One of the most exciting things that happened this week for me was that Mason decided that he wanted to cut his hair. He hadn't had a hair cut in about a year (literally)!
Mason and Duncan both finished their math programs for the year this week! Interestingly, neither of them want to take an extended break from math so they'll be starting their new programs next week, though just a few days a week until summer break.
The main highlight of the week was art class. My children completed an art lesson using pastel chalk, a new art medium for them. The art lesson was a bonus lesson included on the first DVD of the art curriculum by See the Light. I am reviewing this item for The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew and the art project fit perfectly into our art curriculum given that Easter is right around the corner.
The DVD lesson took my children step by step through the process of creating a chalk art drawing perfect for the Easter season. I was SO impressed with the results. I'm going to be looking for inexpensive frames for their finished art as they are truly lovely.
|Duncan (9) loved his picture and commented that he is getting better and better at art.|
