Weekly Update

We started our week with a nature walk in the bird preserve. It was a nice day for all of us.

Decca enjoyed the wind.

Autry spotted these insects. She was fascinated by them.

The bird sanctuary is at the water district. Usually this pond is full of water, but it was dry. I wasn't sure why.

Autry worked hard on school and voice all week. Homework takes up a chunk of her free time, but it is not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

Kingsley decided to help Autry with her math.

Tru finished up his units in MBTP. Next week he will begin a unit on modern Africa which should be interesting, as he has not studied modern Africa before.

Tru spent time watching BrainPop this week.

He and I jogged every other day this week. On this morning he found a cool walking stick.

Tru is on week 4 of Writing with Skill. The work is getting slightly harder, but he is able to keep up.

Decca and I started two new books this week, Little House in the Big Woods and Native American Animal Stories. We studied the early history of America, and he watched Nightmare in Jamestown.

And enjoying Starbucks together.

Decca and I also made some butter this week to go along with his study of Little House in the Big Woods. It was a fun little project.

Shaking up the cream

He and I shook it for ten minutes. Then we had butter.

After he made and tried the butter, he filled out a worksheet. Then he went on to sweeten the butter with honey. He liked it much better.

And that is our week in review.

  1. I love all your pictures! Those are milkweed bugs, by the way (I’m sure you probably already know this) – there’s a large variety and a small variety of those that look very similar. It looks like yours are on a milkweed pod that has blown. You remind me that it’s the time of year to get out and take walks – thanks!
