A large family, homeschooling, adoption, special needs, whatever strikes my fancy, sort of blog.

Our Week Before Valentine's Day
You know how I said we'd get more done this week than we did last week? I was wrong.
We actually ended up getting very little official school work done this week, due to distraction and illness. These are drawings the boys did of St. Francis.
The cat has been hanging out in the school room with us lately. I think he likes the sunbeam.
We've been listening to a great audio book, but it's kind of hard to take a picture that shows that!
Jack put the North American GeoPuzzle together, which counts as geography, right?
I was so pleased with all the geography the kids learned during our MFW-ECC year. I didn't realize they'd lose so much of it without regular review. I've been making more of an effort to include map practice lately. This year and last year, geography in our main curriculum has all centered around the Mediterranean Sea area.
We've all done a bit of laying around.
There's a cold running through the house. Unfortunately, it has hit both Paul and I, too.
Eli pointed out that last time he was sick, I got out a cool bug excavating kit for Jack to do. So, since we just finished up our Human Body unit in science, and we're getting ready to start Astronomy, I pulled out this solar system for him to work on.
I got mine from Amazon, but they're on Zulily right now, too. It's not finished yet, but he's plugging away at it in bits and pieces.
Miss Hannah had a Valentine party at school, and came home and shared candy with her brothers and sisters.
I dressed the girls up in their silks, hoping to get some good pictures, but we had an off day.
These were the best two shots of the two girls together, and there wasn't a really good one of just Hannah by herself.
This ended up being my favorite picture from all 40+ shots I took.
Here's hoping that next week we can get our groove back. --No, wait, everybody's off on Monday for Presidents' Day. Sigh.
