Gearing up for a new school year....

We are "year round" homeschoolers....however, Summer months we are much lighter.  After Labor Day (much later than a lot of Homschoolers) we start our new school year!  Grade 2/3 blend for Zachary and Kindergarten for Molly!   I am excited and I know they are looking forward to new and exciting things!  In keeping with tradition, we always go to Chuck E Cheese the 1st week when the public schools are back in school...then we will hit the Bronx Zoo soon after that, before the field trips from Public schools start up...with the cooler weather coming...more park field trips are in store also!
Sharing some of our favorite moments from the 2010/11 school year...love to look back....

Hurricane Irene and Camping Trip

We were only able to get 1 night out of our camping trip. Decided to come home early due to Irene coming our way. Unfortunately, I also ended up in Urgent care on the way home from camping due to the feel of a fever coming on and real dizzy.  Turns out I have strep also...YUK!  We in in the NYC area and Irene is coming full force in the next few hours...here are a few pics from our 1 night of camping...











Brought a cute lapbook on Camping that I found over at Homeschool Creations
