Weekly Wrap-Up: Co-op Week

This week we finished up Who is God? from Apologia, and loved it. Due to tight finances I won't be able to purchase the next book in the series until next month. I looked through our shelves to find something to use for daily devotions and came up with Scripture Adventures Acts of the Apostles. I received it sometime last year as a free download. Grace is always complaining that we haven't spent enough time in the New Testament, so now we are.

Most of this week was consumed with preparation and teaching for Creative Christian Cooperative. A fine arts cooperative started by me and a close friend. We were so blessed with 45 students signing up. Tuesday for Grace was art and drama, while Thursday was choir and dance. I taught a puppetry arts  and art journaling class. Grace also started back with her traveling drama ministry team, Acts of Faith.

We continued with our Vintage Remedies book and read about healthy alternatives to drink in place of soda and sugary drinks. Grace picked up a couple of new books from the library for independent reading. I have become a little obsessed with youth fiction lately. Currently I am reading the Divergent Series, Immortals Series, and not so patiently waiting to order the new Micheal Vey book which came out this week. If you are not aware of this series by Richard Paul Evans, you definitely need to check it out.

Exercise fell by the wayside for both me and Grace this week due to the cooperative and learning a new schedule. Although we did get to Jazzercise two morning and walked one night. Hopefully this weekend we will jump back on the wagon.

To check out what other families did this week in their homeschool be sure to visit The Weekly Wrap-Up.

Sounds like you have a ton going on! Loved hearing about your busy week and all of the fine arts you got a chance to do! Love to art journal!

Looks like a very, very busy week, but so much fun!

Art coop seems like a great idea.

Have a blessed weekend.

An art coop! I would love to do something like that if it were offered around here. And puppetry too? (Sings the Lonely Goatherd Song from Sound of Music)Sounds like a blast!

I love the idea of an Art Co-op. I know Keilee would love. Our Co-op offers Art but not a class with so many different ways of expressing. Can't wait to hear more about this.

Exercise, ah, you got me. I've been wanting to get back to my walking for a while now, but haven't forced myself to take the first step.
