enrichment program
Today we went to "meet the teacher" day at the school that is dedicated to providing enrichment programs to homeschoolers in our school district. They offer a variety of options - providing classes for homeschooled children grades K-8 from 1 - 3 days/week.

We signed Colin up to attend one day/week. We met his teacher today, and looked in the rooms where he'll spend most of his day, and also the rooms for computers, music, PE and lunch. Kids are able to buy hot lunches, or bring lunch from home.

For K, the kids stay with the same teacher throughout the day and she presents different themes. The first theme will be about the 5 senses.

One of the reasons we did this was to allay some of Bo's fears about homeschooling. It allows Colin to be familiar with a traditional school setting, while still allowing me to homeschool him the majority of our time.

Since classes start next week, we have decided to begin our "official" curriculum next week as well. We have a bunch of new school supplies and both boys are eager to start.

Colin will start private piano lessons soon (date has yet to be determined -- need to talk with the teacher some more.) Nate will start karate lessons as soon as I register him. Both are pretty much dedicated to homeschooling families, which is nice.

About Us
I'm a homeschooling mom with 3 wonderful kids! My boys are 6 & 7 and working at a 1st and 2nd/3rd grade level. We use Catholic Heritage Curriculum loosely, with lots of our own ideas added in. My boys attend an enrichment program one day per week during the traditional school year, which gives me extra time with my toddler daughter, and the chance to run some errands without my active boys.

This blog was a running list of what we do each school-day, but I tend to post here sporadically now. We usually school on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday to take DH's days off into account.
