Our school year started July 1. We have already logged 386 hours. So far, we have hours in PE (shooting sports, consisting of archery and .22 and later she will add in her hours spent on team volleyball when that begins.); language arts (this semester is mythology); US history (colonial America for this quarter); math; science (Oceanography); Reading (Classics in Literature); American Sign Language; and Lifeskills (this past month she has been learning to dehydrate and can foods).
This evening the twins helped me and we got some crab apples picked. Normally my green ones are the size of a golf ball, but this year, about half are the size of a normal sized apple. I have them cooking down now, and tomorrow will either turn them into apple jelly or apple syrup.
My red crab apples are not quite ready to pick. They are much smaller and usually a lot tarter.
