This year we are beginning 4th grade for Mary Helen and 2nd grade for Anna. We will be using My Father's World for our Bible, History, Science, and some literature. We started using MFW last year with Adventures, and this year we are starting Exploring Cultures and Countries. The focus is on geography, cultures of the countries, missionary heros, and learning the major religions of various people groups while learning how to pray for those groups.
I sat down today and figured up that when the baby we're expecting to arrive in February (#5) graduates in 2032, I will have taught through the 5 year cycle of MFW 3 times. So, I thought it would be a good idea to keep a record of what we use, what we do, what we enjoy, etc. Not only will it be priceless for my family to look back on, but it will serve as a great reminder the next couple of times I go through it!
We are in week 4 right now, so I'll try to catch up and keep going with what we're doing each week.
