Love learning....

We learn everyday...there are so many wonderful things in this world. So, we have learned a lot this summer just watching our garden grow and grow...that potatoes, beets, carrots and onions are underground. Lettuce, tomatoes, green beans, peppers are visible on the plant above ground.
Board breaking tonight in karate...it was really fun! That's how it should be. We are using the www.k12.com curriculum again this year...and loving it. Even I enjoy the classical approach to history, wish this is how I was taught when I was in school. Everything would've made more sense as they go in chronological order. The lessons are filled with Biblical stories, known facts, and thought on the unknown, geography, spinning the globe, Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, etc.

The Latin School that we are sending our children to two days a week using the Classical approach. This teaching style was one of the main reasons that we chose to send the children there. Tonight is "Parent Orientation"- it will be good to find out the curriculum and what my boy is going to learn this year .. oh, and what I'll have to teach :)

It's to the tune of "Five Little Ducks Went Out One Day"

Five Little Mice went out to school
Over a hill on a school bus
Teacher Mouse said, "Squeak,Sqeak,Squeak, Squeak."
But only four little mice came back

I count down to zero.

Then I say, "No little mice went out to school. Over a hill on a school bus. Teacher Mouse said, "Squeak, Squeak, Squeak, Squak.
For she forget it was Saturday!

Maybe I will make a video!!!
