Below are the goals I told you we had in January. We got to some, but not all. We are still working on Titus. Again, I think it's my slower mind that's having a hard time memorizing. My 18 year old son has it and the rest of them have all of Chapter 1 through about verse 10 pretty well. My now 4 year old (February birthday) can sing the Preamble to the Constitution along with the rest of the munchkins, and myself. We have the morning Bible reading down to a science, but sometimes we only get 3-5 days of evening reading in. We play catch up with for the days we missed so that we stay on schedule. I marked through the finished stuff. We didn't do all the reading schedule, but we read a lot of other books that were not listed. If I have time tomorrow, I will list our January reading.
