Weekly Wrap Up Week 2

Making some boats to see what it is like when stormy weather or wind gets crazy on the ocean. We are studying first settlers of the United States.

Haven with his Vitamin Water boat.

Holding the skewers in place as the hot glue dries in Evangeline's orange juice carton boat.

The ocean bathtub surrounded by Giants

Timmy attempting to salvage a sail. The Vitamin water bottles are a bit tipsy.

We also had our first roast and fire in the new backyard firepit. Ummm we didn't have any camp roasters and these kabob skewers were a tad too short. I guess I better watch out for some at end of summer sales.

Other than that it was a slow week. Evangeline is advancing in her math memorization facts at a good pace. Not fast enough for her but fast enough for me. :)
Timothy is improving greatly in his reading. Phonics Pathways mixed with ETC and Mcguffey Readers seems to be working very well. He likes a change of pace often so we rotate what we are reading everyday.

Check out for more weekly wrap ups or to join in.
