This week, my wrap-up has to do with some of the fun things going on around my house this fall!
Baseball. As long as we’re in the post season with the World Series still to come, I can pretend that summer lingers on. My guys and I were thrilled with Roy Halladay’s no-hitter…only the second time in MLB history that a pitcher has made such an accomplishment in the post season!
Bonfires. My boys had several of their friends over last weekend for an all-night bonfire/campout. As with all my boys’ gatherings, there were no nail polish fumes or chick flicks to be had…
Basketball. Yes, I’m mentioning two sports in the same post. That’s because basketball practice has begun, with our middle school boys’ schedule getting off to its official start in just a few weeks. We had a get-together with the families last Tuesday, and I am enjoying the fellowship of these parents! It’s going to be a great season…as long as I keep the duct tape handy to “tame my tongue” when we play those certain teams that definitely qualify as arch rivals! :)
Books. David finished The Scarlet Letter this week as part of his Notgrass American History curriculum. That story never gets old, and we had some great discussions surrounding its plot, characters, and human elements.
Bands. Speaking of bands, which I just did LOL, if you’re in the Cincinnati area, you’ll want to go to The Underground tomorrow night for The Battle of the Bands, and you’ll want to vote for DANYA, a great message, a great sound, and a great group of (all homeschooled/homeschool grads, btw) kids.
Big news. Derek and I have discovered a Latin program that is actually fun! And we are learning the language together! Any time I spend with my middle schooler is a blessing, and this has become a special part of our school time that we both look forward to. Be sure to read my review of Visual Latin.
