We signed up for a CSA this summer. In theory, it was a great idea. Supporting local agriculture and all. Turns out, not so much. Maybe it is the particular farm we are working with but it has been a pretty big bust. It is so unfortunate because we researched our options well.
These beauties are from the local farmer's market. We paid so much for this CSA and still buy all of our produce from the market on Saturday mornings.
The house has been quiet this week. Very quiet. I miss Ephraim.
He seems to enjoy school. It is only the first week and I question the work he brings home. He wrote his name wrong. Very wrong. ERRRPHRE Ephraim has been able to write his name since he was three and a half.
After I got to the bottom of it, I realized it's because his school emphasizes on phonetics. I understand the benefits of phonetics, but believe they have their time and place. The English language doesn't really work that way. If so, his name would be EFRUM. And never in his name do you put extra emphasis on the R.
I know it's the first week of school, but I'm afraid he's going to regress. I felt as though I sent him off into the world with a good set of skills, even reading, with just the education of homeschooling. I'm hoping this will be the right choice for us...
