Monday was a day off from public schools and my husband ended up off work so we took that day off of school at home too. We did watch Martin Luther King's I Have a Dream Speech on Youtube.
Week 21 in our Homeschool
Bible: We read 3 lessons in the 10 Minute Bible Journey from Master Books.
Read Aloud: We read 3 chapters of the YWAM biography on Ernest Shackleton. In the evening we finished Prince Caspian and have read the first 6 chapters of Dragon Quest.
P.E.: We did two days of Family Time Fitness.
History: We finally were able to put together the Folderbooks for the MOH Vol. 1. Setting them up took a little bit of time. Then we completed the ones for the first set of lessons ( there were not any for the second set of lessons (4-6.) We also read the lessons for Week 3 (7-9) and they made ziggurats out of LEGO.
Science: We completed our activities for lesson 10 including the experiment that showed what would happen to our brain without fluid to cushion it. We used a plastic egg, real eggs, and corn syrup. I had store bought eggs (I had Nick grab some when he was at the store one day) and happily most of our chickens are laying again so we have plenty now :)
Music Appreciation: We completed chapter 25 in Music Appreciation I on George Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue.
Art: We did an Art Achieve Level 2 lesson called The Russian Fortress on Thursday after our internet was fixed and Liam was napping. He woke up before they got finished and needed some rocking snuggles so I did not get many pictures.
Spelling/Reading: The boys completed step 7 in AAS Level 6. Emmie completed lesson 30 in AAS Level 2.
Language Arts: Emmie did one lesson of Language Lessons for a Living Education. There are things I really like about this curriculum and some things I don't really like. One of the difficulties is that it includes spelling but does not even come close to the way AAS teaches it and I think it's confusing. She also did some IXL language arts activities. Lily did 2 lessons in Hake/Saxon Grammar and one day working on her Little House binder builder. Anthony and Christian watched the video for lesson 8 in IEW SWI A.
Math: 3 days of math in our various books. I just found out that I will be getting an opportunity to review Singapore Dimensions Level 1 A that I plan on using with Emmie. We have never used Singapore before but have heard good things about it and am curious to get to try it out.
Other Activities this Week:
Monday Nick and Alex worked on pre-sales for our big 4 H BBQ fundraiser next week.
Tuesday the girls had gymnastics.

Wednesday We had Kid's Club and Children's Choir. Lily accompanied the choir when they sang This Little Light of Mine.
Thursday Liam discovered LEGOs that his Uncle Christian put together for him.
Friday morning Christian and Anthony were being crafty. Christian made a prototype web shooter and Anthony made Thor's hammer.
Lily had piano and we had our Nature Seekers 4 H Meeting.
Emmie wasn't acting like herself at the meeting and right before bed that night started running a low grade fever. She had a snotty nose and her biggest complaint was a stiff neck. I kept her home from church this morning but she is already much better and got outside for a little while this afternoon to enjoy the beautiful weather.
I hope you had a great week!
