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 time to  stop and do a wrap-up of what has been happening at our house.

Since my last weekly wrap-up, Zach had his project fair presentation which went well.

We've done our regular school subjects,

We've done art,

We've gone to the Zoo,

We have read some pretty cool books,


We have had character issues to deal with.

We started our spring elective session, in which I am teaching cooking.

We've enjoyed a new history DVD series within our studies of the 13 colonies, called Colonial Life for Children.

Also, last week-end, I caught my oldest writing of his own will, something he refuses to do and DOES NOT DO. His usual complaint about writing is, "why can't we write with scribbles?". I can see hope for the future, although I found out about dysgraphia this week and think that he might have this condition. I will have to investigate further.

Lastly, but just as important, I have been looking more closely into our curriculum line up for next school year. So far I've got, TOG, Michael Thompson, Real Science 4 Kids, Handwriting Without Tears, and continue with Math On the Level. I have been looking into Jr. Analytical Grammar and would appreciate any thoughtson this program.

And that's in a nutshell the main happenings here. Off we are tomorrow on an overnight trip to Montreal. A timely trip,  given we just learned about Champlain and New France this week,
