Weekly Wrap-Up: The One with Storms, Music, & Bloggy Goodness

We had quite the unusual week…  Despite living in Alabama for about a year and a half, I still am not used to tornadoes.  Ice storms I can do.  Hurricanes I can do.  Tornadoes and the accompanying huddling in the bathroom I can’t do.  Well, I can, because I did, but I don’t like it.  Three times this week we were hanging out with the toilet…

Our Homeschool Week

Math - Babydoll did quite a bit of cooking and baking this week, exercising those math application skills.  She baked muffins for breakfast a couple of times, made delicious sub sandwiches one night, made Russian dressing to go with those subs, and perused several recipes that she’ll be preparing this coming week.

Unit Studies - We continued to work on our chocolate unit study.  We’ve learned about two chocolatiers, rainforests, cacao trees, Brazil, and tons of other stuff.

Music – This week we went to see the Alabama Symphony Orchestra’s Young People’s Concert Series Spring Concert, Dream Out Loud {man, that’s a mouthful}.  This is our second Young People’s concert, and we enjoyed it.  We had killer seats, just a couple of feet from the stage.  

As promised, I’ve got a couple of great links for you.  While you can’t attend the concert, you can download the study guide and music files.  There is tons of great info in this guide, and you could easily build a little study out of it.

History – We continued our study of Medieval China; we are almost done!  This week we learned aboug Kublai Khan and Marco Polo.

Reading – Babydoll did all sorts of free reading this week.

That’s about it, not our usual type of week, but it was a refreshing change.

What about you?  How was your week?  What did you accomplish?
