Where the lad learns early start, early end.

Basics done quickly, wants to do no school at Gramma's other than playing a game and reading.

Schooling done: but I'm sick so stayed out of the way.    He did everything on his list easily and quickly.  He's learned starting earlier means he is done earlier.  New sword was made.

On fire with life today, schooling done quickly.   No Foodbank since I was still sick.
Sword broken in stupid accident.  New components purchased.  My fault the accident happened so headachy and icky feeling out we went to get needed supplies.    The lad worked on his iceberg experiment.   This is a redo of the experiment we tried last week but there were too many variables that were problematic.  The lad took the initiative to reconfigure it to be more accurate.  This allowed me to introduce writing a lab report in practice.  Been talking about it, now doing it.  He dictated this one to me.


On fire: schooling done quickly.
Introduced: reading about Canadians.  Picking one from three books I have, reading it and then telling me about it.   He was supposed to read one chapter but forgot the other day so read two today.   He narrated about Norman Bethune and Madeleine de Vercheres.

We had a pleasant surprise of learning more from an ART video about the human skeleton than from some of the medical ones we tried.


I woke up feeling hollow and rather late...the lad was doing well with his schooling and was almost done. I asked him what his plans were for when he finished his schooling... he said "build a new sword mom". I said okay... build a sword! I got a Huge THANK YOU and a hug and off he went.

Fridays is our do it different day... we do almost everything differently except for bible and history. We normally do art, some type of STEM project and a fun word knowledge book. The work he does building a sword easily qualifies as a STEM project so it was easy to let him go. 


The lad had "cadet-o-rama" today so was gone most of the day. Hubby and I went out for breakfast and then since he's still not feeling well from the bug that soared through our house this week we went home and chilled.

I got a HUGE number of blog posts up and scheduled. We chatted and watched movies and just had a lovely quiet day. I also got the young bunnies photographed and my website updated. A good productive day.

  1. Sorry you weren't feeling well during the week, but glad that your son is learning the important life lesson of getting things done sooner rather than later! That's a lesson *I* still struggle with sometimes! LOL Thanks for linking up at Homeschool Highlights - have a great week!

    1. it's good to have him learn this...although the negative is that it keeps me moving along as well.. (or is that a negative?)

  2. I hope you are feeling better soon! Thanks so much for linking up at #familyfriday we appreciate it! We hope you come back next week.
