Homeschool Highlights - Week of May 8, 2011


What a weekend!  Morgan's prom was yesterday and the afterprom was today, so we are all out of whack!

Read aloud:  We read a pile of books.  My favorite one was called Celebrating Mother's Day.  It gave a great idea for making a memory box. 

Speaking of Mother's Day, Shayla designed my Mother's Day card and the grandma's and her biggest sister's.  (art)

Phys Ed:  Played outside all day on this beautiful day.  She had a great time playing with three of her cousins.  Running, jumping, swinging, playing baseball, and anything else you could imagine.
