Weekly Wrapup

Monday:  First day of Spring Break...but Mason wanted to do we did!  That evening we got together with a few friends at the park for a kickball game.

Tuesday:  Jenessa's birthday...she is so excited to be 12!  Kessiah made her a peanut butter cup cake.

I arranged for some friends to come over for Jenessa, Sienna, and Logan.  Jenessa started planning her birthday part with her friend...she is going to have a mystery dinner...should be fun!

Wednesday:  Ryan came home mid-morning with 3 more chicks to add to our brooder!  We were surprised at the difference in size between the new ones and the chicks we got just one week ago.

Even though it is Spring Break for isn't for every we did co-op today.  It was my day to have everyone and the first day of our new unit about the Civil War.

Thursday:  We did our homeschool group today, the first week of a new unit.  We are discussing architecture.  I had the 8-9 year olds.  We made pet rocks and then made a jungle gym  and a house for them!  Kessiah and Jenessa's group made structures that could hold a can of soup.  Logan and Mason's group talked about The Three Little Pigs and their different homes.


We went to the library later that afternoon.  It has been hard for us to find a regular library time this school year.  I was glad to be able to pick up several books about the Civil War for Sienna to read during this month to go along with our co-op theme.

Friday:  Mason woke up wanting to know if it was a school day...I told him no because it was Spring Break.  He asked if he could do school we did some phonics.  I was happy to do that since he is eager and I think phonics is one of those subjects that is good to do regularly.  That afternoon I took Kessiah and Jenessa to the bowling alley where they met some friends...Jenessa was proud of herself for coming in second place!

Saturday:  We met some friends at the park on 3/14 at 9:26 in the morning to celebrate Pi Day!  Of course...there was pie!  Kessiah scooped out the first piece at exactly 9:26.

After Saturday jobs were done, Ryan took the girls swimming at the Y.  That evening Ryan and I took Jenessa to Olive Garden...a 12 year old birthday tradition!
