In my life this week…
Time to get caught up again. This is going to be a mix of highlights and the most recent. Basically what ever I can remember.
On Sunday we will present our year end portfolios effectively bring an end to the school year. We have a couple of things planned in the way of field trips and there is somethings to get caught up on. As always we will have some educational aspect to our summer as well.
First we had Ian’s first Communion. Here that happens in the grade two year of catechism.
Second Margaret had her Confirmation. She chose Theresa her confirmation name after Mother Theresa of Calcutta. She asked if she could use the name since Mother Theresa was in the process of becoming a Saint.
Our year end trip for Beavers was to a Wildlife Park about 2 hours north. All the animals are rescues that were not going survive in the wild. As an example the two Bald Eagles had run ins with trucks and can no longer fly. We don’t know how they ended up getting hit. At our old house we had to drive a couple of kilometers on a dirt road. There was a large owl that if we were just after sunset would sometimes appear above us. He would silently glide just in front of us. We figured out that he was using us to flush prey out of the grass.
In our homeschool this week…
Margaret has been working through a microscope book and did a wonderful drawing of a leaf under 10x magnification.
She also did Classification tree with the animal that we took pictures of at the aquarium.
They had year end performance at the music studio we go to. They have all done very well this year.
Grandpa has been taking them on Thursdays to do some art with them. This has been a great resource for them. Both have produced some wonderful pieces. I particularly like the exercise on perspective that Margaret did.
