School Update 1/7/13

Wow, we have been out of "school" way too long.  I think it's been about a month.  Somehow right after Thanksgiving we just never got back to it.  Before I looked up it was the holidays.  Whew, it's crazy jumping back in!  Trying to get back into the groove seems to be hard for both me and the kids.  As soon as we hit the table we dove right back in.  Today was refresher day especially for Precious who is in Algebra 2.  They have all be reading and writing during our no school days so that was good.  Everybody finished three math lessons a piece today and all of their other studies.  I think it was a good day overall.  We even got an experiment started.  We are doing the naked egg experiment.  I didn't have  any regular vinegar so we ended up using apple cider vinegar instead.  Everybody made a hypothesis, even Daddy, to see what the egg would look like tomorrow.  So stay tuned to see what happens next.  We are discussing food and where we get ours from and reducing our carbon imprint and homesteading.   On netflix we have watched and discussed a lot of shows on the subject.  Today we watched No Impact Man.

It was a very good documentary.  I really enjoyed it and so did all of the kids.  We discussed what little things we could do to reduce our own impact.  The kids really like eating local.  We already get milk, eggs, and a lot of our vegetables locally.  The kids decided that we would pick a new habit once per month and see if it is something we can stick with and they will do a project to see what the impact could possibly be. What is one thing you could do to increase your impact?  

More news on the Hill front is that.  PJ got braces!  He is super excited about it and you can already see a difference in his smile.  Until next time.  Have a great one!
