To kick-off the school year and to have a time to recognize Andrew's accomplishments last year, we took the boys to Chuck E Cheese's at Andrew's request. He called it the "School Celebration!"
Our book list this year includes (just to name a few):
Henry Higgins, Beverly Cleary
Mr. Popper's Penguins, Richard & Florence Atwater
Charlotte's Web, E.B. White
George Muller, Janet & Geoff Benge
Detectives in Togas, Henry Winterfeld
Homer Price, Robert McCloskey
The Year of Miss Agnes, Kirkpatrick Hill
These are read aloud books in Sonlight's Grade 1 curriculum. We are also using Sonlight's science, language arts, and reading as well as Math U See, The Story of the World for history, and The Church History ABC's.
We are so thankful to be settling in for our short stint here in AR. God provided so much strength in the midst of sheer physical exhaustion the day we unpacked our trailer. At the end of the day, it was probably our easiest move-in, with the help of two dollies that were provided at just the right time. Even with over 100 degree temperatures, we made it through unscathed. Andrew particularly has grown to be quite the helper. He has the energy and drive to get things accomplished and is always motivated. We love the place we live and are excited to see what new things we can see in this part of the country. Micah is working diligently. And so the adventure continues...
