I didn’t make a collage of all the food I cooked this week, I didn’t really make anything note worthy. But I did some special cooking with the children, you’ll see that in a bit.
This week we wrapped up our Thanksgiving Unit. We had a such a great time, all of us!
They had a lot of fun gluing in the all the lapbooks and decorating the cover.
Along with finishing up their lapbooks we also did lots of reading. I read them most of the books I got from the library. One book, An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving by Louisa May Alcott, had a recipe in the back. In a moment of inspiration I suggested we make the recipe. Wow, you should have heard the squeals of delight!
It was delicious, they did a GREAT job!
My original plan was to let them make soft pretzels as a closing activity for our Thanksgiving study. Pretzels hold no significance, I just thought it would be fun. And thankfully it WAS fun!
On the highschool front…
Banana Taffy and Chocolate Taffy got fitted for their graduation cap and gowns this week. So exciting!
Strawberry was supposed to take the PLAN test this week. I totally screwed that up. I had the time down wrong…we were a half hour late, the test already started. I’m out the money, which is disappointing but not tragic. I’m more frustrated with myself for getting the timing wrong. I tried so hard to make that happen. Ah well…can’t do anything about it now. I guess I just have to find another test for her to take. On a happier note, she is so excited to have 2 weeks off from school. She was pretty much giddy all day!
Are you taking next week off? Enjoy the time you’ve dedicated to being Thankful!
