Ice Skating

This afternoon Lucia, Rose and I went ice skating. Rose and I went for a walk yesterday and enjoyed playing on the ice, so we paid another visit today with Lucia. Lucia made a lot of progress on the skates and Rose enjoyed playing on the ice in her shoes.

First Reconciliation

Lucia and Rose are both preparing for their First Communion this year, which starts with First Reconciliation. They attended this morning, with Susan. Both girls were excited to go and enjoyed the whole experience.

Afternoon Walk

It was a beautiful afternoon today, so Susan, Rose, and I went for a nice walk around the neighborhood. Rose wanted to make this nature art down by the creek.

Not sure why this picture was taken, but it is a suitable time to post about the school year is going for Lucia and Rose this year. It is going well. We never pushed reading much with our homeschooling and we knew they would have a lot of catching up to do. They were both barely reading before the school year started. A couple of months into it, they are doing great. They each work with the reading teacher at their school and we can see their tremendous progress and some of the new techniques they are learning.
