School Days!

 The kiddos were chomping at the bit to get started with the school year. They ADORE our Ambleside Online curriculum and eagerly pored over this year's book list, giving their opinions as to which free reading books we ought to start first, recalling their favorite historical figures from last year, and chanting out their Spanish vocabulary. It is such a joy to teach kids who love to learn!

 You've never seen a more excited Preschooler!
Our four delights.  We are unspeakably blessed.

The Old Stomping Grounds

After years of Jayhawk indoctrination and various excursions to the KU campus in Lawrence,
we finally took the kiddos to the mighty hills of Westwood...
They were appropriately impressed.

What do you think, any future Bruins among them?

Afterwards, we enjoyed legendary Diddy Riese cookies on the beach at Santa Monica.
Hey, whatever it takes to make them dream of UCLA at night!
