It is finally March. Even though it has been pretty chilly and we even had some sleet on the first day of March, it is here.
We have had such a good week. We didn’t do a lot. We stayed home and did lots of learning.
We did go to the Mardi Gras parade on Saturday. It is a parade for dogs and we always love it.
Monday was a great day at Co-op. We finished practicing for our “White Gloves” song we are performing next week at Co-op. The kids are all so excited.
Tuesday was my 2nd class with my writing group. We actually went on a field trip when everyone first got here. There is a really cool museum near us that is FREE. It is a Natural Science Museum and it isn’t very big but they have lots of neat things there.
Then we came back here and did some writing. They loved the first activity they did. You write the first line of a story then pass it to the next person. Then that person covers the first line and passes it to the next person. So you can always only see the line right before yours. When it gets back to the original owner they read the entire story and write a line to ‘finish it up’. They all wanted to do it again so we did. Then after snacks we did Mapping the World Through Art. This is such a fun curriculum. Afterwards they worked on their project, a stop motion video. They are almost ready to start taking pictures.
We did lots of Algebra this week and Chemistry. She also is going through Crash Course Psychology. I swear I love John and Hank Green. They are awesome!! She has written some on the story she is writing and it is so good. Well I think it is so good and a couple of people who have heard it think it is too. Keilee finished reading “Divergent” and she loved it, which I knew she would! She has already started on “Insurgent”. She is reading MORE and MORE lately. And simply loving it. I was listening to her and a friend at play practice talking about books and they were both so excited and talking so fast about a few books they had both read. It makes me giddy!!
Did you hear about the SAT? They are radically changing it. I have read several articles about the changes and I think they sound so much better!!
Keilee is crocheting all the time too. 1. She saw a cupcake hat that she loved so she made herself one; in ONE day, with no pattern. 2. We also did some cool Zentangles at Co-op and watched 3. “The Oscars”. We both LOVE Jennifer Lawrence and Keilee really wanted to see Idina Menzel who played Elphaba in “Wicked” on Broadway and also was the voice of Elsa in “Frozen”. 4. She has made also made about 7 hats in 10 or so days.
Thank you all for the prayers last week. Things haven’t changed much but I am trusting in God to provide and open doors. I am trusting in him having a perfect plan for our lives. Please continue to pray for us because I believe so strongly in the power of prayer!
I hope the weather is warming up where you are!
“March came in that winter like the meekest and mildest of lambs, bringing days that were crisp and golden and tingling, each followed by a frosty pink twilight which gradually lost itself in an elfland of moonshine.” L.M. Montgomery
“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” ~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
