Here are a couple of pictures from my husband's trip to Nicaragua with BMDMI. Aren't those twins cute?! A sewing group at our church makes little dresses and hats year-round to send to the girls down there.

My parents were in town a couple of days for week 7, but we managed to get the work done. His attitude was worse, probably because he was anxious to be done and just play, but in reality it made things take longer! We went to Minds in Motion as schedule for 2 afternoons, and he enjoyed that. He also had a field trip to a local nursery with our library's home school group so learned a bit about plants.

Handwriting - lessons 13, 14

We are continuing with piano lessons and are up through lesson 16 on freepianolessons4kids. We listen to our monthly hymn, folk song and composer study music almost daily (see amblesideonline.org for more info). He resists art study more this year than last - possibly because impressionism isn't his thing, or maybe because I'm asking a little bit more of him. The habit of attention is one he struggles with, so focusing on a painting for a full minute or two is a challenge for him. I have him focus, then we flip it over and tell what we can remember and talk about what we missed when we look at it again. Short and sweet, a la the Charlotte Mason method.
He has gotten to where he enjoy Rosetta Stone for Spanish, and the BBC's typing lessons for kids. We do those 2-3 times a week.
In follow-up to listening to Romeo and Juliet (Nesbit's version) last week, we watched the BBC animated production, which he enjoyed. (Here are other Shakespeare animated tales.)
Next week starts the month of October. This means new songs! Also, public schools are taking fall break, but if I'm not babysitting, I'll go ahead and "do school" on those days. I really have no idea what next week will look like!
I'm linking up to the Charlotte Mason Blog Carnival!
