I'm Back! :)
Well, can't believe it's been almost a year since I posted. Today we had our Medieval Feast, to celebrate the end of the Middle Ages unit. We use Tapestry of Grace and they have these great celebration ideas. We did Year 1 last year, and I am sad to say we did no unit celebrations.....it was our first year homeschooling and I already felt overwhelmed enough without adding all the preparation for a big celebration. But I am so glad we have started to have them. The Renaissance and Reformation are next, and that will be fun, too, I am sure. The 2 big girls are bowling with the Jr. High youth group now. Can't believe they are old enough to be in a youth group! We are loving the snow....wish there was more of it! Though Spring sounds nice, too....I just love having all four seasons! Just when you get sick of one, it changes! In the past year, Jason's sister got married and we were pretty busy with that, as all 5 kids were in the wedding and Jason & I were the Master and Mistress of Ceremonies. Fun times. In the Fall, we got involved in the local community theater, and did "Joan of Arc." I was Isabelle D'Arc, Joan's mother, my oldest daughter was "Young Joan," my second oldest daughter was "Young Catherine," (Joan's younger sister), my husband was Joan's sweetheart and my oldest son was a page in the castle of Charles VII. I have the theater bug now! What fun. Plus since we had been studying the Middle Ages, it was the perfect play for us. Gotta go get the girls from bowling!
