Thoughts on the last day of 2011

It has been a HIUGE learning year full of self discovery which has prepared me and my children to learn tons of new skills next year.  It feels like we spent this year finding out a lot about our selves which has given us direction or in some cases opened our eyes to many new possibilities.   Things we are considering learning about in 2012:  web design, ballet, more Italian, traveling, public speaking, teaching others, advanced classical guitar, rock climbing, editing, sound engineering, glass blowing, playing the Blues on the piano and more self discovery.  As we settle into a schedule, I’ll post the specific classes we are taking and teaching and other learning adventures that we are pursuing.   Happy New Year and Happy Life Long Learning!!!

  1. Here's what Tessa is doing...


    She has mentors/teachers she sees weekly for Japanese, Italian, guitar, poetry, creative writing group, dog obedience, dog agility, ballet. She swims 3 days a week, joined a math study group once a week, and a book club/writing club that meets once a month. Plus she attends Access (a homeschool enrichment program) in Greeley on Fridays where she takes pottery, book making/poetry, soccer, career exploration. In her spare time she enjoys reading, writing, painting, exercising, and watching movies and documentaries. She is also getting ready to become an Exchange Student in 2013-2014 school year, is learning to drive, is in 4-H and is starting a dog sitting job this month. :)

    She chooses to do all of these things freely (except driving - I'm forcing her to learn to drive). This is proof that at least this teenager is not lazy and will keep herself very busy if given the freedom to choose and the resources and support to follow her interests. Most of the things she does are free or inexpensive - guitar and Italian are our biggest expenses right now.

    I am studying Italian, writing, meditating, and exercising.
