And yeah, throw in head colds and fighting the flu and and we were all tired, all week long.
Thursday, our wonderful in home co-op did a trash art day. Everyone brought scraps of clean trash, fanciful stuff, scraps and glue and tape and whatever extraneous stuff they had lying around and the kids all created and crafted and had a blast. The day ended with a timed competition between the kids and the adults. The kids used a kid as an armature. The adults created a co-op mascot. His name is "Bert." Dontcha' love him?
On our "off days" we did a ton of Foundations, Essentials and other stuff. Stuff like Advanced Biology, math, reading. And more Essentials; copying charts, doing Analytical Task Sheets and practicing math drills and mental math.
And yeah, we worked in work and cleaning the house, watched a few flicks and talked books. Watched The Widow's Mite, courtesy of the same friends who invited us over last week to press cider for apples (ohlala- liquid ambrosia!); great singing, very interesting cinematography and great film chat in the bonus section.
