In the last few months I had stopped doing so many of the activities from Story of the World. I had started to feel they were rather irrelevant at times, and looked suspiciously like busy-work. The boys missed them, though, and so we have started doing them every week as we did in the past. They are definitely re-enthused by history which, at this age, is my main aim so I'm very happy to get the glue sticks out again!
