Homeschool Wrap Up Week 13

Well if you read my last week's wrap up, it ended with Anthony complaining about ear pain and taking him to the doctor Monday morning to find out he had a severe ear infection.  That poor guy pretty much just slept off and on on Monday and stayed on the couch pretty much the entire week, giving him the week off of school, except for listening to me read aloud.  His ear started draining Monday night and is still draining a little bit today.

So with the doctor appointment Monday morning we did no school work in the morning.  After lunch we did our Bible lesson and read a chapter of George Washington True Patriot and read through Lesson 13, The British are Coming in America's Story.  Everyone but Anthony did a Math lesson, but since Anthony and Christian work together on spelling and Readers in Residence those were skipped for the week.  Lily completed All About Reading Level 3 and Emmie finished a couple of lessons in AAR Level 1. 

Tuesday we started memorizing the poem Trees by Joyce Kilmer.  We completed another Bible lesson and read another chapter of George Washington.  I read through lesson10  in Science in the Age of Reason on Pierre Fauchard the father of modern dentistry.  We did some math in the afternoon.  I had hoped to get an art project in this week, but it didn't happen.

Tuesday Lily and Emmie had gymnastics and Nick had youth.

Wednesday morning at church while waiting on Nick Christian and Anthony watched the rest of the lesson in Thinking Like an Engineer that teaches you how to use the CAD software. When we got home we read two chapters of George Washington in the morning after working on poetry and Bible.  We did some math. Emmie worked on Reading Eggs and earned an award for completing another map. It ended up being another short day because the girls had an appointment to get their hair cut before heading over to Kid's Club. Anthony stayed in the parlor at church with a cotton ball in his ear.

And after

Did not get a pic of Lily's before but she just got a trim

Thursday we worked on Bible, poetry, and read a chapter of George Washington.  Then we did some geography.  Our country of study was Norway.  We also learned about the Gulf Stream.  We watched two episodes of Drive Thru History American History and everyone but Anthony did math.
Emmie colored the Norway page while listening to me read

Thursday afternoon was music lessons.
Lily was playing a Song About Cats

We had normal errands and grocery shopping on Friday minus Anthony and Christian who stayed home with their dad who had taken a vacation day. 

I had a super cute pic of Alex with the baby (we have him 2 days a week) but I told him I wouldn't post it.

Lily thought she would use her bike to take the chicken water buckets.  I thought it was funny because it's only a few steps away...

Anthony was feeling better Saturday.  It was super windy so he decided to fly a kite.

I am excited to have a week off this coming week!  The public school is off the whole week for Thanksgiving so I do not have to drive Nick to school in the mornings.  Gymnastics, Kid's Club, and youth follow the public school schedule and will not meet.  Art took the week off of work so we are taking the week off at home too!  We will have music lessons on Tuesday instead of Thursday.  As much as I love spending time with my children and taking them to their various activities I am looking forward to a little break!

I hope you had a great week!

Happy Homeschooling!
