So I have to give a shout out to a sweet friend of mine I have made since starting this blog 7 months ago. Her name is Melody and she rocks it on her blog. In fact if it weren't for Melody encouraging me in the beginning, I'm pretty sure you would have never heard of my blog and what I was doing here. She totally got me connected in the CC community online world and I have been forever thankful. Anyhow, she makes this thing called a Cycle Flip chart, see here for Cycle 1 in case you haven't gotten one already.
And now she has finished Cycle 2 on CC3. So if you are member on there, I'd highly recommend getting on and getting it.
Here's what it looks like...
And can I just say for Cycle 1 I printed two of these, one to keep at home and one to give to my BFF. I lost the photo album for her and ended up finding it after I visited her, so I actually kept both and put one in my purse and one near my memory work wall.
I know I'm not a very good BFF...
I used this more than I can count, because it was a mini guide and it is so easy to carry around.
I bought a photo album from Walmart ($1.00) and doubled the cards in a 12 sheet book. It was perfecto and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
Also on her site she does a really great thing with emphasizing a missionary of the week, fun stuff with Geography, and much more. Her site is truly one of my favs.
If you are not a member of CC3, I'd strongly suggest trying it out, there are tons of great things on there.
Here are some helpful things I made for my wall and thought you might them for yours.

In case you haven't heard- I'm running a contest for a book that contains most of our Ancient History cultures, please know all you have to do to enter it is to comment on your favorite aspect of my plans/ and or our website. This is a small survey I'm doing as to see what is your favorite thing. I've only gotten a few votes, but would love more input from you.
Just think in terms of categories: Objectives, Detailed Book List, Corresponding Websites, Organized Supply List, Step By Step Plans, Background Information, etc.
What part would you not want me to change at all, or if it needs some tweaking, how?
Or you can review the plans / website as a whole, either is fine, just trying to touch base with what you love the most so I know how to either keep or improve those things.
If you are unfamiliar with my plans and would like to know more, Brandy at Half a Hundred Acre Wood did a review of them a while back. She was so very kind in her review and I think if I ever met her one day I'd love to take her out to lunch for all the support and encouragement she gave me regarding these plans. She was a true God Send, at the right moment.
If you are here, chances are it's because of her out of this world site!
Seriously, she is like a celebrity in terms of bloggers, when she first left a comment on my blog I freaked out and called all my friends...
ok, back to the contest...
Leave a comment, let me know what your absolute favorite thing is.
Just go to here and comment away! :)
Lesson 18 will be out tomorrow! More details to come...
I hope you have a great time teaching your kids this week!
