A new school year has started, and new books have been cracked open in our house. This year I have a 2nd grader, a preschooler, and a baby. This is also the last year I don't have to worry about reporting to my school district, so I am enjoying the laid-back non-stress year as much as possible.
This year we are approaching school with a unit-based classical style, as a family. Although my four-year-old may not understand everything, she is enjoying "doing school" with her big brother. I am loving how we are bringing all the subjects together by using RC History, which is a Catholic, classical, literature based approach to history. The co-op we belong to, Classical Catholic Memory, is also easily fitting into the units we are studying since they are both based in the ancient world this year, and the time of the Old Testament. They are both building a timeline through the year and I hope for the crossover to help Sebastian see connections in real life.
