This time around, I'm going to post the three written examinations, and then end with the oral examination. The oral examination is given in the evening with the grandparents. Each adult (four including my husband and myself) has a set of questions in their hand, and we take turn asking them. I have no idea how we will do this when we have more than one child needing to be examined, but it works for us for now.
In addition to the exams, E. will still work on two pages of math per day and continue with his articles for his various binders and his Bible reading. I think we will skip the written narrations because it would be too much writing for one day. He can pick that back up next week.
