Week in Review - June 13, 2014

The exciting news this week is we got a car. Now we can drive to the supermarket and other places to explore the area.

We wanted a diesel, automatic that seats 7. We are used to automatic and didn't want to have to deal with manual and driving on the wrong other side of the road. Actually I think what is harder than driving on the other side of the road is driving from the other side of the car, your perception is off. We are thankful for our car. It is a Ford C-Max.

We have been working on our Greek Myth pockets. If you want some easy hands on projects, I suggest the Literature or History Pockets from Evan-Moor.  These have all the pages ready to copy. I usually cut the pages for Miss K and have been cutting Bob's as well as it just makes it go faster.

We were doing some weaving and reading the myth about Arachne. We should have had two different colours of yarn to show the warp and weft but we used what we had.

Bob finished Chemistry today. He had been doing Christian Kids Explore Chemistry. It gives a basic overview and is good for upper elementary. I have created a study sheet for him before the wrap-up. I want him to begin to learn to study by going through his notes and book. He understood the need and saw the benefit as he scored 100% on the wrap-up.

Miss K is continuing along with her work. I don't think she will finish any books but that is okay, we just keep going.

This morning I came downstairs and discovered that Miss K had fixed her own breakfast.

A glass of milk and a crumpet with butter. I might need to arrange the kitchen so she doesn't have to climb on a chair to get a plate and cup. She was quite proud of herself.

We received a package in the mail today which provided us with some entertainment for lunchtime. More about that later.

That about wraps up our week. We are working to finish our regular year studies and get ready for summer learning.

Our shipment arrived so next week we will open boxes that were packed 16 months ago.

  1. We need to buy a small car, too, as all we have is a 15 passenger van! Looks like it was a great week.
