Starting off our new year

Rome to Reformation

We have been travelling South Africa for over 2 months and then adjusted back home in Skopje. Now we are ready to kick off our new year... on our own schedule.....  

We are doing My Father's World Curriculum Rome to Reformation.

We kicked off our year with some "Roman food"   Gyro's from the corner shop.....The closest we can get to real Roman food..

Jac is in 3rd Grade

Neo-Rie in 5th Grade

Zane in 8th Grade.
Chereni is my challenge this year.  Trying to fit her into my program.... Let's see how it goes.

Before we started our year we visited the Zoo before the cold weather sets in and had fun at the International School's Fall Festival

With Corne and Filip at the Zoo

Creation to Abraham.

When you plan your homeshool year perfectly and then things change.....  We adopted our new daughter and homeschooling ( the official part of it) went out the window.  We decided to stop schooling for a while and focus on our new family.  We started back up in January and are  now on our schedule. We will probably never fit any mold.  So now we are a family of 6 trying to homeschool again.

We now have a toddler which brings all kind of new challenges, new routines and new thinking about how to homeschool.

But here is an update of what we have been doing so far.

We are still on My Fathers World Curriculum doing Creation to Greek.
