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 for another weekly wrap up.

We've been busy here. Yesterday was our last week of electives. My French class read out loud John 3:16 in French, and did pretty good. The boys got their certificates.

In school we did not do much this week. We are still trying o finish up FLL. It will definitely take us until the last day before we go off to Martinique to finish it. For Math we are taking it easy as well; moving on with Professor B and doing some practice sheets (which I got from Practical Pages), to add variety.

I have decided to stop spelling until we start back in August. We finished our geography but still have a few stories in our BJU readers to finish.

As for Joho he has been doing some handwriting and reading from I Wonder (CLE 1st grade readers).

The boys have been busy doing science and crafts.

Building a wooden tank

Exploring the solar system with the help of Aha Science

Catching and watching caterpillars

Making a mail man bag:

As for me I have been busy twinkling my blog, as you can see, due to homeschoolblogger's upgrade to wordpress. I have been experimenting with themes and enjoying playing around with the widget (sometime with frustration). hang there with me as I get use to this new platform.

I like the new blog look...looks like some fun activities your boys are doing. Did they get to keep the catepillers? We also use CLE and I like it a lot. Especially that God is in the stories and reinforces things we teach them. My kids love phonics now. Mailbag looks fun...

Oh yes, they kept them. They have cocooned now, we are hopping they will turn into butterflies. The fact that God is in the stories is what I liked about the BJU readers as well. It is really good because the genera of the stories varies between plays, biographies, fictions, retold Bible stories. I actually liked it better than the CLE, but these are good too.

Ah, I have noticed that all my homeschoolblogger friends blogs look different; that explains why!

Sounds like you had a good week!
