In Between Netanyahu and Nimoy

If you did not watch PM Netanyahu's full speech, do yourself a favor and take the time to d do so. Find it here . Then, discuss it with your kids. Homeschooling at it's best.
Classical Conversations was cancelled due to too many ill and inclement weather. We spent the day getting a ton done; Memory work, Essentials grammar, spelling, history and science. 
We are coming to the end of some things- the Spelling Book (Spelling U See- hands down a winner in my book!). Another review of Spelling U See coming up this spring! Wootwoot!

Our weekly co-op included another fun day of learning and fellowship- we love these families!. For a quick 5 min warm-up for Poetry, I had the kids write Burma-shave type ads. Great fun all around. Plus, ome fantastic poems in the style of Beowulf. We have decided to put together a book for the year, with each student submitting at least 5 poems. 3 of the older kids are in charge, working out budget and style, taking pictures, and getting it all organized. Good stuff! 

And then I slipped in mud and twisted my ankle but good, along with wrenching my neck and giving myself a terrific head-ache. Great friends brought dinner, prayed for me, visited and provided crutches. This falling thing is a decidedly bad habit.

The weather vaciliated from sub-zero to almost 50. We saw 8 robins in the yard this week and are determined that this heralds the beginning of a new season. Flower has big plans for gardening this year and has been busy cataloging seeds and discussing where we'll put the garden. 

Flower finished the Wilderking series this week. She absolutely loved it. If you haven't read it yet to your kids yet, do yourself a favor and do so. Good, clean literary fun.

The week ended with art class, math tutoring, ballroom dancing and Mr. A spending the night.
