Carbondale celebrates an eclipse, if clouds don’t spoil it
Chicago Sun-Times article (I was interviewed by this reporter yesterday)
Our first day of the homeschool co-op is August 28th. I've been purchasing school supplies (plan books, main lesson books, colored pencils, gratitude journals, creative writing journals, art portfolios, fountain pens) and curriculum materials (Montessori R&D's Word Study Materials, Hello Wood's Teaching Clock, and the Grammar Game by Mandala Classroom Resources).
We also continue to be blessed by donations of art supplies from my good friend Leslie. She has assured me that her art room is now perfectly clean and organized and she loves it this way; I am just amazed at her generosity!
