*1*This week felt like a full and productive week of homeschooling. We have just a few weeks left of co-op, Landry Academy and Tutoring Center and will be wrapping up Latin, Greek, Pre-law, Copywriting, History, Creative Writing, Pre-Chem, and the younger girls writing (combo of IEW and WWE). We'll be finishing FF, WWS I, Alg II in May and June.
Feeche is doing a mock trial for pre-law over the next 2 weeks and has been having a great time writing and arguing his case. The on-line classes have been a blast!
My plan is to have finished The History of the Medieval World by then as well. We have about 80 pages left so I think it's do-able. There's been a lot packed into SWB's hefty tome and my goal for the notsolittles was to give a more comprehensive over-view than SOTW. They did recognize quite a bit from the hours of listening to SOTW that they've done. We've also been memorizing the orange VP cards (title and dates) and then the kids each take a card, read it, study it a bit and then I quiz them on their card. I love those VP cards. I just with their were add- ons (PaxRoMomma that I am).
Dh is working hard on our 2nd floor bathroom. It's been hydrobained twice, turning it a lovely shade of pea green. We have ordered tile. He has cut tile. We have spent a small fortune. It will be beautiful. We choose a 4 inch decorative strip called "Prairie Wheat" to off-set the simple pattern off-white tile we are doing the surround with. Can't wait to have a shower on the 2nd floor!!
Our car crisis's of last week have been taken care of and paid for. For the price we paid we could have taken a really nice family vacation at a resort somewhere exotic. Not that I don't love working vehicles.
Feeche had an absolute BLAST at Challenge last week. I love this part of Timothy Group's vision statement:
"We combine specific armed forces training with Biblical teaching to forge an elite warrior for Christ."
This one's for Mae and KB ; )
