We are currently reading our last book as part of the Before Five in a Row fun we've been having this year!
I will admit that the past few books, we merely read and talked about at breakfast. I did not plan anything to go with and I think that these books were my least favorite. This made it harder to want to plan fun things and easier to just read them and be satisfied with that.
We've been busy and I've been needing to get things back in shape around the house, so this is just what served us at this time.
The last four books we read were:
I Am An Artist by Pat L. Collins
Angus Lost by Marjorie Flack
If Jesus Came To My House by Joan Gale Thomas
Jenny's Surprise Summer by Eugenie
I'm not pleased to say that we ended this way, because it feels like we had so much fun all year and then this was sort of a low ending. But, as I said above - it is what worked for us at this time. Since we are not "official" homeschoolers yet (Emily won't be Kindergarten age until Fall of 2010) I really just want to enjoy this time where we can be a bit more flexible and extend ourselves a little grace!
We have loved doing this series of books and I hope you'll get a chance to read some of them! I think my favorite one might have been My Big Green Pocketbook - but it is so hard to pick a favorite!
