What's Going On in the Homeschool

We don't have any formal academics going on right now -- the boys finished their spring checklists just before we went to Ireland, which was June 12th.

Some of us are going on a camping trip later on in the month so I guess the bottom line is that we are on holiday. When we get back I will start pulling things together and getting the kids started with some basic 3Rs.

So this log will be rather quiet until August. I'm going to try to keep track of the kids' reading and anything else that seems to have recordkeeping value. A lot of times, these "off" seasons provide a wealth of experiences to build on.

Here are some articles on documenting "life learning"
I liked this one Is Football Educational? particularly since football is so big in this house and some of our relatives have made careers out of sports -- not as players but working in the field.
Here is an "Unschooling Curriculum" page at Sandra Dodd's website.
