Friday- Week in Review for Mei

Mei is the dd of a good friend who was with us 2 days this week. Mei is in the 5th grade and here is what she did at my house.

We didn’t do any ABFIAR, except that she did finish reading John Audubon: Young Naturalist. Next week hopefully we can find the end of this rabbit trail and return to Hitty.

Mei is a hoot. Tuesday night we went to family night at a Chik-Fil-A where they have a young lady who paints little things on the children. Mei said that she wanted to get something on her face this week. Well, she definitely got something on her face.
We added the ears back at my house.

I can’t talk Duncan into a little alligator on his arm, but Mei comes back to the table painted as a dalmation!

Memory Work
This week for memory work we reviewed our material and continued to work on the witches’ chant from Macbeth (Double, Double Toil and Trouble). Science was our only new memory work this week.

  1. Your little dalmatian looks adorable! Thanks for sharing your week!

  2. Both of my girls loved Ballet Shoes. My older dd has reread it several times. There is a movie available from Netflix (and perhaps at Amazon too)for Ballet Shoes that the girls really liked.
