We had a long, hot Summer, and yet somehow it seems to be abruptly done. I think it is because Zachary was gone until just a few weeks ago, and not having him nor Alexander here just was not right. July 17th-August 10th seemed like long hot days we just had to get through. (That was the time period when both our teen boys were gone.)
We did pack a lot into the last 2 weeks though!
Yesterday Jamie returned to school, and we officially began. I am primarily using Five in a Row with the triplets, so we started off with "The Story About Ping". Today we talked about ducks, tomorrow will be family and counting, then floating and the geography of China on Thursday. We are making lapbooks to show their work.
I am very glad we decided to keep the triplets home this year. In a few weeks we will be embarking upon the ultimate Field Trip--- driving to Fort Jackson in South Carolina to see Alexander graduate from Basic Combat Training!!
