Letter to a Hermit Crab & Starting School

If you have youngsters in your house who beg for pets, especially little boys, you might enjoy this letter sent to a newly acquired hermit crab.

If you are getting ready to start your (home) schooling year, there are quite a few bloggers posting about how they have or haven’t gotten ready, their ideas for this year, and their curriculum run-down. Here is one that I liked on homeschoolcoach’s blog. It talks about how while she isn’t uber-organized, she did manage to put a picture of each kid in their own student planner which will probably gain her some squeals of excitement from the kids. Another thing I noted was her goal this year – getting back to the basics. Spending time talking to her older kids and engaging more with her younger kids. As she points out, that is an achievable goal (although maybe not as much as she would like every single day).

We still have another month before we “officially” start our homeschool journey this year. Learning occurs each day, just maybe not using a book or with a pencil & pen in hand sitting at a desk.

For those of you starting (for the first time or again), bon courage! And try to have a good time! If you are having fun, chances are the kids are too.

  1. We homeschool year long and take a break one week out of every month. We find the focus MUCH better without the three month break. We end the year in May/June and pick right up after a week off.
