Grace is becoming anxious to begin her new guide because her sisters started a new guide this week. I’m glad we have a few weeks before we begin though as I’m helping Beth become acclimated to her new guide. Grace learned more about Davy Crockett this week in history. We enjoy the history book in these last units, both the style of writing and how each chapter teaches how people lived in colonial and pioneer days. There are a lot of good illustrations and descriptions of things like soap making, churning butter, making a canoe, and more.
We are plodding along with all of our other subjects. They are all going well with no real bumps except she would like to be moving more quickly through her studies! For literature she has been reading through the Kirsten books from Pleasant Company. She finished the last book this week and asked to read the next book in the Chronicles of Narnia, so she will soon be voyaging on the Dawn Treader.

Our pup Penny loves to cuddle with the girls while they read for school. Usually they read literature and history assignments in the living room or their bedroom and Penny quickly follows when she sees a book in hand! Rose is enjoying the Mr. Pipes book she is reading in this guide. She says the one thing she loves about our history studies is how all the reading is connected and she gets to read lots of different books about the same time in history. This is just one more reason I’m grateful for Heart of Dakota and all the time the author put into researching and finding these great gems of literature!
Math is bumpy, but less bumpy than previously. Hope for fewer and fewer bumps!
