Only 5 weeks left in math and language arts. So excited!! A little longer in history but I imagine that it will go fast because Mackenzie is really into what we're studying (WW2) and has been reading ahead almost every day. Plus she's been reading extra books on top of that.
Science will take us the longest to complete because we had to put our insect study on hold due to the insane weather. Plus, I have a science unit I need to review, so that will hold us off a bit too.
But in exciting science news, I order our painted lady butterfly larva, ladybug larva, and a praying mantis egg case and they've arrived. Woot!! And even more exciting!! I found a site where you can order monarchs and milk weed plants. So they're on they're way. I ordered some milk weed seeds too so I can just plant milk weed and get monarchs to study that way.

|Here's where they kept Jefferson Davis after the war|
|The US flag they hung in his cell to mock him. LOL|
We spent the afternoon at the Mariner's Museum. I didn't take a ton of pictures, as we saw the Monitor and Merrimac exhibit again. It was just as fab the second time. If you're ever in the area, you shouldn't miss it. Awesome!
|Our crew ready for a scavenger hunt that the museum provides.|
|It includes these awesome hats|
|Woot! Some school work disguised as fun.|
|Designing their own ironclad|

And we went to the circus. Woot!
And that was our week. We're going to start off next week with a trip to Busch Gardens. Check out other Wrap-Ups over at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
