We talked about electric and electronic instruments and then Brady played with his toy electric guitar and keyboard.

World History:

We’re talking about Ancient Egypt (more about that here)

And in the kitchen we made these little mini apple pies

There is no better way to sum up my life pre-and-post child than to point out that Brady is using a martini glass to cut out the pie crust

And that was our week. How are things in your homeschool?
