|Lydia and Grace are learning the thumb piano (acango) - my favorite! Their teacher is Benya.|
|Luka is learning the local harp called a dungoo. Music doesn't come easy to our family but Luka is trying hard. I love to watch him concentrate so hard. His teacher is patient and encouraging.|
|Lydia and Grace learn so fast. There are not really note but just playing by hearing it and memory.|
|This is the biggest thumb piano in the set. I think they are a work of art and their sound is beautiful. This one is so old and well used it has large indents where the hands rest.|
|Malai mostly goes to practice to hold baby Aaron - he is so cute!|
Then those learning practiced with a local band to do a choir in church. I loved listening to them!
|Obule Band - oh, Luka is missing (playing soccer I believe).|
|We got to be the judges. Grace won for presentation, Luka for taste and Lydia for creativity.|
The kids did it all by themselves and really got into it.
|Then we had Cheese it Tuesday.|
We dressed in orange, had to guess the flavor Cheese it (thanks Grandma for bringing them), and had orange punch.
|Then we had orange races. (Yes, our oranges are green.)|
|And we did art with oranges. Always good to be creative.|
|And Renaissance Wednesday.|
We have been learning about the Renaissance and Reformation in History class so we had what I call "active learning" (that's how I explain to our neighbors all the strange things we do).
|Luka is a artist and Emalai is a queen.|
|Grace is an explorer and Lydia was our Reformer|
|The kids were in pairs to go on an exploration together. They had to build a "ship", make their flag, find something new, gold and come back for their reward.|
|Here they are sailing their queen.|
|I didn't take pictures but we also had Fun Friday with games and sweet prizes.|
Thanks Grace and Luka for a fun week of learning!
I am thankful for the flexibility and creativity in homeschooling. We are one week from finishing our school year!
|It is harvest time in Obule! We praise God for consistent rains and a harvest!|
We were able to help our neighbor who has a lot of pain harvest her millet.
We are learning new things.
|Sorghum growing - beautiful blessings|
