We've officially completed another year of home education and it's time to celebrate and embrace summer break. We have educated the girls at home from the beginning and this year we completed 6th and 7th grades. although it's hard work, I'm grateful we have the opportunity to walk this journey together. Here are some of the things I'm so grateful we did this year.

I'm so glad we participated in our local Classical Conversations community.
I'm so glad my oldest daughter completed the Challenge A level.
I'm so glad my youngest daughter became a memory master for cycle 3.

I'm so glad we started each morning with a read aloud and hot chocolate.
(in 7 years we have read aloud 106 books together!)
I'm so glad we had bacon on Friday mornings
(as an incentive to get up and get school started on time!)
I'm so glad we read through Bravewriter's Arrow booklist and did some "party school"
|party school for the book The Red Pencil|
I'm so glad we took time off to go to New York (saw Niagra Falls!), Boston and Hawaii
I'm so glad we dove even deeper into Hamilton the Musical and got to see the Broadway show
I'm so glad we invited several people over for poetry tea time
|exploring a tide pool in Maui|
I'm so glad we switched to Saxon Math
I'm so glad we explored Latin
I'm so glad we were done by noon most days

I'm SO glad we get to enjoy a summer break!
