Homeschooling: Week of Oct. 8-12, 2012

We had a really good week. There was more cooking, and that's usually lots of fun! We spent a lot of time outside enjoying the cooler weather. Doodles continued her study of Japan, while Bug is currently reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for his Narnia unit study. Baby Girl is steadily learning basic concepts and also learning how to communicate her needs. I finished reading Mockingjay, which is the final book in The Hunger Games series. Now I'm looking for the next good book to read. I'd love some suggestions, so feel free to comment.  Here are some of our highlights:
