We went to an indoor flea market Sunday after church. It is a favorite place of ours. They had an old red caboose in the parking lot and we had to explore, of course!
Keilee decided to ‘start’ school this past week. She said she wanted to take June off because she had 2 camps and workshops and play practice but she is ready to get back to it. She has spent June totally immersed in theater, music, art, dance, puppets and more.
I found this site called All in One Homeschool or Easy Peasy and told her about it and she was raring to go. This is a great curriculum and it IS FREE!!!! It is all there, everything you will need, day by day!!! Keilee loves it because it is ‘all in one place’. You all know how much she needs to ‘check things off a list’. She is doing the 8th grade curriculum and Modern History and “Physics and Chemistry”.
You really all need to check this out. This site is just chock full of wonderful, amazing resources. ALL FREE.
Keilee is doing other things also but this is a big part of what her 8th grade will be. She ‘wants’ to do 8th grade the 1st semester and start 9th the 2nd semester but I am trying to talk her out of that. She worked on Sunday getting her Notebook made and has worked on it every day. She has done it daily and really, really loves it. I begged her to take off July 4th because it’s a holiday!
It usually has taken her about 3 hours to complete but she is doing 2 days at once. Still leaves a lot of time for fun stuff.
We spent Tuesday at the pool. She has almost finished Book 2 of Harry Potter.
There is, always, cartwheels and so forth outside. I don’t think the Olympic Gymnasts practice as much as she does. Well ok, maybe they do.
We had clouds and rain and rainbows this past week.
Keilee is doing the Blimey Cow Photo a Day Challenge on Instagram. She LOVES Blimey Cow. LOVES them!! Especially Jordan.
Here is the 1st day…a Selfie. Of course no picture of JUST Keilee would do…
Here is some of her pictures for “Exploring”. She has the best ideas for things!
And here are some from “Messy”. Yes she got mud and painted it all over herself.
Wednesday was Keilee’s 1/2 birthday. 13 1/2, so we went to the movie. We were going to see “The Lone Ranger” but I read really bad reviews right before we walked out the door so we ended up seeing “Man of Steel”. It was a good movie. We went to eat afterwards. There is only 1 day that a girl turns 13 1/2 after all. Even though we didn’t see Lone Ranger, she HAD to have her picture made with Johnny.
4th of July it RAINED buckets and buckets all.day.long. Our backyard was flooded!! We had plans to go to see Fireworks but that got cancelled so we invited some friends over for food, fun and “Oz, the Great and Powerful“! The movie was actually quite good. Keilee made a cake and her 4th of July Strawberries.
The theme this week on “7 Cool Homeschoolers” was “I Got Skillz” so Keilee did some of the roles that are her favorites. Check it out if you have a chance.
So all in all a great 1st week of July! I can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer brings!
