This was our first week back to full time homeschooling! It’s our 16th year of educating at home. We kicked off the new school year with waffles, (according to the special days calendar, it was International Waffle Day)!
No shirt, no shoes, no problem serving up a geography lesson.
We erased the ocean mural from our chalkboard wall. What a dusty blue mess! At least it cleans up fairly easy.
For history we learned about the explorers from the “Age of Discovery” as the introduction leading into our first unit study of the school year, “Pirates”!
Our first library check outs of the school year.
Z’s third day of the third grade!
A movie day with Veggie Tales, The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything, and a remake of Treasure Island.
J’s fourth day of the fourth grade! (Sorry about the blurred photo, but this kid was not able to stand still, nor the photographer, apparently)
These are the prettiest pickings from our science project garden this week. That’s not an apple, it’s a sweet red pepper. We harvested only a few tomatoes, but have dozens almost ripe on the vines.
I hope you had a good week and that the upcoming week will be even better!
