In week 7, we continued reading about Abraham (Genesis 17-21) while also returning to ancient Egypt. The kids attempted to make papyrus paper using grocery bags and glue (above). We read about hieroglyphics and practiced some ancient Egyptian writing. Below is supposed to be the kids names, Caleb's is in blue.
I also started reading aloud The Cat of Bubastes by G. A. Henty. So far, we are really enjoying it. It starts with some graphic battle scenes which Caleb loves. It's written in older English, which was a bit difficult at first, but once the story got going, even Rebekah was enjoying it. Each chapter takes about 45 minutes to read, so we'll be reading this book for a few weeks.
