The Students at Spell Academy

This week for the Not-Back-t0-School Blog hop the topic is back to school photos. I thought I’d combine photos with my students’ possible course of study this year since I missed that week of the hop (yes, I’m still working on the details—lol!) And if you are new here---WELCOME! I share homeschool curriculum reviews, early-childhood activities, free printables and more. I even have some giveaways planned for this week,  so you might consider subscribing to this blog to keep up with all the happenings on Spell Outloud.

Our kids are the same age...or some of them. I have a 13 year old daughter, 11.5 year old son, 7 year old daughter, 3 (nearly) year old daughter, and a 9 month old daughter. Too funny!

They are beautiful children. God bless as you start your new school year.

Oh my goodness, you have 6! For some reason I thought you had 4. You are 30% more amazing then I thought!!!!

or maybe it's 50%...never was that great at math.

Have you used Artistic Pursuits before....I'm pondering that one....

I love the way you have your children's pictures with their curriculum, too. That's a great idea. You should be proud of them all - so beautiful!

So glad to find your blog.
I, too, love how you posted pictures of your children along with their curriculum. =)
I saw that 2 of your children are doing Apologia General, and I wanted to share that I have posted videos (that I found online, usually from youtube) to go along with the first module. I'll be posting for each module as we go.
For all the time invested in it, I just want it to be available for anyone who might need it.

I receive nothing for this; I'm pretty sure Apologia knows nothing about it. I just do it for my kids and their friends, and I like to let others know if I think they can use it. =)
