2021 Wrap Up

 Since starting this blog, I've never failed (yet) to do a year end wrap up post, but some years recently it has been the only post I've done!  

We continued homeschooling this year because of COVID-19, but it's gone more smoothly this year.  We figured out some things from last year that worked, and some that didn't.  I changed out some curriculum I didn't like.  And we've been able to do field trips!  This fall we spent a few days in Richmond visiting museums, we rode the train up to Washington DC for a few days and visited the Smithsonian museums, and we spent a couple of nights in Wintergreen hanging out with my brother's family and doing some geocaching.  

In 2021, I ran 1013 miles.  I was injured in February and spend a couple of months on the elliptical, and I don't count those miles in my running total. I am glad to break 1000.  

I read 195 books this year.  

Wishing everyone a happy and HEALTHY 2022!

Happy 2022! Congratulations on running 1,000+ miles this year! I always say I'm going to "Map my Walk," and yet, most of the time, I forget to keep track. I've always wanted to homeschool because I feel children learn so much more from experiential learning and field trips. I'm glad you were able to fit in some wonderful learning experiences this year. Best wishes on the year ahead!

Impressive that you were able to get so much running in even though you had an injury for a while. Lots of reading too. Happy to hear that homeschooling got better and the trips sound fun. I always loved going on field trips as a kid.

Here is to an awesome 2022!
