We started back to school again this week! 4 Oaks Academy is now in session!
It was a smooooooth transition, thank goodness. We are pretty established in our roles and routines by now, being it is our 5th year of doing it. Time FLIES when you are having fun. :)
My time hop today was of our finished classroom in our Kansas house back in the olden days. Awww!
We may not have an actual CLASSROOM anymore, but we still get the job done and maybe even in a more efficient simple way too. :)
Let me show you around where we do school when we are at our home base, and in the new RV too!
Dale takes a strong lead with school when I am busy with doTERRA, but our favorite is all together as a family. We start the day with Bible and History, then split off for the other subjects.
We are on our 5th year of My Father's World curriculum family cycle, because we LOVE the one room schoolhouse approach to learning, instead of 8 separate subjects for 4 kids. This allows us to school 4 days and week and be done soon after lunch, most days. Leaving Friday for Family Fun Day or a field trip if we are on the road.
This curriculum is SO scripture and literature rich, and I adore it! It gets us in the Word, and it gets us hiding it away in our hearts each day.
Destiny is in the high school program and now works independently upstairs as of this year. We meet every Friday to discuss what she got done and test or grade her work etc. She says she misses together time, but loves that she can be independent too.
She has been a little under the weather, so she is laying low while she does school today.
When we are home, our school books all live down here, under the folding table in the laundry room.
When we go back into the RV for our fall & winter run, all the books will fit nicely in these 4 cabinets. We have a LOT more curriculum to make fit this year! Thank goodness for lots of space to use in our new RV!
We have a Sophomore, 6th grader, 4th grader and 2nd grader! So exciting!
Check out these side by sides of our kids when we started homeschooling 5 years ago, and them now. They sure are growing up!
It is going to be a GREAT year with these goofballs and I am so excited! :)
Hope your school year is off to a GREAT start!
