It's time for the Weekly Wrap-Up hosted by Kris. It always amazes me how quickly the week goes by.
Our week was crazy and I'm not sure why. Due to the "big snow" a lot of stuff was cancelled yet we still managed to get behind. Something about being "snowed-in" makes you just want to lay around doing nothing I guess. We managed to finish up what we needed to but for a while that didn't seem likely. LOL
Here's our run-down.
We talked about Jesus and water this week. LOL Sounds strange but He sure did have some interesting miracles involving water. Water to wine, walking on water, stopping a storm. Not to mention creating it.
We continued our study about weather. We talked a bit about clouds this week. Mackenzie was supposed to track the clouds in the sky for a day and write down what time of clouds she thought they were. This assignment pained her because we had "icky" clouds because of the unusal snow we had. She was in tears because she wasn't sure what kind of clouds they were.
Bless her heart.
She's starting to work on her 7's now. Specifically counting by this week. She has decided she doesn't like 7s. Apparently 7 isn't her lucky number.
The American Revolution is really picking up. We learned that we annouced our independence on July 2 and declared it on July 4. We learned that Thomas Jefferson wrote it based on ideas that people held around the world because he really wanted everyone to understand that this decision wasn't one made lightly. We learned that this wonderful document has motivated and encouraged countries around the world, past and present. We looked back on the pictures we have when we went to see the Declaration of Independence at our local library. We're planning to take a trip to D.C. over spring break (because we want to go with some P.S. cousins) and we're excited to see the copy with the signatures.
Mackenzie has started reading Meet George Washington and is hoping that we'll be able to hit Mount Vernon when we head up to D.C. She was excited to learn that it isn't too far from where we live. I haven't been there since 8th grade, so I'm excited too.
We finished Johnny Tremaine. Of course it was awesome. And sad, as great books often are.
Still working on those prepositions. And Mackenzie memorized A Time to Talk by Robert Frost.
And yesterday we celebrated a very special day.
