Highlights This Week...
Laughter for one, when they both wanted to ride in the front seat, which of course did not happen! But as far as homeschooling-life goes, we:
Enjoyed another episode of Cosmos
Read a few more chapters in The Wind in the Willows, and we all agree, the language is just beautiful
Made some good headway in math
Enjoyed a chapter in The Complete Book of Marvels, where we traveled to the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus (though in the book Halliburton referenced it as the "Temple of Diana", which would be Roman, not Greek, as my kids were happy to point out)
Listened to The Girl read out loud for nearly an hour yesterday - she didn't want to stop!
Watched The Boy learn some new defenses and attacks in fencing
Made two kinds of soup for a friend's mom (she's at home on hospice... cancer)
Worked on outlines and narrations/summarizing with Writing With Skill and Writing With Ease
And a Few Low-lights...
We need more consistency, but I had to take my dad to a doctor's appointment one day mid-week, and other bits of life got in the way
We did not get around to reading from either The Human Odyssey or Buddhist Stories
Not enough science this week, and we didn't do art either
The Girl is skating in a demo bout at halftime during a roller derby bout. With a little more training, she should be able to actually play in the next game!
Since it is raining today (which means no park with friends), The Boy will probably attend an extra fencing class
The Boy is doing volunteer work at the bike shop on Sunday with M
Family movie night will probably be this movie -- I had never heard of it, but M previewed it and thinks we will all enjoy watching it together
So I won't classify it as a great week, but it was pretty good. I definitely have some things to work on/toward for next week!
