I've debated about going back and filling in the months that I've missed. A few things in April, but then it was mostly May. It was then that my world was rocked and this summer has just not been what I had expected. I thought I'd get caught up and well, life has taken twists and turns that were unexpected. By me that is. God has it all in His hands and none of this is a surprise to Him. I'm thankful that He is walking with me every step of the way.
So, while some of this is not new, I still wanted to post some of it for people who might be interested in our Beyond FIAR co-op activities. I have two more posts to finish up that co-op and then will be ready to head into our new year. (We will be working on Volume 3 of Beyond this year.)
In this co-op, we covered chapters 7-9 and the topics of hard choices, wells and hauling water. We started a game based on making hard choices. Each student drew a scenario and read it aloud and then talked about how they would handle the situation. Excuse the smudge in my pictures. My little camera assistant doesn't always leave me with a clean lens and I don't always remember to check it. LOL
One team had dirt.
In real time, I'm working on planning co-ops and field trips for the upcoming year. Lots to plan and I'm hoping to be done with some of it soon.
In other exciting news, I am counting down the days until Christopher comes home. Eight if anyone is curious. I can't wait!!!
