Charting our own course...

In days of old, sailors would keep a journal while at sea to chronicle their lives as they travelled the world in search of adventure... and perhaps an ounce or two of treasure. In this spirit, our family has also set its own course. My husband's career as a naval aviator keeps us travelling to distant shores... adventures await with every new 'port 'o call' we visit! Because of our nomadic lifestyle we have also embarked upon the adventure of homeschooling our twin boys, age 6 (aka: The Crew). The Crew started their 2nd grade work on 06 Aug 2012. I hope you'll enjoy our story as we chart our own course thru life and set sail on new adventures... gathering our stories and treasure along the way.

Fair Winds and Following Seas my friends!

The stage is set...

Although in our part of the world it doesn't seem as if summer has truly even started (less than a handful of days have topped out over 72 degrees here... really??), we're heading into our first grade studies here at home!  Today we start with our new schedule (part of which you can see written out on the markerboard) and in a few weeks we'll start our enrichment programs at HomeConnection.  I thought some of you might like to see what our learning room looks like... it's a work in progress!

Just one last shot of the boys playing one of their favorite games... They love the fact that all the different pieces have their own moves or "powers", and I love that they spend a few minutes "unplugged" in the day!

Found you from the WTM boards. Love your room--I like the schedule board, too, because I love organization! :)
