Lots of school work this week! And lots more to get through!
I am not sure why, but the output of work seems a lot higher this year. This is neither good nor bad. It just is. More output requires more time inside and at home. That part is not my favorite.
This week we learned about money and its history. We learned about inflation. We are also almost through our first read aloud book, The Year Money Grew on Trees. It is a terrific book to go along with finance, economics and business math. The kids also made topography maps and color wheels in Spanish this week in 4H.
Sims gave me a lesson Wednesday afternoon on rigging and sailing a 420. I had a blast. I can’t wait to go again! I am not sure if that was my favorite part of the week or getting back to the barn after several weeks of not going!
Friday, the younger two worked at home on their Simply Charlotte Mason Pet Shop math and finishing up their workplans while Sims and I headed down to Charlotte to finish up his educational testing.
As always, the weekend was full! Boat cleaning, yard work, parties, concerts, sailing, and some fun time to just hang out.
