Leaving Norway

We actually officially left Norway last week, but it has been so pretty out that school has been light this week. We plan on arriving in France on Monday. Many may think that we never get anything done because we are always taking breaks, but with our schedule we actually get lots done.
We school year-round, only taking the month of August and a week in June for VBS in the summer. I don’t know about you but summers around here are just to hot and the kids always in up in the house anyway. And even when we do a “light” week the kids still have to do one lesson in MUS and Daily Grams. We also do reading in something daily which to them is not school because you can always find them with some sort of book in their hands daily, I guess they get that from me Winking smile .
Anyway back on topic, in Norway we learned about the many fjords and islands off the coast. Prince and Princessa both done drawings for their notebooks of the fjords:

We spent a lot of time on the Native Sami tribe, the kids seemed really interested in them. They also realized that when someone says Native tribe you can’t always visualize the dark skin of the Native Americans. Prince was interested in the Norse Myths also, “I let him read and learn about such things only because his faith and knowledge in God is strong.”
We also reviewed the Vikings and Leif Erikson’s discovery of North America and his role of bring Christianity to his people.
All in all we enjoyed our stay in Norway but look forward to France.
Thanks for reading about our week at Our Days at CA!
