Been a rough week for fibro. My friends are suffering too. This fall weather is pretty nasty on things like this. We have been very busy with projects and various programs that the girls are enjoying. They are loving art classes this year. So we are really centering around art and I am trying to keep all projects and classes flowing together and not bouncing too much information at them at once. The information is not going to help them without making sense to them.
I have made a couple more adjustments in curriculum for Joey. He's not enjoying the Top Secret studies, and he's not getting anything out of them. So we will be creating our own studies in the area of World Geography for Joey. Also going to be putting together some units on the election process and he wants to learn about the court system. So we will be utilizing the library alot. He seems to learn well this way right now, so we are going to go with what works. It's a lot more extra work for me, but since technically I am responsible for his learning...it's worth it.
Places we have been going....
We went to the Art museum and we also had the art class that I teach this week. I wasn't feeling well Tuesday, so we had to cancel our Science Museum trip. We also went to the Symphony. We have been to the park enjoying what may be the last of the warm weather of this year. Lydia has been playing outside a lot too.
What I have been cooking....
Froze some stuffed green peppers and chicken meatballs this week. Also made up a new chicken fried rice recipe. It was super yummy. I attempted rice bread which didn't turn out great. So will try again next week.
What I have been reading....
Still not reading for fun...I know it's sad. I am reading so much for the kids for their various curriculums and clubs, that I am reading. Just not what may be my first choice. But I have gotten a better knowledge of Paul Revere and Thailand!
In our homeschool this week......
Lydia had gymnastics.
And a picture of me.
Lydia working on her phonics.
This experiment shows how fast gas particles disperse in the air. It's baking soda and vinegar with a candle burning.
The oxygen has been cut off. There is none left, because the chemical reaction from the vinegar and baking soda have cut off all the oxygen in the bowl. Thus it breaks the triangle of what a fire needs to burn. It took about 4-5 minutes for the bowl to clear in order to relight the candle. It was very neat!
We had American Girl Club this week. This was our last meeting for Cecile and Marie-Grace. Lydia and I are almost done with the books, so we will have a post next week with all that we done with this book series. The book store that is allowing us host our club there has a stuffed bear that they hide and if you find him, you get a free book. Lydia found Uka.
Linking up with other homeschool moms at Homeschool Mothers Journal.....Hope everyone had a wonderful week!!!
