Homeschooling Journey Weeks 32 and 33

 

Wow, what a windy and warm day.  Those winds sound pretty violent at times.  Hoping the power doesn’t go out…..yikes!  The past couple of weeks have been pretty relaxed.  We got a lot accomplished and look forward to more.

We ended up completing our Michigan map collage. They cut out pictures from magazines and painted the water.  As you can see in the pic, it turned out pretty great.  They were so proud.  We posted to Pure Michigan’s Facebook page.  A few random people have “liked” it, so that’s fun.

Sweet Pea (9.5) and Cup Cake (6.5) and working on their next projects.  Sweet Pea is doing a diorama presentation on Louisa May Alcott.  She has been wanting to do her for a while.  For world history, Cup Cake chose to do a project on China.  She is super excited about doing a recipe, learning the language, etc.  I can’t wait to see how it all turns out.  The research has been a blast thus far.

We are gearing up for end of year events such as a choir concert, gymnastics (GymFest), dance recital, and piano recital.  It will be fun to observe all of these events, but it will also be great to be done for the year.  Busy, busy!

I am excited to take Cup Cake to the Michigan Ballet Company’s presentation of Snow White this Saturday.  She is determined to become a professional ballerina, so this was perfect for our mother/daughter date as it is her turn.

I am also excited to be reviewing some curriculum coming up for all 3 girls.  I will keep you posted on those.

Well, this post is cut short as it’s storming so hard the wind and rain blew over stuff by my laptop and in the bathroom, yikes.

Happy Homeschooling!
