Ancient Rome

ooh, we're slowing getting it together.  I'm so pleased with myself.  I actually have 2 weeks scheduled and so far it's been working.  We are in week 2 of 4 weeks of Rome, and then we're going to do a couple of weeks on India and a couple of weeks on China.   I'm using this time for the kids to learn, obviously but also to figure out how to get a schedule going and figure out how to plan,  record our work and keep track of all the information/links, etc.....b/c I really have to start doing better with next year.  2nd grade can't be as laid back as this year was...we're really going to have to keep on in spite of toddlers next year.
