Sunday we had church, of course, followed by a ward luncheon. I was in charge of making sure all the food was brought, tables set-up, etc. In other words I got to order everyone around. 🙂 After the luncheon we changed our clothes so we could stop by the fair and pick up the chickens during check-out time. I was exhausted when we finally got home!
Our first week of school has been wonderful. We are starting off slow because we will be leaving for a short vacation next week but then we will really get into the thick of it all. The two oldest girls were able to do well considering their school books were slowly still arriving throughout the week. They are still waiting for their Language Arts books. K12 sent Language 3 instead of Language 8 for Bon Bon. We’ve been teasing her quite a bit about that!
The rest of the girls have been doing their math, reading, copywork, and language arts everyday. We’ve also been learning about mammals for science and will be doing a small unit study on Raccoons next week. Nothing big just something fun from the 2004 Copycat Magazine. Copycat is no longer being published. My mother-in-law subscribed online to them one year and saved all of their wonderful files. It is such a great resource! Cookie has been flying through her letters. She is so ready to read. She did wonderful remembering A, B, & C as well as their sounds. She is also doing very well in writing them. We won’t start history or geography until we get back from our trip next week. I’m really hoping to be able to give more detailed weekly accounts of our schoolwork starting two weeks from now.
