Today, we had a social studies lesson with The Story about Ping . There is a family that lives on a houseboat on the Yangtze river. Luckily, Joel grew up in Seattle and they have lots of houseboats there. He was able to tell Hannah some neat things about the houses that are in Seattle. We also have a friend who grew up on a boat in the Caribbean, so I was able to share with her the stories that I heard about growing up on a boat. Later today, we'll continue the study with a bowl of rice for lunch!
We made it through our first week! One thing that we figured out is that Friday, our Sabbath, is not going to be a school day. Which means that Hannah will have "class" six days a week when including Sunday School.
Next week, we are reading Madeline, so I better start finding my pictures of Paris!
