Week 2 MFW - Rome to the Reformation: Romans, pets, and brains

Here are a few highlights from our week...

My son survived the first 2 art lessons. He didn't really complain at all. He saved the complaining for writing...arg!!! You'd have thought I asked him to write some sort of dissertation instead of a few sentences describing his bedroom. It's gonna be a loooong year...

The kids are enjoying Bible time. They had fun "cracking the code" on their way to Granny's house to visit her. We did not make the secret scroll because we had done something similar to this at church not too long ago. We did bring out some samples of papyrus paper the kids had though to look over in detail.

The kids are really getting into this time period. Augustus Caesar's World is a little slow at times, but I make enlarged copies of some of the pictures and that helps keep them occupied during the less interesting parts of the book. 

They really liked the odd or even game. I gave them a time limit (b/c that game can go on forever), but they wanted to play it until the very end (and it did take forever), but they enjoyed every minute of it :)

Science is going well. I just ordered a few human body models so the kids can get a more in depth look at things. I wish they were here as of yesterday. I hope they arrive soon :/ We also have a neat 3-D book called Uncover the Human Body that we utilize from time to time. 

The kids got a kick out of Backward activity in the Human Body for Every Kid book. I thought it was fun tricking our brains too.

I really meant to take pictures this week of the kids completing their school activities, however, the kids took plenty for me instead....of their pets...enjoy!

Yep! It's a circus around here :)

  2. I love the description of your son under the "art" section! You perfectly described my son! I even laughed out loud. It's always nice to know you're not the only one :)

    1. Thanks! Last year, I was ready to throw in the towel on art. He survived!
