For our home school journey we are going to keep an online journal of what we're doing.  Today in class we made journals.  We journaled about what we want to be when we grow up!  Trouble wants to be a builder so he can build his own house.  Dynomite wants to be a princess so she can be pretty and fancy.  Backpack wants to be a movie watcher.  He has high aspirations!  We learned about proper and common nouns.  This year we are also studying Medieval history and Earth science.

Launching Rockets at School

Travis went to Trouble's school this morning to launch rockets. Trouble attends a Classical Academy on Tuesdays and Thursdays. His class just finished a science unit in rocketry and wanted to end it with a bang!

Travis has been launching model rockets for three years now, just for fun. He's launched them for lessons at schools in North Dakota, at our home in Ohio, and for his job here in California. He was happy for the opportunity to be apart of Trouble's school.

Here is the report that was on this evenings news:

Trouble will be attending an Academy of Classical Education this year. He will attend school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On these days he will learn history, science, writing, and practical math. For 2011-2012, the focus is on Physics and Ancient history.

At home, our curriculum focuses on writing, vocabulary, reading, math and P.E. We will also be incorporating Spanish, scripture study and memorization, crafts, and music.
