So we got off schedule and fell behind. I then eased up on math lessons this week. I let the boys concentrate on math facts. We did manage to finish our science lesson on force. We really like Real Science for Kids. It's a great program.
We also tried to finish up our study of France. We learned where it is in the world and what continent it is located on. We talked about the language and watched some travel videos on Youtube and from the library. We attempted our 3D Eiffel Tower puzzle...and WOW!!! That is being boxed back up and resold on Ebay. Too frustrating!! So we decided to build the Eiffel tower out of popsicle sticks.
Our french meal of steak with mushrooms.
Souveniers from Flat Travelers exchange last year with a family from France.
This turned into such a nightmare. We got the arches together, but that was it. Joe and I gave up!
Here's our final creations. We just used popsicle sticks and styrofoam.
We had World Travelers Club this week. It was fun. I felt like a 3-ring circus though. Caty threw a tantrum. Joey and Brayden are on new OCD meds and they have not totally kicked in yet. So neither can control anything that they do. Made for an interesting couple of hours.
Lydia, Caty and I created our own Russian Nesting dolls. We used disposable cups, decoupage glue and tissue paper.
Joey learned more about Faberge eggs. We created those when we studied Russia in December. So he brought those to share. The History Channel did a great special on them. I highly recommend this special, it was wonderful! Brayden learned about Lake Baikal. It's the world's deepest freshwater lake.
Lydia went on a field trip to a vet hospital. She is now determined to brush Max's teeth. This should be interesting....please pray for our dog!
This year's school age Special Olympics Henry County Cougars Basketball Team! We are missing two players today for pictures.
We won today, but it wasn't easy. #12 from the other team and #25 both gave us a challenge!
We had our online LEGO club.
Brayden has fallen in love with this Mosaic set I got from Hobby Lobby. Great visual perception activity!!
With all the extra stress this week, we are falling asleep sitting up. (Caty fell asleep while I was doing my homework the other night on the kitchen table bench.)
But we tried to stay silly!!
Brayden thought this was hilarious! I had to take his picture laying on the floor. Yep it was one of those weeks!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!!
