Weekly Wrap-Up~6

Another successful week behind us!  We actually had a field trip this week too!

Tiny Tot School- 5 months old


Having some organic sweet potatoes!  Yum!


This is what Marshmallow does during school time.  It keeps her busy for long enough to get through 1 subject!  I love it how she’s getting used to the camera.

Preschool~3 years old


Nothing too out of the ordinary for Laffy Taffy.  He felt like playing with Monster Trucks and Little People more than anything.  This child knows so much Latin.  He listens to his Song School Latin CD at nap time and bedtime.  It’s a crack up listening to him singing them!  I’ve also recently purchased the CD from Steve Green-Hide 'em in Your Heart Vol. 1.  To say he loves it would be an understatement!

1st Grade~6 years old


One of her major accomplishments of this week was completing her second knitted hat.  She made it will a loom under the tutelage of her big sister.  Bubble Gum was so happy to be able to give it to Marshmallow!

3rd Grade~8 years old


Blue-Raspberry had a great week.  He had to double up one day of schoolwork so we could go to the zoo.  For being such an active squirmy boy he sure enjoys school!  In this picture he’s working on his copy work for Latin.

9th Grade~13 Years Old

The highlight of Strawberry’s week was the Kari Jobe worship conference we went to on Friday night.  It was an amazing time for our whole family!  I haven’t been to a worship service like that in years.  I could have LIVED there!  She also seems to have turned a corner in her personal appearance.  That’s a weird way to say it, but you know how it is with young teens, it’s like they have to reach a certain point and then all of a sudden they start doing things like fixing their hair and wearing cute clothes without prompting.  That happened to Strawberry this week.  She’s never been resistant to getting dressed up or fixed up, she just wasn’t confident in her own ability to do it “correctly.”  I wish I would have gotten a picture of how lovely she looked last night at fellowship.  Such a lovely young lady.

11th Grade/PSEO~15 & 16 Years Old

I’m just combining them together, nothing really new happened this week.  They had their traditional Wednesday night freak-out, after getting all their assignments from school, but I’m happy to report that they are mastering their time and managing to get everything done consistently.  They even came with us to the zoo!  I didn’t expect them to come, but was so glad they did!

Field Trip~Como Zoo

Don’t you love it when public school starts back up and you practically get the whole zoo to yourself?  The weather was perfect too: cool and crisp and sunny!




Lord’s blessings on another great week of homeschooling!!

  1. What a fun week! Nice to see all those smiling faces. I think it is a difficult adjustment for home-schooler's to suddenly have assignments that are more difficult, have more serious consequences if they are not done right, and that mom can't necessarily help with! But its a good thing. The other side of the coin is that they aren't burned out by dumb assignments and everthing is new and exciting, even if difficult. Thanks for sharing your week!

  2. Well, I guess I will be over for lessons from Bubble Gum!! I cant knit anything! Love the hat!! Sounds like a very fun week!


Your comments make me happy! Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!!
