We got some of our curriculum in the mail on Monday and today we broke it out.
This year we are trying our hand at a foreign language. Again. Last year Spanish didn't go very well. None of us liked it, so we didn't do it.
This year we are trying Latin. We are using Prima Latina. >insert groaning by the kids here< There was all kinds of grunts and groans and endless complaining when I told them about it.
I was determined to persevere. I have been hearing from several resources that studying Latin will help with long-range schooling success. I am all about helping them succeed later in life without me!!
So...today we pulled out the books and the listening CD and went to work. I am thrilled to say that I loved it. But better yet, the girls LOVED it. We all had a great time learning it and then putting their father in awe at the dinner table with their knowledge of Latin!
I am excited to see where this curriculum takes us. :)
