I am so happy to be back in the swing of things. I had to take some time off because I was dealing with my father passing away. Now that I am back we can get back to work. This week we have been focusing on realistic fiction and how authors use different characteristics to build their characters. Also, we have jumped into weather. I hope you all can begin looking at our wonderful Oregon weather and encourage your children to make observations. Thank you all for your patience while I dealt with supporting my family. Have a great night and wonderful weekend as we have no school on Friday.
