Co-op makes life easier

This year we decided to try something new. All of the kids except Macadamia (she has had some health issues and needed a lighter load) are attending an academy program/co-op. It is a Christian based program, run by a group of homeschooling moms. The teachers are moms/dads with expertise in whatever subject they are teaching. You are required to volunteer if you have a child K-6. I volunteer in high school Biology and Spanish 1. Cashew is taking Biology, Pistachio is taking Literature and Physical Science. I am very proud to say that they received "A's" on their first progress report! And these are tough classes! Almond is taking Sing and Sign, and Science. She looks forward to it every week! Peanut attends "preschool" and is learning Zoo Phonics. I am so pleased with how it has worked out for us. The kids are learning, socializing, and getting a break from their siblings (and mom!). This also eliminates the planning of some major subjects and allows me more time to do other things. How cool is that!?!
