Everyone Loves History

It seems I have neglected to discuss much about our homeschooling on my blog. I had to count up my years of homeschooling for something last week and was astonished to discover I have been homeschooling for going on 14 years! Wow! That's a long time!
We love Sonlight Curriculum. No boring textbooks. No busy work. No bland workbook pages. Loads of wonderful literature. We are finishing up the second year of American History.

Now, when we do math or science or spelling or Latin, we are sitting in the kitchen at the table. But reading, whether the girls are reading their books on their own or I am reading the history, we are in the living room snuggling under blankets on the sofas. Oddly enough, the animals tend to gather with us and appear to listen as well.

Libby was listening to the read-aloud in quite the un-ladylike pose. She usually is snuggled up next to Brooke during the readings.

Stewart was enjoying the book and wondered why we stopped reading to snap silly pictures. He loves to snuggle with Morgan.

Abrial doesn't snuggle. And no soft sofas for her. She prefers to stay alert and pay close attention, so as not to miss any important information.

Delilah, I'm disappointed in you. Are you dozing off during history reading? You'll be sorry when Mama gives a pop quiz!

We LOVE our SL books.....

Strange when you wake up and relize you've been homeschooling as long or longer than the experts isn't it? I'm just still to busy schooling to lecture and write about it. LOL

It's funny that even your animals like to join you for read alouds (LOL).

We're using TOG and love it for many of the same reasons we loved SL and used it for so many years.
