Our Week in Review (July 10th -16th)

This week we did not have very many things we had to do. Alex was gone for three days for Adventure Challenge Camp, but the rest of us had 5 days this week that we didn't have anyplace special that we needed to be.  It was very nice!

Alex has been waiting for years to be old enough  to go to Adventure Challenge Camp in Little Rock.  It is a 3 day 4 h camp for ages 13-15 where they do exciting things like climb a rock wall and go through a ropes challenge course.  In their spare time they can swim, fish, canoe, play basketball, and other activities.  He had a great time and would like to go again next year.

While he was gone, I helped Christian with Alex's animal chores.  The goats were incredibly nosey when we were cleaning out their pen.

I talked about the coughing goat to a man who has raised goats for a long time and he suggested we treat them for lung worms.  We also had to give the goats their CDT vaccine.  So Saturday I had to help hold down two goats while Alex gave them their shots and oral medicine (add that to the list of things I never thought I'd do!)  One of the goats took it better then the other, but Alex did a really good job.

We also worked on finishing the chicken pen.  We moved the birds to their new pen, and just need to get the coop finished up.

Christian, Lily, Emmie and I did some painting this week.

We also watched a lesson from Dr. Aviation, did some math, and learned the words for man and brother in Greek.  We listened to the first part of a new audiobook from Heirloom Audio called In the Reign of Terror.

Chelsea and Liam came and visited on Thursday and went shopping with us on Friday.  He is growing so fast!

I hope you had a great week!

Happy Homeschooling!
