Weekly Recap: May 6 - May 10, 2013

It's been awhile since I updated.  We've been busy living life with not so much time or energy left over for documenting the living.  Since our time in Florida we are working on completing our school year.  As of this week, we are finished with our history, grammar, reading...  Really, everything but Bible, math and physics. As a solution to our lack of physics done this year, we are having a physics intensive month.  So far, it's worked beautifully. 

Since spring break, we enjoyed the company of sisters and cousins, hatched 6 pullets (baby turkeys), pulled off a gorgeous prom for K16, and obtained three calves.  It's been a busy, fun filled time.  Currently we are waiting on the delivery of  two Columbia ewes and have about 3 dozen more turkey eggs in the incubator.  Never a dull moment around here.

Our state mandates that we have 900 hours of school time.  We aren't quite there yet so we will continue filling the time through May.   I think everyone is enjoying more fun reading and fewer lessons.  I know I am.

This week we ended our co-op time.  Each one of the children participated in a play.  We enjoyed M8 in her performance as Annie Christmas, the Keelboat Queen.  S11 gave an outstanding performance as an alien.  As Bill Sikes,  H14 was positively villainous.  It was a fun week.

Over the next three weeks we'll be concentrating on physics, finishing our Bible curriculum, and completing our testing for the state.  For our grand finale to the 2012-13 school year we'll be taking a fabulous sight seeing, educational field trip.  I'll be sure to share pictures.
