week 2

boy holding cake artIt’s been a good week of lessons here.  The kids have been enjoying learning about our solar system.  Gracie is getting in on the fun too and often shouts, “We live in Erse and the sun is so so hot!”  In our book about James Monroe, the boys recognized some of the locations referenced because of our trip to Williamsburg–the governor’s palace and William and Mary College.

So thankful to have two weeks under our belts without much loss from our summer rest.
