Our homeschooling summer school week was relaxed (as summer school should be.) Only B and E had places to go and they didn’t need me to take them. I enjoyed my time at home working on the plans for our everything American history studies starting in September. I also had some awesome opportunities to share homeschooling ideas with a few ‘newbies’.
We have been picking peppers and tomatoes daily from our homeschooling garden science project. We’ve had the privilege to share some too!
Not all is well in the garden. A month or so ago, the two year old neighbor uprooted and broke one of our plants. We re-planted it in hopes that it would be fine. It looks sad, but still has tomatoes growing on its only green vine.
E17 was in the kitchen this week. This newest recipe was a huge hit. Sauteed steak, mushrooms, and onions stuffed in a pepper half and topped with cheese and baked. She also made yummy potato wedges to go with.
Z and J have started a new chapter book series, Cork and Fuzz by Dori Chaconas. I’m impressed with these tales of an unlikely friendship and I’m happy the boys are enjoying them. We will be checking out more of them soon. Our local library has the entire collection.
