So, what did we learn last week?
Bible - We are studying the life of Joseph. Last week, we studied how his brothers sold him as a slave. We talked about how jealousy and lying anger God.
History - We are still learning about Ancient Rome and the Roman Empire. We learned about how towns were set up in grid patterns and about the layouts of the houses of the wealthy people.

1st Grade - Little Red continued her review of the letters and their sounds.
Preschool - Sassy and I spent time learning about shapes. We used the Lauri Fit-A-Space puzzles to sort shapes and play games with the shapes. One game we played was Sassy had to close her eyes and choose a shape out of the pile. Keeping her eyes closed, she had to determine what shape the piece was by feeling it. I absolutely love how she says the word "parallelogram".
Also last week, the Children's Choirs at our church performed their summer musical. Each year, the rising 6th graders perform the drama for the musical and all of the choirs (grades 4k-6th) sing with it. Since The Boy is one of those rising 6th graders, he was a part of the drama. This year's performance was Kings, Dreams, and Schemes, and The Boy had the role of King Belshazzar. He did a great job!
