Winding Down, Preparing For Guests, and Big Beautiful Roses.

Well it looks as though another week has come and gone.

We finished up the discussion questions from the movie we watched this week, Rear Window. Like I mentioned earlier, it really turned out to be a much better movie than I had anticipated and we enjoyed discussing the literary elements of the movie as well. Next week we will move on to the writing assignment. This is Baby Boy's least favorite part of the whole process, as you can imagine. He doesn't really enjoy writing. I don't know where he got that from, I could write about anything or nothing all day long. I tend to be a little on the wordy side. LOL.

We also took a test today in Geometry over parallel lines. Baby Boy made a 90%. I'm pretty proud of him considering his intense disdain for all things mathematical - except for counting money, which he LOVES.

He's actually very good at all of his subjects. He's just at that age where he doesn't want to be bothered with his dear old mom for much of anything. Right now he's too excited to be bothered with school work, because one of his dear friends from out of town is coming in tomorrow and he has to get his chores done today if he wants to spend time with him. This is a dear friend who moved out of state a few months ago, and will be in town for the weekend, so they're going to get together and "play." Do teenage boys still play? Well, I don't know what exactly they are going to do, but whatever it is, Baby Boy is excited about it.

Next week will be our final week of school before the Christmas Break. I'm planning a few fun things, and kind of winding things down and finding a stopping point for everything. Since we ended a chapter in Geometry today, I'm not going to start a new one until after the Christmas break. Baby Boy doesn't know this yet, but will be very excited to find out.

Anyway, that just about does it for the week-end wrap-up.

Oh, before I forget, here are a couple of photos of the art project we worked on over the past few weeks. We are learning about complementary colors and monochromatic color schemes. Baby Boy and I both struggled a little with these lessons, but luckily, beauty can be determined differently in the eye of the creator and the beholder. So look at these beautiful roses with your heart's eyes and not your physical eyes. *SIGH*

So Without Further Ado . . . Big Beautiful Rose
