Week(s) in the Life (On a Binge-Watch)

Well, here I am again. Weeks behind, so much happening I have no clue where to even start. I am sure this post will be as jumbled as my mind feels.

We had just settled into our new rhythm quite nicely when the girls came down with another viral infection (and not at the same time either). So our lessons were more scattered.

It was during this time Little Sis and I became engrossed in America’s Next Top Model, and all of the family started watching Hell’s Kitchen on Prime. I don’t get as surprised anymore at all the many learning trails these shows inspire. Little Sis and I watched a video this week on the history of Japanese fashion and The Origin of Everything’s episode about the history of high heels.

Little Sis was the first to be inspired by Hell’s Kitchen to plan out a day’s meals. She chose a completely vegan menu.


She chose tofu scrambled breakfast burritos with spinach and mushrooms for breakfast,


and vegan “Philly steak” sandwiches with regular and sweet potato fries for dinner.


She made vegan pumpkin pie with homemade vegan whipped cream for dessert.


Everything was delicious. She is becoming quite the chef.

She also made vegan brownies and cookies and cream mug cake (not vegan).



Since on the subject of Little Sis, she had her cheer state competition. Though her team did not place, they were so close in points with the third place team that they won the wildcard bid to attend Nationals in Chicago this summer. She is very excited.

There was the usual homeschool gym and having friends over.

Sky took a CPR class and passed the certification test. She has been continuing with her independent studies.


We went to see Infinity War twice, once at the theater and once at the Drive-In with A Quiet Place.

I had a birthday and celebrated Mother’s Day by being able to read the second installment of the Roxane Weary novel series(that just happened to be released on my birthday) What You Want To See by Kisten Lepionka, in one sitting. Yes, it was that good. I will try to wait patiently for the next installment.

Sky and I watched Crash Course movie history episode 12, film production episode 7, and sociology episode 12 on YouTube.

We also watched the 1967 movie, Bonnie, and Clyde.

Violet’s spelling words started with the letter o, so we watched videos about opossums, the oboe, and Oman.


Little Sis and I read Who Was Jane Austen and she took notes.


Sky and I watched The School of Life video about Jane Austen on YouTube.

All of us watched the BBC 2009 adaptation of Emma.

The girls are almost finished with the fraction portion of volume 2 of Learn Math Fast. I added in grocery circular math lessons to help the girls learn how to give change without the use of a cash register.

I think that about sums everything up.

Peace for the journey.
