This week in our home school we have been working on America the Beautiful, by Notgrass. My son is actually starting to own his own work with this program. He doesn't do it perfectly, skipping some assignments, but it is a huge improvement.
We are at about Lesson 6 or 7 right now. At Lesson 5 there was a fun assignment to build a longhouse using toothpicks and gumdrops. We didn't do it. I wasn't prepared. So I'm looking ahead this time to try to be ready for the next hands-on or.
We're gearing up for Boy Scout Camp... very soon... so the school books will have to rest for that week for other very good endeavors for my son.
I've also been decluttering my house. JD baked and iced a golden layer cake, chocolate buttercream frosting, which went into the freezer in preparation for County Fair. Wednesday night he finished up an electric project at 4-H which he will enter at the fair.
Thursday he was supposed to have a Boy Scout get together to work on Astronomy Merit Badge, but clouds moved through and it was cancelled. Then the clouds left and we looked at the crisp clear sky and sighed.
Friday JD had an orthodontist appointment. His treatment plan was laid out, and he goes back in a few weeks for spacers, then a couple of weeks later for a palatal expander.
JD worked at the fairgrounds yesterday to help get it ready for Fair days. And that was our week.
