School happenings

We're finishing up Week 3 of our curriculum.
We're studying the United States right now, and one of the tasks was to choose one of several USA projects in the Global Art book.  Brianna selected the "quilt" project, but instead of gluing squares of fabric to a piece of cardboard, she actually sewed and quilted it.  I helped her use my machine to embroider her name in the middle square, and I helped with the binding, but she did the rest herself.  She's considering making another one with larger squares for Katie.

It has been such a blessing to have Paul home since the accident.  

Not just because the children have passed my math comfort level, and he can help explain things to them, but that is certainly a nice bonus.

Hannah's teacher expects a lot from her class.

Unfortunately, Hannah has a hard time with sitting still and being quiet and paying attention to directions.  She's had to "move her clip" (her class' disciplinary visual aid) about half the days she's been in school.  

The big kids' school has Edline.  Sam's first updates are an A+ and an F.  Hmm.  The F was explained as, "Lost the syllabus, and late to class, missed some of the time for the classwork assignment."  Sigh. I'm hoping he can pull himself together quickly and get used to the school routine before his grades effect his ability to play football.  

Next week, we will continue our study of the United States, and the following week we start learning about Mexico!  I've already added a dozen movies to my Netflix queue for us to watch, and we will, of course, pick up some books from the library, but I would love to hear any suggestions you might have for "must learn/craft/do" ideas regarding Mexico.  :)
