We recently wrapped up our first semester of CHOICE homeschool co-op here in Newburgh. It was a much different experience than our one other homeschool co-op was - both good and bad. The classes are all taught by actual teachers rather than parents, so they actually showed up which was nice. On the other hand, this meant less opportunity for parents to get to know each other than at the more low-key co-op we did two years ago. In any case, it was a good experience and the kids are all signed up for more classes for next semester.

Here is a video of Truman and Penny and the rest of the Boomwhackers class. They are playing the Boomwhackers to a song called "Whacky Ogre." Not exactly Christmasy, but it sounds way better than their attempt at 'Joy to the World.' Tru and Pen are on the far left of the stage.

Lucy took a class about Abraham Lincoln's life. She really learned a lot. Her teacher was fantastic and I made her sign up for another class with that same teacher next semester despite her protests (U.S. Presidents). Here is a picture of her class that was mounted on gator board in the foyer. The class was for "3rd grade and up" which is kind of cool. Lucy was freaked out at first that one of her classmates has a mustache (!) but it ended up being a great thing to have mixed ages. She made a log cabin for her end-of-semester project.

Lucy's in the pink sweater.
