All the Extra Curriculars!

October 1, 2018

Happy Fall! We are officially into the season, even though we're still wearing shorts some days, and rainboot others lol. I can't wait for sweater and boot weather! I even went so far as to buy some Fall scented candles, to get me in the "mood". 

 

 

 

We have also officially began our 2018-2019 school year. It's been a rough first few weeks trying to manage everyone's schedules. We began a new curriculum this year for the older 2, and then still need to keep the younger 2 entertained and "enriched". Or as enriched as a 3-year-old and a 6-month-old can be. Most days consist of the older two working on their own for as long as possibe while I'm wrangling the younger two.That means Superwhy and Daniel Tigers Neighborhood are our best friends. However that method resulted in the 3 year old cutting her own curls a few days ago. -_- 

 

You can imagine my joy. 

 

 

But we also finally have all three bigger kids enrolled in after school activities! Its taken me years to find activites that suit each, and that dont cost $300 a week. ( Yes, I did find an Mixed Martial Arts studio who charged just such a fee. Who do I look like, a rockefeller?!) We have the girls in gymnastics and my son joined a recreation league for basketball. They also started taking private cooking/baking lessons a few times a month and we are looking into a photography class too!

 

I also have come across a SLEW of homeschool activites here in South Jersey! When I started homeschooling in 2012, I couldn't find ANYTHING or ANYONE. Now there are activities for everything under the sun. We are so blessed in this area! 

 

So I thought I'd share the love! Below I will post all the activities I've come across. InshaAllah (God willing) you can benefit, and find something your little ones will love to sink their teeth into! If you find any I've missed, comment below or email us at sjmhcoop@gmail.com and I'll add it!

 

Happy September!

 

 

~Homeschoolers Support~

 

- Camden County Homeschoolers

We are a group of homeschooling parents who meet together monthly to be an encouragement to each other, provide helpful insights that we've learned, and just enjoy the company of other like-minded folks who are in the trenches of helping our children become the best they can possibly become. As we grow and become better acquainted we hope to plan local events for our students/families and possibly start a co-op.

 

 

*These amazing ladies meet once a month! Join their FB page to find out dates and location.
