i'm not great at explaining the hows of homeschooling or exactly what it is we do all day. but olivia's journal does a pretty good job of *showing* you. i find it fascinating to page through. it isn't divided by subject and includes everything from her daily to-do lists to field trip reports to recipes she's tried, sketches of important historical figures, notes on a research topic of her choice, spelling lists of words that are relevant to her, memory work (scripture mastery), and so on. right now she's working on an on-going collaboration with her grandparents: they write down stories from their personal history and she edits and publishes them into books (see second photo).
asher has a journal too. but at this age he's not that into it.
do you journal at all? i suppose ye old blog is sort of my version. there's something to be said for good old-fashioned pencil, paper, and tape though.
