week 26 of homeschooling

getting back on track with our schooling and posting!
mon, feb 22:
· homeschool field trip to the garbry museum at willowbrook environmental education center in piqua. run by jvs students. i couldn't believe we've not seen this before, it's very cool! we toured an early 1900s town square with a bank, one-room schoolhouse, a blacksmith, dentist, creamery, etc. we also saw how they make maple syrup. and the kids of course loved the covered wagon, after reading so much about them this year. great field trip! pics below.
· gym class was moving allen's weights and bench from the basement to the garage (because he sold it). great workout! :)
· music class was setting up the electronic drum set he found on ebay. why yes, yes we are supposed to be purging. but apparently families *need* a drum set on the road, or i'd have nothing to complain about.

tues, feb 23:
· math and spelling tests
· math workbooks
· music class, the children of God singing taylor swift, interesting (and really, pretty good!)
· then appt day in dayton for lizzy and me, and a bit of shopping.
· for gym class, allen jumped on the trampoline with the boys. it must have been pretty serious because all three of them took a nap afterward! and at least two of them have bumps on their heads. :)

wed, feb 24:
· the usual with allen (he sticks to his schedule!)
· in honor of presidents day (that we kinda skipped), the kids went on a george washington webquest. so fun! i love that they can do it themselves, working together (fairly well).
· awana night

thurs, feb 25:
· the usual with allen
· they didn't love my plan, but it was a good plan. instead of watching little house, we acted it out. so we cleaned the house, with good attitudes just like laura and mary. well, maybe not *just* like them. :) (right after that we got a showing on our house. how cool is that?!)

fri, feb 26:
· it was a snow day for the local schools (and i had a few big deadlines looming), so we went easy. the kids cleaned out their toys and started deciding what to take in the RV.
· we watched a few episodes of little house, always educational and they still love every minute of it!
