|Lillianne's first day of CC - Sept. 2013|
|Lillianne's last day of CC - April 2014|
This morning was our end of the school year CC Celebration! Lillianne was so excited to have Daddy and Granddad come to see what they've learned this year =) And I got teary eyed throughout the morning watching the kids - thinking about how much Lillianne has grown up this year!
We have LOVED Classical Conversations! She started the year as a quite and very shy 4 year old. Over the course of the year, she's blossomed! She's made friends (begged for play dates!), learned new things, developed art skills, practiced listening to someone other than mom teach, and even got a little louder during presentations!
I'm amazed at how much these little ones have learned this year! Her class learned to skip count (1's through 15's), sang songs to memorize history facts, learned about several famous composers/artists, conducted science experiments, ran around the room playing memory games, learned definitions for different parts of a sentence and recited a 161 point timeline - from creation to Christ to current events! I often find myself singing songs that we've learned in school --- and actually, I'm quite a bit smarter than I was in September, too! =)
It's been great meeting other homeschool mommas. I've picked up some new teaching techniques, learned to let some stuff go, and we've just really, really enjoyed our time there! Even Hudson's picking up on the songs and will random start singing about President Reagan or the Vietnam War…makes me so happy!
Summers right around the corner - we'll be winding down here at home in the next week or two but we are already looking forward to CC starting again in the fall! What a blessing this groups been!
