Seven and a Half Weeks In

The Hellion is seriously kicking butt this year!  I am so proud of him!  He is flying through his math books.  We are almost 1/2 way through this year’s work already.  We are now only doing his workbooks 2 days a week.  I don’t want him too far ahead.  We are having fun with his science and history this year.  The Hellion is actually enjoying learning about US history.  We are going to take a short break and do a unit on the Titanic, something he just started asking about.  We are even going to the Titanic Museum over Christmas break.  He is seriously excited about that!  He has also started building the Titanic on Minecraft.  It is interesting to see his ideas of it before we have even studied it.  I can’t wait to see what he does with it after we have actually done some studying on it.

We have a couple of big projects that we will be starting soon.  We are going to be doing a project called The Island.  It is very involved, with lots of writing that incorporates all kinds of other subjects into it as well.  The Hellion is looking forward to it, even with all the writing.  We are also going to be working on a bio-dome.  Very interesting yeah I think!
