The School Year Wrap-Up! May 25, 2022

Filed under: Family Time,Homeschool Adventures,Parenthood — Amy Scott @ 2:10 pm

We’ve spent the last week wrapping up our school year. The boys completed their 36 week curriculums on Thursday. It’s always a celebration to finish the school books. To mark the occasion, we had Dominos pizza for dinner and I baked cinnamon rolls and brownies as a special dessert for each kid. It was a quiet close to the school year, but still very much a celebration.

We’ve made the decision to homeschool again next year. We are enjoying the homeschool process. The kids are enthusiastic about it and we have good momentum. We were a part of a co-op for the last 7 weeks of school and we all appreciated this learning environment. The co-op is hoping to continue next year and we are looking forward to being a part of it again. Adding a social/classroom environment was a positive enhancement to our homeschool experience.

At the end of 2nd grade, Owen was required by our state (Washington) to do an end-of-the-year assessment. There are multiple options depending on the student. We opted for the California Achievement Test. We used an online, untimed version which was super convenient. I was a little nervous about what to expect since this was our first time. It went surprisingly well and it was quite the celebration to complete it this morning. It was the last thing to finish for this school year. We are now 100% done!

We are taking an extra long Memorial Day weekend before starting our summer workbooks in June. Reading and books will continue to be a focus over the summer. We’ll visit the library to participate in their summer reading program. We also hope to visit some historical sites for educational outings. We’re trying to sneak in some learning with the summer fun. It’s been a great school year, but a change of pace will be nice. Bring on summer mode!

New books arrived last week and it took Owen no time to fly through them. I have so many holds at the library as I try to keep him stocked with reading material.

Jeremy’s garden update! He filled in the area around the raised beds with a concrete pathway and gravel. Looks so tidy!
A soccer birthday party for two of the cousins. The boys enjoyed playing a family game of soccer together. Owen even scored a goal!
Papa sent me this picture. Apparently Graham requested to have his picture taken. Silly kid!
