October 30-November 5, 2015
This week there was Halloween...
and art projects...
and play rehearsals (for two plays for Quentin!).
This week he got his solo song to work on. Ir is only a few lines but it is a first solo for him.
There was math (measurement for Quentin, Algebra for James and Geometry for Alex) and grammar and writing and science projects, like this skin model. There was therapy for James and friends over for game night. There was cooking and other practical life skills.

days 34-38
How was your week?

Join me at...


  1. It looks like a good week to me, and like they had lots of fun at Halloween.

  2. The skin lesson looks very cool. It looks like a great Halloween was had at your house. It is very exciting to have a first solo. Good job Quentin!
    Blessings, Dawn

  3. Congrats on Quentin's solo! That's very exciting! I must say that although the skin model looks like a cool project and is edible, it doesn't look very appetizing!!

    1. LOL...no it wasn't very appetizing since it looked too much like skin. The boys did eat some of it, though and it was tasty, if you didn't think about it. It might appeal to some kids, boys especially. :)

  4. Good luck to Quentin at his performance. Anna just had her first big role in Peter Pan, but she did not have any solo parts, just plenty of lines. It was great fun!

  5. I'm looking forward to reading your next post (I'm going there now) about the skin - that looks very much like something my guys would love!

  6. While the edible model of the skin made me slightly queasy (I'm such a wuss!) it definitely looks like something my boys would love! What a wonderful way to engage them in learning about the human body!


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