Forth of July Week, Day Two

Yesterday was another fun day at Summer School. We read a story about Paul Revere and learned about the Revolution. We sang “You’re a Grand Old Flag” and learned about the song “Yankee Doodle Dandy”. I didn’t know that the British started the song as an insult to the colonist. The highlight of the day was fireworks in a glass – don’t worry there were no explosives in the house. Here’s the link http://www.ehow.com/how_2077266_make-fireworks-glass.html. Monday’s lesson about the 13 colonies, reminded them of Pocahontas. We watched that in the afternoon.

A New Month

Here we are again, another month in the history books. For me it’s a time to reflect on my goals from June and set July’s goals. Summer is going way too quickly. I’ve done many of the things I wanted with the kids, and there are a few more I’m still hoping to squeeze in. I want to work on sewing lessons – at least mending – and a little more cooking practice.

I hoped to get 12 scrapbook layouts done in June. I’m making progress with 9. I’ll shoot for 11 in July. I didn’t get as much writing done as I had hoped, but Family History was way over the top! I’ve added 55 names to my PAF file this month. I will keep plugging on with my writing and family history in July.

What are you working on in July?
