**Homeschool is Cool!**

School started at the Geary's August the 2nd. Pictures were not taken until a week later...we don't dress up for school, so when we go out, that is when the camera starts rolling!

I have done some major planning this year, and the kids love it. We are using a color-coded folder system. The latest homeschool trend is work boxes, so I used the folder system instead.

Each child has five different color folders for each subject. On a piece of paper I write what they must complete for M-F. I have a box at the end of each task that they check off. They love it and the day flies by. It also gives more time to bible reading, music, flash cards, you name it!

We are also notebooking. We write notes, then we have pages printed out for NEAT writing. They are doing well with this too.

Caleb has started Kindergarten. He thought that he had to learn to read the first day of school. He puts his hand to his head, and says, "Lord, give me strength." I then told him that Kindergarten is easy. Well, we went through the days lesson and now he tells everyone that school is so easy ;-P

I linked my post to "Not Back to School Blog Hop". I have met several nice homeschooling families....There are more of us than I realized! Be sure to check HERE to view School Photos of many others on the Blog Hop.
