Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

CO-OP

We participate in a home school co-op on Fridays.  It has been a lot of fun for the children.  Even Seth has seemed to enjoy his classes.  Although it is only 3 hours, all 5 of the children seemed to have learned quite a bit.  Many of the classes are very interesting.  I wish I was a little more creative and could offer to teach something of interest.  I did teach a fallacy class for the 12+ age group.  I thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the kids, and I think they enjoyed my class.  Joy's classes were all preschool age.  Every week she showed off some artwork, and we are currently trying to grow her lima bean plant.  Eva took a phonics, PE, and music class.  She brought home some interesting instruments she made.  It looked like lots of fun for her.  She made a guitar, a drum, maracas, and a couple of horns.


Jack took an Early American History class, a WWII class, and an Iditarod class.  Jack chose a musher, and charted the Iditarod dog race online.  He also made a large map of all the check points.  At the last class, everyone participated in an Ikidarod.  Jack was the lead dog on his sled, and his team won the race!

Here is Jack at one of his checkpoints, eating snacks and putting on his "booties".

Ivy took an art class, math class, and science class.  She has brought home a lot of artwork, and continues her drawing throughout the week.  Here is one piece she made for me.

(She's come a long way from when she tried to bolt out the door the day we met.)

And, as I mentioned in previous posts, Seth took a photography class.  He also took a personal finance class and his favorite class, PE.  Ah, boys!

If anyone knows of a great home school site for creative teaching/classes, I'd love to know about it!  I really am lacking in the "creative" field.

And, just for fun...I saw this weird statue nearby.  I have no idea what it means.

5 kind words:

Kristi

oh I love Ivy's poster...brought tears to my eyes!

Holly

Well, it is almost Easter. How about Up From the Grave He Arose?
I can't believe how well Ivy is doing considering she's only been "home" for fourteen months. She's a great example of older kid and out of birth order successful adoptions, eh?

Our family:

This time of year, so near the end I am usually pretty burned out on homeschooling. But everytime I bounce over to your blog I get rejuvenated. The school year is coming to the end and your photos encourage me to finish well!
Looks like Ivy is doing great with her writing and school! Good work mom!
Blessings,
Lydia

Sarah

Looks like fun!

Eva

I love Eva's musical instruments, and Ivy's poster is heart-melting material.
