WR: Spin Cycle

This week. We practiced the play. Rinse. Repeat.

We watched a little of the History of the World Mega Conference. The DVD on Babylon was excellent. A study of Daniel, the world of Nimrod and Nebuchadnezzar in an hour. Whew. Gotta watch it again with a notepad and pencil. I didn't care for the first 2 DVD's. This one made up for it. Cub listened with rapt attention; he loved that they talked about Nimrod's wife and had info to share about the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. I did geography puzzles with Flower and listened in. We are going to finish How Shall We Then Live Today. It is above and beyond excellent.

KB came through and figured out the music for the play. Major kudos to my techno-geek dd. It took waaay more time than we had anticipated. Isn't that how it goes?

Miss. Flower turned 6. I no longer have a baby or even a pre-schooler in the house. I'm trying to get over myself. sniff.sniff. She did AlphaPhonics everyday. ETC 4 is on syllabication and it's a real stretch for her. We are slowing down with that and doing 2 AP lessons a day instead.

Feche-Boy is reading Ecclesiastical History of the English People for Omni II and his history geek self is loving it. He had lots to share after todays double reading.

Spent lots of time training the puppy this week. Doesn't that count for school?
Did I mention we practiced the play? Performance is Saturday at 1 p.m. Central Time. We have props, costumes, music, choreography and actors. I think we're ready. It's been a blast. Can't wait till it's over. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

I've heard ETC 4 is quite challenging! Happy birthday to your 6yo! The photo of her below is adorable!

I love the puppy picture below. Absolutely training should count as school! With a play and a birthday too, you got a lot done! I understand, when I have an orchestra concert week, school goes down a notch (or 3.)

Good luck with the play!

Yes, puppy training counts!!
It sounds like you all had a great week and a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Miss Flower! I know how you feel since my "baby" is now seven.
I hope you have another great week. I look forward to hearing all about the play.
