Third Weekly Wrap-up in Logic Stage Investigations of Early Modern SOTW

The Logic Stage of Classical Education is over half way done, and there are still mountains to keep climbing.  Saxon math 8/7 is vexing G1, but he endures.  Cursive continues to interrupt G3's progress as well as doing math in ink instead of pencil (I just shake me head in disbelief).  G2 gets most stuff in our weekly assignments done in time to do fun reading from the Christy Miller series.
