Weekly homeschool highlights
I'm gonna try to write the highlights every week, just so I remember.
Let me see.....what did we do? Well, we did make our tissue paper flowers for our fiesta that we were supposed to do today. But we have had a couple of choppy weeks, so the fiesta will wait til next week. It didn't help that I didn't get my library books for Mexico til the end of the week. But, that's ok. In the winter, when we are stuck inside all the time, I'll have plenty of time to keep up and do everything at the right time.
We also tried out MAFA. (Masters Academy of Fine Arts) It meets Wednesdays from 1-4 all year long. The bonus is that I don't have to teach!!!I get an actual break every week. It teaches them art, drama, music and history all within the same century. This year they are studying the modern century. So they are gonna learn about the last 100 years. Both of my kids loved it. I was surprised that little man loved it. He is my anti-fun, anti-everything guy. But he was excited afterwards. So we are gonna sign up next week. The other moms and I will go out to McDonald's and let the little kids play while we talk. I won't have any kids to watch. Three hours of silence from my children. Music to my ears. :)
Today we went to the fire department for a field trip. My hubby did our tour. My kids love to go and look at the trucks. They probably could've done the tour themselves, they've been there a million times. :) But it was fun still. And we'll be there on Sunday for the open house.
What were your highlights?
