Homeschool Hi-Lights: Extracurricular

Ellen from Fun Learning is hosting a meme called Homeschool Hi-Lights. To participate, write a post about a highlight from your past week of home learning, then go to Fun Learning's Homeschool Hi-Lights post for the week and add your post's permalink to Mr. Linky.

We finished up our early colonial times studies last week. Our unit celebration will coincide with a birthday party in early June, so that post will have to wait.

The highlights of last week revolved around extracurricular activities. Allyson and Kathryn had their spring piano recital on Friday, and Nathan and Jordan participated in a 6-hour mountain bike endurance race on Saturday.
This was Kathryn's first big recital. She played three pieces from her lesson book and did a wonderful job.Kathryn
AllysonAllyson performed two pieces from her lesson book and In Dreams from The Fellowship of the Rings movie. She played beautifully.
Nathan and Jordan got quite a workout on Saturday. They raced for 6 hours as a 2-boy team against adults. The race producer suggested that they race in the Advanced Open class as there was no one else in that class when they signed up. This was their first cross-country race, but they signed up for the advanced open class anyway. Nathan rode four and Jordan rode three 7-mile laps.
The boys took third place in the advanced open class (out of three teams). However, they would have also taken third in the sport class (where they would have raced), so they deserved it. :-) They each won a vest. This is a picture of the boys with their spoils.The Spoils
Have a wonderful and adventurous week of learning!

Your girls look so pretty playing the piano. Our boys have been learning to play piano this year too.

Your boys did great on the big bike race. That's a lot of riding!

What an exciting weekend your family had. Your kids should be proud of themselves and what them accomplished.

I see real evidence here that you are sheltering your children from the outside world. They never get out and about or socialize with anyone, do they??

:] Good post and I liked your pictures!
