Legacy Co-Op Finale

This year we have had the privilege to be part of a Homeschool Co-Op called Legacy. We meet for 8 weeks in the Fall and 8 weeks in the Spring. It has been such a blessing! The kids LOVE it and look so forward to going on Friday mornings and I have been blessed by the sweet ladies I've met and the wonderful encouraging atmosphere! Many of these ladies have been homeschooling for a long time compared to me (one year into it) and there is a lot to be said for people who have walked in your shoes. This year has been hard but very rewarding and a learning and growing experience for me and the kids. The way the co-op is set up we all co-teach a class for one hour and the second hour is a time of fellowship, prayer, and encouragement. I have LOVED it.

One of Harrison's classes that he took was Human Body. He LOVED it. They trace their bodies the first week and as they learned about each organ, they filled in all the parts. He loved telling me all the fun, interesting facts he was learning. The other class he took was All about Animals. They studied all the continents and the specific animals that live there. He definitely LOVES science and is attracted to those subjects.

Jackson was ALL about the snacks, as usual!


Jackson was showing me his Caterpillar and we loved seeing all the things he made in his preschool classes.

It was fun to have daddy, Mimi, & Papa to join us too! :)

Beth I'm so glad you have been so blessed and rewarded this first year of home schooling. What a blessing to have such a great group to be a part of. Harrison looks like he is having a ball! And I love the pics of Addison at Harrison's baseball game - what a cutie!
