We have had a nice, busy couple of days! I have us scheduled with alot of reading this week, so we can finish up Week 3 of our Ambleside year plan. We are all enjoying the reading, and the variety of stories we are being exposed to! It's so much fun! Also, we still have so much time to be outdoors. Yesterday, Riley said, "Mommy, it's like we have a little bit of school to go with our bike riding!" (My mom bought the girls bikes while she was here... another post on that later, with pictures!) But it's not like we're slacking on our learning. Today we did math, copywork/dictation, reading, and grammar, as well as reading stories from Dangerous Journey, The Princess and the Goblin, Michaelangelo, and a short biography of Martin Luther.
My hymn-loving friends will enjoy what happened with the Martin Luther story. At the end of the story, the author shared that Martin Luther wrote hymns in his life, including ______ (the name of the hymn which I forget now). We looked on that CD that Riley had checked out from the library, and sure enough, it was on it! We listened to it, and it was pretty cool! Then I read the lyrics aloud --- which went right over my head --- and it was neat to know those were Martin Luther's own words!
Well, it's time for the RDI webinar, so I'd better close for now!
