We have had a great week .. so many memories were built this week. Our usual lessons proceeded and the days surrounding each were filled with a variety of extra-curricular endeavors.
We took part in a swim meet – our last for 2013.
Both kids did very well – improving on most all of their swims.
We took part in our third homeschool art show (which I happen to coordinate). Buddy’s Lego Minecraft entry was voted the 2nd place favorite amongst the youngers.
We created poppy themed art in honor of Veteran’s Day. We shared this craft with the kids at the art show and everyone made a small thank you card for the Veteran’s home which we delivered later that day.
At Barnesklubb, we learned how to create the traditional Finnish handcraft called Himmeli.
We brought home a new friend … a Bearded Dragon (my second). I just loved his colors – amber, light green, and variegated browns. We named him Dué (meaning too or also in Italian).
At the lodge meeting, we gave a multimedia presentation on our recent holiday in China. It was our turn to bring the refreshments so we brought snacks common in China (e.g. sesame cookies, rice cakes, lychee fruit, and moon cakes).
The kids attended a Minecraft MakerBot 3D Printing class. I will share more about this fabulous class soon.
