2015-16 School Year–Week Thirty-One

We’re almost done!

This was a short week. We’re down to the last two chapters in the Mr. Pipes series. We worked on math review (before the final exams) seemingly unceasingly. We learned about New Zealand and the Gold Rush in history. Turkey and Bunny have been learning about the brain and nervous system in science, while Ladybug has been focusing on true bugs. We’re almost done with the The Trojan War…we read about the fall of Troy, and all we have left is reading about the return of the heroes after the war. We’ve also had some fun field trips, which I will go into in further detail in future posts.

Just a few more days of school, and the 2015-16 school year will come to an end!

Quote of the Day

Did Ferris Bueller go to my high school? I have to admit, I laughed more than I should have at this line!

It’s a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school. Matthew Broderick as Ferris Bueller in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Golden Sunset

Tonight was one of those nights where you glance over at the window, realize the curtains are glowing, and determine that you need to check out the sunset:

I was not disappointed. The northwest sky was a beautiful golden shade, and even with the trees and the houses obstructing the view, it was stunning!

The Last Day of Fourth Grade

Today is Moose’s last day of fourth grade. I have a lot of apprehension at the end of a school year, because the coming year is a big unknown. For right now, though, I’m focusing on the fact that we have a whole summer ahead of us to make memories and have fun together!
