January 22-28, 2016

As many of us, we enjoyed our first big snow.
Midas enjoyed going out in it...

and then coming back inside to get warm.
Steven and Midas even went down to the beach.

Lots of playing in the snow...
even on the snow mounds in the parking lot of the grocery store.
We celebrated National Peanut Butter day.
I went to physical therapy and to James' counselor and we started back to co-op this week.

days 58-62

Sam is continuing with his Japanese, English and Algebra II work. We picked up this two books to assist him with his Japanese, as Rosetta Stone does not have a large writing component.
The boys completed an illumination project which we had started last semester. We are reading about the Mayans meanwhile. James began a comparison of the Incans and the Mayans. He also worked on his friend essay and converting fractions, percents and decimals back and forth.

He also continues with his self-teaching the piano. I told him that if he continues with it for a year, we will look into purchasing a piano for him. Katie, who took seven years of piano lessons, helps him out if he has a problem.
Quentin worked on his usual English (The Logic of English) and math lessons. We have switched to Teaching Textbooks for his math as well as I have been out of the house so much lately. He can do these lessons independently.

How was your week?

  1. I love going to places you typical wouldn't during certain seasons. The beach is such a beautiful place in the winter months, but people often miss it because, well, it's cold! LOL The water is usually a brilliant blue, green and gray, unlike summer colors. I celebrated PB Day too! I love PB...

  2. Beautiful snow pictures. We had tons where I live, too! We always love posts about homeschooling and literacy at our Literacy Musing Mondays Linkup http://www.foreverjoyful.net/?p=782

  3. Sounds like a very full week! Japanese must be a very fascinating language to learn!

  4. I love your shots of the snow on the beach! Looks like you made the most of the big storm.

  5. Oh, I love the beach pictures. They are wonderful. I am glad you all had a good week and enjoyed the snow!

  6. I am glad that we did NOT get any snow! The weather patterns are crazy this year! How far do you guys live from the beach! As always you've managed to amaze me once again with your an awesome week!

  7. You know, I never really thought of a beach and snow at the same time.

    How is he liking Teaching Textbooks? I've considered it from time to time, but wasn't sure if I'd like the on the computer portion of it.

  8. Oh, look at that gorgeous snow! I want some!! Is the white house in one of the photo near the top your house? It is so gorgeous! Houses like that over here are known as mansions and are well out of the ordinary person's price range. You are very blessed :)

  9. Those snow pictures are JUST GORGEOUS! Your house looks to beautiful, almost like a step back in time beautiful! And the frozen beach, thanks for sharing! I've never seen anything like that before. Plan on showing the kids here :)
