Week in Review - 21 November

Monday we had a wonderful day in York, here are some of the photos. J has already asked when we are going next.

He is heading towards the Minster. 

Tuesday is our crazy day. We still have houseguests and while in many ways they didn't not disrupt our schedule is was a bit of a challenge to continue school while they were visiting.

So all of that made Wednesday the Monday of the week. Getting back into our routine was a challenge. There was a mini protest complete with signs stating "No school". It really didn't last long.

History - We were reading about Martin Luther this week. We finished the 1st quarter. Time to find the test and see what we remember.

Science - I was amazed at how J remembered the cell cycle. I had some cards that I had made and mixed them up, asking him to put them in order. He got it and it had been a week. I might need to do more things like that. I think just the process of drawing it helped him to remember it and understand it.

It was one of those weeks. On Friday morning I fixed a coffee for myself while we were doing school. I love using these cups and having a saucer with it makes me almost feel like I am in a coffee shop. I needed that feeling for a few minutes and then I was able to make it through a bit more of the day.

Some weeks it is an accomplishment to make it to the end of the week. I felt that way this week though one student had half their work to finish today. That was a result of not getting started and not focusing.

I am thankful for the weekend.

  1. I can't decide which is more appealing, the Minster or that perfect cup of coffee! Loved reading about your week.

    1. It is a hard decision. There are a few coffee shops near the Minster. Come visit, we will take you there.

  2. York looks like a place I need to see. :)

  3. It's so fun hearing about your weeks on English soil! Are you enjoying living over here?
