Weekly Wrap up! Vacation

My husband is on vacation this week, so no actual school was done but we did have some fun. Went camping Sunday and Monday night at Harris Beach State park. It is on the southern Oregon coast and about 20 min from the Redwoods. We stayed in a yurt and it was really fun. Here are some pictures of our trip.

Weekly Wrap up! HOD

We did it we made it through 10 weeks of school! School was fine this week, but it seemed to be a rough week around here. I think it was mainly me having a bad attitude, and I'm really glad that next week is our vacation. We all need a break and a refreshing time. When I uploaded all the pictures it turns out we did have a good week after all. Buster was really excited about Latin, and told me he wants to do all the books they have about it. Buster studied weight for math this week, and thanks to my mom we had a scale to use. He also finished George the Drummer boy, and started a book about George Washington. Sweetpea started reading sentences in Reading Made Easy, and doing some copywork. So for your enjoyment here are some pictures of the highlights of our week.
The boys started guitar practice!

Making a starfish!

The kids blew paper boats across the table to learn how the Mayflower moved. I also blew from the side to show them how they got off course.

We made mono prints for art!

This was really fun!

We had a tea party! It was Sweetpeas Idea, and a fun way to practice table manners.

How lady like!

Cuppa tea!

So handsome!

Sip of tea!

Music class!

The boys had a jam session!

Sweetpea did her first copywork! I made this copybook to go along with her Reading Made Easy lessons.
