We are just passed our mid-way point, and this year has been so very good. We've explored dinosaur tracks, gone hiking with friends, served in our community, and learned a whole lot along the way.
For the first time in our homeschool journey, I decided to share our goals, progress, and reflections. I started sharing WEEK 1 and WEEKS 2 and 3 on Instagram and then decided to just wait until the end of each term to share on YouTube.
This year, my children are in 2nd, 5th, and 8th grade. For us, each term consists of six weeks. At the beginning of each term, I use my Bucket Planner to record our term goals, write out our lesson plans, and track our progress along the way. At the end of each term, I then work through a reflection form in the planner to take note of what is working, what needs to be changed or added, and what needs to be taken out.
Join me in the videos below for A-L-L the details on the curriculum and resources we enjoyed, loved, and swapped along the way this first half of our school year.

Sure, there were shifts and bumps along the way, but in the end, we have made significant gains in accomplishing our goals and have shared some really special memories.
