This time last year, Delta was 8, Echo was almost 7, Foxtrot was 3, and Golf was only 18 months old. Also grandkids: Zulu was 8, and Yankee was 2 and a half. We were using a Mentoring Program developed by the creator of Milestones Academy. (The Mentoring program is now closed.)
Now we are doing AO with my modifications (mostly Canadian changes). Delta has over 20 badges in Cubs. Echo is still loving Beavers. Foxtrot has finished "Teach Your Child to read in 100 Easy Lessons, and is reading books on her own. And Golf has gotten glasses and has turned into a person, and is learning to use the toilet.
