Today marks our 186th day of school for this year which means we have met the legal obligation of the amount of days we must do school. While I am not quite done for the year its nice to know that I have done what has been legally required of me and can end my year on time!
This is the first year I have done school from January to December and so far I like it. This is the most hectic time of year for me. Due the holidays and constant winter illnesses, it is hard to stay on track. Therefore I have prepared well. With the classes we did over the summer, we are almost ready for a full holiday break! I will stop the week of Thanksgiving and not do much until after New Years. Gess will do some computer lessons to keep English and Math practiced and boredom down to a minimum. We will also focus on some Christmas lessons and do lots of family activities.
While school will be breaking my blogging will be to a minimum as well. I will try to post something once a week, probably holiday related. But don't worry. Come January I will be excited and ready to get back to school and eager to share what we are doing.
Thanks for being such faithful readers. I just love it when I hear that someone was helped by a resource I shared. I also love getting those resources from others so maybe during my down time I can do more blog reading of my own! Feel free to share resources anytime you want and don't forget, we have a special group on Facebook for moms who homeschool children with Down syndrome. I learn so much from the other moms there. I would love for you to join us!
And of course feel free to follow me on Facebook. It is a personal page where I share much of my personal life as well as my homeschooling special needs resources. I do some times share my political point of view but am careful to respect all opinions and try not to spam any one topic too much. I love spending time reading what my followers are up to as much I as I do posting about what is going on in my life.
