What I Enjoyed This Week: CC End of the Year Party!

We finished up Classical Conversations this week with our end of the year party.  Mostly, it was a party at a park with lots of delicious food, but we did have a short awards ceremony.  Sarah Beth and another child from our campus both completed the difficult task of becoming a Memory Master.  They had to memorize all of the memory work for the year and be able to recite it four different times.  It's a big deal, and I'm so proud of their hard work!

I also wanted to recognize Sarah Beth because she completed six years of Foundations and three years of Essentials, and is graduating up to Challenge next year.  It's a wonderful turning point in her education, from memorizing great information to starting to learn how to use it.  I'm very excited!

Here are a few other things I enjoyed this week:

  • Sarah Beth scored her first soccer goal on Saturday!  Unfortunately, I wasn't there because I was at Rachel's game.
  • no piano lessons this week.  Our teacher's children were sick, so she cancelled which meant that we didn't have to rush through school and lunch to get there on time.  It also gave us time for a quick trip to the library!
  • running errands by myself yesterday afternoon.  I was able to get my hair cut and do some other things that are difficult with children in tow.
We have a busy weekend planned with a birthday party for John's mother.  Eighty years is a big deal!  

We've had a busy April, and May looks to be even busier.  I just want you to know because I may not be around in the blogosphere much.  

What did you enjoy this week?  What do you have planned for the weekend?
