Our Homeschool Weekly Report, March 14-20, week 25

March 14-20, week 25

There is not much to tell you about this week. Most of our school work was a continuation of things we have been doing...Greek alphabet study, constellation study, working with fractions. Quentin did a lot of review in his math as we are starting a new math program.

In our Greek roots study, the boys learned geo which means earth, hypnos which means sleep, lithos which means stone and petros which also means rock or stone.
In Grammar we went over possessives, and we learned about the Archaic period of our study of Ancient Greece. I will be writing a separate post about that when we finish.
The weather has been so erratic...one day it is snowing and two days later it is T-shirt weather. On those days when the weather is fine and the boys are peacefully but excitedly playing outside, I just don't have the heart to pull them in to do book work. By the time they are finished playing, they are then too exhausted.
We do lots of reading, talking and thinking, but not as much putting it to paper.

Co-op has begun it's fourth semester. James is taking an Art class and Quentin, Sam and James are in my Drama class. We are in rehearsal for the play that the class has written.
And then there were our days of...

Saint Patrick's Day

How was your week?


  1. What a great week. Thanks for your kind words on my blog. I appreciate it.
    Blessings, Dawn

  2. Our weather has been really up and down too. It's been kinda annoying. I'm hoping it'll settle out.

  3. Just wanted to say that I love your festive green bread. I had totally forgotten about St. Patrick's Day until Rose woke up on Monday morning determined that we were going to make green pancakes together for breakfast!

  4. The weather here has been up and down too.. doing a number on my allergies! Love the festive bread! Looks tasty!

  5. I love James' painting! We've had strange weather too. We saw lots of geese flying in yesterday though, so that's a sure sign spring is coming soon! Have a wonderful week, Phyllis!

  6. We had green playdough on St Patrick's Day, and Chocolate Cream Pie on Pi Day - but otherwise your week sounds pretty familiar :)

  7. So many great celebrations! Your family always seems to be having such fun :)

  8. I love James' painting. it is SO good!
    I'm so behind on all things blog related but it looks like you had a wonderful week last week!
    Can you believe Gary is 100% Irish and we did nothing for St Patrick's day?


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
