Homeschooling - 23.5 Weeks In

   In the last week, ZoKo started her new Science Textbook, "Understanding God's World" (ABeka, grade 4). She finished reading "Stories Mother Nature Told Her Children" (Jane Andrews) and "Face To Face Wolves" (Scholastic) for Science Reading. She Finished her grammar textbook, "Language 3" (ABeka grade 3), but has not yet started "God's Gift Of Language A" (ABeka grade 4). She also completed the Twilight Saga by finishing "The Short Second Life Of Bree Tanner" (Stephenie Meyer). She has yet to pick out a new Independent Reading Series to take its place. She had a slow week, between illness and runs to doctor's appointments both locally and in Columbia for her brother.
