It’s been for.ever since I’ve posted a Homeschool Weekly Wrap-up, and so I figure, why not?
This week has been pretty nice, homeschooling-wise. Actually, since we started again after Christmas, it’s been going really, really well. Weird.
This week the boys have been happily working on a (gaming-related) project for school. They get to use the computers, play video games, and take screenshots, and I get to sit back and watch them. It’s a win/win! And they are totally loving it.
Yes, my 10-year old is playing Borderlands. For school. Don’t judge me.
We’ve also been collecting eggs like mad again. Our girls went through a molt in the fall. Well, two of them did. This resulted in Helga (our Americauna, Ms. Personality) ceasing egg production for FOUR months.
We were beginning to wonder if she was ever going to lay again, and then she started back up again just before Christmas. The other one just went down to a few eggs per week. We’re not sure the third one is ever going to molt!
What these girls have figured out though, is where food comes from. They know it comes from me. So much, that we have one rogue hen who has decided to come tell me, every day, that she wants food. Even when they’re NOT out of food.
She is becoming more obnoxious by the day. Yesterday she flew at me from the barbecue when I walked up to the sliding glass door. I was inside. She hasn’t figured out the doggy door yet, but I’m afraid it’s just a matter of time.
But back to school now.
We’re working on a lot of computerized school work, from math curriculum, to online spelling, presentation projects, and some miscellaneous history lesson plans I stumbled across at Easy Peasy All in One Homeschooling. Good stuff there!
This is going to be D1′s masterpiece!
