School has been under way since the end of July and the kids are anxious to have their first off track time in a week. In this first 6 weeks of school, E has memorized all 50 states, their capitals and postal abbreviations. T has finished one book report and is working diligently on her math facts. M is learning about the sounds that letters make and loves telling me all the new things she's learning or getting to do. H has started his school, too.
