This was a week of an Unschooling style for us. I didn't want to call it a complete week off, because the kids do not handle that well. Everyone was supposed to work on their books. And the girls worked on badges.
I played with my new camera. Caty spent some time earning extra points about pets for a badge...she is learning how to take care of our hermit crabs we go when we were in North Carolina.
We worked a lot of first aid this week. Lydia is working on a splint idea here with a tongue depressor.This was an old 4H project I was showing them on how to use a coat as a sling.
They made first aid kids that we can travel with.
Then one day we made fairy mud. It started out as a microwave Ivory soap experiment.
We dissected the unhatched quail eggs to see if any of them developed. None of them did. One seemed to have a spot that appeared to be a possible start. But this batch was completely unsuccessful.
The boys did some reading this week. They didn't do any structured studies. They have next week off from structured studies also since we'll be heading to Washington DC with Daddy.
We did horseback as usual. This is the girls favorite activity. If they had to give up everything else they would, just so they could continue to ride and take care of horses. We love the Stables we go to. They are great. And after riding, the girls are so much more pleasant! I wish I could afford for them to ride daily!
Hope everyone has a great week! We'll be posting updates from sunny DC over the next couple weeks!
