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


This week was a nice fast going and relaxing week. I decided last week-end to move up our week off to this week as it was going to be a chopped up week.

Monday was Thanksgiving. Of course no school. We had some guests over and enjoyed a nice meal and time of fellowship.

Tuesday we enjoyed the outdoor and the fall weather. I did do some TOG as we still had some catching up to do. I thought I had escaped the TOG fog, but for some reasons I had been stuck at weeks 5 and 6. Hopefully we will be able to move on to week 7 next week. I also had them do some Math so as not to forget the work previously done.

Wednesday, we went to Ottawa. My husband had to go there, so we decided to make it a family trip and take the opportunity to visit some museums to which we have free access through our Ontario Science Center membership (you got to love these agreements). We all had fun, just were really tired by the end of the day. It is a 4-5 hour drive.

Thursday is our elective day, so that was that. And that 's also violin lesson day.

Today, well, we finished up our week 5 and 6 of TOG, did some Math and practice for the boy's talent show tomorrow. Zach is going to recite chapter 7 of Charlotte's Web ("Bad News"), and the two of them are going to sing "Do Everything Without Complaing and Arguing " from Steve Green's Hide Them in Your Heart CD. these were their choices.
