Our Week In Review (June 22-27)

I was chatting with my sister in law the other day.  It had been very hot where she is in North Carolina, but so far in SW Arkansas we really had not been.  We have had a LOT more rain than usual over the last several weeks but had started drying up.  Well I spoke a little too soon because we did get into the upper 90's this week with heat indexes going up over 105.  To beat the heat, we try and get outdoors in the morning and then stay inside until after supper when they go swimming again.

Monday we had archery.  We have moved it to Monday mornings and practice between an hour and an hour and a half.

Tuesday morning we did some work in the garden.  It is growing very nicely but of course the weeds are growing as well.  The children do not mind pulling weeds.  They think it is fun :)  It seems like the fire ants are worse this year and I am constantly battling those nasty little creatures.

Wednesday we did not have anything special going on.  Just swimming and hanging out at home!

Thursday morning we had a 4 H Nature Walk and Talk Workshop.  It lasted from 9-10:40 or so.  We stopped by the playground for a little while, went to the library, met daddy for lunch, and did our grocery shopping for the week.  After that we stopped and picked up our new chickens.  We were down to 2 hens and two eggs a day just is not enough for us, so we bought 3 more.  One of our rabbits got out a few weeks ago and never returned, so Nick needed a new rabbit.  The family we bought the chickens from had some baby rabbits so we got one of those too.

Friday morning we had to do some rearranging of animal pens and I have to tell you it was hot already!!  Then we had an appointment in town and some errands I did not get completed the day before.  Friday nights are pizza and a movie nights which has been a tradition for about 8 years.

We did do some school as well this week.  Lily and I finished up the first folder for Andrea Carter's Tales From the Circle C Learning Lapbook.

Nick has been continuing to work on Cursive Logic.  That review will be coming soon.

Anthony and Christian completed lesson 24 in All About Reading Level 2.

We have been learning about Ancient Egypt.  We have been very busy this week working on Home School in the Woods Passport to Ancient Egypt.  This week we made some Egyptian accessories, mummies, and canopic jars and organs plus made a few items for our lapbook about these topics.

Happy Homeschooling!
