History Summed Up!

We just finished school for the summer! This past week, so that we could finish by today, we've done about four chapters in The Prophet's history book. I'm not worried about him missing something because he'll cover the Ancient Times to the Fall of Rome again in fifth grade. His final narration was to list some of the gifts of Rome which we still use today (names of planets & months, swimming pools, books sewn together, etc.) His last comment summed up our whole year of history & I thought it fit in perfectly:

"And without archaelogists, we wouldn't know about this."
We'll still do a few things throughout the summer so they'll stay fresh in his mind. We'll read a lot & do some math flash cards. Now to start planning next school year so that we can begin in Sept. after our new arrival joins us! I have all the books, I just need to get organized.
Have a great summer!
