Around the House :: Â Levi decided he was done with training wheels. Â Bob took them off, and off he went!
Sarah and Jacob did a Tae Kwon Do demonstration last weekend at our local Relay for Life event. Â I didn’t capture any great photos of them doing their thing, but I did get a shot of my BIL breaking cement.
In the Kitchen :: Â Meal planning is back. Â Last weekend my parents were kind enough to watch the kids for a few hours while we went out for breakfast and did some power grocery shopping. Â I loved having my shopping out of the way for the week, and it’s been so much better having a plan for each meal.
Faith :: Â I’m thinking about the new mass translations changes that are going to take place starting November 27th, the first Sunday of Advent. Â I have been looking at some resources so we can begin talking about these changes at home and be ready for them when they happen.
Little Kid Learning ::
Levi wanted me to take a picture of his Lego Creation. Â Not sure why he has the headphones on.
FIAR :: Â This week we rowed Truman’s Aunt Farm. Â I must admit this wasn’t my favorite Five in a Row book. Â I didn’t really get it, I mean I get the aunt/ant play on words, but didn’t really get it. Â The kids enjoyed the story and were eager to read it each day. Â Even the big kids liked to listen.
We made rice pudding, I’ll take any excuse to make rice pudding, and the kids had jelly sandwiches for lunch. Â No craft this week, we couldn’t even find a good ant hill to observe, maybe we will find one today.
Paths of Exploration :: Â Columbus finally got the okay from Queen Isabella to set sail. Â This week we talked about compound words, hurricanes, islands, and navigational devices. Â Paths of Exploration uses copywork several times a week, and in just the few weeks we have been back to school I have noticed a great improvement in their copywork. Â They are more attentive to punctuation, using capitals where appropriate etc. Â Jacob has been doing all of his copywork in cursive and fairly neat cursive to boot! Â I will take these small successes.
We are taking the day off today and Monday to enjoy the long weekend. Â Today it’s supposed to be a high of 96 and 90% humidity, Monday it’s not supposed to reach 70. Â Here comes Fall.
Have a great weekend!
