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

It's Saturday and time for reflecting on the week. I missed last week wrap-up due to a trip taken to Ottawa last week-end. So this will be a 2 week wrap-up.

The past 2 weeks have been quite productive. We kept up with our subjects quite regularly.

In TOG we concluded our study of Ancient China, India and America. This past week we watched videos about these ancient civilizations and made a cookie dough map of Ancient China and Ancient India.

The boys did their Handwriting practice, which still need work, but I can see some improvement in the writing-hating boy my oldest is. They've also moved along in Math and English, phonics and Spelling.

Last week-end they had fun skating on the Rideau Canal in Ottawa.

This past week they've also enjoyed doing a few crafts.

Another happening of the week was our playdate with another mom and her kids (whom we have not seen since mid-December due to our moved farther away from them). We met at the Science center and had a good time of fellowship; the kids and the moms. Too busy talking to take pictures!

On my part I have been busy planning the next few weeks of Tapestry, as well as thinking and researching for next year curriculum line up. I have actually already purchased  year 2 of TOG, since there was a $5o off in January (which is said to be the best sale of the year).

Here it is for a succinct recap of our last 2 weeks of school. For more recap go over to Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers.

The cookie dough map looks fabulous, although I think we'd eat more dough than we'd put on the map. :-) And I love the photos of the boys with the soap suds. Precious!
