2014 Year in Review

Going through my blog archives and reminiscing about this past year.

1. In January I posted a poem a day with art too. Lucy learned to walk.

We went to my niece’s baptism:

We watched the entire Nutcracker. And read poetry.

2. In February Bella made her first communion.

Bella looks pensive thinking about the day.

We took a walk in the woods:

And Lucy played barefoot in the snow.

3. In March we welcomed spring, playing outside with bare feet.

9. In September we did lots and lots of Shakespeare, I started hosting the Guilt Free Learning Notes linkup, and mostly did school at home since my foot was in a walking cast and long field trips were out of the question.

    It’s amazing to see how much older Lucy looks.
