Needless to say, we didn't have much of a school week around here. Caleb, Jo and Rachel all worked independently on their Math, grammar and phonics. I'll correct it this weekend and take Monday to go over anything they're struggling with. The boys continued reading the readers they started last week. I'm not sure what Rachel read this week.
We finished Carry On, Mr. Bowditch. We all really liked this book. For those who haven't read it, it's the biography of Nathaniel Bowditch, author of The American Practical Navigator (the "Sailor's Bible"). Nat teaches us that anyone can be educated if they have determination. I hope my boys realized how privileged they are to be getting an education and that they embrace the hard work that a good education requires.
I also tested the boys into Writing with Ease. Josiah tested into level one, and Caleb into level two. We will start it next week (if everything goes as planned).
A few pictures from the week (not school related):
Jada. You can tell by her eyes, that she still isn't feeling better.
The girls watching cartoons. The TV is to the left (Rachel is watching it). I'm not sure why the girls had their chairs facing that way, but it gave me a good laugh.
Tents the kids made on Thursday night and slept in.
