Hi, Mama Squirrel :) I didn't realize that you have a first grader until tonight. It's fun to read about some of the same stories we're reading here. SweetP is doing a "modified" AO Year One -meaning most of the books are AO, but I've added a few in and taken a few out as well as adjusted the schedule a bit. But, it's still interesting to see what y'all are doing :) We're in week 5. Blessings!
