I thought that I might get back to doing the weekly wrap up after February. HA! I guess that didn’t happen. We did finish up our block on Westward Expansion in the US and our book. Sims also started a class through BraveWriter. I struggled signing up for the class, because-well in my mind anyway, it is kind pricey. After two weeks in the class, it was worth every penny! Awesome, awesome class.
This week, we started on a grammar block. You will notice the excitement on everyone’s faces while they sit at the table working on grammar.
We also met up for a much needed hike with some friends. It was more of our old school type of hikes. We bush wacked through the woods to find an abandoned house that the kids used to like to find when they were younger. Then we bush wacked our way a little further and found the creek. Finally, we made it back some how. I was pretty impressed that the kids still remembered their way through these woods since it has been quite a while since we have hiked there.
Beyond the hike, we had another exciting outing this week. We got to take a coding class at the local Microsoft Office. The kids enjoyed seeing a “real” office and where people work. They also learned about artificial intelligence and hacking. Then they used their coding knowledge gained from last week to hack a program. (This month in 4H is coding.)
Sims has also gotten to hit some more rocks outside the past two weeks as many kids are having spring break. We are also still loving the sunsets!
