Well despite the fact there may be an hour or two left in the voting the outcome has been decided. (Yes, we operate here like a small third world country and we’re happy about it.)
We’re heading to the Old City walls Wednesday morning. We actually asked a friend of Erika’s if he wanted to walk the walls with us so sorry to anyone who voted after Friday at 1pm EST.
However, Sunday we will be going on our first long field study trip of the year. We leave the school front gate at a loverly 7:00am. And with a 30 min walk to get to school you can do the math on our alarm clock settings. We will be sure to take some pictures and Erika will have some commentary on something she learned. (It’s my assignment to her.) Neither one of us is taking the field studies for credit; we’re just tagging along for the experience and to learn a thing or two. However, Erika is using the information for review in her end of the semester History/Geography/Archaeology comp.
What’s a comp? A comprehensive test over everything she’s learned about the subjects above. For those who went to (or are in) college, you know the difference between your final exams between college and High School? This is the next click up. So… she better learn something and to prove it we’ll have her post what she’s learned.
So you’ll probably get that report first and then later in the week you will get the Old City wall walk posting.
Boy I’m glad my husband doesn’t give me homework assignments! What kind of grading scale do you have Bryan? Hopefully you’re not too easy on her. 🙂
Well it really sound exciting to see and be in the actual places from the Bible. Glad you got a second chance to see and appreciate it. Some of the whatever must of rubbed off of Bryan so you can concentrate on your lessons. Maybe you pay more attention this time because you are paying for it. ha Luv gr
Glad you chose the wall, cause that is what I voted for! 🙂 Dad and I loved the city wall walk. It provides an interesting perspective on the City! OH, and Bryan, keep that whip cracking. There will be no slacking on Erika’s part! 🙂
Love you both,
RPNI? Not sure who THAT is, although it COULD be my big sister rOni, but she was a teacher, her spelling isn’t THAT bad. 🙂 Hope you have fun on your boring city wall trip. Let me know when the REAL danger comes in… Since you once again survived Hezekiah’s tunnel. *whew*
Well… lets see it’s 2am in Israel and still no commentary on field trip. Obviously Bryan is being a little too soft on Erika if she hasn’t completed her homework yet!
Awesome! Sounds like fun. Can’t wait to see the pictures!
