A lot has happened since I last updated you. For one, we celebrated 2 birthdays. Silas turned 9 and Aedan turned 12. I have no idea where these years have gone. I don't have as many pictures to share, but this will be a review in pictures. Since our last update we traveled to Canada, Brazil, Norway and France. Around the time we were in Norway I was starting to feel like our plans this year weren't as fun as in years' past, so I decided to row a few books with Five in a Row for France. Those were GREAT weeks! I feel like FIAR was able to add some of the experience and fun that we were lacking in ECC. I'm not sure I will sustain it all year, but we have some plans to row a handful of books - at least one or two per continent. I will share those rows in a separate post. Don't get me wrong, Silas has learned a lot about the cultures of the world. I love that he is becoming an expert in geography as well! I was just lacking inspiration, and I think I found it. I will try to do a better job of keeping the blog up to date, but as we all know, life sometimes happens.
