School’s out for summer! Well, our homeschool is kicking into summer mode since we go year round, but the hybrid school Suzanne and I run has officially wrapped for summer. Graduation is Saturday, and I am looking forward to a glorious month of no teaching before I hop back into my summer chemistry class in June.
WHAT’S HAPPENING AT HOME/SCHOOL/LIFE
in the store: Our Year One and Year Two curricula are on sale now, and you can get a nice deal if you preorder them! (I expect to keep the digital editions all year, but the print editions will have a limited run again.)
on the podcast: Suzanne and I are talking about why we decided to add “run a hybrid school” to our to-do lists.
on patreon: Weigh in on what you’d like us to cover in our series on academic homeschooling through high school.
on instagram: Project season!
LINKS I LIKED
This piece about neighborhood Facebook groups is funny because it’s true. (We literally have a guy in our neighborhood group who prefaces almost every post with “I don’t want to be that guy, but”— and it makes me laugh out loud every time.
Similarly: Private Facebook groups can be surprisingly wonderful spaces, in a totally non-ironic way.
This was just … wow: “I can endure about five minutes more of this. Nothing of any value has been said by either party on any subject.”
THINGS I DIDN’T KNOW BUT NOW I DO
I am surprisingly good at guessing what Teddy Roosevelt would say.
The world of Los Angeles parking tickets is not simple.
BOOKS ADDED TO MY TBR LIST THIS WEEK
Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee (because it's so wild to think of what Harper Lee's In Cold Blood would read like)
Stony the Road (because I can’t stop reading about Reconstruction)
No Walls and the Recurring Dream: A Memoir (because I grew up on Ani!)
