We spent most of our Monday in and out of the house viewing the eclipse as it slowly progressed. When our day ended we gathered our books and headed outside to enjoy the beautiful weather.
We began reading Augustus Caesar's World and the story began with the death of Julius Caesar, which of course my Little Toughie found sad. Sometimes the readings are a bit long so I end up reading it to them while they have their lunch. So far we're all enjoying it, but then again I've always been a fan of Roman History.
We also began science this week. We're starting with Human Anatomy. They did a great job on their Cell Anatomy pictures:
We aren't following the My Father's World recommended science since my daughter really enjoyed Apologia's Science and wanted to use it again. I simply looked at what MFW had listed as the science focus and selected the corresponding Apologia books. Plus, we already did the human body project a few years ago when we were still participating in Classical Conversations. Eventually, we'll be moving onto Astronomy toward the end of the year.
That's about it. All the excitement of Monday's eclipse subsided into a quiet week; another one in the books!
