Anthony: math, copywork
Ben: math, copywork

I got sidetracked making pretzels, so everyone only did the minimum of math and copywork. The weather was fine and they wanted to be out of doors. They put on a play for themselves on the patio, ran around in costumes in the yard.
Story time: The White Stag, Alfred the Great, St Margaret Mary.
Bedtime : Egyptian Diary.
Sophie is reading a Vision book about St Vincent de Paul, the Bible, The Neverending Story, a Melendys book (I think it’s Then There Were Five). She’s starting the Winged Watchman. She recently finished The Borrowed House.
Bella has been dipping into The Lord of the Rings this week. She’s reading Chasing Space and re-reading The Borrowed House.
Anthony’s been reading The Last Battle and the Rube Goldberg book he got for his birthday.
Thursday March 29
Running errands, library, grocery store, clothes shopping. So not much schoolwork happened. Though I was proud of Anthony opening his math book and doing a few problems on his own with no prompting from me.
Dom did some astronomy videos with the boys for cub scouts.
Friday Mach 30
Good Friday, no school. I spent the morning making traditional hot cross buns. We went to the Liturgy of the Passion at 3pm and came home and had buns and then ate dinner shortly after. The boys had cub scouts in the evening, an astronomy lesson.
