What we did in our HS week of 7/25 to 7/29

If you've read my posts from last week, we went out to Louisiana. Homeschooling in the car CAN be fun - for an hour or so.

Although not on point with anything we're studying at the moment, we went to Vicksburg, MS, one day. The kids enjoyed climbing on the cannons and playing Yanks vs. Rebs with daddy at one of the forts. I enjoyed seeing the ironclad and visiting the Illinois memorial.

That same day, we also went to a spot called Poverty Point - indian mounds. It ties in nicely with our Ancient History studies - even though we haven't gotten to the Ancients of the Americas yet. Comparing and contrasting things we've learned about Ancient Egypt, Ancient Africa, and Ancient China to what we saw at Poverty Point was fun.

All-in-all, it was a relatively light week. We're getting into the swing of things again now that we're home.
