This week we are back on Whidbey Island.  
The weather is beautiful.  We are surrounded by the  ocean, the sand, the deer, the mountains... sigh.  

We are studying dinosaurs.  There are so many great free resources on Netflix and Youtube.  We spend a few hours in the morning doing "school" then every afternoon on the beach.  Although there have never been any dinosaur fossils found in Washington state, we are still searching for dinosaur tracks and fossils.  A child's mind and creativity are endless given the right surroundings and freedom to play.

Just Trying to keep up

We've done so much since August.  I just can't seem to find the time to blog regularly.  School is fantastic.  We are in such a good rhythm! Plus we have just the right amount extra curricular activities too.  I love what I do!!!

Happy 5th Birthday Zachary!

He woke me up at 6am with snuggles and funny stories.  He greets me this way every morning. He is such an amazing delight!

2013-2014 Week 4

The Price Family Home School and Resort is rolling right along.  We just finished week 4.  The theme was dinosaurs based on the first discovery of dinosaurs in America in 1856.  It was a good week. We are definitely in a groove.  We switch off guided and independent learning.  Then we do a Five In A Row family lesson/activity...History/SS, Science, Art, Math, Field Trip. Here are a few highlights. Dino Sculptures are still in progress. Nathan wrote a time travel dinosaur story.
