Due to having littles in the house, we spent some time this week finishing up Norway activities that didn't get done last week before moving on to FRANCE!
Brianna knits while I read aloud.
Or sometimes one of the kids reads aloud while I'm working on something else.
Our Lapland felt squares referenced last week became ornaments this week, with the addition of stuffing, ribbon, and adhesive backed felt.
Jack stuck his felt to the table. Sigh.
Brianna made Swedish pancakes.
"I love this school year! A different dessert every week!"
The pancakes got several sticky thumbs up.
Starting a new country means coloring,
It's fun to see how many flags we've gathered in such a seemingly short amount of time. Jack was telling Annaliese which countries all his flags went to. It's neat to see how much he's learned since the beginning of the year.
When he took the geography pre-test, he only knew a handful of countries around the globe. (One was Spain, thank you ACE, lol!) Now he knows a dozen.
And this girl? Dang. She's been doing the JetPunk world map quiz. And she's good at it. Like, "I don't want to compete with her 'cuz she'll make me look bad" kind of good.
And these are their boxes.
We made a stab at Rosemaling.
Or not, as the case may be.
But the kids had fun, and they like them.
And that's what counts.
Bri's actually turned out quite pretty.
And here is Eli with his Nanoblock Eiffel Tower. He's always been a fan of Legos, and really liked this littler version. Looking forward to another week in France, and then we'll be starting Germany!
Thanks for voting for us!
