Weekly Wrap Up, Wk 7 ~ The one where Montana Reads!!!

14Oct Misc 011

Montana read her first 3 words this week, I. am. Sam.  Yipee!!!  I have another reader in the house.  She was so excited today she did a little happy dance.  Let me share it with you.

We switched Phonics/Reading programs for an upcoming review I am doing, and let me tell you it is going so good!  Montana is so excited to learn to read and ready every morning for me, even if it is at 630am.  I am so glad I was chosen for this review and can’t wait to share it with you in a few weeks.

It was a smooth week for the older girls. Marie is doing excellent with the Sonlight switch, which makes this Mama happy.  She finished up Module 3 this week in Biology and scored an “86” a “B” on her test.  I ended up restructuring the way we are learning with Tapestry of Grace.  Don’t know if I mentioned it last week but I ended up combining Madison & Mikayla and doing the History portion as a read-aloud instead of individual readings.  It’s going well and everything was completed this week.  McKenzie has been working on stringing her beads this week. I love the concentration on her face.(Yep, even the baby wears leos on gymnastic days and baby legs for leg warmers).

Gymnastics and cheerleading are going fantastic!  Madison was able to ring the bell because she got her skill (the Kip) she needed last Saturday, so we are hopeful this will solidify her a spot on the Level 5 team. I attached the video clip so that family will see what I am talking about, Hi Grandma!!!  Marie’s cheer teams (she is on the Junior 2 and Senior 4) are sharpening up there skills because competition season begins December 4th.  Upon matching up cheer and gymnastics schedules we have a few conflicts but won’t know for sure how much we overlap until 1-2 weeks before the event.  I am looking on the bright side though because at least we are conflict free for the Nationals and State finals and for that I am thankful.  Especially since the Level 5 gymnastics meet is near West Virginia this year.

So, that was our week in a nutshell.  How was your week?
