Weekly Wrap Up 31

This week has flew by! Really, with work and packing and cleaning out man - oh - man how time does fly. The weather has been so wonderful and God has really blessed this week.

Classical Conversations this week:

DD had a presentation to give this week on - How to do anything. She choose to show how to knit on a loom. I think everyone enjoyed seeing this from her. She showed items she had already made and showed what she was currently making.

We started learning the US Presidents. Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Adams, Jackson, Van-buren, Harrison, Tyler. We included some notebooking on the presidents into our normal schooling.

  1. You really should check out a great book series when looking at presidents. I found them by accident when Faith had an interest in one that I bought at the St. Louis Arch.
    THen I got on the library's site and found it was an entire series. WHO WAS
    Grace just finished WHO WAS GEORGE WASHINGTON.
    It was a great book and look at his life while adding other facts of the times for that "tidbit" kind of learning too.
    We are not going onto WHO WAS JOHN ADAMS, which seemed the logical direction to go.


Thanks so much for stopping by and reading about our journey! Leave me something that will make me happy! Have a blessed day!
