My kids have finished 1st, 3rd, 6th, 6th and 9th grades!

 Can you tell what’s in the lower left of the above photo?
A frog.
Here’s the story.
Ryan had to dissect a frog for his biology lab.  Ryan caught a big one and Luke (the intern who was staying the night) tied the bag with three knots and they threw it in the freezer.  Luke checked on the frog about 45 minutes later and announced that it was gone.  Sure enough, the plastic sack was empty!  After emptying out the bottom freezer shelf we found the frog.  Thankfully it was dead.   

How many people do you need to dissect a frog? 
1.       A Dad who knows what he is doing
2.       Someone to scroll down the how-to-dissect-a-frog internet page
3.       Someone to pour and pass terere
4.       a little sister to ask, “what’s that?” every few seconds
5.       two little brothers to say, “that’s awesome!” every few seconds
6.       interns, interns and more interns watching over your shoulder
7.       And….oh yeah…the STUDENT

Hi Amy!

I just came across your blog today and am excited to read about your life in Paraguay! Can you tell me what curriculum you use with your children for homeschooling? I live across the border from you and am considering homeschooling my children who will be in 1st, 1st, 4th and 6th grades next school year.
