Choi Kwang Do and other homeschool fun!

This has been a week full of LIFE! Plenty of learning, to be sure, but a lot outside the boundaries of traditional subjects. Biggest example: we had a “staffing” about two children for another possible foster-adoption! {See Monday’s post to catch up!}

Enrichment classes:

Choi Kwang Do

The girls started back to enrichment classes this week. They’re both taking Choi Kwang Do and loved their first class; they’ve been practicing together since. Kathryn is taking the LEGO mechanics class she really wanted, and assisting in a kindergarten art class. Lindsey is taking a Bible class on Genesis, plus a home design class she’s super excited about.

Band class went well last week, so Kathryn has been a little more motivated to practice her flute this week.

The basics:

We did our regular math assignments, and Kathryn and I did our history and science readings. Because of the different paces each girl has been doing, they are now almost up to the same time period in history. Lindsey still has a love/hate relationship with the Dave Ramsey finance course she’s doing — and I’ll be posting a review of that in the next week or two. For literature, Lindsey is reading Little Women, but having some trouble getting into it, despite Kathryn’s assurance that it is a wonderful book.  Kathryn finished Blue Willow by Doris Gates, set during the Depression.

Fun extras:

If you have anyone in the house who is interested in astronomy, don’t miss the post with our favorite astronomy resources! That’s something Kathryn does a bit of every week.

Kathryn has been attending rehearsals for a Purim play, coming up next month, where she’ll play one of Esther’s handmaids. We’ve been having fun babysitting our little “Peanut.” (In fact, I published this post with a baby in my lap — but it was already written. How do you moms with littles do this all the time?!) Kathryn has been helping more often in the kitchen. This afternoon, I’m hoping to squeeze in an art project!


**Oh, and one more thing I’m excited about: this 2:1 Conference news! Will you be there? I’d love to meet you!
