We planned to finish our school year by the time my parents’ made their summer visit out to Colorado and we managed to finish everything (almost!) necessary to start summer break nice and early!
Ethan worked hard to finish his Singapore math workbook and finished the week just doing flashcards. Micah’s math has been all over the place this year, so we just worked on number recognition at the end just to make sure we had taken care of that important part! So, he would read the math problem on the flashcards and Ethan would answer as soon as he heard it. =)
I snapped some pictures as comparisons from our first day of school. They have both grown in so many ways this year – weight, height, intellect, maturity – we’re very proud of the young men they are becoming!
First Day: Last Day:
We went for a bike ride to the park and then out for lunch to celebrate our last day. The weather was gorgeous and we had so much fun! The boys wanted to take those pictures of marmalade jam for my Dad since I had told them that he always loved it on his sandwiches when I was a kid. =D
We finished the year with a fun art project. I worked on making new summer reading charts for them. The boys loved my castle, so they worked on their own castles, too! I wanted to include pictures of the boys with their summer reading posters from last summer, too. They stayed up until we put these new ones in their room! =D
We had a great homeschooling year! So proud of these boys for working hard all year and making it *mostly* a very enjoyable experience!!
