Hello everybody! Today I'm back with a little Abeka Academy homeschool inspiration. Today we are on lesson 104. Mr. Bucy keeps us on our toes in English class. He was teaching the class how to recognize predicate adjectives and how to diagram them. He reviewed the steps of the writing process and introduced the upcoming research paper. Sydney isn't real thrilled to have to write a research paper on top of all of the other assignments she has due, but it's one step at a time, one day at a time. The project will be broken down into bite size chunks that she will be able to manage. We will get through this. Welcome to 9th grade English! :o)
In health class we reviewed previously taught material on good hygiene practices. We looked over the personal checklist to see where improvements could be made.
Miss Burns was teaching about good oral hygiene. Take good care of those teeth and gums. As it turns out Sydney has an orthodontist appointment tomorrow.
In science class we were learning about transverse and longitudinal waves, compression and rarefaction pulses, wavelength, amplitude and frequency. We were also able to watch another student's science project presentation.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous today, 70 degree sunny weather. I'll take it! We opened up some windows to let the fresh air in. Spring is in the air!
For a special treat I made some homemade strawberry shortcake. It was the perfect complement to go with the fresh strawberries and whipped cream I had in the refrigerator.
Happy Wednesday y'all! "Life is what you make it." Make it delightfully sweet. :o)
Tuesday Highlights : Selling LEGOS on Ebay, Shopping at Ross and Hobby Lobby, A Delightful Dinner and Dessert
Hello everybody! I'm back again today sharing some of the highlights of this beautiful Tuesday. I woke up a little early this morning so I would have extra time to work on taking some photos of a couple of Aaron's Lego sets to sell on Ebay. I'm glad he is able to recoup some of the money that was spent on that hobby over the years because it was expensive. He doesn't build with Legos anymore, instead he's been building a computer. He'll be able to reinvest the money that he earns off of Ebay on computer upgrades. Multiple streams of income baby!
Clint had some appointments to go to today so Syd and I rode along with him so that we could all go to Ross and Hobby Lobby to look for some wall art for the bathroom and bedroom.
Ross did not disappoint!
I am getting this picture of white flowers for the bathroom! I love it! It's going to match perfectly!
There are many things at Hobby Lobby that I would LOVE to buy... with so little money to spend on them. :o) This place is heavenly! Their 40% off sale is speaking my love language. ;o) I will return!
Syd was loving this picture. Mister Rogers!!! It's a beautiful day in this Hobby Lobby!
NOT IN THE MOOOOOOOD
Well hello to you too! :o) This is definitely my happy place!
Well... hours later... from the "farm" to the table... back to reality... it's time to get dinner on the table.
~ meatloaf, baked potato and cauliflower ~
I made a small batch of scotcheroos for dessert.
The new wall art for the bathroom looks GORGEOUS!
Happy Tuesday y'all! FORWARD momentum!
Hello everybody! I hope ya'll are having a great start to the week. I thought I would share this week's meal plan for anyone looking for kid-friendly meal ideas. The breakfast and lunches are geared more toward Sydney, the last school age child we have at home. She's a full blown teenager but she still loves her kid-friendly lunches. I usually eat yogurt and berries for lunch, or salad and some protein, or better yet, leftovers from dinner.
I'm going to go ahead and get breakfast ready, but Syd is going to help me make dinner this evening. She is having turkey bacon, a blueberry bagel with mixed berry cream cheese, along with a side of sliced bananas topped with chopped walnuts.
I'm going to do a similar version of Syd's breakfast only I'll add a pepper ring with one egg, and spread a little butter on the bagel instead of the cream cheese.
Today in science class we started a new chapter on waves and sound. We also got to watch three students give their science project presentations. "All Greased Out" was our favorite presentation because it was a project that involved experimenting and collecting data on french fries from Burger King, Steak & Shake, McDonald's and Wendy's. The results obtained from the experiment were interesting. As it turned out Steak & Shake served the greasiest fries.
Today in health class Miss Burns was teaching a chapter on personal hygiene. It was all about the skin, your protective covering, the largest organ of the body. The layers of the skin - epidermis - dermis - hypodermis. "Be good to your skin. You'll wear it every day for the rest of your life."
Syd volunteered to help me make chicken fajitas for dinner tonight. They are super quick and easy to make. As I was cutting the pepper into strips, I noticed that it looked like it was smiling at me. "Awe Bell No!"
There's my girl! She's throwing sass around like a spicy chili seasoning. :o) She's way more sweet than sassy though.
It's time to saute the onions and peppers.
We set up a little mini salad bar.
"Live today like you're getting fried tomorrow." - Chicken
Great job Syd! It's delicious!
Happy Monday ya'll! Talk to ya soon!
