Parkour! (63/180)

Robin started his Parkour class at the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts.  No picture, because I was at a birth and did not attend.

All the kids attended their first day of classes at MAHC.  W is taking 1000 Blank White Cards, 90 Second Newbery, and Scratch Programming.  R is taking Juggling, Robotics, and Hula Hooping.  D is taking Me on the Map, Art, and Constellation Celebration.  J is in the Nursery class.

W, R, and D had soccer practice and soccer games (lose, tie due to ref error, and lose.)

W played D&D twice and R played once.

W began in the Teen Program at MAHC with a science class.

All of the kids participated in worship, singing, hearing music and sacred words.

We were lucky enough to go for a visit with the kids' great-grandparents and their great-uncle.  They like experimenting with physics in the elevator:



D and J played a very elaborate game in which they made various potions for various purposes and set up shop:





W read independently: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1)The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams


R read independently to his siblings: I Say, You Say Animal Sounds!I Say, You Say Animal Sounds! by Tad Carpenter


I read to them: Katy's Gift: An Amish StoryKaty's Gift: An Amish Story by Keith Bowen


The Lost-and-Found ToothThe Lost-and-Found Tooth by Louise Borden


W, R, and D continued with their LOF books.

They watched documentaries and listened to podcasts.

They exercised.

This week included 7 days of instruction. (Look at  us, zooming past 1/3 of the required days by mid-September!)
