary did I say long?  I guess I am just not a big fan of winter in general.  December is a fun month with 2 family birthdays to celebrate and Christmas to look forward to.  But here we are..through January and a bit into February.  I don't mind Feb as much, it is just one step closer to Spring.  Here are some random January fun pictures:
