End of School Year Wrap-Up

I think I am going to print this blog for my school records, or create a snapfish photo book...not sure which one to do yet...but I thought I better add these remaining pics from our school year if I do choose the blog print! Too bad I can't really remember what we were exactly studying/doing for each photo, but oh well, here it goes! :)

These photos were from our study of Russia...I absolutely cannot remember all the stuff we did for this country, but I'm sure it was enriching and wonderful :) Here was our version of nesting dolls...nesting boxes painted and decorated with stickers of authentic Russian outfits on them. They are still on the card table in the school room awaiting a coat of decoupage so the stickers won't fall off...ah, real life is refreshing to hear, isn't it?

Antarctica was our last continent in ECC. We had fun studying it, I think. Here was our iceberg experiment, showing how most of the iceberg floats under the water.

Zeke and Abby took an art class for homeschoolers in a nearby town this year. I think it was great for them to learn some of the basics, since I'm not very good at teaching art, music...all those extras...I loved all of their work. And yes, their portfolios and pieces are still sitting on that card table in the school room waiting to be showcased somehow!

And here are Zeke and Abby at their piano recital. I was so, so proud of then both! Zeke was amazing playing his piece at the recital! They both learned so much this year! Abby is not fond of being the center of attention, so she did not want to participate in the recital, but she still did all the required work to earn a trophy!


  1. I love the artwork! Sometimes our co-op offers an art class but I would love to find a local homeschool art class taught by a pro. Better yet, I wish my sister-in-law lived close so she could teach the kids. She is an art teacher at a private school.

    Great job documenting your school year!

  2. It was very nice to have this class for them! I will probably take the art class again in 2 years...

    My sister is going to school to be an elementary art teacher too!

  3. You first need to select the positions on your North Face Jackets leather jackets to place patches. You can select locations such as the back of your jackets. Arms are also a very good place to position your patches. Belstaff Bags You can position your patches that you think it will look its best. Just don't place them over seems and pockets. You can use measuring tape to align your patch straight if you want. Otherwise randomly placed patches also give a good look. You can just add patches and leave the rest of your leather in the same way if you want. Cheap Ugg Boots But there are tons of other ideas too to make custom leather jackets.
