Week 6

I fell down on the job of taking pictures this week!

Monday- after doing our regular school…we planned an evening event. We watched the movie The Robe together with some other high schoolers. It is interesting how many good messages are hidden in there. So many things about forgiveness, spoke to me. It is an old movie, so it doesn’t have all the special effects of today, but the message is so deep.

We also started basketball practice and I have L. and H. doing some extra ones as well. Hopefully it pays off when time to play comes!
We had to get the oil changed and I took advantage of the TV at the dealership and we watched Animal planet. They learned a ton about snakes!

Wednesday was field trip day!


Everyone waiting to get started!

We finished off the week with a very busy day.

My high schooler did  TAG- (Teen adventure group) which was listening to a speaker  from the local community college. He then did some algebra, completed his service project for the week which was packaging meals for a Meals on Wheels project, he spent some more time on math and then had a birthday party to go to. The other boys did history, science, etc. and then went to a science class up at the park. They had a great time learning up there!


I am tired out and ready for a weekend! We are halfway into Week 7, so that means hopefully, we will have most of our work done when we skip a week!
