What a week! I thoroughly enjoy finding ourselves back in the swing of things, with next week adding back the final regular features of our homeschool schedule (ballet, gym and swim, and our monthly Keepers and Contenders club).
This week, we got lots of solid school work accomplished and had a lot of fun around the edges, too.
Started with a family trip to a butterfly house. If you haven’t gone to one recently, pack up your kids and find one before the cool temperatures end this fun experience for another year. The small structure we visited had about 250 butterflies, including I think 200 or more Monarchs. Beautiful images though with the contrasting and coordinating flowers.
For History with my kids I have switched to Mystery of History 3 for the time being. We might just stay there for the year. I LOVE IT! Review to come next month sometime. I don’t know why I didn’t buy this when it first caught my interest a couple years ago. Oh well, at least we can enjoy it now.
Remote control airplane outing with the students from the school we live at. First a demonstration of the planes and how they work. Servos, remotes, flaps, and lots of amazing details.
My kids got to even get their hands on a buddy remote and “control” the plane for a few passes and loops and rolls. Quite a treat.
- AWANA started, lots of insanity, but lots of fun for all the kids, too.
- Chicks need to go to the farm soon, but we are having a hard time figuring out how to say goodbye
- Listening to Felicity when out and about on audio book, a good story, and one we all enjoy
- Amazed at my four year old learning to read. I don’t know why I waited so long with my others! Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons makes it so easy.
Enjoyed part of Disney’s Earth for our family movie night this week. One segment which brought lots of shrieks can be found in this You Tube video, at least for now. Those snippets of family time that are somewhat hard to come be in this season.
This weekend officially starts soccer season and also holds the used clothing sale that I buy and sell at twice a year. Always looking forward to that!
Kind of an unorganized wrap-up, but kind of the way the week has gone as well. Productive, but all over the place!
See how others wrap up their week.
