Weekly Highlights

Homeschool Week

This week we wrapped up our first semester of school. My boys, 9th and 10th grades, did great on their exams and have averages of 95 or higher in all of their subjects.

IMG_20171214_134552My oldest son is taking Apologia’s Advanced Biology and this week was the first dissection lab for the course. He had to dissect a cow eye. My younger son who is taking biology helped my older son. They both learned so much and had a good time. They were confused with the directions that Apologia provided, but I was able to find better directions with pictures from the Home Science Tools website where I ordered the lab kit.

In the next few modules, he will also dissect a sheep heart and a fetal pig.

We are still going to do school work until next Friday before taking a two week break.

We will probably take a couple of field trips during our break. We have a year membership to the aquarium and we love going there every couple of months.

A new playground opened up near where we live and my youngest daughter wants to check it out.

Not much is happening around here right now, just working our way to having a break. Have a great week before Christmas!
