A week in the life of homeschoolers - Week 29 & FreeBEE Friday Link Up

Week 29: 
We had a super busy week and they are going to continue to be busy. Gwyn had her soccer evaluation on Sunday and is very anxious to get started. We will be doing the Upward soccer program again. We had three days of Valentine fun you can view that post here. There are also a lot of photos from our week on that post as wellence the reason there are not many on this post this week. Monday we also did our usual library run and storytime. On Thursday we went to see Snow White a production put on by the Atlanta Ballet. This was the first time the kids have ever seen a professional ballet production and they LOVED it. Afterwards we worked on our Lion/Africa unit study. Friday we will be staying home no fieldtrips or activities planned thank goodness., this sick momma needs a break. So we will be focusing on our Lion/Africa unit study, money and letters. And on Saturday while daddy is at work we will be doing some homeschool stuff as well. We will probably start our Presidents Day stuff.

I couldn't get many pictures of the ballet because you couldn't use flash and we were far away but this is one of the better ones I got. It is the very end of the show were all the performers come out to take their bows.
