School is here!

We officially are back at Lewis Homeschool today after taking a summer break. Last night we unofficially started by watching the Discovery Channel's Blue Planet: Living Seas. My 9 and 10 year old girls loved the show and even took notes. We are starting the year off with a study of God's creation and even though we won't hit Day 5 of Creation until next week I didn't want to pass up having the kids see the fantastic images that were captured. Evolution gobbledegook was, of course, present but not overwhelming. Now I have to decide if I want to wake the kids up at 4am tomorrow and have them witness the eclipse. I'm not sure that they will get much out of the experience at that time of day.

Did y'all get up and watch the eclipse?? I overslept this morning!!! It was best seen here at 5:52 am. That's not too early at all but I MISSED IT!! :(

Alas, no we did not get up to see it. When I ran the suggestion by my husband he pointed out that just trying to get the kids awake at that hour would be a monumental task let alone getting them to intake into their brains what they were seeing. I'm hoping for the next one to be more family friendly in it's timing. LOL!
