In our homeschool . . . For the most part, I had to be content to let the kids work on what they thought they needed to work on, because I had appointments and errands almost every day. Thankfully, that worked out fairly well, with Kennady finishing up a Science book and getting some Geography, Math, and Lit looked after. She's also finishing up the YWAM Publishing book about Orville Wright that we reviewed at the beginning of the week. (See: Orville Wright: The Flyer - Heroes of History) Landon also worked on Science, as well as History this week.

I was less than pleased that they slept much too late on the morning that I was out, but what are ya gonna do? They 'owe' me a half day of schoolwork one evening next week to make up for that!

We've still got reviews we're working on, a couple of which involve art projects:

Last Saturday I visited the state homeschool curriculum fair, even though there was really nothing I truly needed to buy! It's a little strange to get to that point in our homeschool journey. I picked up a couple of interesting books and the one Heirloom Audio Productions audio drama that we didn't own, Under Drake's Flag. (That also gives me the chance to express my excitement that Beric the Briton will be released very soon!) It was still fun to look around at all the neat curriculum and resources available, and meet a few friends that were also shopping.

Tuesday evening was a little different from the usual this week, as my choir practice was moved to a different night (our rehearsals were Wednesday and Friday this week in preparation for our concerts next week), and Landon didn't have a Civil Air Patrol meeting. Instead, he and other cadets were responsible for taking down the voting machines after polls closed in our state's primaries. So I took Kennady to her awards night for Children's Chorus and actually got to stick around for the awards and the ice cream party afterwards!

Wednesday was the morning the kids slept late, because I was at the doctor's office getting my physical all morning long. Ugh. Not fun, but at least that's over, although I am still awaiting results from my bloodwork, and I do have a couple of follow-up appointments I need to make. In the meantime, I am praying that the bloodwork and those follow-ups don't hold any bad news for my health.

Thursday evening we all went out for a dinner by the church to honor the graduates.

And today, Kennady is with her choir in Hershey at an adjudication, and Landon is on a fishing trip. He spent part of the morning at the church helping to set up for the yard sale, and I stopped by to donate some stuff they can sell, but then I also bought more stuff to bring home!
