It was a beautiful day and we had the missionaries over for dinner with homemade pizza, pear and blue cheese salad, carrot sticks, cucumbers, and hummus with apple and peach pies for dessert. Happy pi day! The kids are loving that it is warm enough to go out on our swing set.
Religion - Um, oops, we forgot to do it. It would have been review from the past week and our scripture memorization. I just spaced it.
Math - Turtle did his Funnix Math and the other kids did their Xtramath. Racer is at 92 now with his division and Chicklette has improved from 47 to 57 so they are both doing well.
Spelling - The kids both had a spelling test today and both got A+'s on them. Chicklette was very excited. Racer was a bit more blase, but still pleased.
History - We quickly finished up Nevada and put a bunch of animals on our boards since we found some more stickies. We enjoyed talking about the Hoover Dam because we've been there a few times as a family and because it was just featured on our America: The Story of US DVD. After we finished up Nevada, we read about Lyndon B. Johnson. We talked a little bit more about Vietnam and the effect it had on Johnson's presidency and we also discussed segregation and the Civil Rights Act. I really enjoyed learning a little bit more about this president and I love the Mike Venezia books about the presidents.
Ballet - Chicklette got off to ballet again today. She always says she hates going. I think she really hates interrupting her day and her free time after school and I know she hates getting her hair done. I think she actually enjoys the dancing though because she always comes home happy. Well, I've promised her that she won't have to do it next year so we'll see how she feels next year when she's not doing it.
