Friday Review ~ Winslow Homer and Ice Cream

We had a great week.  Our theme this week was art and our artist was Winslow Homer.  We are doing great with our new schedule.  I can see already that having more organized days will bring more calmness to our home.

1)  We love our new Ice Cream maker.  Everyone is watching our latest favorite ~ raspberry coconut milk ice cream. 
2) We spent some great time hanging around our local science museum.
3) We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Life of Fred  books.  My kids talk about them and work out the problems in their free time.
4)  We really enjoyed doing an Artist Study on Winslow Homer.  The kids all did watercolor landscapes. 
5) Little Red Ridinghood and Tom Sawyer are having so much fun with the piano.  They are currently learning child friendly versions of " Joy to the World" and "Ode to Joy".
6)  We did for Winslow Homer picture studies this week.  The kids liked "Snap the Whip" and "A Fog Warning" best.

  4. FUn! I don't know if you would want to do more, but we did a unit study on Ice cream from Homeschool Share a couple of summers ago and it was a lot of fun learning some facts and history - and of course eating ice cream.
