Where do you think you're going, Christopher Columbus?

She should have a fun year.  Our goals are to get skills cemented and start gearing up for middle school work.  Long division and fractions are going to be a huge focus this year as is learning to write well.  She loves Ancient Egypt and found the book on Hieroglyphics and would like this to be her foreign language that she studies.
