For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Weekly Wrap-up

I am back in  the Weekly Wrap-Up theme hosted by Kris @ Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers, as we just ended our week back home. It has been an easy going week with unpacking, re-arranging, laundry and re-adjusting to school.

This is our 6th week in school. We were able to complete our English and Math as scheduled for the week, which is a relief, no lagging behind! We were even able to fit in our history and science chapter. I enjoyed Zach's questions while reading about the time of the flood and after in our History for Little Pilgrims : "Why is there still sin?" and "How did we come alive again?"

Violin is back on track as well with Zach's first group lesson for the year today. I was quite happy when I saw that in in his class of 4, he was the most advanced, when he was the one who started last (except for one who has just started a couple of months ago and probably should be in the previous class).

The biggest thing this week was getting to know our new toy and family entertainment: our Wii. My parents graciously offered us one and we purchased it while on vacation 2 weeks ago. It has been a big hit with both the kids and us. Somehow it tires them out, for which I won't complain. It is certainly going to be used as an incentive and reward for diligence in doing school in a timely fashion and violin practice (that's aside from exercise for mommy!).

And of course lots of constructions as you can see on the pictures with the trucks!

Have a great day,

We enjoyed History for Little Pilgrims! It was a nice overview.

Jealous of the Wii! My brother & his family have one & my kids love to play it when we go over there.

Yay for the Wii. We really like ours, it's so interactive. Of course I like making the little people to look like family members. I could do that all day :) said...

Isn't the Wii so much fun? I just wish someone would come up with some homeschooling activities for the Wii! A little galloping the globe, maybe?

Oh, my goodness, we love our Wii!! I love that it's so easy for *me* to figure out and that almost the whole family can play at one time. We love the bowling and tennis....and Rock Band!

Gotta love the wii! It is a great thing. So glad to hear that violin is progressing too. Thanks for sharing your week!

My daughter has recently started mentioning that she would like a Wii. Oh, look, right on schedule. December is just around the corner.
