This week my cooperative had their 2nd annual Homeschool 101 event, and I packed up a nice rolly cart full of homeschooling goodies to share with everyone that came. I even managed to score some new-to-me books at the used book sale for $5! Mostly Magic School Bus = total win.
The event took place at the park where our classes will be held in the fall, and while we were there Haden spent the majority of his time learning to play Badminton with a group of kids from another group. He was fwacking the birdie pretty good by the time we left. 😛
Our cooking project this week was Lemon Brownies, and they were freakin’ AMAZING. Plus, easy to make. I will be making them again and again.
More pictures from this week…
The water in our fish tank must taste much yummier than the water in the water bowl, because my cats really prefer drinking from it.
In other news, we decided to revise the way we use our workboxes just a bit, because the original way just wasn’t working for us as I had hoped. Otherwise, I am still loving my drawers!
Oh, and I started reading the book, Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong. It is amazing so far, and if you haven’t read it, you REALLY should. I haven’t even made it all the way through the second chapter yet, and the things I have learned are astounding. I spent the earlier part of my day being completely appalled by the fact that we actually have a national holiday to celebrate Columbus. That’s pretty F’d up.
We spent the weekend with my family for my sister’s birthday, and enjoyed our time at Lake Jackson today. Here are a few more pictures for the road!
