Week 9 Weekly Report! Sorta? *Ü*

Ok weekly reporter friends! This will be a light report! I have been in and out all week, and we have been planning that trip to Oregon for our Lewis and Clark rabbit trail! The girls and I leave today! No guys this trip! *Ü*

I have a lot more news than I do work to post, so I will start with that. Are you ready!? I dropped our online co-op for now. :( yes, I did. It was a very hard decision, but one that had to be made. It wasn't made lightly either. My outside schedule and Christian needing more time on reading Rhetoric level reading assignments... I just don't see how she can keep up and feel she is doing a good job. I'm just not sure with my schedule being mixed up right now (new business) and helping her through Rhetoric level material would be the best for "her" right now. We started her out in Dialect material in the first unit and I was slowly easing her in ( history wise) to Rhetoric. This is so I didn't just thrust her into that level. Unit 2 is her time to jump head first in R level work, and with me going in and out.... I just need to make sure we go at her speed, not a groups speed.

Sorry that was long...

So, in TOG this week! We went back to week 7 on Tuesday. We began moving on in TOG, but since we are going to Oregon.... I wanted to review and revisit Lewis and Clark. *Ü* I am very excited for this trip! I am bringing the traveling trunk I rented from the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Traveling trunks for $35.00 per trunk to rent and that includes shipping! I will post pictures of it all after our trip. I know I said I would before.... but I was sidetracked then too! *Ü* We will sahre all about our trip when we get back!

No timeline, no map work. No other objectives. *Ü*

Science, RyLee moved on in her science, and made it half way through the lesson before we were side tracked! Same with Christian. Next week back on track.

Math, happened daily. That's just to easy not to do!

JAG and AG, we did 2 assignments this week. Still a favorite!

United Streaming, didn't use this this week. We kept getting Lewis and Clark dvds and Thomas Jefferson DVDs from Block Bluster! A few we watched were The Corps of Discovery, another on the life of Thomas Jefferson ( I cant remember the name off the top of my head.) and we received but didn't watch vol 1 to a series on the journey of Lewis and Clark. I think my girls are going to be sick of these people! lol... not really. Its still holding interest....

Writing, They did very little this week. No true objective. They only wrote in their notebooks or lap book folds ( for RyLee).

Bible Study, Christian and I completed Romans 3 this week. RyLee and I finished her week in Luke. I just cant remember where we stopped in Luke, but the week is done! I am so grateful for this time I have with each child in the morning. RyLee listens in to Christian and my study, and Christian has an ear towards us ( RyLees time) as well. Keeping us all talking and sharing. This is the best part of my day!

Spanish, we continued trying to speak our 2 weeks worth of vocabulary. Basic sentences. We even went to Azteca this week and tried our best to use what we knew. I'm thinking that wasn't much since we were laughed at(with) A LOT! *Ü* But hey, it made for a good time and they were impressed we tried! No written work, just trying to cement what we know and use it! RyLee was included with this. We actually keep our Spanish/English dictionary with us ( Christian does) so we can look something up if we need to. Its almost game like. Fun!

Latin, well, Latin didn't happen for me this week. Although I looked at it twice! That doesn't count does it? :( ahhh... Lee my friend... I will be right on it next week! Hold me to it!!!

I mentioned last week that Christian was going to be baptised. I posted a few pictures below this post. It was such a great day! It really was. I am so grateful for this opportunity I have to be with my children and watch them grow. sigh.... I love it.

Again... I always feel like I'm missing something.... I hate that feeling. I have no pictures this week. Just words. *Ü* Cant wait to see others weeks! Have a great weekend!

Thanks for posting your homeschool day. Great idea.

Thanks again for praying for me. This morning I posted an update on my valley to mountain journey.

I saw your post earlier about your DD's baptism. What a wonderful day!

I think any week where math gets done every day is a successful week. :)


Cynthia said...

It does sound like a fun week. Have a great trip. And congrats to Christian on her baptism.

BTW, I have a family connection to Thomas Jefferson. Tom and TJ are common names in my family.
