Week Two Wrap Up

We finished The Midwife’s Apprentice by Karen Cushman. It was the perfect start to our language arts year.

“Jane Sharp! It is I, Alyce, your apprentice. I have come back. If you do not let me in, I will try again and again. I can do what you tell me and take what you give me, and I know now to try and risk and fail and try again and not give up. I will not go away.”

The door opened. Alyce went in. And the cat followed her.

I hope I can remember Alyce when the going gets tough.

Thursday evening was a math lesson with Gommy and playtime with Boppa.  The girls treasure this time devoted to Gommy. And Wallace was making us all laugh with his antics.  He has developed such a sense of humor; it cracks me up!

We finished Lief the Lucky by Ingri and Edgar D’Aulaire and so delved into the geography of northern Europe, Island, Greenland, and North America.

We ended the week with a trail walk in a new spot with our lovely group of homeschool friends.  I loved watching the bigger kids pass the babies back and forth on the way back.
