We officially ended our school year on Thursday May 4th. After completing our 36 weeks of curriculum, we were ready to call it a year and take the next 3 months off to relax. So for the next 90 days we’ll be soaking up our favorite season, summer.
But first we need to make things “official” and officially end the 2016-2017 school year with our end of the year photos and interviews!
Marissa just wrapped up the 3rd grade. I always feel so “conflicted” when it comes to this sweet girl. She is SO tall and looks so much older than she is, but she is actually really young for her grade. This girl had a really great school year. She mastered multiplication, long division, and fractions. Read almost the entire Little House series and really soaked up her history lessons. She was such a joy to teach over the past year.
Age: 8 (so close to 9!)

This girl keeps me on my toes. She is so silly, spunky and everything I am not! (Which I find completely adorable and completely terrifying all at once.) She is a super smart girl who doubts herself way too much, especially when the pressure and focus is on her. I’ll be honest, she didn’t love all of her school and there were a few tears shed. But she learned so much this year. I am eager to see how our next year goes.

Overall we have no complaints or regrets for the 2016-2017 year. We are loving home school life and have decided to continue on for the next year. We have always looked at this on a yearly basis. We know that #1 Home school is not for everyone. & #2 Home school is not always for everyone. But for now, we really feel like it is the best choice for us.
We have lots of big changes in store for the 2017-2018 year. We are using a new to us curriculum company for several of our core subjects and switching up Marissa’s math to a computer based curriculum. She will also be jumping ahead and doing 5th grade math due to the curriculum change and some placement testing results. There is also the mystery of where we will be living when the school year begins…
But however things end up, I have faith that it will all work out just fine.
I think the only thing left to say is…
When do you officially wrap up your school year?
