The Boy has been hard at work this week.  He’s in the middle of a research unit in his language arts curriculum so he’s covered other aspects of language arts through Kim Garcia’s Escape of the Killer Noun.  This has been a great way to keep him fresh on grammar components while learning how to research.  He has loved this book and is ready for more in this series!   
 
He also spent time finishing a Lifepac math unit, experimenting with lung function, learning about the wars between the Athenians and Spartans, and exploring Antarctica through CurrClick’s Magic Tree House Club.  Not a bad week at all!

Letter U brought lots of silliness our way.  Prissy’s Letter of the Week covered underwear, unicorns, and umbrellas!   You’d be surprised by how many underwear books you can find in the children’s section of your local library!

The Rest of It

We had a chance to ditch our to-do list yesterday and spend some time with friends instead.  We’re so glad we did!  It’s not everyday that you come across a “pirate ship” while enjoying a boat ride.  We also grabbed a couple of hermit crabs before heading home.  The Boy chose Rocky, shown in the picture below, while Prissy picked Pony be her new best friend.

 Wrapping Up

Summer has arrived for The Rundown, too.  Our weekly review posts are taking a brief hiatus, but will be back once our summer schedule settles down. With Hubby’s work in youth and children’s ministry, our summers revolve around church-related traveling and activities. Here’s what our homeschool will look like while we’re helping Hubby:
While we school through our summers, we lighten the load quite a bit.  The Boy will continue working on math and some element of language arts nearly every day.  Other subjects like history, science, and fine arts will show up once a week or twice at the most. 
As for Prissy, her Letter of the Week time is nearly finished.  Once we get through Z, I’ll use printable packs with her favorite characters to help her review what she’s learned this year. 
 
That’s it for now… Enjoy summer at your table!
