MFW Highlights Wk30 Countries and Cultures

Week 30 MFW Countries and Cultures
Homeschool Wrap-Up

Theme for our studies this week…. Russia and the Arctic

 Great book/s we read…. We finished up The Magic Schoolbus Polar Bear Patrol and our family read-aloud Gladys Aylward.  We also watched the DVD The Gladys Aylward Story.

Gladys Aylward: The Adventure of a Lifetime (Christian Heroes: Then & Now)

Interesting facts we learned….The Kyrgyz who live in the snow-capped mountains in the country of Kyrgyzstan became an independent country once more in 1991.  We also learned that they eat the head of sheep.  An eye to eat so eyesight will improve and an ear to eat to remind the youngest to listen to their elders.
As Mom/teacher, I found this week to be….back to somewhat normal.  We have been visiting different therapists and doctors this summer trying to get a grasp on the reading and speech struggles one of our kids has had this past year.  This past week we had no visits and I have gotten into the routine of batch cooking and menu planning for our new diet.  With all that said this past week was a nice change of pace.
Favorite hands-on projects…. Baking bread and knitting with the girls.
Favorite extracurricular activity (if any this week)…. Hannah had a midweek sleepover.

We got excited when…. Lexi went poo poo in her potty.  Lexi has pottied three times now on her own initiative.
Craft idea for this week…. Knitting hats for the homeless.

I am praying for my children to…. have a deeper understanding of who our God is and how much he LOVES us!  We have been making our way through the book
and it has been a great book to share with our children.

I am learning to…. crochet new dish cloths.  I am also educating myself more about food and the chemicals within it as well as how our bodies react to the lack of the vitamins it needs.  

A new resource is…. the States, A 3 DVD set celebrating all that makes this nation great

Got the idea to do wrap ups from Mama Buzz (see icon on the right hand side of my blog), but she is done for this school year. So I am not linking this back to her blog.
