Homeschool Adventures: August

We have had a wild and crazy first month of homeschool!  I have been homeschooling J for two years; but this is my first year to teach two kids at once, plus have a one-year-old!  J is in second grade and is making big strides in math and reading.  S just started Kindergarten!   He is learning to read and feeling a huge sense of accomplishment at sounding out words.  G is running around, getting into everything!  I am definitely still finding my way as a homeschooling mom, but God is really teaching me a lot.  August was both fun and difficult.  I thought I would post some pictures of our adventures.  I have a feeling this year is going to be pretty eventful!

Our adoption process is still continuing, and our t-shirt fundraiser is currently up and running.  Please be sure to check it out and purchase one at https://www.bonfirefunds.com/lynches-love-adoption.

J and S went to a Lego robotics class.  S made a caterpillar that really inched!  J made a venus fly trap which would close on your finger!

A giant spider made its home on our porch!  We studied it and drew pictures of the spider and its web.
