The end of summer always brings preparation for the new school year. This year I decided to continue teaching using classical methods, but using a different curriculum. I chose to try out Classical Conversations. In the past I have purchased a few of their products to use along with our curriculum, but we hadn’t used their full program.
I took a few days to prepare for our year. It took time. And coffee. Lots of coffee.

A quick trip to the beach in between Brian’s classes was in order. This time we checked out a few new things – the Aquarium and the Surf Museum, both were a lot of fun!

We had to eat at The Boiling Pot in Fulton/Rockport…

The kids continued to serve at our church and I continued to see how God was growing each of them. Vincent made friends with a few preschool age kiddos, all of which became attached to him. Watching him with the young kids has been a complete joy.
Of course we had evening walks and bike rides, trips to the library, homemade s’mores ice cream when burn bans were in effect, late night star gazing, and swimming (lots of swimming).

We celebrated the end of summer with our traditional Dairy Queen ice cream treat.

At the end of the month Brian started school again and the kids attended their first Classical Conversations community day.
