Weekly Wrap Up- The Wyoming Edition


Another fast paced week has raced by me!!   We had a productive week.  Monday was pretty normal.  Tuesday was only school and ballet.  Wednesday was choir and Awana.  Thursday was a super busy day.  The girls had dentist appointments in the morning (no cavities!!), followed by our Activity Day meeting in the afternoon and then ballet in the evening.  Friday was supposed to be piano, but Olivia’s teacher suffered a pretty serious concussion over the weekend and is out of commission for a while.

Geography:  Wyoming is the 10th largest state, but it comes in dead last on population.   I’d love to be in those wide open spaces!!   We studied Buffalo Bill Cody and Chief Red Cloud to round out our state study.

Books we used:
Wyoming; by G.S. Prentzas
Wyoming; by Nathaniel Burt
Buffalo Bill Cody, Showman of the Wild West; by William R. Sandford and Carl R. Green
Buffalo Bill Cody; by Charles J. Shields
Buffalo Bill Cody Western Legend; Karen Bornemann Spies
Red Cloud Sioux Warrior; by William R. Sandford
Chief Red Cloud; by Judy Monroe

Science:  We learned more about changes to matter (water-ice-steam).   Did a few fun experiments and enjoyed some melted chocolate!

Math, language arts, writing and spelling went well.  Nothing major to report though.

I was happy to be listed among the Top 100 Homeschool Blogs this week.  I’m not sure how I made the list, but was in excellent company!  Be sure to check it out.

We are expecting our first major storm of the winter over night.  Ice….bleck.   Have a great weekend, stay warm and visit the Weekly Wrap Up!

Pin It!


  1. I'm on the list, too: a nice compliment. We just have rainy, abnormally warm weather here. If it didn't mean massive power outages, I wouldn't mind some winter weather here!

  2. Me too! Congratulations! About 2-3 inches of new snow fell today and 6 inches the other day. The frigid temperatures are getting to me though! Snow's OK, NEGATIVE DOUBLE DIGITS aren't! Ugh! ;)


Thank you for stopping by!
