Last Sunday was a relaxing day with not much that we needed to do, so we went on a couple of walks and we watched a documentary about Alaska.
Monday we had a history lesson about inventions that changed the way people produced food and clothing in the late 1700s and early 1800s.
Tuesday was our celebration for A Little Princess and we made a little surprise for someone. M did a career placement test so we can discuss her future plans and what direction her high school classes should take.
Wednesday we had a science lesson on compound machines and the kids made some compound machines that smashed grapes. M and E visited the orthodontist and M is optimistic that her braces will come off in about 6 weeks if all goes well!
Thursday was our favorite geography lesson... the culture tour! We learned about so many things concerning the various cultures in the countries in North America. But, we were unhappy with this lesson too.. in past years the lesson had a little snippet of info to explain what we were viewing. This lesson had NONE of that. Not cool. So we stumbled through, and we still learned some, but not nearly as much as we had hoped we would. J had a busy afternoon between mowing yards and an extra scout activity.
Friday we had an art lesson about Vermeer and the value of women. Pretty fitting that it was right before mother's day! J did more yards, and that night Matt and I went out to dinner and shopping. Date night out of the house is a rare but fun treat!
Saturday morning Matt and J went to the Aaronic priesthood commemoration breakfast. We got groceries and worked in the garden, and attended a birthday party for my niece. It was a busy day but so much fun!
No pictures this week because life is going about 100 miles an hour and I feel like I'm behind in everything. School will be out soon and hopefully things will calm down a tiny bit!
