Weekly Wrap-Up - Week 10

Week 10 was a busy one for us filled with exciting field trips!  We went to Gettysburg on Tuesday (that deserved it's own separate post which you can find here) and to the local 911 Dispatch Center on Wednesday.  We owe a big Thank You to Granddaddy for coming out to watch Allie so we could participate in the Gettysburg trip!!  The 911 trip was a little harder as I had to chase and uncooperative 2 year old around the building.

In the "Situation Room" learning what it's used for
For writing we learned the proper way to compose a letter and wrote Thank You letters to our Ranger from the Gettysburg trip.

The finished product
In math both kids continued with multiplication.  Megan is working on multiplying by 2 digit numbers and Michael is working on learning his multiplication facts.

In science we started learning about the skeletal system.  Did you know that bones are constantly reforming and in 7 years the equivalent of all news bones are grown?  We also began cutting out our skeletons to make our models.

We have a busy weekend ahead.  We will be spending this afternoon at Michael's soccer tournament cheering on team Germany and hoping that The Machine makes it to the championship game Tuesday night and we then will be heading out for a haunting Halloween night of Trick or Treating tomorrow!


  1. Wow! What a great week you had. We went to Gettysburg this past summer and had a great time!
    Loved looking at your week.

  2. Wonderful field trip week! I'm jealous.

  3. Oooh, How I wish we could visit Gettysburg. We're just wrapping up our study on the Civil War and that would've been a great way to end it. Although I'm sure there are a couple, or 20, places here in VA that we could visit instead. LOL

  4. Great field trip!! Looks like a wonderful week:)
