Life was in a general state of flux.

Sonlight Core 1 which has a new name now Core B. Intro to World History Part 1. We learned all about Egypt and the Roman empire. We read a book about Myths and ventured into the world of Ms. Piggy Wiggle which we all laughed our way through, and so much more!
It is interesting to look back - the kids did get schooled.
|The tiny room they all shared.|
It was a year of firsts. Our first Moldovan Christmas, our first Moldovan New Year - which I will highlight in another post. We move to our Moldovan house and set up our school room. It is very nice to have one room as our homeschool room.

As spring neared we hired a Romanian teacher to give private language lessons to Irina and Wesley. Lucy hung around the room picking up a bit of this and that. The kids learned some phrases and got a beginning grasp of the language they are surrounded by. While they haven't learned it as fast as we thought they would I do think they are slowly learning more than I even realize.

The transition to a new culture isn't without bumps in the road. My kids don't like it if I ask them if they like it here in Moldova. Because really they are happy wherever they are as long as they don't have to think about where they are not. If that makes sense.

Learning - "Schooling" - isn't just books, pen and paper. It isn't even all about the 3 R's. It is about learning to adapt and learn from the people around you.
To take what you learn from books into the world around you wherever that may be.
