Summer Weekly Wrap-Up ~ Week 2

What a week! We had a great time this past week and spent a lot of time outside. We love summer, being able to stay outside all day and late into the evening, eating fresh fruits and veggies from the farm stands, visiting parks and beaches, going for bike rides and more! We didn't do as much "school stuff" because we were having so much fun outside, which is just fine since we are on our summer break anyway!

Here is the breakdown for the week:

- Adrienne completed 11 lessons in her Teaching Textbooks Math Pre-Algebra! She started doubling up her lessons on Tuesday and is completing another 2 today.
- Andre did 1 lesson in Math
- Celeste did one lesson in Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading, and read two pages in her Elson Reader. She also read a few picture books herself!
- Together, we completed one day of study in Prehistory, which included two lessons about the creatures of the sea from 510 to 408 millions years ago and the first fish.

We started a new read aloud, Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi. We all decided to work our way through these lists. I might add a tab at the top of the blog to keep track of what we all read.

This past week, we visited a favourite park in Kingsville and had a family picnic there. We brought Orion along and he loved digging in the sand at the beach and swimming in the lake. It was a beautiful day! 

I had planned a fun day at our local splashpad for our homeschool group. We didn't have a great turnout because the "fishflies" are here, but we still had a great time.

We had a few days when my husband was home this week, so we took advantage of it. We decided to explore a bit and visited a new-to-us provincial park. This one was on Lake Erie and about an hour drive from us. The area was beautiful and we had brought a picnic along. Unfortunately, we weren't able to stay because of the biting flies there. We think they may be black flies, but we are not sure. They swarmed us as soon as we stood still, so we kept moving around. We even ate our lunch while walking. We were able to still have some fun and found a lot of "lake" glass, but we didn't stay as long as we had planned. We will try again in a couple of weeks!

We had an awesome and fun week! How was yours?

  1. Wow! Look at all that sea glass you found! My kids are ALWAYS searching for it, but I think the beaches we go to are all "picked over". It's hard to even find shells! Sounds like a very balanced, enjoyable week! Stopping by from Weekly Wrap-up!
