We'll need to continue French and composition throughout the summer weeks (Emma & Jeffrey). We've still got a few weeks of Geometry left, too. Lydia & Sam each have some math to finish up as well. Everything else is either done or will be done by next Friday.
Emma goes to MDA camp from the 15th to the 20th, so we won't do any school for that week. Instead, we are going to PURGE a ton of stuff from this house. And maybe do some painting (not canvas painting, but the wall kind). I haven't decided yet if we'll have a rummage sale, or just
Last night was our homeschool group's high school graduation ceremony. It was really nice! There were four graduates, and each one had the opportunity to share some kind of talent (singing, recitation, etc.). The parents were able to say a few words as they handed their graduate a diploma. And then the grads each said a few words (favorite memories, future plans, thanking their parents). All four of them were in the musical this past year, and they each shared fond memories about that. It made me a little verklempt.
All of the homeschooled undergrads (any age) sang "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". We use it as a final warm-up for musical rehearsal, so most of the kids already knew it. It has a lovely descant that goes pretty high. They just went up there cold and belted it out last night, though. Not too shabby. It's a little pitchy in spots, but I love the chord on the last note. I love these kids. My kids.
Lydia is in the 2nd row from the front--in a brown shirt.
Lydia's dance recital is tomorrow, so we've got to get to an extra rehearsal right now. I still need to write about the homeschool conference I attended, curriculum choices for next year, and more!
