We are both enjoying Viking Tales, and I personally like Trial and Triumph. I never learned the history of the church in an organized way, and I just hope he's gleaning something from each reading as he sees my excitement! We have seen a lot of birds move into the area lately, and I will especially enjoy the bluebirds. Learning about birds has been one of my favorite parts of this year.

We are in week 34 now, which only leaves 2 more weeks of school, plus the optional exam week. I haven't done exams on the other terms, and don't plan on doing it this time either. What I am planning on doing is continuing schooling, with breaks for trips, throughout the summer. He does better with a routine, and since we haven't progressed as much in math as I hoped, this will give time to master some more things. Hopefully, with a lighter load, we can have a great summer and be ready to start AO Year 2 in the fall. On the bright side, we jumped from a first grade primer to a third grade reader, and he's doing very well!
