This week went by so fast but ended on a really fun note for the kids. We actually got away for a night and I even got to tie homeschool into our get away! I love when I can do that. What’s even more I love that the kids had fun! I am waiting patiently for the end of the month to come so I can order our new curriculum for the year.
Welcome to another look into our crazy busy homeschool week. This week was crazy with appointments! Next week is crazy with appointments and we have another Yippe Conference next weekend. One more after this one. This one should be a lot of fun though. However, that hasn’t happened yet so we can’t talk about it. LOL
This week was a pretty good week. I was suppose to finish up babysitting and Friday was to be my last day. My daughter was still sick on Monday so I had to take her back in. We found out that she needs to see a cardiologist and I thought it was best for all of us if I just ended it sooner. I am pretty sure they were upset because I didn’t get a response. I don’t feel guilty anymore because I did what I thought was best for my daughter. The kids really were able to focus and do artsy things again. We haven’t been able to do that for the past few months.

Learn how to make your own paper plate sundial! It is super easy to make and it is fun to observe time as it passes. The reason for the sundial experiment was we are learning about astronomy. Today we talked about calendars, moon phases, constellations, and seasons. People used these different things to tell what time or season it was.
A sundial is a clock that uses the suns position to tell time. The sundial has a rod that sticks up and the rod casts a shadow. On the surface there are markings that are used to tell time.
