School work

Jonathan and Madi are on week 8 of My Father's World 1850-Modern times. We are supposed to finish the Civil War this week, and move on. Yesterday I made the executive decision to stick with slavery and the Civil War for at least another week. There is way to much to learn about this time period and I'm not ready to move on.

Here's Jake working on his math this morning. Yesterday one of the things he had to do was throw a pair of dice then write an addition problem for his roll. Today he wanted to do it again, and he told me, he doesn't have to count all of the dots anymore he can "keep one number in my head" (his words)"then count the rest". Here he is using beans as counters to do some more addition.

We needed a lemon off our our tree for a science experiment to day. Madi took these picture to show how huge they can get. They will ripen on the windowsill.
