Classical Conversations Week In Review #3

My incredible class.  I love these kids.  
God is SO good.  I cannot believe that I ever had a moments hesitation about doing and using Classical Conversations.  I was deeply afraid it would box me in, take away my excitement and love of pursuing rabbit trails, be too mundane, HA!  I was WRONG!

Classical Conversations has been one of the greatest experiences of our homeschool.  It's up there with Five In A Row and Heart Of Dakota.
  
It has reignited my first love of learning and teaching.  It is helping us with not only our educational goals, but our personal ones as well.  

The community gives me the boundaries I need to stay consistent but the freedom within those boundaries to follow rabbit trails when and "if" I feel like it.

Family Presentation
 Amy is quickly becoming a dear friend.  She reminds me very much of my husband, personality wise.  I love watching her shine as a mom using her strong gifts of Responsbility, Deliberative, Consistency.  

They sang songs and Nathan (her little one) did front rolls across the stage.  It was so cute!

Foundations




Mrs. Mullins is our classroom mom for the year. (We honestly had nothing to do with that!)  Having her in our room made our day so much more fun!

Fellowship- Lunch
Last week, I shared with Christa that after teaching for 2 1/2 hours I did not want to sit inside and asked if she wanted to bring her lawn chair.  It is the best thing we ever did!  The kids were outside playing ball, riding their ripsticks, getting their energy out, and the moms were able to really connect.  Thank you, Lord!

Essentials
Afternoon program for children who are reading.  This is our Language Arts & I.E.W. (Creative Writing) + we do math drill through games and competition. 



For I know the plans I have for you and your children Mary.  Plans to prosper them (and you) and not to harm.  Plans to give you all a HOPE and a FUTURE!
