Homeschool and Life: Nov. 12-17, 2012

We had another good week. Yay!!! Baby Girl is continuing to do much better, which is wonderful. Doodles has had a good attitude (praying that continues), and she is really enjoying learning about China--her little sister's birth country! Bug is still enjoying his school year. I am so glad we chose this Chronicles of Narnia unit study for him. I highly recommend it! We've done some baking this week, I treated myself to some sugar free goodies. Now we are looking forward to a little Thanksgiving break! Here are some of our moments from the past week:

Treat of the Week

Buttermilk pie that I made for the family...NOT low carb friendly, so I didn't eat it

But I did use these in my coffee...YUMMY!!!

Doodles' new nature study book

Doodles picture of nature: look closely & you can see two squirrels

Doodles second nature pic: bug on the side of our house

Doodles researches Chinese art

Another of Doodle's China research pages (this one is about Confucius)

Bug stayed up late to draw football plays...he is his father's son!

Bug works on area and perfect squares, as well as multiplication facts

Bug studied horses this week as part of his Narnia unit study. We started reading The Horse and His Boy this week.

Bug painted a scence from The Horse and His Boy

And Doodles got an early Christmas present!
