This was our first year to use a curriculum called My Father's World. The 2nd grade year covers U.S. History, which I felt was important since we aren't living in our home country. I wanted to make sure Kieran knew the Pledge of Allegiance and could at least recognize patriotic songs and important people in U.S. history. An added bonus to using this curriculum is that a portion of their profits go to support Bible translation! We really enjoyed the curriculum and look forward to using it for many years to come (you can learn more about My Father's World here).

I'm so proud of Kieran and all the hard work he put into school this year. Granted, there were days I was about to pull out my hair and other days when tears were shed (I won't say who did the crying). However, we moved 5 times this school year (including a move to a remote village), so I would say the fact that we finished a school year and finished it well means we did something right and received a lot of grace from God!
