Homeschool Wrap Up Week 22

We had a really short homeschool week this week.  I had a dentist appointment on Wednesday, the fastest lunch ever with my husband and then had to rush home to be there in time to take Nick to school.  Kid's Club was cancelled. Thursday the children had a dentist appointment, which is an all day thing.  The local public schools were on mid-winter break Thursday-Monday, which meant no school for Nick.  I had to cancel piano on Thursday because we wouldn't be back in time and then dance was cancelled because the teacher was ill.  Nick was thankfully better this week and back to school at home.  Alex started coming down with a cold Thursday night but it seems to be just a cold.

Week 22 in our Homeschool

Bible: We continued our study of Know Who You Are, Live Like it Matters.

Read Aloud: We read 2 chapters of Off The Edge of the Map.

History: We read chapter 24 in America's Story and also watched episode 1 of Drive Thru History Ancient History.

Geography: This week's lesson was a review lesson on Europe and Africa.

Math: The children did 3 lessons in MLFLE and Christian worked on memorizing his 3 times tables.

Language Arts: The boys started the next section in Readers in Residence on an On Your Own Animal Fantasy.  We had just finished reading The Green Ember and they wanted to use that book as their book and in hopes of moving through this section a little faster then the last two I said that was ok.  Lily did 2 lessons in Daily Grammar.

Spelling/Reading: The boys finished step 4 in AAS Level 5.  Lily completed lessons 22 and 23 in AAR Level 4 and Emmie completed lesson 36 in AAR Level 1 and several lessons in Reading Eggs.

Other Activities this Week:

Tuesday Emmie got to start back in gymnastics.  He toe is still bruised especially around the toe nail, but is not causing any kind of pain.  I made her wear shoes for extra support and take it a little easy, but she did fine.

Thursday after the dentist I took the children to see Paddington 2.  The girls love Paddington and even though it was not the boys first choice in movies the last 2 we have seen were definitely boy choices so it was the girls turn.  We were the only ones in the theater.  The absolute best part of my day was when something silly happened on the screen and Lily started cracking up laughing.  Those kind of things make me remember even more how thankful I am to be able to spend so much time with my children.  We do have to go back to the dentist next week.  Lily has a small abscess caused by a filling that is loose in a baby tooth so the tooth has to be pulled and she has to take an antibiotic for the next 10 days.  The children were all cavity free though :)

Lily did this drawing.  I know I'm a bit biased but I think she has some artistic talent.

I hope you had a great week!

Happy Homeschooling!
