It has been a crazy couple of weeks! Both the boys have been sick on and off, I went out of town for an annual event and work took me out of the house a few days. Needless to say, I am behind in posting and the boys are slightly behind schedule with school. Gotta love homeschooling!
Joshua continues to love his curriculum. We finished reading The Reb and the Redcoats a bit ahead of schedule because it was the one thing we could accomplish while ill. We both were delighted with the story and enjoyed getting to know the characters. So blessed by all the great books we get to read!
Joshua made hasty pudding one day - I have no idea which of the three units it was in. No one in the family liked it. Even so, Joshua had a lot of fun preparing it. We so appreciate that cooking skills are occasionally included as a History Project.
We both are thrilled with the Worldview study. The discussion time is so great! In the last unit we looked up verses and matched them with the characteristic of God that they confirmed. Joshua LOVED it. He told me that he so enjoys God's Word. I see him growing in the Lord leaps and bounds this year. Praising God for His work in each of our lives!
Today, while checking Day 3 of unit 12, I realized that Joshua and I had never completed his writing. We will have to complete that tomorrow. When we get out of our groove for more than a day we seem to lose our momentum!
He also has missed his music appreciation lessons - at least part of them. Somehow Joshua misplaced the disc he needs to complete the projects. I did find it, but I was not a happy camper! He will be making up the work the week of Thanksgiving - it was scheduled time off.
Joshua is continuing to memorize the book of Matthew for Bible quizzing...but again, he is behind due to illness. Hopefully, he will be able to catch up in the next week since the next quiz is just over a week away.
He also is practicing with a neighborhood church for their Christmas cantata that he was invited to be part of. Poor guy, he is one of the few teen boys that is participating..and since it isn't our home church, he doesn't really know anyone.
But, he is a trouper and doesn't complain!
