Sometimes you hear your kids say something that really makes you question your reality like "Lets go sky-diving!" Skydiving? I would have hoped that by now I would have some clever thing to say (or even think) when stuff like this happens. I don't. I just sat and finished my coffee hoping we wouldn't be going to the ER. I remember skydiving as a child, only I jumped off the roof of the porch and the girls were just on the stairs - no biggie. And while I'm thinking of it, when I was a kid, we jumped rope with jump ropes, my kids seem to think they are some form of climbing gear.
This week we had a major break through in writing. CC wrote her own summary! She also started writing her fictional diary - she is spending the year studying as a Roman girl so the diary is from the point of view of a girl name Antonia in Herculaneum before Vesuvius blew. We picked names, a city, a job for her dad, and a time period (during the second Triumvirate).
We took the day off Wednesday to enjoy the weather. The girls spent the entire day outside. It was wonderful. They used the hose to build a river, created farmland and a village populated by animals.
Black Ships Before Troy. We restarted Music of the Hemispheres and worked on her memory work. Math is still going smoothly as we near the end of this book.
Visual Perceptive skills book, and we read How to Clean a Hippopotamus. Most of the week she struggled with a little cold so we spent more time snuggled on the couch than doing any school work.
Right now, CC is making marinara sauce for dinner, and LB is singing Home on the Range. I think it is time for the weekend. We've completed forty -one days of school.
