Landon has managed to stay pretty much on track with the Notgrass World History course, which is probably the most important right now. He has been working on Algebra, but not at the same pace, which is fine. I've recommended putting off Grammar and Drafting until the work season is over, and I don't think that will present any problems in the long run. What we've added is an essay writing course - he's completed his first writing assignment for that, so hopefully we won't fall behind! - and we are just getting started with an online Nutrition course.
In other news... our vacation last week was great, and we all enjoyed the break. I posted a number of pictures in A Massanutten PhotoJournal. We had a lovely place to stay, and the weather was wonderful.
At church, we had kickoff for the midweek activities on Wednesday, so we were all involved with that.
|All set up for our tailgate theme kickoff party!|
One of my favorite things this week... getting a new book to read, and then finding out that I won another book on a blog giveaway! I'm on a roll! LOL
I recommend... checking out the Schoolhouse Crew Reviews of The 7 Minute Life Daily Planner. It sounds really cool!
And I've started a new link-up here called Middle School Monday. I would love to get the word out to other homeschoolers and welcome them to share their posts related to middle school kids here each week.
