Life here are Our Busy Homeschool is never boring. With Mommy already beginning to feel the joys of morning sickness we’re working on consistency in the basics and flexibility for everything else. This week’s homeschool happened at all hours of the day or evening, which is very unusual for us, but we just have to do it when I’m not trying to throw up. Here are the highlights:
We’ve been using a new building set this week as a family called CitiBlocs and having a great time. Watch for my review next week! Five Little Peppers and How They Grew is our family read aloud for Book Club. I had never read it and so far we are all enjoying it. The older children have also written, practiced, and performed a new play every night at dinner. They’ve ranged from originals like Rat Attack to their own interpretation of Hercules and the Monster.
Makayla pushed through another week in Math U See Gamma and is so ready for things to get easy again with the next book. She’s doing great though, as long as she keeps her attitude in check. Her botany has been waiting around for one of our flowers to bloom in the backyard for an experiment. It finally bloomed today, so we’re heading out back this afternoon to get to work while we enjoy the sunshine. She’s enjoying Vikings in history.
Joseph still finds math easy and likes it. Can all my children be like this please? He’s read several readers to me this week. His favorite subject has been science though. He’s still working through Rocking Robots and bravely writing in most of the answers himself – something that is quite a challenge for a 6 year old boy.
Emma’s big accomplishment is she finished her Bees lapbook this week! She worked hard on it and I’m so proud of her. It makes me a bit teary-eyed because she’s the same age Makayla was when we first discovered lapbooking. Time flies! She’s also keeping up in math and history just fine.
Daniel has not wanted to do anything this week but play. Guess what – that’s fine with me! He’s 3 and playing is hard work. He read a few books with mommy, but mostly he has been busy with toys.
Oliver’s favorite thing this week is catch. We have to keep an eye out because you just never know what he’s going to throw at you next.
Caleb is 6 months old today. I can hardly believe it, he’s growing so fast. He was sitting at dinner last night snacking his lips and trying to get everyone’s food so we finally let him try solids.
