2015-2016 Year in Review

I just finished assembling portfolios for the boys to have them reviewed.  I can't believe we're already wrapping up our "formal" school year!

Yes, it's a little earlier than I usually do our portfolio review, but with the upcoming move, I wanted our paper trail closed for the year.  Not that the learning stops just because the school calendar ends.  We're still memorizing poetry, and learning new geography related to the move, and reviewing a video-based science curriculum, and we have co-op tomorrow, and you know . . . all that other fun stuff that is really educational that goes on around here!

So what did our year look like?

That's just a snapshot of our year.  It doesn't show that Emory learned to read, or has a passion for nature.  It doesn't show how hard Elliott worked to master multiple digit multiplication, or how he's a STEM kid.  It doesn't show that Eleanor knows her letters and their initial sounds, or that *aha* moment when she realized there were two letters that make the /k/ sound.  It doesn't show that Eloise has some serious gross motor skills and can run and climb like a five year old or the way she nods her head for each syllable when she's saying Emory, Elliott or Eleanor.

It does, however, show the moments.  The family-style learning that brings us together each day.  The hands-on, experiential learning.  The laughter.  The memories.
