Slow Go

We haven't been doing much in the way of school work the past few weeks and it is really starting to show.  The kids are getting bored.  Today I pulled out some workbooks I had put back for supplements and some cut and paste activities and let the kids go at it.  They were thrilled to get to do some work!  I am very excited to be getting the rooms in order around here.  Soon the classroom will be ready to organize and make into a space we can work in every day and I cannot wait!  It has been a slow go to get here but I know the wait will be worth it!

YAY for Free Downloads!

If you know me, you know that I am cheap frugal.  I don't like to spend a ton of money on anything.  So today when I found some free downloads I was very excited.

My first free download is something I had hoped to come across soon.  Both of my children love art.  They are so young I just wasn't sure the best way to go about introducing them to the great artists.  I was so excited when a great email popped up in my inbox!  Confessions of a Homeschooler is offering a GREAT Artist Study curriculum!  I can't wait to dive into it and get things ready for our next school year!

The second free download is from a new-to-me website called Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett.  She is offering some great fun projects for summer boredom!  YAY!!!

If you download either of these fun things let me know.  I would love to hear how they work for you or how you plan to incorporate them into your life.
