A Review of Last Week
Last week will go down in the books as a week that was filled with hours and hours and hours of preparation for the Indiana Vex Robotics State meet. I’m going to keep you in suspense on the surprising outcome for the NEXT weekly wrap-up.
Now initially, my Gabe pretended to reluctantly attend gymnastics class. There were a variety of reasons we wanted him to attend, the biggest one being he needed exercise that wasn’t with his brothers. He needed a chance to shine and thrive — and his sister loves to cheer him on.
We participated in our 18th week (and 5th year of Classical Conversations). The focus is now on orchestra. And much to my delight, we have this insanely educated mom share how the conductor makes his motions, what it means, and how the musicians sit in the orchestra pit. It amazes me how some people can just make complicated ideas, simple and understandable.
Naomi has been working REALLY hard and copying down all her memory statements and tracing the maps!
What About Reading?
I continue to be happy at having switched the boys over to The Logic of English. We mastered some latin roots, plurals, and all the spelling words!
Naomi is super close to finishing her All About Reading Level 2 . . . which is an accomplishment. She really moved through that book! I went ahead and ordered Level 3!
Science or History
It’s a fact that we all love Beautiful Feet Books, however, I’m not sure if we love our history or our science from them. Last week we focused mostly on history.
Consistency With Latin
We all love Latin. However, we are struggling to consistently watch our videos and complete the workbook.
This week had some fun highlights.
The whole family hustled and we made it to First Wednesday at our church. And it was pretty spectacular. Not that it was a show but that it made me think about how cool heaven is going to be, that changing churches was hard but I see God’s purpose in that for our family, and that God still does miracles.
We found a new coffee shop on our way home from the dentist.
We had a friend hang out with us the ENTIRE day to practice driving the robot. For some reason, my kids decided to do school at the table that day — which was odd.
They NEVER sit at a table to do school.
And Ruth continues to be amazing in all that she does.
As you can see I took a lot of pictures. If you follow me on Instagram — some of these might look familiar.
But if you do follow me over on my FAVORITE social media platform, will you say HI? I’d love to connect with you!
