On June 14th, we celebrated Caden's last day of 2nd grade and the first complete year of homeschooling! He did a great job this year, and when I asked him if he wanted to continue homeschool or go back to public school next year, he quickly chose homeschool. That helps me feel better about our decision. I can't believe how advanced some of the curriculum was this year, but he handled it like a pro. Vance helped me make this banner for Caden. It says, "Congratulations Caden!" The banner ended up being so long that I couldn't fit it in the photo. Tevye and I hung it up where Caden could see it right when he walked into the living room first thing in the morning. He was so excited upon seeing it that his face just beamed with joy!
For his last day, his assignment was to construct a working drawbridge and ramp out of Legos (I wish that I had taken a picture of it) and we read several pages in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. That night, we ate Caden's favorite dinner- spaghetti. Overall, I think that he felt like he was celebrated for the great job he did this year. I hope he remembers this day for a long time.
