We had another pretty good week, despite a couple of little girls who decided to get colds. One at a time, of course. And some really nice 70's weather trying to distract us.
Our lesson this week was on Jesus raising the dead. We talked again about how faith in Jesus can lead to miraculous things. Although not always someone being raised from the dead. =o)
Mackenzie learned her x8s this week, which was her last one to learn. Next she'll be moving on to double digit addition.
We talked about contractions and conjunctions in FLL. Mackenzie wants you to know that a sentence diagram with conjunctions in it looks "cool." So now you know. LOL We worked on commas in a series in WWE.
We're still working on weather and talked a lot about how air pressure can affect the weather. We did a fun experiment, with a cup of water and an index card, that showed what air pressure can do.
She had her doubts as to whether air pressure was really going to keep that water in, despite watching Justin from Sonlight do it first.
She was very happy when it did right. Then she had to admit that she should've known that Justin would not steer her wrong in such matters.
We are reading some good stuff, Carry on Mr. Bowditch and The Story of Eli Whitney. (Mackenzie is still reading about Martha Washington as her reader.) We are loving both and, according to Mackenzie, they are... "true Sonlight picks. They make you so emotional but you can't put them down." 'Nuff said.
