Welcome to the Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2012

Hello, friends!
Thanks for dropping by Electric City Academy!

I'm so excited to be a part of 5 Minutes for Mom's Ultimate Blog Party 2012!

Here at Electric City Academy, I chronicle our adventures in homeschooling.

We've been homeschooling our two children (ages 5 and 7) for 3 years. This is the first year I'm blogging publicly about our experiences!

I love to share about history tidbits, science experiments, writing practice ideas, and much more.

And for those of you who are interested, I'm also going to begin posting thematic theme units for Pre-K. I have everything we used, every idea I gathered, just tucked away -- why not share it!? That is one of my projects for the coming summer.

I'm also going to try my hand at writing my own literature-based mini-curriculum for my children to do this summer. I began to get discouraged after not finding exactly what I was looking for at a reasonable price -- so I'm hoping to compile our own. We'll see how it goes!

I feel called to and absolutely love what I do, and I hope you'll join us for the journey. A big part of homeschooling is community -- and this blog helps me stretch our boundaries a little bit further!

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope to see you again soon!

Hope all of you had a very special, meaningful, and happy Easter!

We're relaxed and rejuvenated after our spring break last week -- ready to head towards the last few weeks of the school year!
