HomeSchool Happiness

Woo Hoo!!!! I started Science with the kids today! They are pretty happy with it and so am I. We talked today about the history of anatomy and physiology, including how the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Hebrews all contributed to our current knowledge about the human body! Fun Stuff! I think my favorite part about this science program is the affirmation of God's work in all creation... in every detail of it! The kids had a great time drawing pictures of what they learned about in their notebooks, and writing down all the facts they learned.... while mommy finished baking daddy's birthday cake.

Birthday Cake... almost half gone before Two in the afternoon

Yesterday we had our best friends over for the afternoon! It was a blast! We went ahead with our plans to do art... what a circus! We made art and made each other look like art as well. Most everyone ended up with pastels smeared all over! The tornados we put on paper ended up all over us as well, and the floor, and the table, and the chairs, and well... you get the idea!

The girls have been working steadily on their writing and reading skills all summer, as well as their math through our online program ALEKS. We may actually get caught up by mid-year! We took several years to work on some problem areas that each of the kids had, so we're trying to catch back up on the basics! I am VERY proud of the progress they have both made in their deficient areas! All in all it's been a great week in the homeschool realm! Looking forward to our day at Co-op tomorrow!
