What we did for Tuesday school ~
- Art ~ Painted our wooden snowman and gave him a new hat. Now he is ready to grace our front yard.
- History ~ Reviewed the Berlin Airlift and watched our Mormon Tabernacle Choir DVD about the "candy bomber". We looked at our authentic piece of the Berlin wall.
- Science ~ Made borax crystals and rock candy. We learned about heterogeneous and homogeneous solutions.
- English ~ Did lesson 8 in Cover Story.
Dean spent several hours at Miss Laura's house this week, working on painting a portrait. He has also been drawing a great deal this week. Below is one of his creations.
Anne needed a new pair of pointe shoes. Over the last five months, she saved up the entire $101 needed to purchase them. She saved all of her allowance, earned money doing chores at Grandma's house and worked a few extra jobs around here as well. She showed real dedication and was very pleased to be able to purchase them all by herself. I am so happy to see the lovely young lady she is turning into.
Lastly, my favorite picture of the week ~
