We have been working industriously this week to get enough of our school lessons done to have the whole week off for the week of Thanksgiving. I admit I am so looking forward to the break! I've been itching to get to some baking, and am definitely looking forward to spending time with extended family. I love the Thanksgiving holiday!
So since school is mostly what we've done this week (with a few fun activities thrown in to keep us all sane) I thought I'd share a few pictures.
I have to admit to a fondness for charts, so I try to insert them into our curriculum whenever I can. Here's a few from this week's lessons.
Working on a puzzle of U.S. Presidents to go along with the Artist's History studies.
Here is my Princess with her word wall and her latest favorite book When the Elephant Walks.
The Professor working on a writing project.
We tried our hand at making corn husk dolls. The Princess seems to think they're some sort of novelty, and is having quite a bit of fun with them. And I'm wondering why I should give her store-bought toys for Christmas if she can be happy with something this simple? Kind of makes one think...
My boys love to do science experiments. Here we were testing the effect different enzymes would have on a variety of foods. The gelatin we used was different than any I had used before, and had the distinct smell of a very dead animal.

This weeks reading material: The Moral Compass. The Professor picked this book out for one of his writing projects. After looking it over, I thought we could all benefit from it.
And last but not least, some fall-themed treats that were almost too pretty to eat :)
