Night School

We wanted to study Astronomy with the kids but couldn't see how we'd fit into our schedule this fall. Dave agreed to teach them in the evenings over the summer. The plan is to fit as much in before school starts back up and then continue on into the fall. This way we can have a leisurely pace if needed. I don't know about you but our fall is always jam packed.

Dave started the first lesson with the kids tonight. They loved it! Boo & Elvis each have a notebook that goes along with the book. They are using Apologia. Boo studied space before when we were doing KONOS but it was years ago and she was quite little. I don't think she remembers much of it. Bugs sits and listens in and I know he picks up facts here and there. He's only 4 so I'm not worried about him. We'll do the official course with him when he is older. Maybe Princess will join him! =0)

Listening to Daddy read aloud.

They could hardly wait to work on the first lesson in their new workbooks!

We love Apologia!
