End of the Year Homeschool Wrap-Up (2017-2018)

I’m so excited to share everything we have accomplished during this school year. During this year we endured the loss of two awesome grandfathers and dealt with severe sickness but God strengthened us through it all. We learned how to love each other through grief, support one another in trying new things, and cater to those that are sick and shut-in. It has been a school year like none other and I’m so glad I have my wonderful husband and The Cool Kids to share this homeschool experience with.


Here are a few things we’ve done recently:

  • Spent the weekend on the Kemah Boardwalk (vlog coming soon)
  • Participated in several local sports camps
  • Bear did a phenomenal job in swim lessons and was invited to participate on a team
  • Bam Bam was able to participate in swim lessons and had so much fun
  • Princess perfected potty training
  • I started reading books again
  • Husband’s team soared to number one in the company and has remained there
  • All The Cool Kids did exceptional well on their assessments leaving me with a 5th, Kindergartener, and Preschooler for next year
  • Bam Bam gave a speech at the holiday luncheon
  • Princess grew, and grew, and grew
  • We had art appreciation month (vlog coming soon)
  • Bear built a few robots and that has peaked his interest in robotics
  • We finished My Father’s World Exploring Countries and Cultures


To see more of what we have had going on be sure to watch this recent YouTube video.


We had a fantastic year and I am already planning for our rest month as well as the next academic year. Be sure to follow the blog for updates on our education journey and you can see everything we’ve been doing on our homeschool Instagram, @TeamKempAcademy.


Make this week awesome,

September was a good month for Team KEMP Academy as we all learned our new normal and took school one day at a time.  This month’s accomplishments include:

  • Bear completing two science projects
  • Bam Bam doing great in speech
  • Princess learning shapes and recognizing them throughout the house or while we are out
  • I lesson planned for the entire month and two weeks into October.  WHOOP WHOOP ! Take that procrastination <sticks out tongue>
  • Bear read five chapter books, most within one weekend and one within two hours.  He enjoys reading and even helped write a recent review.
  • Bam Bam confirmed his left hand status and has been writing up a storm.
  • Princess got a new kitchen for her birthday and keeps the family full on delicious plastic and imaginary cuisine.
  • We’ve been having family fifteen minute workouts or stretching time to start our day.  It has been so much fun and really helps us all wake up.
  • I reinstated Friday Fun Day which consists of a science project or messy art and lunch in the living room while we watch a movie.  We’ve been enjoying the Torchlighters series via our Amazon Prime membership.
  • HOOPLA has been a blessing and we recommend listening to the audio books while riding in the car. You can learn more about how we use HOOPLA via this awesome hyperlink.
  • I have been keeping up with my Bible in 90 Days reading plan via YouVersion.  Next time I definitely want to do a chronological reading plan.
  • Our local library had ninja story time.  IT WAS AWESOME!! Ninjas and books go great together.

As always, be sure to check back to the blog weekly for awesome reads to help get you through the week.  I have a few homeschool giveaways coming soon so make sure you are subscribed to my blog and YouTube channel for those announcements.
