T. reading one of the book basket books on Felicity’s life
His other read for the day was a little heavier. The weather has not been so nice, and we have not been able to go out to explore for identifying plants, but we read a bunch!
Pointing out all the pictures was a lot of fun. They found the slavery pictures especially fascinating and horrifying, in light of our read aloud this week. Amos Fortune Freeman by Elizabeth Yates.
P. my high schooler, working away on his paper on the computer. His history book is sitting along side him.
“Do you think I am going to live through high school, Mom?”
T. working on the bed….
L. working on copy work
Today was a tough day! We are cramming a lot of knowledge into one week and I am not sure if we are going to retain it all. I am sure I am going to have to back over and review stuff, but that is a given most of the time!
T. doing sentence writing on a mini whiteboard on my bed.
His brother, L. reading his chapter book on the other end of the bed
Cheeky grins and looks…
Learning to put together a bookshelf…
I think it goes like this…
Got it!! Just have to screw it in!
And nail on the back! All done!!

Listening to the coach
Playing I spy with himself and his breakfast.
A great breakfast in his opinion!
Basking in the sunshine, doing copywork and reading bible memory
The gorgeous view near here!
See all the trees changing color?
We have been studying different types of animals. Today was Bats.
They practiced using noise and smell to find each other.
They were blindfolded, half of them and half had to make noise and held something that made a smell. It was quite a good learning experience!
Then we went to a homeschool basketball game.
It was a good amount of running and you would think they would be tired after that, but L. seemed all amped up!
However, we completed a lot of school this week. We crammed a lot into one week and I proved that I could do it! I just have to keep up the pace!
