It is now the end of the second week of school. I have been a bit busy in the first few weeks, so I haven’t found time to write about it till now.
I am now taking three classes at school and four “classes” at home. In school I am taking English III, World History, and Physics. I will give a short description of each, which should be enough for the rest of the school year.
In English, we are reading early American literature, such as Puritan poems and sermons, or the accounts of John Smith and the founding of Jamestown. We are going to be reading The Crucible next, which I gather involves the Salem witch trials.
In World History we have just finished learning about Egyptian society and will learn about Sumerian History next.
In Physics, we are learning about classical physics, specifically 1D motion. We have done some simple problems, such as:
Pretty simple to understand, as long as you know what formulas to use.
I am also doing DDF again this year. I am doing debate, which is about 9/11 security measures, etc. I am also in a funny mime about mankind and weapons. I may also be in a Reader’s Theatre, possibly from Young Frankenstein.
My sister is also going to be in the school band this year. Since my mom didn’t want to listen to my sister playing the trumpet, she bought my sister a electric bass guitar. My uncle picked one out (an Ibanez GSRM20) and mailed it up to us. See pictures below.
My mom went with a friend out to see the bears at the Chilkoot River and got a nice view. It was a bit dark out, so some of the pictures below are a bit blurring, since I didn’t tell my mom how to adjust the ISO.
