On the first day back to school...

...Number Six read about an told the story of the ancient, miraculous image of Our Lady of Good Counsel in Rome. We checked Wikipedia and it is very well re-told there. Truly, the historical and artistic richness of the Church is a wonderful teacher!

We finished core subjects and drove to town for the annual Homeschool Spelling Bee. Number Seven achieved a personal best at the oral bee surviving three rounds, and then getting mixed up with the placement of the x in complexity.

Our reigning spelling queen came home with two First Place ribbons, for the written and oral spelldown both. She will attend the regional Bee on February 2nd. Congratulations, Number Six!
