As we do our informal tot school over the summer, I’ve been looking for different ways to get Squeaker engaged. It’s not something that I want to force with her because I want her to enjoy the summer. We’ve been spending a bit of time outside, but only when it’s not too humid or hot. […]

As we take our first dip into homeschooling, informal as it is, here's how I'm planning our year of tot school.
