I'm sharing today with Weird, Unsocialized Homeschooler's Weekly Wrap-Up!
My sciatica has been acting up all week so we didn't get out of the house much. Emme has been homeschooling in the evenings (this has just become our norm since I work outside of the home 3 of the days she schools). She has been unenthusiastic all week. I think it's the biology. I have the teacher's edition and this chapter has been exceedingly dull! I am going to spend some time this weekend finding a way to breathe some life into this subject for next week.
We've added some classes from Schoolteachers.com The full course for art and sign language, plus pulling from history, grammar, etc. to blend in with our own curriculum.
Em finished up the Edgar Allen Poe mini unit, reading Telltale Heart, Pit and the Pendulum, The Raven and Annabelle Lee. She enjoyed his writing. She's a fan of earlier Stephen King books so we discussed how Poe influenced him. King even won the Edgar Allen Poe Award for best novel this year with Mr. Mercedes.
We start our family book club on Monday! The girls and I will each get a chance to choose a book (Jennah chose first with Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire) which we will each read and then have a fancy tea party with candles and finger foods when we discuss the book. Jennah has been dealing with health issues and this has given her something to look forward to!
ON THE HOMEFRONT:
My camera is missing - so no pictures this week! It has to be somewhere in this small house. My son will be doing yard work before the thunderstorms start. We have plenty of cleaning to do today - the laundry and dishes never end!
Emily and I will be taking an ASL lesson online today and tonight on Netflix we will be watching the second episode of Story of Us: Revolution.
WHAT I'M READING AND/OR WRITING:
I finished three books this week. Wayward Pines by Blake Crouch 3.5 stars (now a series on tv) and two mail-order bride books - The Lady and the Mountain Doctor by Misty M. Beller 4 stars and Colleen by Ashley Merrick 2.5 stars.
I'm now re-reading Barbara Kingsolver's Poisonwood Bible and Three Daughters by Consuelo Saah Baehr.
