Bookworm-8 is now ready to enter third grade. Taking an extra year was the best decision EVER! I never could have guessed how much growing, both emotionally and intellectually, would happen this over last year.   Like last year, we started with Memoria Press Third Grade Core as our jumping point.

Relaxed, Classical Kindergarten Curriculum Plan

Our daughter, Miss Lady-5 does not meet the cut-off to have been considered a kindergartener last year, but she was more than ready (and wanting) to begin Kindergarten level work in January.

Living the Liturgical Year - July

Living the Liturgical Year – July

In July we are still in ordinary time and while summer might be the ideal time to live the liturgical year as a family because many obligations disappear, summer seems to be FULL of busy. Either way, there aren’t a lot of feast days, memorials, or solemnities, but there are a few days to note. […] Read more…

What Did (and Did NOT) Work For Us – Classical / Charlotte Mason / Memoria Press for Second & Kindergarten

Last year, I decided to jump back into classical education. As much as my oldest liked crafty things, I despise them. But we all like books (hello Charlotte Mason) and I wanted my oldest to start Latin. So we started with Memoria Press & tweaked. Go here to see our original choices for K4 Curriculum […] Read more…
