Say goodbye to Red Fox

That's right, Red Fox is returning to public school (well, if you can say 'returning', since technically, he only completed half a year of kindergarten in public school).

For now, Black Bear will be writing to you about his Homeschooling adventures.

Yep, Red Fox's days of enjoying crafty, nifty, story-themed, school projects in his PJ's are over (for now).

It's Summer Break!~~Poem

School's out!
It's time to play!
Have some fun 
on a summer day!
I've no time to Blog, 
No time to write,
I'm walking this log
And fishing this lake!
I can't stop to Tweet,
I'm running around
And moving my feet.
If you hear a Twitter,
Know it's not me,
I'm baking a fritter!
I'm going to cook!
I'm going to sculpt!
I'm having a look,
at a horse I might ride.
I'll be picking up litter,
At the river clean-up day.
So if you see me out,
Just say "Hey!"
But don't look for me here.
Wait till September.
At the next school year!

The Odd Zoo

Everyone loves the zoo here at Homeschoop! So we added some new creatures in colorful varieties and with familiar sounding names.  See if you recognize any of them...

AND!  We have three surprise 'pets' at our zoo that are pretty cool.  You'll get a kick out of them.

Happy Birthday Red Fox

For my birthday, I had a really cool birthday.  I had roller blading, scooter riding and everything.  All my friends were there.  We did lots of exciting stuff.  A science was supposed to blow up but it didn't go so well, haha.  Kidding.  We had karaoke and lots of fun as you can tell from the looks on everyone's faces.
