I'm going to play a little catch up on my blog. First a little about what is current. Christopher is home! I love having my whole family under one roof. For a little while anyway. We don't have much planned for the next couple of weeks and that is a good thing. We have lots of planning and preparing to do for the upcoming year. Him for college and the rest of us for our upcoming school year. Its a time of big transitions for all of us. I would love prayers for all of us. I'm excited for Christopher. I also know that this will be hard on the rest of us to have him gone. Its a new way in which I need to learn to trust God and grow.
I wanted to share a bit about our co-op. This was our last formal meeting, though I also have another activity day to post. I hope this is encouraging for anyone wanting to do Beyond. It is a great unit study to use! If you have any questions about it - know I'm happy to answer them.
A fun ending to a fun year with Volume 1. We covered the last chapters in the book. One of the lessons we covered was on marathons. We asked Christopher to talk with the children about running a marathon. He gave some interesting facts on the history of marathons and told some of his experience in preparing for and running a marathon! I loved having him share and think that the kids did too.
After listening and learning it was time to put them into action.
We ended our day with a campfire. This was from an earlier lesson in the book, but we were rained out on that day. It was a fun thing to save for the last day together though! Christopher showed the others how to build and start a fire.
