Through March 13

Was out of town 3/8 - 11. And it snowed, so other than some Daily Math Warmups for J, and I think some copywork for E, nothing much got done. Oh, the Bible was read.

Got mostly back on track today, with a new MUS lesson (which is way too easy), some ETC (instead of copywork or other writing), Daily Math Warmups, and some history. We are reading about Sir Francis Drake in specific, and explorers in general. Read the chapter on Tides in the Tiner book Exploring Planet Earth. Also continuing with history pockets, finishing up the pocket on Jacques Cartier. Later this week we will make the pocket for Drake. So, a little disjointed but working for history nonetheless.

We have two field trips (Moonstruck Chocolate and a Lewis and Clark thing) and a game day to which I promised to go, so today was probably our big day for this week. Well, there is no art class on Friday so that may end up being a work day.

I am progressing through Sweetness and Light but stopped that for a while to read A Little History of the World, a beautifully-written book for the kids.
