22nd and 23rd Week of School Report

I didn't get to a weekly report so this is 2 weeks report. I'll probably forget something since this was two weeks ago.
Week 22: We only had school on Monday and Saturday. Tuesday we went to get Aunt Hannah from the airport 4 hours away. Tuesday was a very long day and no one felt like reading or doing school in the car. Wednesday-Mama and Aunt Hannah went to high tea and we had church in the evening. Thursday Mama had a cold and didn't feel like teaching. Friday was Lamb 1's birthday and Lamb 1 also went to the eye doctor.
Week 23: We had school on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday. On Monday Lamb 2 went to the eye doctor. On Tuesday we took Aunt Hannah back to the airport. On Wednesday we did our school in the car on the way to church in the eventing. On Friday, Mama had a headache in the morning (which improved after I did Neti pot!) and our babysitter came in the afternoon.
Math: Finished lesson 14 in MUS.
Reading: We read volume 3 of My Book House. We are still memorizing Bed in Summer by R. L. Stevenson. We read Tigers and Sails and ABC Tales (Virginia Museum of Fine Arts) recommended by Veritas Press (also art appreciation). We read The Big Green Pocketbook (BFIAR) but did not do any activities with it.
Phonics: Lamb 1 continues to do well in Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading.
Religion: Memorized Psalm 107:1 for Sunday School. Continued to review the commandments with Sing the Faith CD.
Music: Began reading The Story of the Orchestra by Robert Levine. It will take us awhile to complete this but the Lambs are learning a lot just reading a couple of pages a day and listening to the CD section with it. Lamb 1 received his cabaca for his birthday so we've had lots of playing music with our instruments.
Latin: Continued to listen to the CD with Prima Latina.
Art: Painted with babysitter twice.
We didn't get to much science or history to talk about here.
Handwriting: Lamb 2 continues on his worksheets from and he does a little better every day. I have been working with Lamb 1 on some of his letters and numbers that I've noticed he doesn't write correctly in his writing of thank you notes and school (especially "a" and "8").
We don't have very much on the calendar this week so I'm hoping that everyone stays healthy so we can put a good week of school in this week before we get closer to Holy Week and we will take another school break. The snow is melting and it is wet and very muddy outside so I don't really want the Lambs outside too much right now. Our church had to postpone their annual ham dinner because it was so muddy there was no place to park or walk. Aunt Hannah helped us clean up and organize our basement so it is better to play down there. Hopefully our sump pump and dehumidifier do their job down there!
