We are studying the medieval time period this year, most people's favorite around here. The St. A's students attend classes two days a week and do assignments at home, along with math, high school science, spelling and handwriting for the younger group. Monica, our recent SA grad, is taking a gap year and is schooling the youngest, Lydia, using Catholic Heritage Curricula for 1st grade. With Dom in football, the others in running club, and another working with no car yet, I am doing a great deal of driving. Lydia needs a regular schooling schedule so Monica working with her is ideal for all of us. For the first time this year we have our younger children in the religious education program at our parish to insure such an important subject does not fall through the cracks. They use the very solid Faith and Life series, and we are pleased with the teachers, it's a good program.
