7th Grade – What We Did

May 23, 2007 at 8:02 am (Uncategorized)

This has been such a wild and CrAzY year for us that I really lost all control over school.  We stopped doing our Sonlight Curriculum at Christmas, and somehow we never got back to it…  So, I decided I need to sit down and go through my calendar, blog and notes to see just what we did do this year!  This is not the year I expected to have when we started out last September.   I think it has been a good year none the less.
