Homeschool Wrap Up Week 26

Bible: We finished Know Who You Are, Live Like it Matters.  I ordered the Elementary Apologetics curriculum from Master Books for us to start after spring break.

Read Aloud: We read 3 chapters from Brady.

Geography: This week we studied Mongolia.

History: We read Lesson 2 of America's Story Vol 2 on the Story of Abraham Lincoln Part 1.

Music Appreciation: We completed lesson 4 of Music Appreciation 1 on Bach and the musical concept of Tutti.

Math: 4 lessons completed in MLFLE.

Language Arts: Anthony and Christian completed 4 lessons in Readers in Residence on Winn Dixie.I ordered Basic Language Skills from Master Books for Emmie to start after the break.

Spelling/Reading: The boys completed Step 9 in AAR Level 5.  I did not get to AAR with Lily this week.  Emmie completed lesson 41 in AAR Level 1.

Science: We finished lesson 1 in Apologia Anatomy and Physiology.  We checked on our lab experiment from last week, finished our cell drawings, made a cell mini book, did some vocabulary notebooking exercises, and built a model of a cell.  That was fun!

Other Activities this Week

Monday we had the 4 H cooking contest.

Tuesday the girls had gymnastics.

Lily is teaching Liam some piano.

Wednesday was Kid's Club.

Thursday we had piano, parent teacher conference at the school, ballet, and Lily's birthday!

Friday we had pizza and a movie at Chelsea's house.

Saturday Nick took himself to do some yard work for a couple from our church.

I was outside reading for a little bit and heard a very loud baaaa in my ear.  The children decided to take the goats for a walk....

It was a rough week. Parenting is hard.  Homeschooling is hard.  Some days/weeks are harder then others.  I really, really felt defeated this week by a variety of things.  On the day after my hardest day I opened up the Bible study to do for the kids and the verse it was focusing on was Galatians 6: 9" Let us not loose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary."

Next week we are on spring break!

I hope you had a great week!

Happy Homeschooling!
