What a wonderful time that first year is. It was a good decision to take
the time off to enjoy your new baby and recover. I have 4 children: 26,
24, 22 and 15. 3 boys and my "baby" girl. I live in Mount Kisco, about 50
miles north of NYC. My oldest graduated from Union (Schenectady) and is at
Cornell doing PhD. My 22 year old is at SUNY Albany.
I haven't looked ahead to Session 5 but, yes we have to do a lesson for
Session 4. I'll attach my lesson for Reasoning & Proof.
I'm hoping to complete this course this week. (I'm on spring break) I'm
also doing Insights into Algebra.
