Downtown Abby. Enough said.
(except I have to add that it fits in great with our study of the 20th century this year! and why the heck wasn't Season II available at Sams when I went looking for it?!)
*3*We are in the midst of a front yard make-over. It started because I thought Feeche and I could whip together the side path- a simple brick design that mimicked the front path, right? Silly me. The path goes to the north and west of the house has extended to a nice little bricked area for the park bench,. It will be lovely when it's done! Check back soon for pictures!
Tis the season of the tomato. Dried Red Tomatoes. Tart, tangy, delish.
When all else fails helping the kids memorize something gives me such an educational sense of satisfaction. Like we've really done something, you know? I've written tons on memory work- you can read more about it here, here and here.
*6*Memoria Press rocks. It is simple, systematic, and efficient. The kids love the projects and reading for FMOG as well as Christian Studies. The Divine Comedy is a bright spot in Feeche's day. Math, science, writing, memory work, for. language (our achilles heel the past 3 weeks). The days fly by and are full up.
Lego League continues to be challenging fun. There is so much to the program and the kids are learning so much about team-work, gracious professionalism, coopertition, flow charts, decision making, creativity and problem solving. The ultimate unit study! I am loving the maturity I'm seeing in the team. The pressure is on, however, as the first round of competition occurs in December!
the last laugh....
