Some highlights from our week:
Tru made it through another week of Writing with Skill. I am amazed that he has been able to work through this for five weeks now without much trouble. It is great that we have finally found a strong writing curriculum that works for him.
A sample of his writing, with drawings of course.
Tru studied Africa in MBTP. He worked on his African map, and he began reading A Girl Named Disaster.
Reading in his sister's room.
Tru was able to do Rosetta Stone every day this week. I love to hear his French accent.

He also had another golf lesson this week. He is taking what he is learning and teaching it to Decca. He is a great teacher!

Helping Decca with his follow through
Autry did a great job on an assignment in school this week, and I wanted to share it. She had to create a super hero and write about the hero. Her hero was Operetta, and her power is singing.
All about Operetta
Autry sang The Star Spangled Banner this week at an equestrian fair. She was nervous, but she did it. I was very proud!
She had fun at the fair. She even tried riding the bull!
I caught her warming up one day and taped it. She doesn’t think she sounds that great, but I disagree. I love to hear her warm-ups.
Decca at the beach. He is sporting another hand-drawn mustache. He is obsessed!
I don’t know why, but I don’t have many (actually I don’t have any) pics of Decca working on school this week. He went to homeschool PE, worked on math, continued reading Little House in the Big Woods, and drew tons of pictures and made some movies.
Also this week we managed to get out to Crystal Cove. The highlight of the day was Tru almost stepping on a rattle snake in the sand. Although there are many rattlesnakes at the park, we had never seen one in the sand so close to the beach. It was very cool! I only had my iPhone, so I didn’t get a great of a pic, but I thought I would share.
The snake in the sand
Decca set up a science lab.
The view never gets old.
The boys loved the little waterfall.
We spotted many small lizards. This one was maybe two inches.
And that is our week in review.
