Weekly Wrap Up - Valentine's Week

This week seemed to be all about the Valentines. On Monday we attended a Valentine's Party at a good friend's house. We visited with some great home schooling moms and ate lots of great treats. 

Wednesday saw us at another Valentine's Party that we hosted at an assisted living home. That was
very rewarding and fun. All the residents were so nice to us. 

On Monday all I scheduled for school was art. Grace did some art projects out of two books we are reviewing and we read about an children's book illustrator's life. How she got started in the business, etc. The above picture was from another art lesson she did yesterday.

Some of the subjects we learned about this week were, in no particular order:
World War II
Area of Polygons
Who Am I Devotions
Early European Villages/Stonehenge
Roger Williams and Deciphering Codes
Olympic Peninsula 
Prepositional Phrases
Seals and Sea Cows

Classes Grace Attended:

What We Read this Week:

Good week- so much covered!
And wonderful job, Grace, on the drawing. You've come a long way :) Do you look back at what you did, oh, say years ago, and see how you've grown? My dd does that a lot.
