Big kid tried Mapping the World by Heart at a local co-op for the past few weeks but it wasn't a good fit for him, so we decided to drop out. I love the idea of the curriculum, though, so I purchased it through the Homeschool Buyers Co-op so we can do it at home together instead. This is the first time he has tried a class and not loved it, so I am okay with him deciding it wasn't for him. While home, he finished a book he's been reading for awhile, Wings of Fire, and all of us listened to one of my favorites from childhood: Half Magic! We have started listening to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe now, it's nice to use audiobooks sometimes and a good skill to work on.
Soccer is in full swing, which Little kid does and loves, and we have been practicing a lot in the backyard! Some other fun stuff we did this week: engineering walls (materials engineering with mortar), handwriting, study of some mid-Atlantic states, finishing up a 1500 piece puzzle (minus two pieces that disappeared) and poring over our new Student Atlas.
