If I were to look at our second week of school merely from what we'd accomplished, I'd say it was a disaster. Everybody was off on Monday, so no homeschooling happened then. I was sick in bed Tuesday, so no homeschooling happened then. Friday, Katie had surgery, so no homeschooling happened then.
Brianna has been playing the keyboard more lately, and in fact, changed from art to band at school last week.
Oh, the boys did draw pirate ships while we listened to Under Drake's Flag.
And math and spelling happened.
When asked what they learned this week, the boys talked about Julius Ceasar: "I learned that two groups of people wanted to kill him!" "I learned that Augustus Ceasar was Julius' nephew." Okay, then. I guess we did more than I realized.
In art, we learned about perspective and adding depth to a picture.
We drew train tracks receding into the horizon line, and Wally the Worm.
It's a good thing I can laugh at myself, because my example "artwork" always leaves something to be desired.
Looking forward to next week, we start homeschool co op tomorrow! Luke has appointments at the MIND Institute and at Shriners, as well as Picture Day at school. Hannah will be tracking off Friday (half day), so she'll be home for 3 weeks starting the 15th. It will be nice for Katie to have Hannah around the house to play with.
