We are currently in our fourth year of homeschooling Miss Abigail. We have worked our way through Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st grade, and now 2nd!

Well we did it! Abigail has started her second grade school year! And, for the first time in the history of Spena School, we have officially started in August. It’s all Finn’s fault 😉 Typically, we go on a family beach vacation to Destin over Labor Day and start school when we get back. Welll, […]

Well folks. We did it! We successfully completed our second year of homeschooling! I can’t begin to express how happy I am with how this year went.
