This year we are enrolled again in Lighthouse Christian Academy using the ACE curriculum. Just like any other curriculum, there are positives and negatives, but we really like this program and it works very well for our family. I love how ACE incorporates Bible principles into every single subject. I love how they continually point my children to Christ!
This year Brenna is in 6th grade. A middleschooler! She was so excited to start school, that she actually started the night before and did a few pages in each pace. Elisabeth is in 7th grade this year. For 7th graders, literature is optional (not English and Word Building, but reading the assigned books and doing a pace with them). Since she loves reading so much, we went ahead and ordered the Literature for her. I'm thrilled with the books she's going to be reading this year. One of them is Through Gates of Splendor, by Elisabeth Elliot. She's going to love it! She also has some good biographies to read, too.
My Josh is a highschool freshman, now (sniff, sniff) He loves that he is taking College Prep courses. He's enjoying Algebra and doing very well, but it is definitely challenging for him. His favorite is New Testament Survey. He loves digging deeper into God's Word and learning the history behind that time period.
