I Wish....


....That we were going to be finished with school by the time that we leave for Texas next week.
I can see that that is not going to be the case and we are going to be back at it when we get back. I would love to be the kind of person that can just say "bag it" and be done, but I have this thing about getting to the end of the books.

We will finish a few things by then. We haven't gotten to the end of the History book, only halfway actually, but that is much further than I intended to go. We were only going to do ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, but we ended up getting all the way to the middle ages! We used so many more supplemental resources, that I am going to have to sit down and put them all into Homeschool Tracker, and then print them out for our review!

We are also done with Religion, and most of our English workbooks. Spelling will be done at the end of this week! Science is almost there. John has a couple more chapters and the other boys are about one unit away. We didn't get in as many projects as I would have liked but everyone did their reading and vocabulary.
I think the plays were the big hit of the year as far as projects.
"Search for Delicious" was such a great experience for Brendan and Paul. Taking a book, and turning it into a play, complete with scenery and costumes, was huge!
John is participating in a Shakespeare play for the third year and it is going really well! "The Merchant of Venice" may well be the best yet! I am working on costumes and having a wonderful time!

Math is going to be the one that drags on and on....Everyone is doing well, and they all totally get it, but it is a struggle every day to get the lessons done. We are all just itching for Summer break.

Spending time with Laura, Andrew and the littles will be such a welcome respite! We are all just going to soak up the sweetness.....
