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

Another Friday is upon us. For some reason it seems that January is going slower that previous months. It could be because I have been trying to make our homeschool run more smoothly than it has been, and also because I have a list of things that I would like to do that seems to remain untouched.

How was our week? Well it was overall a good week.

We've gone through our regular subjects: Math, English, spelling, science, geography and even Reading.
Zach has been resisting reading from his reader,s (BJU, which I really love), because he does not like fiction for one, and because he finds it too long. So I have not been forcing him too hard because he reads plenty of other things and because he reads very well. But sometimes I try to still make him and have him do some form of narration about it.

This week we did something different for our science as I was not able to print out the next unit of the classic science that we use.

We kept on with our circle time
as well, (the post on it got finally done). Sometimes it ends up being when we do our morning devotion ritual, which normally happens at the breakfast table.

This week we also had a trip to the Science Center which was compounded with a playdate with friends.

This week I have also finally followed through something I have been wanted to do which is having a time of audio book listening. I had scheduled it before dinner, while or after clean up time, but somehow it never seemed to be happening. Finally this week we've done it. They've listened to and enjoyed:
I Stink!
Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel 
Choo Choo
Caps for Sale 

Here are some more pics of what they have been up to:

Building an apartement building

Building a house

Some art:

Our police station and jail:

The hospital:
Some train time

The kids new addiction on top of everything else, is which they found on their own.

And that's it for this week's highlights. For more Weekly Wrap hop on over @ Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers.

Have a great day,
