Weekly Wrap Up - What A Week

Let me say, THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL POST.   However, we've had some interesting learning experiences this week as we've watched the election and its repercussions.   We've talked about how to be a gracious winner and loser.  We've watched as both Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton walked out their final roles in the election process, with class and dignity.  We've also discussed the difference between protesting, rioting and ridiculousness.  Moving on now.

We've had a good week, with lots of activity and scheduling juggling.   Lindsey's piano teacher cancelled lessons Monday due to being ill.   Tuesday of course was election day and that took longer than usual, but I'm good with that because it meant a better voter turnout than normal.   Wednesday was co-op from 9am-12, then I had a meeting from 5:30-6:30pm, a brief homeschooling info meeting from 6:30-7pm, followed by a class from 7-8:30pm.   Thursday the girls and I went out to lunch with a family member.   Friday was IEW and my best friend came out for the afternoon and did a photo session with the girls.  I'm hoping to have photos for you next week.   We also managed to get to the gym every morning this week except for Wednesday.

The weekend looks just as busy, more so really.

Academics went smoothly.  In geography, Olivia created a topographic salt dough map of Virginia.  I find that kids of all ages enjoy creating projects when given the time and resources, and sometimes it's just nice to get to close the books and do something different.
Also on the blog this week, I'm giving away a copy of the book  Love at First First Fight.  To read more about the book, pop over here to enter for a chance to win.

I hope you all have a great weekend!
