School Update

It's been a while since I've made an update about our homeschooling journey! So here goes, we "finished" first grade at the end of March. North Carolina requires each homeschooled student to take a standardized test at the end of each year. We chose to take the CAT test. Both girls did awesome!! They both scored in the top 2% of the nation in Math and the top 5% of the nation in Reading. We were so excited for them, and they were excited too.

Since we got all of the "formal stuff" out of the way, we are now just enjoying some fun activities together. We still do math reviews and the girls typically read each day. They are gardening with Daddy and spending lots of time "studying" nature in our backyard. I guess we have sort of taken on an unschooling method until we begin second grade around the second week of June. They are most definitely still learning each day!

We had our end of first grade celebration at Massanutten Water Park while we were visiting my parents in Virginia. It's an indoor water park and the girls had a blast! We hope to be able to celebrate the end of each school year with a special adventure like this!
I just love this picture! They really are best friends!
