Week In Review-Week #6

 Another week finished. This week I have been a little under the weather. Not sure if I am fighting a cold or allergies. We had a pretty light week. One day I just couldn't keep my eyes opened. I was up most of the night so we just did the 3 R's.

We are in Sonlight Core C week #6

Scripture memory this week Colossians 3:20.

Our read-out-loud is Ginger Pye which we got behind our schedule this week.

Monday-No therapy I had canceled last week with my van breaking down. I am liking not rushing out the door so early and having a full day of school on Monday. Well I better not get to us to it because we have a new used van.

The kids are still study the Vikings. We have been all over the map this week starting in Iceland, Norway, Greenland, and even had a stop in Ireland. The kids did a lot of stamping of their passports.

Bug started her Bob Jones English and Grammar 3 this week. It looks like the first chapter is mostly review of what we just finished up.

Bug is still struggling learning some of her addition facts. We tossed a bean bag back and forth while we said our addition facts. Little Man even joined in and we played for awhile.


Tuesday-The kids are still playing flag football in PE. It ended early because of it raining the last half of class.

After lunch we did the basics and learned about the Christians in Kazakhstan. Little Man is learning his first song at piano. He is learning Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Bug is no longer doing piano. It just wasn't her thing according to her.

Little Man is reading so well. What a relief after all of Bugs struggles with reading. I was beating myself over the head with her wondering at times if I was doing something wrong. Even through I knew inside that her disabilities are the problem not mom.

Then Little Man had his dramatic Dr. appointment that I will remember for years to come. Little Man doesn't see it as being humorous. If you haven't read the post you can read it here. It will make you understand a little more the mind of a little boy. He was up most of the night also. Don't know if that had anything to do with it. He woke up at 1 and didn't fall back to sleep again until 4:30. I was really tired.

Wednesday- I let Little Man sleep in. I did the bible, English, math, reading, and writing with Bug. Then put my daycare Princess2 down for a nap. I layed down for an hour or so until they got up. He had a free day besides him doing  bible and piano practice.

Thursday- we visited the church in Russia, Uzbekistan in our Window on the World book. We got a new date stamper for our passport books. The kids are amazed with the stamper. Doesn't take much to amuse my kids!

We worked on Kansas History and revisited studying Kansas neighboring  states. They also learned that Fort Leavenworth has been used continuously as a military installation longer than any other military best west of the Mississippi river.

Next stop with the Viking the kids made Viking jewelry after they raided my kitchen and stole mom's aluminum foil.






Friday- was gorgeous outside and Little Man just couldn't sit still. I thought about hanging him by his toes! He was practically climbing the walls. We worked on math, English, and writing. Then we had a few errands to run.

I was planning on doing school when we got back home. It was so nice outside so I pulled out the bubbles and we played outside. I am so glad I did. It was such a fun time with the kids. This summer we didn't get outside as much with it being so hot. I guess we better enjoy the nicer weather before we are stuck inside again for the winter. So the Viking runes and art projects, and geograpy will be there next week. I like staying on schedule. I know in the end that all of those crafts don't compare to spending precious time playing with my kids.

On a side note Bugs having fun with her Entomology. I had to put her frozen bugs in a larger container. We now have people even bringing her frozen bugs!

Mom even chased two bugs at the car dealership while daddy was taking a van out for a test drive. Talk about looks from people. Bug would of had complete melt down if I didn't make an attempt. I caught them up against the glass of the dealership and had a lady look out the window at me like I had just lost my mind. I guess I would of been thinking something was wrong if I seen me running around in the mulch and brushes up by the glass. Mom was victories with her catch. Later the woman came by and peeked in the office and Bug was humming loudly and reading her insect field guide. I am sure the woman thought Bug was autistic or something. I got a feeling that I am going to be doing some crazy things in the name of entomology and collecting insects. Oh well my Bug is worth all the stares and talk! I am sure it kinda like war stories of how you catch each bug. I am sure I am going to amuse myself and others in the hobby of collecting insects. Have a blessed week.
