I thought I'd share a couple of the projects the kids have done from God & The History of Art recently. Above we have Brianna's Last Supper, and below is a two-headed dragon by Eli.
I have a feeling we'll be bird-walking more into the realm of dragons next year. They go so nicely with knights and castles, after all! I remember hearing that dragons are depicted with different numbers of toes in different Asian countries, so we'll have to check into that at some point, too. Eli has asked for these, which seem like a good supplement for next year. If anyone has any castle building material recommendations, please share!
Eli is working on his foreign language program. Review coming soon!
Couldn't resist sharing this photo bomb. That's cranberry juice, Paul's drinking. Really.
Our house heats very unevenly. It has large void spaces from the high ceiling, open floor plan thing we've got going on. Eli got the bright idea of doing some record keeping to find out what the difference in temps is in various rooms. It's 73* in the warmest room and 66* in the coldest room right now.
I made them a form to cut apart and write temps down. I love these impromptu learning opportunities!
Friday was the day to draw for the winner of the Unstoppable DVD.
Eli has the best hat for this.
And the winner is... Chantel! Congratulations, and enjoy your DVD!
Our bathroom remodel is chugging along. Flooring comes next. I'm impressed with how quickly things are going, given how long the living room took in our old house.
That's all for this week! We're still working our way through Children's Homer. Next week, we continue to learn about King David, and touch on Phoenicia. In about a month, we get to learn about early India, which should be a fascinating break from the Fertile Crescent area.
We're officially half way through the school year, and the daffodils will be making an appearance soon. About this time every year, I start to think I might survive this homeschool thing after all.
