Tapestry of Grace: Year 2, Week 1

We had a great first week of school!  We started this year by reviewing the basics of the Roman Empire, and then looking at how it all fell apart.  We studied about the barbarians who invaded from multiple directions, and learned a bit about their culture.  Did you know, we get the term vandal, and it's connotation, from an early barbarian tribe called the Vandals who pillaged parts of the Roman Empire?! : )

Here are some photo highlights of our week back to school!
We are really enjoying the Veritas Bible program.  Repetitive, and easy for them to understand.  They're really concreting the stories and facts...

Our first paper mache success!  Thank you, Elemental Science.  

All About Spelling.  Fun.  Colors.  Tiles.  Hands on.  So far, so good.

Make our balloons into globes! They had a lot of fun with this project... we'll finish it next week.

And, Kiryn got a sari.  And then she wore it for the rest of the week. We had an Indian princess at school every day. 

We had a great week, and read some beautiful books from Tapestry.  But Hannah left this weekend, and we will miss her dearly!  I'm not sure how I will function without her!
She became a part of our family, and we love her so much!
