Weekly Wrap Up: Isaac

Last week turned out to be one of those weeks where you're grateful you have the flexibility that homeschool affords. With Hurricane Isaac forecast to visit us here in southeast Louisiana, we chose to go visit my grandparents in Memphis.

We had a nice time visiting Memaw, Papaw, and Aunt Donna. Kate and Sarah were wonderful hostesses and let us thoroughly take over their house.

We arrived Monday afternoon and didn't return to New Orleans until Friday. As I type this, it is Monday night (Labor Day) and we are still without power from the storm.

A few things we did that can count as schoolish:
1. We went to see the ducks at the Peabody hotel in downtown Memphis. We're calling it a field trip on the theme if Ping. It's kind of a silly parade of 5 ducks, from the elevator, down the red carpet, and to their fountain, but the kids thought it was fun.
2. We own a whole stack of Kumon workbooks for fine motor skills like folding and cutting that I never get around to assigning during school time. I took them to Memphis and just let the kids do them for fun. They put quite the dent in them! So, fantastic fine motor practice last week.

That counts, right? We're starting our week back with school tomorrow, power or not.

I'll add photos from this week to next week's update since it's a pain to blog photos on my phone.
