Weekly Wrap Up 26

 

Busy Busy Busy... Finally getting around to updating what in the world we done this week! 


Classical Conversations:


DS1 had a presentation to prepare for on the Colorado Desert. He has to present this on Monday however we are expecting over 10 inches of snow so I don't think he will get to but he will present it next time there!

DD had to prepare a presentation this week also on the Painted Desert in AZ. Its beautiful and really shows how wonderful God made our Earth! 

DS2 doesn't have to present until next week so we didn't work on any CC work for him this week.
