I cannot believe it is Friday already! It seemed this week flew by!
We read a lot from The Story of the world this week. I didn’t take pictures, but H. went out and did crayon tracing to identify the different tree bark in the yard. It was pretty easy since we already know what kinds we have.
They were laughing by the end of me taking these pictures as I was snapping them while giving my best teacher lecture of getting to work now!!!
I had a birth in the middle of the week, which meant not only did they get a day off, I also was easier on them while catching up on sleep! One more birth coming up too! They have been doing a ton of reading, well, L. especially! He is begging to read instead of doing school!
We had two birthdays this week….and had hamburgers for one special dinner and Lasagna for the other.
Earlier this week, we watched A Tale of Two Cities as part of the high school curriculum. It was such a sobering movie and taught some deep lessons. I am surprised though how it is hard to follow if people don’t know the story in those kind of movies.
We had play practice for 4 hours as well today, so I made the lasagna this morning and put it in the oven when we got home. I made the sauce last night, with the help of my son. This morning, my second son made a yummy peach coffee cake as well. I made the bread when I came home!
It was a great meal and a lovely week. With the birthdays and the birth, we did not get to try the African dishes suggested this week. However, they did not sound like something the children wanted to waste their peanut butter on. So we had peanut butter sandwiches instead….
