This was one of those nothing exciting or terribly out of the ordinary kind of weeks. I'm glad because my headaches were especially persistent this week, so I don't know how much exciting or unusual I could handle.
We started back with our Classical Conversations group after a 2 week break. It was nice to get back into the routine. I LOVE tutoring my little band of minions, and the kids really enjoy seeing their friends. The highlight for me was our science activity. I have been dreading this part of our science because it focuses around astronomy and that kind of stuff, and I don't really like that kind of stuff. I like things I can get my hands on. It's hard to get your hands on a star.
However, for our science activity, we made a scale model of the solar system in the parking lot. And I have to admit, it was super cool. It really helped me to put the concept of the solar system into a perspective I could grasp. I tell you, I learn so much more teaching my children than I did in 16 years of school.
