It has taken us some time, but we are slowly making our way through Greek Mythology. We have studied most of the Olympians and have even drawn our own maps of the Underworld. We are making our way towards heroes and monsters, where we will even create our own mythical monsters. It's been a lot of fun, but it is certainly taking longer than I had anticipated. Granted, some of it is my own fault seeing that both The Monk and I have been answering the siren calls of warmer weather and sunshine, so we've been spending a lot more time outside than we probably should. But we need to get back on track and try NOT to get distracted by the blue skies and singing birds...at least for now. Soon, we'll just pack our stuff up and head for the park and do our reading, writing, and math while laying on the grass. However, right now, like it or not, days are still a bit cool. Plus, we need to wrap this up so that we can continue to examine Hero's Journey through one of The Monk's favorite characters of all time...Luke Skywalker.
How it all started...
I was a public school teacher for 6 years in a very urban middle school for both 7th and 8th grade. As the red-tape got thicker and teaching became more of a business rather than a place to prepare young minds to enter into the world, I decided that if I was going to work that hard to give an education to someone, it should be my own son. So, my adventures in homeschooling has begun.
