May and June Titles // 2017

I skipped May's book post because it was so short! We've had a whirlwind 6 weeks, traveling, wrapping up school, prepping our home for guests, our next trip, and trying to see friends now that we're on summer break. May felt very full and I only got two (short!) books read, so it felt underwhelming to post here. June has been quite full, too, but I've gotten a bit more on track in June.

* The Classical Unschooler by Purva Brown - This short snippet is a homeschooler's manifesto on how both unschooling and classical education -seemingly opposite-can mix together to create a rich environment for children's learning at home.

Lukka's 10th Birthday Interview

Lukka is now in the double-digits! He's been around for a true decade and he's been hamming it up ever since. He loves being around people, animals, and any and all junk food and candy. He's insatiable with play and friends, could care less about hiking (but has a good time once he's out there), relates to Calvin in nearly every aspect, and loves that the family dog sleeps in his room every night. We love you, Lukka, and we're so proud of you!
