Week 5 Report
This week went well, except it was spoiled by a little stomach flu that hit on the way back from the apple orchard. Don't you love the "I feel like I'm going to throw..." sentence that never gets completed? Yuck. But the booster seat got a well deserved washing, and I'm glad I had paper towels and a change of clothes in the car.
We didn't get to SOTW, but I heard laughter from the bedroom when hubby was reading from Fifty Famous Stories. That book is a definite winner. We decided that we were tired of stories from Serendipity, so we skipped to Hector Springs Loose. We didn't start Alexander the Great, but the story from Among the Meadow People was very good.
We did copywork one day from the Happy Scribe copywork sample. CC liked it, but said she preferred to just copy a sentence from her readings. The regular copywork didn't get done. We also missed science and art and haven't made our apple pie yet. Math went well, we even played with hubby one day. CC seemed to enjoy having Daddy play with us. She liked the 9 minuend game, but had trouble with the adding multiples of 3. We did that on the day she was sick so the trouble may have not been the math. We'll do more with that next week.
Co-op classes went well, but I was tired afterward. One of the kids in my history class gave me the best complement - she said "It was like I was really living in history times." That is just what I was aiming for. Now I just have to keep it up for 9 more weeks.
We will put this one in the win column. We didn't get to everything due to illness, but we did make progress and had fun.
