Normally the kids have their piano recital at USFs school of music. They sit on stage and play on a beautiful grande piano. This year we did zoom recitals. Amanda, their piano teacher came by a few days early to give Natalie her 5 year award. It was a sad moment when Kobe ran out of the house to greet […]

We added robotics to our home school schedule this year. Kobe is having such a great time and literally rushes through his mornings with anticipation of getting to class. The teacher calls herself a “boy teacher” and brings much excitement and hands on learning. The focus is on building Lego models with working motors and sensors and then using software […]

Our friends shared in the struggles their […]
The media teacher at Nat’s school is always finding the greatest ways to get kids excited about reading. This past week Nat participated in the Magic Tree House Bowl. The 3rd graders […]
Anyone who reads my blog knows about the many transitions and adjustments we have had to make concerning Tres education. His elementary school years were wonderful. Middle school was great. […]
