Homeschool Happenings: Week 13

This week…I am glad to tell it goodbye and look forward to the weekend!

King Academy was centered around learning one very important lesson this week: pushing Mom to the brink of insanity is not actually fun. Man, we had some tough days. Blessedly, things began to turn around on Wednesday, and we’re doing well today. It helps that I have my Friday helper playing with kids and cleaning the house!

In science, we continued our studies about the states of matter, volume, and density. We did a “speriment” (Emma) examining the densities of three liquids: corn syrup, water, and oil.

I’m really enjoying our history studies with Story of the World, volume four. We’re studying the period between WWI and WWII right now. I love the global approach, and I learn so much every week! The kids practiced writing in Arabic this week after studying events in Egypt, but I don’t have a picture of that.

And just because, here’s a picture of Seth after an oatmeal breakfast.

Linking up with Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers!

Homeschool Happenings: Week 12

Week 12! One third of the way through our year—wow! This week was over so quickly. We had a number of evening events, adding to already busy days. I wrote this post on Friday but didn’t have time to upload the pictures. So, hello Monday! And, Lord willing, you’ll hear from me again in a few days about yet another week.

Brooklyn finished Level 3 of All About Spelling this week!

We had our final free bowling outing of the summer program. PJ was able to join us, and he and Vernon were able to have a lane to themselves while I friend and I wrangled the other kids.

We went to a pumpkin painting party at the library and brought home three cute pumpkins, one of which has since disappeared.

We’re making rock candy for science—watching a liquid turn into a solid.

And somehow, Monday is disappearing. See y’all Friday!
