Weekly Wrap - A Strange Week When There's Sickness in the House

It's been a rather strange week of school here at 'The Circus'.  We had the flu blow through the house in increments.  First it was my 9 and 11 year olds and I on Sunday-Monday.  Since my oldest is self-sufficient, he managed to keep up with his studies until Wednesday morning.  Wednesday-Thursday he was laying low but the three of us were better and back at our schedule.  Hubby however was down for the whole week!

In between, we had time for read alouds and working on a large color-in map of the United States....  We finished up Understood Betsy.  What a GREAT book!

And by Friday, we were all well enough to attend our "Non co-op co-op" Flying Creatures science class to make birdhouses!   I'm so thankful for our homeschool Dad who took the time to design and cut out all these pieces!

Painting will take place next science co-op meeting.  I'm looking forward to seeing each child's masterpiece!
