Recently... in life and in the blogosphere

We finished our first read-aloud chapter book today, Charlotte's Web! Celebrating with a movie night. The journey begins...

In just over a month, we will embark on a new, exciting, challenging, frightening, fun adventure.


Gigi will start kindergarten after Labor Day; we're doing a homeschool/charter school program where she will go to school two days a week and homeschool the other three. I'll share more about that when I figure out exactly what we're doing. We'll be going the classical route, I know that much.

I'm also processing another new change in our future... more on that later.

Can't remember who tagged me to do this the other day, but here we are! :)
