Weekly Wrap-Up: Finished!!

Did you get that? We are FINISHED ~ our summer vacation has officially begun!  We aren’t going to completely ditch the books this summer, after a break we are going to continue to work on reading, spelling and writing.  I also want to start doing some nature journaling and drawing this summer. 

Some highlights from the week (bad and good):

We started out the week with Emily getting gloop stuck in her hair

Let me tell you, this stuff does not come out easily!  Luckily we didn’t have to cut her hair. 

On to the good!  The kids are very excited because we are heading to the beach later this month.  This will be the first time either of them has seen the ocean.  Since we are heading to the beach we have been learning about the ocean and all the fascinating creatures who live in it.

Emily decorated a picture frame with sea shells and course sand to keep a beach picture in ~ cause you know I’m gonna take a bunch of pictures!

We had some glorious thunderstorms this week so we made a Thunder Cake.  It was quite yummy!  IMG_2458  IMG_2465

 

 

 

 

 

I have been listening to the The Schoolhouse Expo online for the past three days!  What a great way to end the school year ~ getting encouraged and excited about learning!  

I hope everyone else had a great week!  Is the end of your school year in sight?  Visit Kris at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers to see what other homeschoolers have been doing this week.

Hooray for being finished!!! I'm totally jealous!!

We've still got a few week yet. We'd be done sooner if we didn't have family visiting at the wrong time. But since they rarely come to us, we're not complaining. LOL
