J-term was GREAT! I still am unsure why Gavin CHOSE to do 2.5 hours of Physics daily- but he survived. Connor had a good school month. Ki enjoys his Church History, Culture, and Acting classes! G&C were fairly independent, but Ki was all ONE-ON-ONE and I need a break.And Gavin's brain seems to need a bit of a rest for all that Physics.
So we are taking the first week of FEB off from schooling. But we'll do a few fun things (and a few dr appointments)
I made lists/plans for the boys for their 3-WEEK*F-TERM.
all CD-ROM (independent) stuff with a little workbook for Ki (and reading for all).
Here are their lists: (I will email these too them)
GAVIN’S FEB SCHOOL (15)
• PHYSICS (Apologia CD)
• Beat The Market –Economics (Your Laptop)
