What a wonderful collection of photos of your boys. We are at the end of term 3 here on Oz and on school holidays. You take lovely photos and I love your blog. :)
Cathie.

I just love how you capture all your Dudes enriching their minds. I don't think I've taken any school photos yet, and we've been at it for 2 months. Oops.

Cathie, I know we just finished our summer here and I have no reason to be envying you your school holiday, but envying, I am ;-). Enjoy your break! And thanks for your kind words.

You lost me at Latin prep.
And I love that your littlest drew a picture for everyone in his class! So sweet!

Oh wow! I love this post and pictures. You have given me a great idea to add to a picture book I'm making for my step daughters graduation gift. Thanks for the light bulb moment! BTW you pictures are so good! Lisa

Are you teaching them Latin? Do you know it? What program(s) have you used and liked? Do you mind if I pick your brain a bit? (I should have asked that one first...) :)

Christina - I tried emailing you back, but you have "no-reply comment" set up with blogger; so hopefully you'll check back in here. Latin ... I learned about a high school year's worth of Latin 9 years ago when my oldest was starting Latin. I taught myself using Latin Book One (old but good 1930s text) and then I went thru about 6 units of Henle 1. By this point, I've probably forgotten more than I remember :-{. My kids have done Latin for Children A & B (don't like). Latin Prep 1-3 (love!) and So You Think You Want to Learn Latin 3 (same series, follows after Latin Prep). After that the plan is Henle 2 & 3. At whatever point they bog down, they start an online class (Scholar's Online with Dr. McMenomy).
