March 18-24, 2016, Our Homeschool Weekly Report, days 95-99

March 18-24, 2016
We have been very busy this week with preparations for May and the rest of the summer. Quentin has signed up for a summer acting camp. Sam has been driving with his learner's permit. We have been preparing for both Alex's and Sam's graduation ceremonies. We have been getting things ready for our dinner theater production in May.
 Katie took her placement test at our community college and signed up for a summer painting class.
We celebrated Steven's birthday.

Quentin went to Gettysburg with friends for four days, and he really missed his Midas while he was gone.
days 95-99

We have begun our studies of physical science...

Newton's First Law Demonstrations
beginning with Newton's Laws.
James also worked on math problems related to them.

Quentin enjoyed touring Gettysburg, PA.
It brings joy to my heart to see how much he loves history...a far cry from the dry memorization of names and dates that I experienced in public school history classes.
We made this map...
Don't you love these Crusader and Saracen figures Quentin bought?
 in order to visually go through each of the Crusades.
The First Crusade
The Second Crusade
James has begun a detailed study of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream.

How was your week?

  1. Happy Easter to you and your beautiful family! Since I took off from the blog and now Lent is over, I am excited to be catching up once again :)

  2. Busy times. It's exciting that Sam is driving, and your boys are graduating. Time certainly flies!

  3. OUr week was good (now that I'm answering a week after you've posted, I haven't been on the computer much, guests and all).
    Your boys are all getting so old! Congratulations to Katie on getting the placement tests done, and taking a summer art class.


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