We have had a whirlwind of a year.
Everyone has had to change business models, veterinarians have been trying to please clients while not even seeing them face to face, and with people staying home and in quarantine, the people still working are exhausted from picking up the extra shifts.
I’m praying that the fall brings on some normalcy.
Our pumpkin patch is growing like crazy.
The plants are everywhere, but the pumpkins aren’t plentiful yet. We have one large one and that decided to grow early and healthy.
We did lose another small one to the hurricane winds. It got blown off the vine.
Now we are beginning to see some smaller ones coming. I’ve been seeing bees, so our pollinators are busy.
Landry went for a barrel lesson this morning and had a great session. Her young horse is coming along so well with the help and guidance of Sara Rose Waguespak.
She’s an amazing horse person with excellent horsemanship skills that she passes along fluently.
We have settled into a great homeschool routine. Landry is working independently on most things, as 8th graders should be.
Owen is a Senior this year and taking dual-enrollment classes at a small college in Baton Rouge.
He will earn 9 college credit hours this semester, giving him a great leg-up as he prepares for college next year.
They are all 3 online, but with a live teacher at a set time each week. Dual-enrollment classes are inexpensive and count as full college credit hours as well as high school credits.
Most smaller colleges and community colleges have dual-enrollment programs for high school juniors and seniors.
Definitely plan that for your homeschooling high schooler. It allows them to adjust to college classes and seamlessly transition into college.
Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather, the turning leaves, the spice candles, and the colors. I pray your fall is wonderful!
