This week we were on a little different schedule. For Kessiah and Jenessa, it was mid-term week...that means they didn't have any online classes. The week for them was finishing projects/assignments and taking some tests. What that all translates to is it was a slower week for everyone...we didn't get up as early and we stayed up a little later...kind of like a pre-Spring break!
Logan cornered me when the girls were at piano lessons and "insisted"
that I start piano lessons with him. In his defense, I had told him I
would start teaching him in January...and I still hadn't done it! So, I
got out the primer books and gave him his first lesson. We sat down at
the piano and had a short lesson every day this week except for Saturday
and Sunday. He is pretty excited to be learning how to play. One
morning he came downstairs and went right into the piano room to
practice before he even said "Good Morning!" Here is a picture of him
taken towards the end of the week...he is showing me a song that he had
Family Home Evening we went to see a play at the local middle school.
Kessiah has a friend who was in Oklahoma...now I'm in the mood to see
the movie...it might be my pick for family movie night when it's my
Tuesday: Kessiah went to a nursing home
for her youth activity. She was able to play a couple of piano pieces.
Jenessa and Sienna made cars for the Darling Derby (they are using the
track that the Cub Scouts use for the Pinewood Derby) Ryan got to help
them make their cars.
Wednesday: We got our baby
chicks! We have been counting down the days and now we have 18 cute
little fluff balls. Needless to say, there wasn't a lot of formal
schooling that happened today! That evening I picked up an order of
chicken from Zaycon. So, I had 80 pounds of chicken to put in the
freezer before bedtime.
We did our large group day for our homeschool group. We divided into 2
different groups and solved a crime. I went with the girls and we did
some experiments to determine who sabotaged a cookie shop.
evening we had our 4H community meeting which included a green contest
and a pizza party. Yeah! That meant I didn't have to cook dinner.
Jenessa dressed up in the 4H tshirts as a last minute contestant in the
For one of Jenessa's midterm assignments she had to go out in nature
and look at some animals in their natural habitats. So, Ryan took
Kessiah, Jenessa, Sienna, and Logan on a hike. On their way home from
the hike they stopped to pick up 2 baby ducks to add to the chick crew.
Sienna went to a birthday party and Jenessa had a friend over during
the birthday party (the sister of the birthday girl). Kessiah went with
a friend to the Renaissance Festival. She had a great time and came
home with some elf ears.
