This week...

Ok, I will admit, I AM a slacker. LOL We didn't do much in finishing up with history or science last week. What we did manage to do was run around town way too much! So.. we WILL finish up this week. ;)

We have a bit more to read from our Weather spotters guide book, then will finish off the kit with building the gauges and such. We have a few lessons to do in our Ancient Greece book, and a little reading yet as well. Then after that, all we have is the Fractions booklet to finish, and into decimals through the summer. I told the kids that once they complete the daily 4 pages of fractions, they'll only need to do 2 pages daily in decimals. Just something to keep their brains *thinking about math* instead of turning to mush. LOL

We are planning to visit some local places. I've been going through my favorites of travel ideas. Here is one I want to hit this month hopefully -
Brookside Gardens It has a really nice Butterfly exhibit. We also finally got our GPS unit, so I need to learn that this week so we can start Geocaching! (This is something we want to do a bit of before DH ends up having knee surgery again.)

So this is what our week looks like -
1. Finish the Weather Kid Kit

2. Finish the Ancient Greece unit
3. Learn how to use the GPS unit!!

Monday, Monday

Ok, so by now we are usually finished with our school "year".. but we ended up a tad behind this time. We have a bit of science and history yet to complete. And both kids are doing some math throughout the summer, just so they don't forget what they've learned this year.

I was hoping that most of our science work would have been finished last week.. but that didn't happen. *sigh* So I am hoping we can get the science and most of our history finished this week. So basically all we'll be doing is math and reading books through the summer.

Public schools are finished Wed. this week. So I'll be watching the girl I babysit every summer again. The kids usually do not want to do any work when she is here.. so we'll have to argue about that for a day or 2. LOL
