Year in Review
Ok, I'll admit it.... I'm a copy cat. I have seen a few blogs doing a year in review post, and I thought it was a good ideas - so here we go.
This time last year, Delta was 7, Echo was almost 5, Foxtrot was 2 and a half, and Golf was only 6 months old. Also grandkids: Zulu was 7 and a half, and Yankee was 1 and a half. We were doing a mostly AO program with some modifications from Milestones Academy, Simply Charlotte Mason, and my own Canadian additions.
Now they are all a year older (ok, duh...). Delta has been baptized and is in Cubs. Echo has joined Beavers. Foxtrot is learning to read with "Teach your child to read in 100 Easy Lessons" and doing a bit of math with RightStart Level A. And Golf just started walking a couple of days before Christmas, is saying some words, signs more, and is continually asking me to put on "Baby Signing Time".
Here are the Top 5 posts for the year (based on the stats)
Canadian History Plan - Updated!
History - Familiy Rotation
Help - History Year 1
This Country Of Ours
