I feel kind of silly calling this a homeschool wrap up, since it's been a weird week for us, and I don't really have much to show as far as homeschooling goes.
Tuesday, Hannah had her annual eligibility review to prove that she's still "disabled."
You know, just in case she grew limbs during the last 12 months. I'd blow it off and let her enrollment expire, but CCS pays for DME, which is a lot of initials that saves us a ton of money. Prosthetics are expensive.
It's not very often you hear your teenaged son say, "I want to be an African woman."
Josiah was teaching Katie how to be a redneck. Food on the face, and a camo hat, and she's still cute.
Hannah started on XtraMath.com. (She goes back to school the first week of February.) I've got 4 kids working on it now. Brianna has progressed to the next level. It's a great, quick review for basic math facts, and it only takes a few minutes every morning.
Speaking of computer, we have a very cool review happening around here now.
I can't wait to tell you more about it later.
This week we read the book of Ruth in the Bible, and did the Ruth section in Write Through Ancient History. Our next work in that book will be the story of David & Goliath, which isn't for a couple of weeks.
We're still working on memorizing the 23rd Psalm, reviewing the 10 Commandments and the books of the Old Testament. I love that they're getting building blocks they'll use for a lifetime.
The weather has gotten up to 70 degrees here lately, and I'm loving letting the kids play outside again more often.
But sometimes, you just gotta sit at the table and do your spelling work. Doesn't he look thrilled? I put him back into Word Building paces this week. Jack is my reluctant reader/speller. I had him take the placement test, and we're working really hard on building his reading/spelling skills. I like A Reason For Spelling better, but it wasn't working out for us. Hopefully, we'll be able to switch back to that at some point.
Starting to think about what next school year will look like. Next month is registration at our private school, so I need to get Brianna in for her test/interview soon.
Paul took these 3 on a field trip to the aerospace museum today. They had a great time. Eli is totally into aircraft right now, so this was especially fun for him.
