Well I don't know what the weather was like at your house but it was hot here. Crazy hot!
So we packed up our suits and towels and headed for Water Country. A few hours floating down the lazy river was a great way to beat the heat.
And that was pretty much all that we accomplished this week. LOL
So in light of our easy week, I thought I'd share what we have planned for Mackenzie in sixth grade. Typing out the words sixth grade in reference to my daughter made me a tad sick to my stomach. Boo to middle school!
BibleWe'll be doing a little combo for Bible this year, since we've received so many wonderful review items for this subject. The Apologia is more of a devotional type study and the Classical Academic Press is more of a "study the Bible" study. I think they'll compliment each other well. And we're only about half done with both of them so together they will get us through the school year.
