Greg and I have not yet decided about Adam's enrollment in public school for 1st Grade.
We'll still be rocking the k12. That's http://www.k12.com/ in case you wanna know. ALL of the kids will be working hard this summer. Which means *I* have to get organized. I am laying out the summer lesson plan groundwork now, so I can hit the ground running. Between vacations, my photography stuff and life in general, I want to stay organized this year! I am constantly a work in progress....
How will I be compelling them to WANT to study?
I'll be bribing them, of course. With money AND field trips!
Some of our planned excursions include:
Smithsonian National Zoo (they are ALWAYS begging to go to the Zoo)
Kleeberg Delco $2 (cheap movies)
Route 11 Potato Chips (a tour of how they make potato chips)
Fleetwood RV (to see how pop-ups are made)
United States Capital Building (they'll love this one!!)
I just have to get organized. Give them a head-start on 1st and 3rd grade respectively. This will be challenging, since Adam is perfectly capable at a 3rd grade level. I want him in the PALS program if he returns to public school. If he can't get in, we might end up homeschooling for 08-09 academic year. We'll see......

My kids aren't THAT smart. But I think they are pretty bright. Adam will be leaning heavily upon Math and Science, while Micaela will be firming up her writing and Math. Jonathan will be doing Basic Survival Skills.
