Weekly Wrap UP 8/10/18 -- Summer activities continued

We are keeping busy doing some fun things as well as doing a bit of schooling.

MarioFan worked on his second Kiwi crate.  Assembling a hand crank flash light.

I have been quite impressed with the quality of the items.

MarioFan was able to follow the directions with minimal help from me to assemble the flash light

HE had to problem solve when the light didn't come on but he was able to figure it out

It works!!!  He was pretty proud of himself!

 We had our first Spanish private tutor with Outschooling.  It went very well and I am probably going to continue through the school year along with his coop class!  The more practice he gets the better off he will be in the end with learning an new language!

Firedrake decided to try a Dungeons and Dragons class with out schooling!  She loves it!!! We as a family having been trying to learn the game and began playing it at home.   I have tried to capture a picture playing online but she shuts her bedroom door while online:). 

We are continuing to volunteer weekly for about 1.5 to 2 hours at a local animal shelter.  Our job is to basically social with the cats and/or walk the dogs. Occasionally we help with cleaning, washing dishes and folding laundry.  

Firedrake has found a senior Cat that she just loves and looks for her every time we go:). Harriet is the cat's name and she has a tumor so is unadoptable.  She is so sweet.

We have been going to Six Flags weekly for our FUN day.  We alternate between going for the rides or the water park!

I have been working non stop on getting my lesson planning finished.  I have gathered all the supplies and completed all the art projects MarioFan and his friend are going to be doing for the first semester during coop!  Total of 15 art projects completed so far.  There will be some that are quite challenging but hopefully fun for them to do!  This was a huge weight of my shoulders.  Now I can take my time working on art projects due next semester!

Next week Firedrake returns to High School!  I will slowly start to add more work for MarioFan so we are at full load by the time coop starts in 3 weeks!

  1. Sounds like a great summer. My son used to enjoy tinker crate by Kiwi. Good job on having all of those art projects planned. I am impressed. We start slowly on Monday.
