Weekly Wrap Up 25 { Late }



Hey there friends! Hope your weekend was wonderful! Mine sure was hence the late post!

All last week we enjoyed S N O W!! So we really didn't accomplish much "traditional education" but we sure educated ourselves in a "nontraditional" way all week! We did crack open the books here and there but not in our normal way!
 


Rover totally enjoyed his first snow. He loved chasing the kids through it and even took a few sled trips with the kids. I got out and played a little with the kids too! Kevin was home so it was a family outing! I will tell on myself - I was doing really good at snowboarding until the snow board decided it wanted to stop and my body wasn't told so I feel flat on my head! I was alright after the fright went away!


Sledding in all our snow brought up we needed some Snow Cream, we hadn't had any in about 2 years so it was a great treat! Recipe will be coming up this week so stay close!


We have been learning about Van Gogh a little and his techniques for art. We decided since Daddy got me some of my favorite flowers for Valentine's Day (TUPLIPS) we would sketch them and do an oil pastel technique like his Sunflowers portrait. I'm going to post a tutorial on our art project this week hopefully too! It was simple, fast and fun so it's my favorite!


Last picture to share with you guys is poor Rover missing the kids playing in the snow! I loved this picture, it's so sweet!


Glad all the snow has decided to melt away. Our weather is suppose to be awesome this week and so far today we have had a great time in schooling. As normal anytime we have a break from our normal routine the first day enforcing it can be a challenge however we are still doing good for our Monday!

Hope you have a great week and please don't forget to enter the Dial Vitamin Boost Coupon Giveaway it ends tomorrow!!

  2. I love the tulips and the idea to sketch them using a Van Gogh method. I loved all the photos. It certainly looks like you made the most of all the snowy weather. I'm so ready for some weather with tulips coming up from the ground around here.

  6. We had a snow week also! I'm so glad to see it all melted away. We never manage to get anything accomplished in our homeschool unless we count all the sledding and snow play as PE. Surely there's some science in there somewhere :) Looks like a week of fun!

  7. Glad to see some are enjoying the snow! I assume you live in the South...up north -it has overstayed its welcome! We actually have so much snow that we can't go outside to sled because the kids get lost in it! (I'm not kidding!) I love the idea of the tulips and Van Gogh! Thanks for sharing!

  8. It sounds like you had a fun week. We had our snow a few weeks ago here in Texas. I love all the posts about your homeschool activities.
    I'm stopping by from the 100 Days Challenge and am grateful to be discovering so many great homeschool blogs.

  9. What in the world is Snow Cream? I am so curious...and anything labeled as a treat is worth knowing about in my book! Sounds like you've had a great time in the snow...I'm SO over it at this point but it'll probably be April by the time it's gone from here

  11. I love seeing your snow. We have had a very mild winter in northern Utah. We used to make snow cream when I was in elementary school. Thanks for the reminder. I had forgotten all about it.

  12. I will gladly share some of our snow. We've had way too much this year and it can leave any time now. Looks like your kids had fun though and it's probably a nice treat for them. Visiting from the BYB challenge.

  13. All of your snow has melted away? Want some more?

    It's so nice that you were out and enjoying the snow. we have also been lackluster around here, but are looking forward to going back to our normal school days (at least I am)! It's so nice to meet new homeschooling families!

    Thank you so much for participating in the blog challenge!

  14. Snow is so rare here that we also stop traditional schooling to enjoy it. This year we had some 3 weeks ago, and then we got to experience the ice storm last week. Needless to say, I am over winter and ready for spring!

    I'm so glad I found you from Boost Your Blog. I'm adding your blog to my reading list at Bloglovin. :)
