Summer Break!!!

(Official disclosure--see below for details!)

K5 Learning has an online reading and math program for kindergarten to grade 5 students.  I've been given a 6 week free trial to test and write a review of their program.  If you are a blogger, you may want to check out their  open invitation to write an online learning review of their program. - See more at: http://www.k5learning.com/review-k5#sthash.lGQt2bHt.dpuf


Ahhhhhhh!!!  Summer break...

Eli's year-end picnic!


Oh, how we LOVE our summer break!  These guys are so, so happy right now, and so is their mama!

For the past 3 years, we've been blessed with a trip to Disney (thanks to Make A Wish), and two consecutive trips to the beach, all to kick start our summer breaks.  While the beach is not on our to-do list this year (unfortunately and with heavy sighs and some kicking and screaming on my part), we do have some amazing plans for our summer.

One of those plans is K5Learning.  Now, we all know that my little one is not thinking too highly of any type of educational endeavor.  However, as his mama, I have to do what I can to help him maintain those skills he has worked so hard to achieve.  

Right??

Well, just as I was contemplating ESY via our school system, K5Learning offered me a free trial for the summer!  Perfect!

So...

I look forward to sharing how this works out for us, for children on the Autism spectrum.



Happy Summer~
