Our Homeschool is Taking Root!

I am loving putting the kids' work in laminated sheets.  They are reusable,  make virtually no mess and are easily erasable.
Homeschooling has been gotten easier and we're slowly creating a routine that works for us. I just hope the kids' Jewish school will continue to let me pull them out for secular studies.  I really enjoy being such a big part of their education.

Live and Learn

Okay it wasn't a great year in our KinderGarden.  We moved to a new house and got started a bit too late and I think I chose some poor places for my crops. We had some growing pains this year, but its all good.

Why? Because we did a lot of learning too! We planted things I've never grown before (carrots and cucumbers), we invested in some perennials (rhubarb, apple trees, peach trees and plum trees) and we learned a lot about pests vs beneficial bugs.  All stuff that was new to the kids and to me!

A Garden of our Own

We've been renting and now we've bought a home! We got a double lot, so we have plenty of space for a new garden.  The previous owners weren't really gardeners, so we're starting from scratch, except that hidden being vines of honeysuckle there is a peach tree, which I've liberated!  Enjoy the pictures!
