Homeschool co-op has begun!

We are now a part of a homeschool co-op! This is such an answer to prayer . . . probably two years worth of praying! We've had two weeks already, and the kids are both loving it!
The morning begins with "opening exercises" -- some stretches, Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, prayer, a Scripture passage and devotional, and a song. Then it's off to classes . . .

First period is a history class -- Lael's class is learning about heroes of the faith, while Jaden's class is looking at important people in American history. The kids made headbands and clay beads after learning about Pocahontas.

Second period for Jaden is a math class -- things like finding patterns in the world around you, so it's very hands-on. Lael is learning square dancing for her gym class (and she loves it)!

The final class of the morning is soccer for Jaden, and an art class for Lael where she is learning about different cultures and time periods and some of the things different people groups have made.
Coming up this week is a field trip to the fire station . . . stay tuned for more pictures to come!
