A lot of times homeschooling moms tend to leave out the fun stuff so the list can get checked off. I know that I have been guilty of this many times. Even though I have a deep love of art and really love being creative, I usually will opt to get their math homework done if we have only a few minutes left in the day before we go somewhere - rather than water color. Let's face it. Art is sometimes messy and inconvenient, isn't it? It requires a lot of free time and prep work to do it right. I get tired of doing the same little craft-ish stuff that we've done before and wanted some new ideas.
Enter GeeArt. They emailed me one day and I had to check them out. This seemed too good to be true. We did a sample lesson and were sold. I joined up and we are about to embark on a fun art journey from now until the cows come home! I plan to bring you a post about our fun creative stuff each week or every other week. I hope you will check back in and visit to see the things we are learning and creating! Now, of course, I'll still throw in crafts and art lessons from other places as we have time... but now that my kids will be SURE to have a little art in their week from GeeArt, I won't feel so guilty if we only do 2 art projects per unit study.
** GEEART has offered generously to give 10% off to anyone who clicks over to their site from my site for their homeschool edition of the program! How cool is that??? Tell'em Sprittibee sentcha by entering "sprittibee" as the promo code! **As for a personal update... everyone in our house is a zombie today after a party last night, my son sleeping over at his buddy's house, my daughter sleeping with my husband and I in our King bed (something happened to my back and his neck - both of us need Motrin and a heating pad!), and I'm still in my pajamas. Looks like Saturday school will not be in session today. I fancy that I'll use the rest of the day to catch up on grading and maybe take a tour around GeeArt and get registered.
Have a super weekend, y'all!
