Finally, Year 4!

It is so hard to believe that this year our  Tapestry of Grace co-op that began three years ago will complete Year 4, the final year of the curriculum. When we began our co-op, my friends and I were on different years of the four year cycle. We collectively decided that Year 1 was a very good place for a co-op to start. Thus, our family, after finishing Year 3, skipped Year 4 and went back to the Ancients. All that to say that in my eight years of homeschooling with Tapestry, I have never completed Year 4. Yes, I spent two years in Years 1 and 2 the fist time around and then did Years  3, 1, 2, and 3 again. Finally, the Jobe family will study the 20th century! Thankfully, my oldest daughter completed Year 4 through the Lampstand Learning Center her senior year. I would not have wanted her to graduate from high school without completing all four years of Tapestry. However, as she studied Year 4, the rest of us continued learning alongside our co-op with Year 3.

I AM SO EXCITED!!! Our co-op is such a blessing. We have record attendance this year – a preschool, lower grammar, upper grammar, two dialectic and a rhetoric class. Our classes are full and students and teachers alike are ready for this new year!

Here are some pictures of our first day –

    Tina,

    Maybe you’d like to have a course of Bible geography? Let me know.
