This Week@ As We Walk Along the Road

We are settling well into a routine for the fall. I almost hesitate to say that, lest it's interrupted. We are also- as a family- really enjoying having less come and go for the time being. Ashlyne cut her gym hours and isn't competing this season, so she only has six hours at the gym each week- two days. The big kids aren't doing cheer and football, so we don't have the every night practice and every weekend games. We actually get to eat supper together several nights a week. I'm loving it.
A look at our homeschool week

Ashlyne and Rachel and I are reading through the Apologia Exploring Creation With Chemistry and Physics. I love the notebooking journals that go along with the book because using those teach the girls to take notes and comprehend what we're reading.

We also enjoy the experiments that go along with the book. If you didn't catch my post earlier this week, you can read it and laugh- When Science Experiments Go Awry.

Another curriculum we've enjoyed in the past and are still using is ARTistic Pursuits. The younger girls are using the second book in the elementary series. It's all about learning to work with color and drawing. In this week's lesson, we were experimenting with different paper textures to see how they affected color.

We recently received two new games for review. Tapple became a quick favorite, and it's been played many, many times in our house over the last few weeks. It involves naming items from a category using the letters around the Tapple wheel. Board games are always a great way to learn while doing something fun.

On Fridays, I'm finishing up our Passport to History Middle Ages that the younger girls and I reviewed this summer. This week we played Fox and Geese (a game similar to checkers) as we talk about entertainment in the middle ages.

We have one more regular week of school this week, and then we're looking forward to a week at the beach. One great thing about homeschool is the freedom to travel when everyone else is in school.

I'm linking up this week with Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
