    Greetings from Washington State
    Hey Everyone,

    I知 homeschooling my 9 and 11 year old girls. My wife and I homeschooled our two older kids off-and-on through their junior and high school years, and now they池e both in college (we give our kids a choice to homeschool or go to public school every year).

    We live in the Evergreen State on a little homestead: chickens, goats, and ス acre garden. This year we池e studying Botany, Art, Archaeology, and Yoga. We supplement traditional math books with Jo Boaler痴 work and computer programming, and integrate English into everything we do.

    One of the things we studied this week is Brassicaceae(cabbage) family. This month we have been working with plant morphology and utilizing dichotomous keys. While identifying different plants and dissecting their flowers, my girls made little fairies with the flower parts.

    I知 looking forward to connecting with others, gaining new ideas and different perspectives, and further developing our learning.

    Welcome. Would love to hear more about the Jo Boaler math. We are always on the look out for new math to implement as a supplement to our main math (Beast Acadamy), and we are based in NZ where there are not many homeschooling materials available and shipping is expensive, so if it is online, great!

    Archeology sounds like something my oldest would like. She just finished off an Ancient Egypt unit study and is now starting Greece (we are going to do ancient through to modern).
