Homeschool Revamp

Well, our homeschool is looking a bit different than before.
We are now full time homeschooling Veronika and Rowan, and starting in the fall will be homeschooling Gavyn as well full time. Willow Mae will spend the mornings doing school with us at home and then go to a special ed preschool in the afternoon.
Ellie and Alina will spend a good bit of the summer working on homeschooling so they do not lose any skills they learned over this school year in public school and then in the fall they will go back to High School.
We will be doing Abeka Homeschool with the DVD program and textbooks. We are so excited to get started! We also work with an amazing lady named Mrs. Brown who has a program called So Happy to Learn and So Happy to Learn at Home, which is designed for children Down syndrome, but also works great for any child! The kids love her program and enjoy all her worksheets, videos, and just every part of her program. She makes learning fun!

Rowan was struggling in kindergarten this year socially and emotionally, so we felt it was best to let him repeat kindergarten. Willow Mae misses the cut off for kindergarten by a week, and Gavyn missed it last year by two weeks, so we will have four kindergarteners come fall.

All six kids are enjoying playing T-ball and Soft Ball on the Miracle League. This is the first time any of them have played t-ball/soft ball before!
We have spent the last few weeks doing a lot of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and it is showing. The kids are becoming more confident in their abilities and we are so proud of them.

Over the next few weeks I will be updating our blog layout, and updating pictures, info, etc. Please check back soon to see all the changes that are being made! 

My camera broke a few weeks ago so I do not have much in the way of pictures to show, but I do have at least a video to share. Enjoy!
