First Days of Ryan’s Homeschool Co-op

The journey has begun! Ryan embarked a few days ago on his new adventure of “real school.” He has been homeschooling, as most homeschoolers do, soon after God brought him into this world and already at his ripe old age of 5 1/2, he is fairly proficient at reading simple words. This is thanks in part to some hard work over the past year  having recently completed the “Hooked on Phonics” Kindergarten levels 1 and 2 (along with his 4 year old sister Kaitlyn).

The big change came as Ryan started a Homeschooling Co-Op where he goes twice a week with eight other kids at “Gloria Deo Academy.” The co-op uses the “classical method” of learning with lots of early memorization, making it a pretty rigorous work load.  The rest of the week he is still homeschooling away with his brothers and sister. Getting a head start on his memory work, Ryan has already mastered Psalm 1:1-6 over the past few weeks

[box] Psalm 1:1-6 (New International Version)1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers. 4 Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.[/box]

Below are a few pictures and a video of the last few days for you to enjoy:

Ryan’s new found interest is math as he loves numbers. Of course, treasure map drawing is still number one in his book! :p
