Last Page Day!

Yesterday brought the arrival of "last page day" also known as the last day of morning lessons before we head in to our summer rhythm. 
For Grace's last page she chose to write about what she was most looking forward to this summer. 
Emma's last page was actually completed the week before with a verse about the elements of fire, water, earth and air. Yesterday capped off a week of review for both girls. 
 Once their lesson books were finished all of the lesson books from this year (each girl completed three) were brought out. It's always fun to look back and see how much they did and how much they grew from September to May. The improvement in their handwriting alone is remarkable! 
 As you can see Grace still needed stars to help with her spacing between words in the autumn/early winter. By late winter/spring those stars where but a memory! 
This year to celebrate Last Page Day we asked the girls what they would like to do. After a little bit of thought they decided upon a celebratory ice cream with Dairy Queen being their destination of choice. Vanilla cones dipped in chocolate were chosen to kick off our summer on a classic note! 

We're looking forward to moving into our summer rhythm- Of days spent primarily outside (in and around the garden and at the lake). Of reading and knitting, and maybe even a little bit of German. Of visits to the library, the farm and the summer concerts on the green. Of walks to get ice cream and adventures yet to be determined. xo


  1. That sounds like a really fun Summer ahead!
