Yarn Along: School & Sweater

I'm working steadily on a yoked sweater for my daughter. It's so nice to do stockinette in the round right now. The knitting is so ordered when everything else is still a little crazy!

I'm planning our Pre-K year right now and am really excited about it. We are starting the day after Labor Day and I should be able to get the basics ready by then. I am using my usual Montessori curriculum as well as the book Twenty Six Letters to Heaven. It's a Catholic alphabet path that incorporates saints and virtues in with normal subjects. The activities are great and low prep, I think we are going to love it!

I also want to add some catechesis of the good shepherd materials but I have to make them first. That will be an ongoing project. Time to get out those glue gun/sculpey/wood painting skills and give it all I've got!

I have had a great summer but I'm looking forward to the more regular routine of school days. The kids and I all thrive under routine!

I will be sharing this on Small Things and Frontier Dreams.
