2nd grade: jul 2017 - jun 2018

Liana 7-8 Years old / coen 6-7 years old

This year the kiddos joined the Tuesday weekly homeschool program at Cherry Creek Options Mountain View K-12 in Centennial, CO. They loved their weekly language arts, science, music, art, and physical education classes. Liana and Coen were also thrilled to be in their own grade level classes instead of being in combined grades. They just wanted one day a week to have a break from each other which I can totally understand! I also really enjoyed having a free day too!
