Our Week Ending 9-11-2008

We had a fabulous week!

We crammed 4 days of work into 3 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so that we could go to the Carlos Museum on Monday. I blogged about it here.

The kids, my mom and I had so much fun! My only complaint is that we didn't get to spend much time looking at the artifacts from the Ancient Americas - and we'd just spent all weekend studying about the Ancient Americas. So, I emailed the director of the program - she asked for some pictures, since I, the new-camera-obsessed woman I've become, was the only one with a camera. In the email, I asked if we could spend 10-15 minutes in the exhibit at the next Monday at the Museum. She replied, "Of course!" (So, Michele, meet us there in October!) The next story will be read in the Ancient Greeks collection and we're about to embark on a month long study of Ancient Greece, so I need those minutes in the collection!

Our craft project at the Museum:





Unfortunately, because of the weather (not that I'm complaining about the rain, we need it), we haven't been able to meet our home school group for park outings the past couple of weeks. Maybe soon!

Now, I'm off to start this week!

I'm in as long as I get to eat at that vegetarian restaurant around the corner!

And since there is no escalator - can Nutmeg wear her crocs? Or will you pretend you do not know us?

Sounds like a fun museum. I wish we lived closer to the museums! We have to make a hour drive.

I don't know if I would say my son "enjoy" 100 easy lessons but he does it. The lessons are getting longer so he is getting a little bit squirmy. But we will stick with it. My older son learned to read using it and he is a pretty strong reader.

The museum trip sounds fun. I love those type of outings and my kids enjoy them.
The month long Ancient Greece study sounds like it will be so interesting. I'll check back in on that one.
Sounds like a great week.
