Fake Cough Somewhere Else Please

I just kicked my cat off my knee because honestly, that can be really annoying sometimes. She is now off to the side fake coughing. Iza is her name (pronounced Ee-suh) and she fake coughs for punishment. Like when you kick her off the bed at night because she is sleeping on your hip and it is starting to ache. She'll stand on the floor beside the bed and fake cough until she wakes someone up, usually the baby. I can't get mad at her though because she is a senior citizen now.
Also a subtle reminder to my husband who may or may not be reading this. These black, size 8 for the puking in my boots incident.


It has been really rainy this week so Roo decided to perk up the day with a really spring-like, colourful ensemble. I personally love cloudy, rainy days but I am staring to notice that isn't the norm and most people prefer sunshine.

What we finished this week:  

Memory Work - Mr. Nobody is almost memorized. I need to go through my Living Memory book to find some more ideas for memory work.

Spelling (All About Spelling) - We are on level 1 section 24. I am going to draw out the last section until all of the cards in the review sections are moved to the mastered section.

First Language Lessons - Lessons 91-93, Sunflower poem, sentences/fragments and statements.

Writing with Ease - Completed week 30 of copy work and narration exercises from the Buddhist Stories The Jataka Tales. 

Latin (Song School Latin) - New outdoor words and review. We are on the final chapter, the summer will probably be review of the entire book. I got a laminating machine (hooray!) and finished laminating about half of the Song School Latin flashcards I made. I forgot how much I do not enjoy colouring.


French (Nallenart) - Unit 10.1 numbers from 13-29 and 10.2 fruit.

Math - Two-three pages of Math Mammoth 1A subtraction and addition review. I need to buy an abacus before we move onto the next section of larger addition problems. 

History (Story of the World) - We finished chapter 29 Life on the Ganges River, The Castes of Ancient India and Siddhartha aka Buddha. We then read about Buddhism in the Usborne World Religion Book. She googled Buddhas and decided she would like a statue of one. 

The Usborne Encyclopedia of World Religions: Internet-Linked (World Cultures)

Science (Elemental) - From our body study this week we studied...............poop. Well, it was actually the digestive system but she was fixated on the poop section. There has been much poop talk over the last 24 hours.

Geography - The capitals and provinces of Canada are now known and we decided she wanted to venture over to Europe next, since next year we will be studying the middle ages (my favourite time period). She started with the Nordic countries and we will do section by section via Sheppard Software.

Composer Study - We listened again to The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi and read his biography and placed where he lived on a map.

Love the socks. Those are great. My sister (30) would totally wear them. I'd wear them, under jeans.

If she's loving poo, you might take a small detour to check out dung beetles... cool, in a gross kind of way.

I love rainy days! Sometimes I totally crave a gloomy day that gives me permission to lounge on the sofa with a book and a blanket. Colorado gets over 300 days of sunshine. It's very monotonous.
