Summer is our favorite time to catch up on personal reading. Sophia and Oliver read a great deal this summer snuggled on the porch cushions or sprawled out at the beach…

Today was our first day back to school! (photos are showing our geography lesson, recess and math) Sophia has officially started 6th grade, and Oliver has officially started 4th grade. These school years are magical in every way. I wish I could hold back the clock, as every parent is probably thinking right now.
Our first book we will read as a class is a beautifully illustrated (abridged) version of Miguel de Cervantes, “Don Quixote.” The original version which I read-in English-a few years ago, was written in Spanish in the late 1500’s, published in 1605. Our goal is to read and discuss as we travel through Portugal, Seville, Granada, Cordoba this month. The synergy will be palpable!
We are all excited for a GREAT year of Adventure-School.
