Homeschool Year 2010-2011

This school year ended with a fizzle, not a bang. I worked the kids so hard to prep for standardized testing that we were all burned out by the end of April. We spent the month of May mostly reading and taking field trips, nothing in the way of organized lessons at all. They also had a few classes to finish out the year and that was what helped me live guilt-free day to day. But for my own peace of mind, here is a quick recap of the school year, just a month by month list of classes and field trips that we experienced. We started the school year with a packed calendar and by the end of the year had tapered off to focus more on academics at homes. Next year I'm going to try to balance more. All in all, we had a great year and I feel like I'm getting the hang of this homeschool adventure.
