I realize that I have gone a little MIA on the blog lately. I guess that I am not exactly sure what to write or show. I don’t have too many pictures, and we have just been doing the same old thing.
Parks has completed two blocks since I last wrote. He did a block on Ancient China and a block on Ancient Greece. He is now working on trying to get a skatepark built in our town. He went to a town meeting. He has contacted a few towns that have public skateparks for information, and he plans on working on that for a bit.
Sawyer completed a block on China during the Middle Ages. As a group we read the books, The Starry River of the Sky and The Odyssey (a revised version). Then Sawyer and I read, Along the River: A Chinese Cinderella Novel by Adeline Yen Mah. We both LOVED this book. Sawyer has also been sewing up a storm. She has made a dress and a jean skirt and experimenting with different materials.
Sims completed a block on Chinese and Russian geography. He is also working through Biology and World History now on a daily basis. The block system hasn’t worked as well as we had hoped for high school.
We haven’t gotten out for a hike in a while. Hopefully, we will start back up again soon. Parks has visited several skateparks over the past few months. He has gained quite a few skills on the scooter and his bike. Sims and Sawyer are both rock climbing competitively right now. Although, Sims prefers to climb outside. Although the blog has been quiet, our lives have been far from it. We are staying busy.
As the year starts wrapping up, I should have a little more to post on. We are starting an anatomy and physiology class. The air is warming up so I know that we will be outside a good bit more.
