Week #23

Monday started off with all sorts of fun, and we got to have a little visitor for the day. My niece was not feeling well, so came over to spend the day.
T. got a chance to do his reading practice while reading to her.

It has been really great this week to see some of my boys really get into reading the history books for themselves. This week, my third son and his dad sat for like an hour, reading through some of them.
My husband learned history in Russia, and much of history was very differently taught under Communism. He is often amazed and joins in on our history reading. It is new info for him!

We read a book about Martin Luther King Jr. as well. They were all a little amazed at how people could treat others that way, based on skin color.

P1070084Math time!! We have still been having issues with TT Math 6.

P1070090 L. has been very interested in the historical reference books we have around and has spent a lot of extra school time this week, reading and looking at them.

We had some fun in Botany, studying different types of leaves. Thankfully we had a house plant with a leaf that had turned yellow to talk about some of the experiments as outside is frozen.

It was a good week! We got a lot accomplished and I was dead tired. P. is away at a basketball game and we are recovering for next week!
