A Year of Classical Conversations

My Anna.....graduating last week from her Christian Classical high-school. I homeschooled her through 8th grade.  I can't believe she is a high-school graduate now!  I'm so very glad I was able to spend more time with her,especially in the early years, by homeschooling her.

Last August when we were beginning a new homeschool journey, I said that I would let you all know how using Classical Conversations for a year has been.  Well, we have loved it!! It has been such a blessing to us and I think this past year has been one of our best homeschooling years........yes, even with having 2 "babies" to tend to and 5 different grade levels to teach. So, for time's sake, I'm going to give a bucket-list of reasons we have liked it so much and why we will continue with CC. 

1. It gives me a scope and sequence that I can use for preK-12th, if desired.
2. All my children have enjoyed it immensely.
3. I love the community it has given us and the other homeschool moms I have met.  These mothers, and Dads, are not only very committed to their family, but very committed to homeschooling.
4. My children have learned so very much!  The memorization comes so easily to them and they have been so "impressed" with themselves.
5. It actually frees me up some in the morning.  I can put on the CC time-line or weekly CD and they can begin without me. 
6. I have loved learning along with them and especially learning about Classical education in general.

We will continue next year and I'm actually planning on being a tutor the for the K-1st grade class.  MK is so excited that I will be her teacher : )


  1. Congratulation to Anna! Interesting to hear about this curriculum I will have to look into it :)

  2. Congratulations to Anna! We use Classical Education too but I have yet to do Classical Conversations. I will have to look into it more.


Thanks so much for your comments! I love them and they keep me writing. I really do read each one.
