School’s Out….

Can’t believe I’m excited already for the new school year ahead, as it’s only been ONE day since we ended our school for the season…..but this is exciting to me – yes, our next unit of Latin …..

My high school son and I are just loving Cambridge Latin.  I don’t want to give away how Unit 1 ended….(spoilers!), but, the unit followed a family the whole year…and well, they lived in Pompeii…..(yes, I know)…..we wept.  And we learned more history that was beautifully integrated with pictures and facts, so what a great enrichment course.  And the Latin readings (stories), are fabulous.  They followed family life and goings-on, like any small town village.  Grumio the cook, Clemens the slave, and even Cerberus the family dog. 

So, yes, I’m shopping for next year’s items, before talking to even my own education consultant…..but we are so standard, because well there’s just everything to love about doing the standard courses with Mother of Divine Grace.  There has been little we have ever departed from through the years so I guess you could say we are rather generic, in our own unique way!

School’s Out for Summer!
