Weekly Report

I hope everyone has had a great week! It amazes me that we only have 14 days of reporting to do. We plan to do science and colonial Georgia throughout the summer as well as 1-2x a week math, grammar and Latin. My official school year will start again 1 Aug. We accomplished a lot even though The Chipmunk was sick Sat evening-Wednesday. We did school at the dining room table so The Chipmunk could watch DVDs upstairs or go out on the front porch and blow bubbles when the Motrin kicked in. We have not added anything new. Of course, I am such a curriculum junkie, we could probably add "new" things without purchasing anything! The previous post has lots of pictures from our pond trip yesterday. I really, really love "The Pond People" (there is also The Night People, The Meadow People and The Forest People).
Nutmeg continues today with Seton Handwriting 2 (cursive), Seton Religion 2 + The Golden Children's Bible stories read by Daddy at night, Saxon 2 (centimeters/inches, multiplying by 5, counting quarters, graphs), Prima Latina lesson 20, First Language Lessons 2 + worksheets from Seton Grammar 1 and 2, Spelling Workout B + spelling copywork I make up in StartWrite, SOTW 3 chapter 14 (Prussia, Frederick) and memorizing the poem "Daffodowndilly" by A. A. Milne:

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.

She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head;
And whispered to her neighbor:
"Winter is dead."

Short and sweet.

I have never heard of "The Pond People." I'll have to look at that for when we cycle back through to Bio next school year.
