Lucky Seven

My other baby, Mackenzie, is going to be in seventh grade this year. Gah!! Why do they insist on growing up? It's getting annoying.

Once again, I was forced to plan for it against my will. Darn these kids.

The spine for Mackenzie's seventh grade year is Sonlight's Core G: World History, Part 1. This year she will revisit the time of creation through the Middle Ages with lots and lots of books. I think she's excited because I keep catching her trying to read the books.

I've always looked at Sonlight, but been too intimidated to use it. It looks like a great year for you all, though. Thank you for linking up!
