We had so much fun this weekend attending two fun local events that gave us some amazing family time!
|Our local botanical Gardens had a Chinese Lantern festival and it was beautiful--full post coming soon:)|
|Our tiny town put on a hot air balloon glow and it was fun to see--post hopefully coming soon:)|
This is the official full week of school for us and we are back to working five days a week although still maintaining a shorter days as I did promise the kids they could have a shorter schedule until Sept when coop starts.
As for school we have kept a busy schedule as usual. Firedrake completed another drawing with her art tutor that I think is very good...yes I know I am her Mother. This week she had her last private lesson and soon she will begin her art class in coop with the same teacher.
|She drew our Beardie--Isaac|
Field trip season has started up, we belong to a field trip coop and while over 70 field trips were submitted, we signed up for about 20. Last year I over scheduled and we often had to miss the field trips, so I am hoping we planned this better this year. Our first field trip was to a Recycling Center.
|We had a great speaker who was very enthusiastic about this topic--hopefully a full post coming:)|
The kids are working on creating a history poster to cement their knowledge of the events that lead up to the Civil War! We have been reading and learning about all of the events over the summer and getting ready to discuss the war itself. I hope to be writing about our process on this soon!
|The kids brainstorm with me on all they remembered from our readings and we wrote it down. Next we need to organize and start planning out our poster design! I was very please to see what they remember!|
Have a great week! Happy Homeschooling!
