Week 6 Review

This was a short week.
Monday (Labor Day), the boys were still camping. In fact Ryan joined DH and David on the extreme night hike as a "junior helper."
Tuesday, we had Co-op classes.
Wednesday, was David's 16th birthday and I had to spend most of the morning at the DMV.
Thursday and Friday were our only normal school days this week.

We are now six weeks into the school year and I'm trying to do an early assessment of our curriculum hits and misses.

So far we are loving Tapestry of Grace, Spelling City, Khan Academy math videos (as a supplement) and Netflix. These are all new to us this year.

Rod and Staff and Vocabulary from the Roots Up are both staple items that we have used for several years and continue to enjoy.

I don't think we have really had any real misses yet, but I am reconsidering some of David's curriculum. The Apologia Chemistry is not meaty enough for him, so I'll have to work on this.

Ryan found an interesting Caterpillar in the yard and took this photo. I believe it is a Polyphemus Moth. They like to feed off hardwood trees, and we have several large maple trees in our yard.

The boys play a friendly game of airsoft.
