We had a madly busy week, last week, and I'm glad to say that this week is quieter and cooler! Doing school work last week, was a bit of a challenge, with us all popping down to the pool at lunch time each day to cool off.
Here's some geometry from last week.
Gabriel's six pointed star.
Gabriel's and my six circles around a circle.
Willow's cube folding exercise.
Gabriel, Arden and I headed to the museum last week for a couple of homeschool classes. Gabriel's was on fossils, and he really enjoyed it. Arden's class was about dinosaurs. It was Arden's first class to attend without Willow or Gabriel, so I was a bit curious how he'd find it. Initially he wanted me next to him, but he quickly got the idea of sitting with the other kids, and looking out for me as needed. He'll be starting circus class this weekend, and will be going to another museum class in March.
Willow has been making progress on her doll- starting to work on embroidering her face.
We ended the week with Gabriel's 11th birthday- he was very excited about it as we said that he could watch the first part of Lord of the Rings. Everyone really enjoyed it. Gabriel also got a hobbit lego set for his birthday and a skateboard, so he was pretty happy all round!
