Weekly Wrap Up - Here There and Everywhere!

By Upatdawn @lisakeva
It has been a couple of very busy weeks here at The Circus!  My oldest is taking two high school level short-term classes that have really taken up a good deal of his time.  It's a good warm-up to see where we are 'strong' and where we can improve.  I'm happy to see that while it's been challenging, he has risen to a new level and met it head on!

So, with that, we've been doing a lot of reading, but not a lot of hands-on projects.
Starting with our history, we spent a week learning more about the removal of prayer from public schools and the legalization of abortion and the impact it had on society ~ The breakdown of the family!

Selected readings celebrating the wonder of life.  Hinds Feet on High Places --- a WONDERFUL Christian Allegory without witchcraft!
And then onto the 70's, Nixon's presidency and Watergate.

Did you celebrate Pi day?  (3.14 = March 14th).  We did!

After neglecting hands-on learning for FAR too long, we broke out the model kits and paints!
My boys assembled the kits and I helped draw in the camouflaging.

Fighter Jet kit from Consumer Crafts!  

My oldest LOVES the assembly, but not the painting. So, he passed his plane to his sister and let her do whatever she wanted.

My daughter's rendition of a fighter plane!

At first, she was going to do a 'pink' camouflaging, but, was inspired by a hummingbird instead!

Finally we got more done on our lapbooking.... My three oldest have done Multiplication Pizza Party from Hands of a Child in the 3rd grade.   I have to say, it's one of our favorites!
