Week 9 (2015) Short School Week

Week 9
March 9th-13th

Week 9 was a three day week for us. It totally threw me off for the rest of the week because Wednesday was like a Friday, so Friday I thought it was Saturday.

We had a three day week because my 5 boys and hubby were off to the Alert Cadet camp. They help out twice a year with updating the bathrooms. It’s a big camp and many of the bathrooms were not in use for a while. My boys along with other Alert Cadet boys and dads help fix them.

Annette and I had mom and daughter time. It was great!

Our morning started with butter coffee for me, French pressed or pour over. It’s so good.

And the kiddos start their morning with oat meal, shhhh, I add grass fed gelatin and coconut milk.
I love my rice cooker. I put the oats, coconut sugar, gelatin, salt, and some apple cider vinegar in the night before, set the timer, and in the morning it’s ready to eat. I sometimes put rice in there for sweet rice in the morning. I make it the same way but add vanilla.
Thankfully Lance and Ethan got some school done before leaving.

Lance is completing his Writing and Literature PACE.
Ethan is completing his Social Studies PACE. We call it history.
Both boys are loving an online reading program or at least it encourages reading. It’s not teaching reading. The storyline keeps the boys interested. The book is Orphs of the Woodlands.

The two boys also completed their GPA Math and earned a few eGift cards (more about that in my upcoming review this week).

Ethan completed half a lesson of Greek Morphemes. I actually found him on his bed with his Greek Morphemes workbook. Wow, that’s a first. He’s never taken schoolwork to his cozy place.

Working out the words. I wrote the word on the whiteboard and we’d work through it together.
Then he’d write it in his workbook.

I was so proud of him and his neat writing.

Brent working on his reading too with StarToaster. They just love the program. I don’t have to ask them to do it!
Not the best picture but it’s the only one I have of him using Star Toaster.

Joshua worked a few hours this week. He’s learning the art of juggling work, school, church activities, and friends.


  1. Awww...it just seems perfect to have your son working at a coffee shop!!!

  2. I know right?!?!? It's pretty neat and I can't believe he's working.
