Home Economics ~ Anne is not a big fan of chicken. She was not thrilled to be assigned to learn how to roast a whole chicken and then divide it into multiple meals. However, she complied and willingly did her assignment. She washed, oiled and prepared the chicken for roasting. It came out perfect.
Preparing for the Showcase ~ This was tech week and the showcase starts tonight. There will be three shows over the weekend. Anne spent much of the week finishing up projects and putting costumes together. She has two "quick changes" with no time at all between dances. She is literally changing in the wings. She is in 10 of the 16 dances and is loving every minute of it. Many of her costumes are simple for this show, so I only took pictures of the more exciting ones. Mostly, she is in matching solid color leotards and plain skirts.

(She does have a leotard under the t-shirt.)
|Things people say to us or we think about ourselves that reduce our self esteem are written on this t-shirt.|
Tools used include:
- measuring tools
- sand paper
- spray paint
- power drill
- electrical tape
The rest of the school week was filled with biology lessons, math lessons and literature. We completed Stig of the Dump, watched Agatha Christie's The Crooked House and started The War of The Worlds.
What a blessing it is to homeschool!
