I thought it would be fun to do a weekly update through pictures only. Right? Isn’t this fun?
I can tell already that this is going to be a very random post with very random photos. The one above is of my daughter’s llama friend. He has recently grown a mustache, and I for one like the new look.
Now to get down to business. What has been going on here lately? Well we had a wonderful storm a week or so ago. I loved it because it was truly a downpour, something that is very rare here in Southern California.
I caught Decca working on a new composition on the piano. I love when he sits down at the piano for an hour or so and experiments with sound and rhythm.
And just because I know everyone is dying to hear another song that Decca has been working on here is Worlds are Dying Stars are Crying.
Speaking of music Autry has a concert and a competition next weekend. She has been working hard preparing for both. I hope I am able to get a recording of her songs to post on here next week. In the meantime here is a clip of her and her fellow classmates working on Swing Low Sweet Chariot.
Autry has also been on a Harry Potter kick ever since she signed up for Pottermore, so she created a paper version of getting into Hogwarts. Here is a page where you get to pick your animal. The choices are so cute.
I would have to choose the awkward owl for no reason other than to see the awkwardness.
Now that I have read back through this post I am worried about the possibility of any grandparents and/or other relatives reading this and wondering whether or not the kids have done any real schooling this week. To alleviate those fears I feel the need to state that yes they have done some school this week.
Tru began reading and studying Romeo and Juliet.
And Decca read two books of Scooby-Doo.
We started back up on our study of film history. I put this on hold for a long time because I lost the book we are using as a spine, but I am happy to report that it has been located and our study is going forward. Hopefully by the end of summer the whole study will be completed and uploaded onto my blog.
Also this week I was lucky enough to spend some one-on-one time with a great kid. I snapped this picture of him while we were driving around on errands.
And that is our (very strange) week in review.
