Our second day of school went great!  Ryan had fun building and sailing his very own models of the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria.  We read about and watched a video (Drive Thru History) about the history and adventures of Christopher Columbus.  Ryan got 100% on math today – YAH!!!  We also learned how to label key words when doing a Bible study, did some copywork for history, listened to and read the words of My Father’s World (and discussed how God shows Himself to us through nature), and a few other activities.  Ryan will start his language arts and spelling program next week.  Here are some pictures of his day:

I don’t want to leave Brendan out, but since he won’t be participating in as many hands-on activities I won’t be sharing as many pictures of his work this year.  But, I do have to say that he is doing WONDERFUL with his high school work so far!  I am very proud of how he is taking initiative, following instructions, and working independently!  Below is a picture of his Week 2 checklist:
