We started a Homeschool Co-Op in Shelbyville!  For those of you who do not know what a co-op is:  It is where families share their academic goals and morals.  Parents gather together to share their special skills with one another and the children; each of these skills makes its way into the curriculum to benefit the academic life skills program for the students.  Each parent participates by teaching a class, or volunteering as an aide, or nursery "babysitter" for those parents who have babies.

Key Lime Pie and Kotten Kandy were REALLY excited to "start school" on Monday.  (Our co-op is every Monday for three months, each semester.)   The girls (including their best friend, Applesauce) are taking four classes:  Science, Show Choir, Government and Literature.  They were pretty excited about all their classes.

I am also teaching three classes:  General Music, Show Choir and Recorders.  I volunteer the last hour in the Literature class (because I want to read the same books the girls are reading and because my best friend, Amy, is teaching the class!)

I'll write more about the classes at a later date....  But I wanted to let you see the girls' new outfits.  (They each purchased their clothes themselves - to celebrate the first day of our Shelbyville Co-Op!)
