Revival to Revolution:
Wow are we putting weight on around here these days - which is good for my skinny guys, but not so great for the not-so-skinny me.
RevtoRev has got Wyatt cookin' up a storm, and we are all loving his sweet creations. There is an ongoing battle about whether "English Tea Cakes" or "French Tea Cakes" were the best. I like them both, naturally.
Here are the English tea cakes...
(And a "no" to the tea as a protest - in history - that went along with the tea cakes - check out the angry little guy - yikes - I wouldn't dare serve him tea)
And here are the French Tea Cakes...
For Wyatt's DITHOR project for the Biography genre, he chose to do a newspaper report on Emma, the undercover spy from "Behind Enemy Lines". He did so well! He worked hard on this. It really was a wonderful book. Riley and he chose to do different projects, and they are both sharing them this weekend for one of our "Family Nights". It should be fun!...
I had a few rookie mistakes in starting RevtoRev - because I
didn't read the directions carefully enough. One of them was to tell Wyatt the hard plastic axle was a glue stick for his Exploration Education racer he was building (no, the axle WILL NOT melt, and he sure gave it a good try
). I didn't remove the State Study answer key, and Wyatt thought he was supposed to look up the answers in the key - yeah, a stretch - but I believe him because he told me he loved his state study because it was so easy just to look up everything on that "one" sheet.
I have since removed the key.
Wyatt was memorizing the wrong part of Hebrews, and I didn't catch it until a week in - but the good news is those verses showed up in his "Who Is God?..." study. Being the good natured son he is, he said, "Hey, Mom, these are the verses I memorized that I wasn't supposed to, but look, I needed them here anyway!"
I smiled and told him the Bible is like that - every verse is good to know.
I also didn't notice the different names for the music CD's for Music Appreciation.
I sure confused my ds there. Anyway, I am hopeful I've got things ironed out now. I always find with a new guide I need to learn a few things myself. I'll be a real pro by the time I'm doing RevtoRev with Emmett.
Hope you are getting into a good rhythm too!
