Latin/Latin Dates

Question
Michael, I was wondering if you could help me translate the following dates into Latin - in word form, not numerically, like how you would say it in conversation form.

June 30, 2001
November 26, 2002
December 30, 2005
October 14, 2007

My children and I (homeschooling mom) are beginning Latin and are curious how you would say these dates in a conversation (meaningful dates to us). Thanks so much for your help!

Answer
In the current calendrical form, these would be rendered in Latin as:

June 30, 2001:      Die tricensimo mensis Iunii anno bimillesimo primo
November 26, 2002:  Die vicensimo sexto mensis Novembris anno bimillesimo secundo
December 30, 2005:  Die tricensimo mensis Decembris anno bimillesimo quinto
October 14, 2007:   Die quarto decimo mensis Octobris anno bimillesimo septimo
