Our Week In Pictures – February 2016

Our Week In Pictures – February 2016

Last week -A look inside our homeschool!

We had an amazing week! First of all, it was World Kindness Week and we had a great time with that! We downloaded some inspirational bookmarks from The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation and left them tucked in books at the local library.

We were snowed in a few days but it turned out to be a blessing. Usually, our kindness acts are focused on strangers but while we were snowbound we focused on each other. Using Shari’s Berries Kindness Generator we got some great ideas. T got this one.


Well, I was the only someone present! I asked if I could pick the book and he let me. My very favorite book ever is Blueberries For Sal. I thought he might give me a hard time or call it a baby story but instead, he read it to me without complaint. I did detect some amusement. It was awesome!  I love the art in this book! Every picture is drawn in ink.

I decided to do him a kindness too. His bathroom has been decorated in pirates for a few years now. He has outgrown them. My Mom and I repainted his bathroom gray and added a vintage sign, a fun, new shower curtain and a faucet towel rack along with thick, black bath mats and it looks all grown up now. He is thrilled. He did a life lesson on wall painting a few months ago so he was spared any participation in this overhaul.


When the weather cleared and we could finally get out the house we made a day of it. We like to visit Applebee’s and take advantage of their half price appetizers. T loves the hot wings!


Our Science classes were great this week. We started a new book and it is fun and informative.  One of the things we learned this week was about fermentation. We even did this experiment.

After taking part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, we have been really enjoying our birds. My favorites are the chickadees but T loves our cardinals best!

The weather has been crazy. It snowed through the first part of last week and then felt like Spring for a day or two and then froze us again. I have taken advantage of fuzzy blankets and hot coffee a lot this week.
