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:
All five of our kids enjoying treats after their cousin’s baptism on Sunday.
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.
Sophie turned six.

4. In April
we played in the mud

5. In May
Bella got a bike
lots of nature study, including field trips.
At the top of the tower, looking across the Charles River towards Boston from Mt Auburn Cemetery.
6. In June
we picked strawberries:

We learned about the Mass:

7. In July
we went to Virginia.
and got new swords:

8. In August Granddad came, my sister visited,
I turned forty, we learned about Shakespeare, and more swords. More swords:
Swordfighting with Daddy
Ben with Auntie Tree
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.

10. In October
we had fun making saints costumes and climbing trees
St Anthony and St Therese kneeling.
11. In November we
made doll clothes, went to the MFA,
This sculpture was fascinating. Lucy was not impressed.
and dressed as pirates

12. In December we did more pirating
and had a very Merry Christmas

Now we’re looking forward to more learning, more fun, more adventures in 2015.
Happy New Year, everyone.
