Homeschooling: Week of January 9

We've had a good week. As much as we enjoyed Christmas, it's nice to get back into the routine of school again. Doodles and Bug had to write mini-reports for history this week. Doodles chose to write about the winter that General Washington and his men spent at Valley Forge during the American Revolution, and Bug chose to write about the Irish potato famine. Two really cool comments I heard from my children this week regarding history:
Bug: "You know, history is so cool. It's really our story."
Doodles: "Yeah, history is my favorite subject."
Thank you, Sonlight!
Here are some pictures from this week:

Doodles works on her science.

Bug does an experiment with a dirty penny and cola as part of his science.

Baby Girl works on her sliding and spinning her beads.

My little students: hard at work!
