Summer Reading Kick Off Event

Hi everyone!

5 area libraries and BISD are hosting a huge summer reading kick off event Saturday, June 3rd from 10am-1pm at the Birdville Fine Arts/Athletic Center.  The event is free and will have an animal petting zoo, free books for children (while supplies last), a big vehicle exploration zone, a giant slide, an obstacle, plus arts and crafts and more!  For information, you can call 817-427-6818.

Whew! We are done…sort of

Well Friday was our official last day (of full day school anyway) and now our summer begins!

It’s been a crazy week with a choir concert, field day, birthdays, and end of the year scout stuff.  We do light reading and math throughout the summer and indulge in camps and traveling.  Time seems to fly so quickly these days and I think I’ll take a few weeks before I worry about next years plans.  Happy summer to you all!

Not Back To School Day!

Ah, it’s the end of summer and time for our schedule to start up again.  My local homeschool group (Keller Homeschoolers) kicked off the school year with a homeschool party at one of our local splash pads.  I can’t emphasize how great it is to see familiar faces and welcome new ones at gatherings like these.  It’s also a great way to find out about programs, classes, successes, and challenges of things you might be considering.  Oh, and did I mention the food.  I like food and since we all bring something, I’m pretty happy all the way around… 🙂  What are some of your traditions for kicking off school?

Summertime blues

Whew! I swear the summer just started a few weeks ago and I feel like I have looked up only to find it’s time to work out our fall schedule, make sure I have the details about upcoming field trips, and get registered for any classes we might need, and on and on! We do not school year round like some of you brave souls. But our summer is full of camps. This year we participated in a Jr. Lifeguard class, a Girl Scout Camp, and College for Kids at TCC (which is typically 3 weeks of academic classes that she self-selected but doesn’t realize it’s “school”). While we have a few parent/student class meetings to attend a littler earlier than we start, we will be officially kicking off 6th grade August 31st.  Are you guys ready?! I wonder, when you begin a new year what do you do to celebrate?
