Our triumphs and accomplishments for Week 44 & 45
Ok...So I am a week late on this. We are actually in week 45. Things have been hectic. First we were having issues getting the Homeschool with Minecraft classes up and going. It was just a matter of getting all the new classes uploaded and ready to go. The house was a mess and I have not been feeling great, so it made it very hard for me.
Then we received the news that my father-in-law was very ill. So we changed everything to see him. He was seriously and passed away on Wednesday night. My husband is experiencing many different emotions right now.
We also have a big event to help with this weekend and the viewing/funeral for my father-in-law is Sunday and Monday.
All the running this week has taken a toll on all of us. Because we had some field trips early in the week that we had already been on. I think by next Thursday we may crash, because everyday for the next week is full of events. I know I may not be moving by next Friday.
Needless to say, it's been an unschooling week. We have been watching some videos on geology to go with our science unit. Joey has been reading his book. We played a couple math games and the girls are playing their new engineering game, Goldie Blox and The Spinning Machine
The kids have been playing Minecraft a lot also.
Last week though we had a good week of school.
Joey made us dinner of chili con carne.
It goes with his 4H Project, Food, Fitness and Fun We made a few adjustments and Joey even ate sauteed red pepper!!!
The kids had some "excavating" projects that they worked on.
Yesterday we made ginger syrup and made homemade ginger ale to go with our lunch. It was very yummy and 4 out of the 6 of us LOVE it!! I haven't had soda in ages. This was soooooo good!
It's been a rough week, but we are chugging along :)
Bring on Week 46!!
