We had an exhausting week this week. Homeschooling on the road is a challenge with special needs kiddos. We have a certain amount of work we need to be completing, all while visiting the sites and taking in the new area. Homeschooling while visiting New York City for 3 weeks has taken the exhaustion to a whole new level. It takes about 1 1/2 to go a mere 6 miles in the traffic. So commuting between places can take us 2-3 hours to go somewhere and come back to the hotel. The sad part, we can see the areas we have been visiting for a few days from our hotel! We are that close!
But we chugged through our work this week. In Science we learned about plate tectonics and reviewed the layers of our planet. I got the idea from here.
Lydia though took the cookies to a whole different level by attempting to build the models with Legos they got from the Lego store yesterday. I thought she did fairly good!
Caty got some random LEGOs at the store in Rockefeller Center. She built these today.
Our hotel room has a jacuzzi tub. Caty loves it.
Caty did a version of this....
Lydia liked the bunny......
We also watched a video on Jeff Koons
I wish I would've taken the time to paint with the girls this time. But I was working with the boys while they painted. I would've painted these. Can't wait to see more of his art at the art museums this next week.
I have been inspired to start a new series of traveling in your own state. I will be starting with our own state of Ohio next week. I highlight great places to visit and historical places to see.
Hope everyone had a great week!!! See you soon!!
