Summer 2014: A Review In Pictures

We still have a good month of summer here in the Northeast but ultimately, autumnal days, apple picking, and holiday preparations will be here before we know it. We are easing into our homeschool year with a focus on Preschool and Kindergarten materials.  Our homeschool group is kicking off the school year with a back to homeschool picnic and a trip to Bluff Point State Park. I am very excited to begin this school year.  🙂

This post is a simple round-up of our summer and our never-ending educational endeavors. We consider learning  to be a whole life experience. Learning doesn’t begin with a specific curriculum or scheduled activities and summer is full of experiences and opportunities for feeding the young, curious mind.
