We have had a packed out week full of fun, learning and quality family time! It has been the kind of week that your proud of and feel satisfied from. The kind of week where you are happy to be a homeschooler and get the warm fuzzy feeling of seeing the results to all the hard work it takes. Maybe it is because we have made a conscious effort to keep this week 100% Christ centered. I know that should be the goal of every week but as this is Holy Week we have all made that a priority and you know what…it worked! (You can join in a unanimous DUH now. haha)
Everyday I have had something super fun planed to celebrate Holy Week. I posted some of the resources we are using and how we chose to keep Easter simple this year in my “Keeping Holy Week…Holy!” post.
Monday we made a “Resurrection Set”. The girls have had a good time acting out the story of the Passion using this great printable.
|Here is our progress so far.|
|I know that Yamakas are usually for boys.
But it helps the kids to remember that this is a special time.
|Getting ready to hide the Afikomen.|
|Matzah and the Matzah Tosh.|
|Our Seder meal table.|
We finally completed our “Human Body” science unit. This was a fun science unit and we all learned so much about how are bodies work and how we can keep them healthy.
|Our finished “Our Body” models.|
This week’s recipe of the week was “Country Apple Cake”.
I also found out that we won a giveaway for tickets to a local homeschool conference! thank you so much “Sidetracked Sarah”! I have wanted to go to one for a long time but we could never fit it in our schedule. This year it will work out and I’m super excited!! Do you go to a homeschool conference? Tell me about your experiences!
I have to take a moment to brag….
My Alma Mater Wichita State University made it to the elite 8 in the NCAA March Madness tournament!!!! Not that I had anything to do with it but it is nice to see your school do well and be proud to come from it. Especially since it is such a small university compared to some of the giants in the tournament!
