We are back to school here. It has been an exciting time for the kids. Last week we did back to school hair cuts, and I just broke down and cut Avery's beautiful and TANGLY locks of hair. No, I have never cut girls' hair before. I just went for it, and it's not perfect, but I have to say, it is CUTE. She looks darling with it short and it really fits her fun and spunky personality.

I look back at my homeschooling years as this little "sweet spot" in my parenting. I truly loved it. I feel that both kids really gained a love of learning and life and that the kids relationship is stronger for it. I feel that it is time for Jackson and Avery to have a little different experience. The classes are really small here and the schools just feel really "cozy" and "warm."
I am a little sad to give up our History Curriculum, because I have loved it so much, but I think I am going to make it a priority and keep going with the Story of the World, and our Classical Conversation songs.
