Monday, April 26th, was Lauren's last day as a Kindergarten student at her once a week homeschool group. The above picture is of her classmates and teachers. The lady on the left also teaches Lauren piano lessons. Lauren was so happy to read that the 1st grade students are not required to lay down for naps- she is not a napper and has not been for quite some time now. We will continue to homeschool for the 2010-2011 school year and will take one week off for the months of May, June and July. I remember all too well spending the first 6-9 weeks with my students reviewing what they learned last year and was so disappointed to find that a lot of them forgot their addition and subtraction facts in the lower grades. Hoping this helps Lauren retain what she has learned and it also allows us to have shorter time periods of instruction.
I am a married stay at home mother of one daughter- Lauren. We live in central Arkansas just out of city limits-hence the blog title outer limits. Prior to staying home - I was an educator in both private and public schools and currently home school our daughter. My interests include sewing, reading, old movies and fitness.
